The Great Crusades

The Great Crusades

Say what you will about this ragtag bunch of lifelong musical cohorts, but the Great Crusades can claim longevity, prolificacy, and a never-say-die attitude among its attributes. Like many of the bands they admire, such as the Jayhawks, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and Kaiser Chiefs, the Great Crusades seem to be in it for the long haul—they keep writing outstanding tunes, pursuing new artistic directions, and playing mind-blowing live shows.
Vocalist/guitarist Brian Krumm gathered the current band members in Chicago more than 15 years ago, including collaborators Brian Hunt (bass), Brian Leach (guitar/keyboards), and Christian Moder (drums/keyboards). Krumm had released the band’s first album, The First Spilled Drink of the Evening, in 1997 while based in Champaign, Illinois, and moved north the following year.
Now, the band members are putting the final touches on what will be their eighth studio release, Thieves of Chicago. The Great Crusades will join such respected label mates as the Bottle Rockets, Cracker, and Sons of Bill when Blue Rose Records (Abstatt, Germany) issues the album in Summer 2014, to be followed by a North American release. Boxing Clever Records (St. Louis, Missouri) will also release a limited edition seven-inch single featuring the Great Crusades in early 2014.
