Crywank is a self-described “anti-folk” band hailing from Manchester. Appealing largely to the sadcore genre, the band was formed in 2009 while vocalist/guitarist and founder James Clayton had apparently “never played guitar before”. The band’s first release came about in 2010 with the full-length James Is Going To Die Soon. It was then followed up by 2012’s Narcissist On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown and 2013’s aptly named Tour Demos 2013. 2013 also saw the release of Tomorrow Is Nearly Yesterday And Everyday Is Stupid, which saw the band gain more popularity. 2014 followed with the EP Shameless Valentines Money Grab, and the release of some early Crywank demos from 2009-2012. Their first album properly recorded in a studio, Don’t Piss On Me, I’m Already Dead, was released in 2016. Crywank announced in 2019 that they are intending to break up after a world tour in the summer of 2020.
