Crooked X channel their youthful aggro-energy, hopes, and hormones into a 10-song, self-titled
debut album rife with searing guitars, passionate vocals and intense, radio-ready heavy rock.
Their organic sound was inspired by the ‘70s, but boasts a new millennium sound. Amazingly,
the members of Crooked X --who have been friends and playing music since fifth grade—are
now only 14, mere high school freshmen in Coweta, OK (population 7,000). Guitarist Jesse
Cooper emphasizes: “We don’t want to be looked at for our age, because our music is good for
any age. And, YES, we do write our own songs!” Crooked X cites everything from Pantera to
Hank Williams Sr. to Metallica as influences, and share songwriting and lyrical duties for a true
full-band collaboration. Crooked X’s MPM/EMI/Capitol self-titled debut (out January 27, 2009)
features the dark riffs of “Nightmare” (featured in Rock Band™), the first single, “Rock & Roll
Dream,” and “Adrenaline,” the subject of a Wayne Isham-directed video. Even before scoring
their 2008 deal with EMI, Crooked X were opening for KISS in Europe, touring with Ted
Nugent, and released (on October 7th, 2008) a digital-only release of the three-song EP, Til We
Bleed, for rabid fans of all ages.
