Since forming in London in 2006 where they recorded their debut album “This City Needs a Hero”, with Grammy nominated team Colin Richardson and Matt Hyde, CrashCarBurn have been dominating the local airwaves of their home country South Africa. Armed with an arsenal of powerful rock anthems CrashCarBurn was set to impressed audiences from the word go.

Polished videos and spontaneous live shows saw the band selected to play alongside international acts Korn, 30 Seconds to Mars, Good Charlotte and Muse at “My Coke fest 2008”. Following up with hit singles like “Heroes” and the anthemic sing-along favourite “Get Away”’, CrashCarBurn quickly solidified their place in the SA music scene.
