Covering CRX's recent surprise shows in Los Angeles and New York, Rolling Stone noted that the band's "twin-guitar breakdowns and Cars-inspired hooks...will easily appeal to Strokes fans." CRX will make its national television debut on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Tuesday, October 11. The band will also perform a set on "Wonderland," a new weekly music show from MTV that showcases the best in new music, on Thursday, October 20.New Skin, the band's debut album, will be released on October 28 on Columbia Records.Fans who pre-order the album digitally will instantly receive the first single, "Ways To Fake It." Fans can stream "Ways To Fake It" HERE.NME observed, "'Ways To Fake It' is a stunning introduction to CRX. It's vibrant and visceral, rushing with excitement and hugely poppy....A bold, brilliant start that's made the wait for the guitarist to embark on his own adventures outside his day job totally worthwhile." Stereogumpraised it as "a hugely appealing riff-driven power-pop jam" and Consequence of Sound hailed the track as "pure LA alt-rock, crunchy enough to demand a dark club stage but with a sheen that suggests something much larger."Nylon called New Skin a "30-minute sucker punch of tracks" and Entertainment Weekly'ssingled it out in its Fall Music Preview of highly anticipated albums. New Skin was produced by Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme."One of the coolest things for me is that I began making this record as a vehicle to get onstage," says Nick Valensi, "but along the way, it started to feel like we were working on something more special than that. I'm excited to be singing and having a lot of fun with it, and I'm really enjoying the feeling of having to work hard to win people over. It's like being a kid again - like everything is new and kind of scary but irresistibly fun, too." CRX is: Nick Valensi (lead vocals and guitar), Richie James Follin (of Guards and Willowz - keyboards), Ralph Alexander (of The Dose - drums), Jon Safley (of People On People - bass) and Darian Zahedi (of People On People - guitar).
