The Steel Crows: Reshaping Classic Rock with a Modern Edge

Orlando, Florida, has birthed a new force in the rock scene, and they go by the name of The Steel Crows. A band that thrives on infusing classic rock with a contemporary twist, The Steel Crows are set to unleash their debut album, aptly titled The Steel Crows, on January 12th. This eight-track masterpiece not only pays homage to the timeless sounds of the 1970s and 1980s but also positions the band as pioneers of a new wave of rock enthusiasts.

The journey of The Steel Crows began in Naples, Florida, where lead vocalist and guitarist Henry Minor kindled his passion for classic rock. At the tender age of 16, he took the initiative to form a band, and the flame kept burning brighter. However, it wasn't until the band's relocation to Orlando in August 2022 that things truly began to take flight. From the humble beginnings of local dive bars to their first out-of-state show, The Steel Crows have rapidly cultivated a following of over 22,000 fans across various platforms.

Drawing inspiration from rock legends such as Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, and Guns N' Roses, The Steel Crows have crafted a sound that pulsates with driving rhythms and captivating guitar riffs. Their lead single, "Jenny," serves as a pivotal moment in their career, capturing attention and adoration. Tracks like "Isolation" and "The Place Where No One Can Hear You Scream" further showcase the band's ability to traverse a broad emotional spectrum.

The latest album promises to be a diverse musical journey, featuring tracks that explore psychedelia, hair metal, and honky-tonk. It's a testament to The Steel Crows' evolving sound and their potential to push the boundaries of the classic rock genre.

Beyond their musical prowess, The Steel Crows bring a visual dynamism to their performances. Renowned for their flamboyant fashion choices, including bell bottoms, colorful dress shirts, and Chelsea boots, the band ensures that each show is a unique spectacle. It's not just about the music; it's about the entire experience.

Henry Minor encapsulates the band's ethos succinctly, stating, "We use music to express our views on various issues and to tell our stories. Our goal is to connect with the right audience, hoping they appreciate not only the music but also the messages we aim to convey."

The Steel Crows are not merely reviving classic rock; they are injecting it with a newfound energy and relevance. Their journey from Naples to Orlando is a testament to their dedication, talent, and the transformative power of music. As they gear up to release their debut album, The Steel Crows, on January 12th, get ready to witness the emergence of a new dawn in classic rock. The Steel Crows are here to reshape the genre and leave an indelible mark on the world of rock music.

Clairo becomes the latest in a host of artists to cancel shows in the last week due to a global rise in COVID cases.


Yesterday (December 19), LCD Soundsystem cancelled the remainder of their 20-show run at Brooklyn Steel, while Enter Shikari also postponed the rest of their 2021 tour dates and some 2022 shows, saying that “the safety of our crew and our audience will always come first”.

As it stands, Clairo is still set to head out on a 2022 North American tour, which will kick off in February and feature Arlo Parks as support.

For both the US and UK/EU tour, Clairo has partnered with SafeTour and Calling All Crows for her 2022 live dates “to provide a safe and harassment-free concert experience”.

A representative from Calling All Crows will join Clairo’s touring team to respond to requests for support through a text helpline and provide “proactive canvassing of each concert, [as well as] messaging and educational support so that attendees can take part in making these shows and their own communities safer”.
