How we became

17 crash

Driven by the passion of drummer Phil Hill and singer Ros Crash, Tuscan-based 17 Crash began their crazy journey back in 2011 and that’s exactly when we’re setting our time machine off to travel back in time to the very roots of this band. 

At an earlier stage, 17 Crash were a true and vibrant synonym of vintage 80s LA Glam Rock Style: big hair, leather pants and loud guitars. Distinctive attire features and growling sounds finally merged into the debut album “Reading Your Dirty Minds” (2015). Right after their first release, the band toured extensively throughout the Italian peninsula while making sure the name of the band was being heard. 

It was now time to evolve and to explore new sounds, something that could really be identified with the inner soul of the band. It didn’t take that long until they found what they were looking for and that’s exactly what came forward with the release of the second studio album “Hit The Prey” (2018). Finding the right balance between the 80s sound and modern AOR, with the new record the band definitely marked a significant turning point both in terms of musicianship and career approach. 

Another two years of touring passed until a further stage of evolution with “Through Hell And Back” (2020) reconfirming previous collaboration with long-esteemed colleagues Alessio Lucatti in production and Simone Mularoni for mixing and mastering. The third chapter written by 17 Crash featured groovy heavy riffs, polished sounds and even sharper tunes, effectively establishing the band as a true landmark not only within national borders but in the international hard & heavy landscape as well.

2022 is about to witness the release of the fourth album “Stamina”, a much more complex and profound piece of work written entirely during the endless lockdowns the 2020 pandemic made the world experience. 80s reminiscences cross a particular duality between human struggle and the will to fight and resist against all the odds. 

It might seem they’ve come a long way, but rest assured they are just warming up for what’s to come.
