About this new track, FELLOWCRAFT comment: « Coyote And The Desert Rose is a dark, brooding, emotional song inspired by a migrants journey to a better life, while leaving behind everything they loved. The juxtaposition of hope, and hopelessness propel the narrative to a deathly conclusion. The song’s instrumentation parallels the story, being told in two strong, dynamic movements; the first hopeful and propelling, the latter sad, and depressive. »
FELLOWCRAFT are set to release their third album ‘This Is Where You’ll Find Me’ in February 2021, which will feature guest performances by Nate Bergman (Lionize) and Chris Dale (Bruce Dickinson Band). It was recorded at Ivakota Studio in Washington DC alongside Tonio Ruiz (QBO, Coda, Agora, Jet Jaguar), marking the band’s second collaboration with the Mexican rock producer.

FELLOWCRAFT is an indie prog band from Washington DC. Jon Ryan MacDonald founded the band in 2014, but it’s only by 2016, after the addition of Brandon Williams (bass), they had quickly become a familiar face in the local DC music scene. After years of playing the local venue circuit, the band underwent a major rebrand, and embraced a whole new sound when Pablo Anton (lead guitar) and Zach Martin (drums) joined in early 2019. Their unique sound, which includes a myriad of rock styles, sets them apart from other bands.
FELLOWCRAFT are known for their energetic stage performance and have been very active for the past four years, playing almost everywhere in DC (the Black Cat, Pie Shop, DC9, Rock and Roll Hotel, Union Stage, and even the hallowed 9:30 Club), touring the east coast and Mexico (where they’ve graced the stage at the legendary El Plaza Condesa in Mexico City, and performed at the Hell and Heaven 2020 festival). They’ve shared the stage with Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Asesino, QBO, Phil Anselmo, Static-X, Amon Amarth, Deep Purple, Powerwolf and Manowar, among many others. In 2019, their single “Hold The Line” won a Wammie (Washington Area Music Award) for Best Rock Song, and in 2020 they were nominated for Best Hard Rock Band for the single “Glimmer of Faith”.
