Interview With Shaun Smail Vocalist – Guitar Of Spiral Crush 2018




With catchy, hard-hitting riffs, heavy bass and relentless percussion, Spiral Crush is one of Michigan’s emerging rock bands that cannot be ignored. Consistently delivering high-energy, unforgettable live performances, this band reminds us what loving and experiencing rock ‘n’ roll is all about. Their sound is diverse and contains undertones of classic and alternative rock.


Spiral Crush consists of brothers Shaun (vocals/guitar) and Scott Smail (drums) along with longtime friend Jimmy Conrad (bass). Growing up together, this trio always knew that music would be a part of their past, present and future. Their shared passion for music, from writing to performing, is one of the many reasons why they work and play so well together.


The band independently released their self titled debut album in 2001 before Scott and Shaun joined another band, Throttlebody, which featured Andy Patalan and Kyle Neely of Detroit rock band, Sponge.


In 2007, the guys came back together with Jimmy and released their second album, “Nothing to Lose.” The title track, “Fall from Grace,” and “Bottoming Out” showcase their “in- your-face rock ‘n’ roll” style which has been well-received by Detroit rock stations 89x and WRIF 101.1. Spiral Crush continues to build a solid reputation as an aggressive, American Rock band, and has shared stages with national acts such as Buckcherry, Seether, Jet, Sponge, Halestorm, and many others.


Spiral Crush will be back in the studio in this June to record their third album and continue to work on setting precedence throughout the Midwest as a talented, genuine rock band that is to be reckoned with.
