Crumbsuckers was an American crossover thrash band originally formed by bass player Gary Meskil in 1982, in his home town of Baldwin, Nassau County, New York.
Crumbsuckers amalgamated thrash and hardcore punk sounds and themes, making an immediate impact on the wider scene with its1986 debut album, Life Of Dreams.
Though the band was supported by its fanbase and fellow artists, Crumsuckers second album, B.O.M.B., failed to deliver on expectations, despite the musicianship displayed on the recording. The departure of key lead vocalist Chris Notaro in 1988 heralded the start of the band's gradual decline, despite Crumsuckers attempts to create a new identity for itself. Even so, the band had already firmly cemented themselves as pioneers of the crossover thrash movement.
Crumbsuckers played its latest reunion show (with Chris Notaro on vocals) at the 2015 Black N' Blue Bowl Festival at Webster Hall (formerly The Ritz) in New York City on Sunday 17 May 2015.
