Starcrawler Announce Second Album ’Devour You’


Los Angeles’ Starcrawler will release their remarkable second album ’Devour You’ on 11th October on Rough Trade Records. Pre-order/pre-save it and hear/watch the video for “Bet My Brains” here*

*Limited edition, deluxe LP comes in blood-red marbled vinyl, with a scratch & sniff sleeve. All orders of ’Devour You’ on the Rough Trade Records webstore come with a free fanzine, subject to availability, whilst stocks last.

’Devour You’ dynamically captures the essence and aggression of the foure-piece’s gloriously unhinged live shows. Produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, L7) at Sunset Studios, the record takes the feral intensity of their 2018 self-titled debut and twists it into something grander and more gracefully composed. With its more elaborate and nuanced yet harder-hitting sonic palette, the result is a selection of songs radiating both raw sensitivity and untamable power, and a record that the band’s Arrow de Wilde says, “encapsulates all the blood, sweat, bruised knees, and broken fingers of a Starcrawler show.” 

To kick off the album announcement, Starcrawler share the heavy, swinging and brutally catchy “Bet My Brains” alongside its manic and murderous music video. “That song came from thinking about the tunnel people in New York and Vegas and the Catacombs in France, and the underground village of people who live in the sewers of the L.A. River,” says de Wilde. “I was fascinated with the fact that there is a whole other world happening right under our feet.” Guitarist and vocalist Henri Cash adds: “Arrow and I hadn’t even talked about it yet, but I’d already written something about the same thing—about how these people’s eyes adapt to pitch-blackness, and they end up going crazy from never seeing the sunlight.” Check out the song and Jellyclaw-directed video here.
