Starcrawler Announce Sophomore Album <i>Devour You</i>, Share Its First Cut

Los Angeles punk outfit Starcrawler have announced the details of their forthcoming sophomore album Devour You, set to arrive Oct. 11 via Rough Trade.

The follow-up to the band’s 2018 eponymous debut, Devour You is described as capturing the feral intensity and “blood, sweat, bruised knees, and broken fingers” of the band’s live shows.

Blood, sweat and bruises, indeed—when Starcrawler first stepped out of Echo Park obscurity in 2017, the band quickly gained notoriety for their batshit and dynamic stage presence, which often involved frontwoman Arrow de Wilde spitting blood and snot-rocketing into the audience.

The band’s bizarro magnetism is carried over to the album’s newly debuted first single “Bet My Brains,” an anthemic cut with scuzzy, stadium-rock guitars, deadpan vocals and a riff reminiscent of a college football fight song.

“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,” frontwoman de Wilde said in a statement. “I was fascinated with the fact that there is a whole other world happening right under our feet.”

Starcrawler will embark on a headlining tour of North America in support of Devour You beginning in October. You can preorder the forthcoming release here and check out the band’s new single, album details and full slate of upcoming dates below.
