CRAWLERS have released their eagerly awaited debut album. ‘The Mess We Seem To Make’ via Polydor Records and have some vinyl copies to give away. Find out more below…

Speaking about ‘The Mess We Seem To Make’, singer Holly Minto says, “This album debut comes from us honing our craft, being vulnerable with each other, finding our sound and saying exactly what we wanted to.

I think that’s a lot of what the Crawlers sound is, being honest with each other about how to get the correct emotions out – trying, failing, and pushing each other to keep playing and writing to the limits.”

True to their word ‘The Mess You Seem To Make’ takes on a whole range of challenging topics; trauma, sexual politics, mental health, the general goings on in a young person’s life. Across the record, feelings of loneliness, insecurity and toxic forms of dependence are held up to the light and examined in close context.

It digs deeper into what fans already know and love about Crawlers’ eclectic alt-rock sound and builds on the relationship of trust they have with producer Pete Robertson and engineer Tom Roach at Liverpool’s Coastal Studios, crafting anthemic rock songs where each member’s playing personality can truly thrive.

Rather than forcing themselves in any one sonic direction, they maintained the free-wheeling spirit of 2022’s mixtape ‘Loud Without Noise’, producing a striking debut which has amassed 20 million streams to date and cements their status as the UK’s next big crossover alternative act.

The Mess We Seem To Make’ features 12 tracks including previously released singles ‘Call It Love’, ‘Would You Come To My Funeral’ and ‘Kills Me To Be Kind’ which continues to receive strong support at BBC Radio 1. CRAWLERS Maida Vale session with Clara Amfo went live on Radio 1 this week on Valentines Day – the same day the band celebrated their first Kerrang! cover.

The Mess We Seem To Make’ features 12 tracks and is available on various formats including Deluxe CD, Standard Vinyl, Blue Splatter Vinyl, Band Cassettes and a Glitter Cassette. The Chalkboard Splatter Vinyl available via Blood Records sold out within an hour.

CRAWLERS formed in 2018 and spent their first couple of years honing their formidable live reputation by playing intimate shows around their home turf of Merseyside. It’s an approach that paid off over the past year, when everything has stepped up a notch or five for the band with their intoxicating live set wowing crowds at Glastonbury, Download and Reading & Leeds festival where they will perform on the main stage this year, marking their second consecutive performance there.
