The Crawling have spread the misery drenched album through a strong live performance, with support from a loyal fan base; most notably appearing at Inferno Metal Festival (Norway), Bloodstock Open Air (UK), Seige of Limerick (IRE), Metal Days (SLO), Shellshockfest (Malta), Uprising (UK), Incinerationfest (UK), Mammothfest (UK) and Full Metal Mensa (GER).
Set for release on Friday 16th November 2018; ‘Wolves and the Hideous White’ features six brand new tracks, building on the sound of their debut. The album reflects upon the human desire to belong, the sacrifices made to be part of someone, disillusion from loss of self, and the final inability to escape.
Vocalist/guitarist Andy Clarke comments;
“Wolves and the Hideous White is an evolution from the debut album and transcended
from misery into disgust. I have continued to explore human emotions, and as always, our music is inspired by what I see in the world that surrounds me. We live in an age where people have become detached from each other, but the inherent craving to be with someone is overwhelming. As a species, we are programmed to search for a mate, and the majority will sacrifice anything to get it; including themselves.”
“This album came together quite quickly and was created with extremely focused efforts. The music, lyrics, and content reflect this with a more venomous edge than what came before.”
