Following the bands triumphant performance at Bloodstock Festival last year, as well as their recent run of dates with Carcass, The Crawling are finally on course to release their latest studio album ‘All of This For Nothing’ on July 28th.

The band commented on the album: “We are delighted to announced our third album entitled, “All Of This For Nothing,” which explores the futility of existence, and the difficulty of living in our current world”.

The album’s seven tracks, span over 43 minutes, and is set for worldwide release via Grindscene Records.

Vocalist/guitarist Andy Clarke comments;

Life is hard, very hard, at times almost impossible. I see more and more people make their lives so difficult with continued efforts to conform, fit in with societal cultures and expectation from so called peers. This is rarely effective, and often results in further misery and unhappiness.  The album looks at various iterations of this concept, along with the dreadful outcomes.

The lyrics explore the lack of personal accountability in life, and the ultimate realisation none of the inane aspects matter, as life is finite … and you only get one go. Life is a journey through a bleak, cold, harsh reality … that ends in a void of nothingness.

The stunning cover artwork was created by Travis Smith, perfectly capturing the essence of the album, and can be viewed below, together with the track-list below.
