Los Angeles-based indie band Starcrawler have announced the released of their new album, Devour You, out October 11th via Rough Trade.

Produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, L7) at Sunset Studios, Devour You 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.” Pre-order Devour You HERE. The album will be available on limited edition black/red marbled vinyl, with a scratch and sniff sleeve.

To kick off the album announcement, Starcrawler dropped the heavy, swinging and brutally catchy “Bet My Brains” alongside its manic and murderous music video, which you can watch below. “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.”

Starcrawler will bring their quintessentially crazed and chaotic live show—an impressive spectacle that’s simultaneously lurid and sublime—on the road this fall for a headline tour of North America with more dates to come in the UK, Europe and Japan. The dates kick off October 4 in San Diego, CA and conclude with a homecoming show at Los Angeles’ The Fonda on November 9. The run includes two special shows at Third Man Records – Hell Night in Detroit and Halloween in Nashville, TN. Prone to spitting fake blood and slapping phones from the hands of crowd members, de Wilde has proven to be a captivating, once-in-a-lifetime performer. “We want to put on a real show and give people some kind of escape from all the shit going on in the world,” she says.
