STARCRAWLER RELEASE NEW LP DEVOUR YOU
TODAY VIA ROUGH TRADE

LISTEN/PURCHASE HERE

ON TOUR NOW IN THE NORTH AMERICA
UK/EU/JAPAN LATER THIS YEAR



"a hard-swinging stoner-metal quartet with a taste for ’70s glam and dazed SoCal sleaze" - Los Angeles Times

"Boasting killer throwback verses with an absolutely lovely and anthemic chorus, ‘Hollywood Ending’ may be the start of greatness for these decidedly L.A. rockers...a damn near perfect pop song." - NPR Music

“The young pop-punk band is known for their high-octane live performances and their simultaneously zany and disquieting music videos; the group’s latest release [‘Bet My Brains’… is no exception.” - Vulture

"a glittery L.A. interzone between Seventies riff-rockers like Cheap Trick and the rougher, ponderous melodies of Dinosaur Jr." - Rolling Stone

"With a penchant for blood spewing, visceral, physical performance, riffs on riffs and a whole lotta neo-demonic growling — the young act, formed in 2015, has been hailed as the latest to “save” rock 'n' roll from extinction. Starcrawler doubles down across 13 tracks while flexing newly toned, musical muscles and more mature songwriting..." -
Chicago Tribune

"Explosive, gritty rock 'n' roll riffs." - i-D

"Somewhere at the intersection of '70s-style glam rock and punk sits Starcrawler, a young LA band that's quickly making a name for themselves with their grungy sun-soaked odes to their home city and their in-your-face live shows." - Paper


“A punky triumph that glistens with Hollywood history.” - Q (⅘ stars)

"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." - Paste

"with singer Arrow de Wilde, they have an unnerving focal point whose presence simply demands your attention. Live they're a spectacle. Brash and unpredictable, yet also one of the most engaging live acts I've seen in years...the most enticing characteristic of both band and record is undoubtedly Starcrawler's ability to flirt with then transcend genres with consummate ease." - Under The Radar

“I feel like Starcrawler, and in particular Arrow, are really challenging the norms in which women are seen in music.” - Shirley Manson


Beloved Los Angeles band Starcrawler are a band of misfit rock & rollers for a new generation. The visceral, not-to-be-missed experience of a Starcrawler gig perfectly melds a classic arena rock show with the sweat and grit of a club date, typically featuring frontwoman Arrow de Wilde covered in blood and writhing across the stage in a bejeweled jockstrap and guitarist Henri Cash throwing his guitar and jumping into the crowd to perform.

 

The band took this intensity into the studio and the end result is their incredibly dynamic sophomore record, Devour You, released today via Rough Trade. Produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, L7), the LP takes the feral power 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 album features a selection of songs radiating both raw sensitivity and untamable power, and a record that de Wilde says, “encapsulates all the blood, sweat, bruised knees, and broken fingers of a Starcrawler show.”

 

Starcrawler are fresh off tours with the likes of Beck, Spoon, Cage The Elephant and The Distillers, and on their own headline tour now. With their insane live show, and the fact that its earned them fans like Shirley Manson and Elton John, this is a tour and an album to check out asap.
