Just this past Friday, the four-piece British rock band from Liverpool, Crawlers, announced their debut album The Mess We Seem To Make with a coinciding music video release for their latest track "Would You Come To My Funeral." The teaser track to the album has gained widespread recognition and accolades, including being launched as Radio 1's Hottest Record. The music video is directed by Callum Loyd-James who has done work in the past for artists such as The Wombats and Pale Waves. The album is set to hit all streaming platforms on February 16th featuring 12 tracks and including a Deluxe CD, white vinyl, blue splatter vinyl, and a silver glitter cassette. View the new music video below.

Crawlers was formed in 2018 by school friends Amy Woodall, Liv Kettle, and Holly Minto who met at the Liverpool School of Performing Arts. Soon after, drummer, Harry Breen, was introduced to the band, and it wasn't long until the group began to perform at small venues across their homeland in Merseyside. The band expanded through social media, with trending songs on TikTok including "Come Over Again" which charted in the Top 100 on the UK Singles Chart. Reaching a viral status online brought attention to Crawlers within the industry and led to the ensemble being signed with Polydor Records by early 2022. That very same year, Crawlers embarked on two sold-out headlining UK tours, during which they played their largest show to date at the renowned venue O2 Academy Liverpool and sold out a show at London's Heaven. The band reached countless milestones in 2022, including playing numerous UK festivals as well as opening for the legendary band, My Chemical Romance. To date, Crawlers have released 2 EPS, 6 singles, and have signed a new record deal with Interscope Records who will be releasing their debut album, The Mess We Seem To Make, in February.

The Mess We Seem To Make delves into the complicated emotions a young person confronts throughout their life, honing in on topics such as trauma, sexual politics, and mental health. Across the record, feelings of loneliness, insecurity, and toxic forms of dependence are held up to the light and scrutinized in a way that translates into relatable, emotional lyrics meshed with upbeat guitar riffs and fast-paced drum beats. Crawlers' new music builds upon the authentic stylistic approach established in their most recent mixtape Loud Without Noise. The debut album was recorded at Liverpool's Coastal Studios with assistance from producer Pete Robertson from The Vaccines and Grammy-nominee engineer Tom Roach who have worked with the group on previous releases. The 12-track debut doesn't stick to one sonic direction thus reestablishes the eclectic alt-rock sound Crawlers have become famed for and further cements their status as the UK's next big crossover alternative act.

When describing the new album to critics, singer Holly Minto elaborates, "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.” - Holly Minto, singer of Crawlers
