STARCRAWLER announce new album

STARCRAWLER announce new debut self-titled album

STARCRAWLER are a Los Angeles rock band who formed in 2015 when 18-year-old lead vocalist Arrow de Wilde first met guitarist Henri Cash at their Echo Park high school. Shortly thereafter they were joined by the rhythm section of Austin Smith (drums) and Tim Franco (bass). The foursome play with squalling riffs and thundering beats, and their incendiary live shows, fronted by de Wilde’s otherworldly magnetism.

The band has announced details for their upcoming self-titled debut album, which will be released on January 19th, 2018 via Rough Trade. Recorded by Ryan Adams on analog tape at his Pax-Am studio, the 10 songs on the album prove that yes, they ARE making rock and roll exciting again! Ryan has been tweeting up a storm about them saying things like “This starcrawler record is gonna peel the paint off your brain!”

The first single from the album is called “I Love LA” and the video, directed by famed music photographer Autumn de Wilde (AKA Arrow’s mom) is a fun and feisty homage to the city of dreamers. Opening in a donut shop/Chinese food restaurant, the video follows Starcrawler as they drudge through the monotony of their day jobs. Once they break into song, the band is transported to Hollywood Boulevard and transformed into the captivating, glam rockers anyone who has seen a Starcrawler show knows them to be. They also recently played LA’s CalJam Festival, which is curated by Dave Grohl (Starcrawler was the first band he reached out to, and he raved about them the next day on KROQ.) Gerard Way is also a fan, describing them as a “mix of 70’s theatricality and Stooges electricity.”
