Los Angeles-based rockers Starcrawler announce their live Australian debut starting next week supporting friends from the LA underground, The Growlers! Kicking off January 4th 2020, Starcrawler will be joining The Growlers on a twelve-date Summer East Coast tour stopping in most big centres and surf breaks across QLD, NSW and VIC, including a night at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney. Full run of dates below.
On heading Down Under, Starcrawler’s Arrow de Wilde says “I’ve always wanted to come to Australia, and we’ve been dying to play there for so long! I can’t wait to see what the crowds are like, experience the Australian summer and hang out with koalas!!”
The tour follows the release of Starcrawler’s remarkable second album Devour You – a record that dynamically captures the essence and aggression of their gloriously unhinged live shows. Devour You is available digitally and on limited edition black/red marbled vinyl, with a scratch and sniff sleeve via Rough Trade / Remote Control Records.
Starcrawler—vocalist Arrow de Wilde, guitarist/vocalist Henri Cash, bassist Tim Franco, and drummer Austin Smith—is a band possessed by the spirit of its own hometown of Los Angeles, every movement charged with a primal and manic electricity. The band formed in 2015, and since that time have gone from bashing out songs in the garage to earning legendary fans such as Shirley Manson and Elton John, and to supporting the likes of Beck, Foo Fighters, Spoon, The Distillers, MC5 and more. Devour You was produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, L7) and came to life at the famed Sunset Sound.
