Crawlers have confirmed that they are going to be kicking off 2024 with the release of their long-awaited debut album, The Mess We Seem To Make. It’s been an incredible build-up to this point for the band. Their 2023 has seen them share a plethora of huge singles that showcase the array of sounds the band deal in. There’s the melancholic “That Time Of Year Always” and the triumphant “Messiah”. Most recently there was the mournfully thoughtful “Would You Come To My Funeral”. Now we know it was all leading up to this, a big moment in a journey that has taken the band around the world and back. From US tours to hanging with YUNGBLUD, we are still at the very beginning of their story. Though, with this debut album, they are about to write even more of it.

The Mess We Seem To Make will be released February 16, 2024. The artwork for the record feels like a perfect representation of the band. Shot at the coast, it shows off the band standing and throwing their limbs into the air. There’s a freedom to the image, although it may just be an expulsion of energy and frustration. It feels like a shot that embodies the band’s music. Chaotic, personal and intimate, all made with the intent of exorcising demons and expelling bad vibes.

The album will feature 12 tracks in total, including the aforementioned “Would You Come To My Funeral”. A heartbroken anthem about whether the person you care about the most would come to see you in your final moments, it’s a fitting introduction to what direction the record may be heading. It also now has its own music video, featuring the band acting as pallbearers. You can check them out below.

But first vocalist Holly Minto had this to say about what the album means to them:

“This album 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.”
