5 Minutes With Crawlers

Liverpudlian newcomers Crawlers are one of the most exciting acts on the live circuit right now! With hugely celebrated singles and a phenomenal on-stage presence, it is no surprise that they debut headline tour has already sold out and fans have added them to their 'must-see' lists at festivals this summer!

We caught up with the trio to discuss all things tour, their career so far and what they have in-store next!

Your headline tour kicks off later this month with a couple of sold out hometown shows at Arts Club – how does it feel to once again be preparing for life on the road?

It's been crazy! As everyone knows we have been non-stop from choosing labels, planning campaigns and writing our next material, but man does it feel good to get back into our practice room again and do what we do best and what started all of this. Arts Club is a very special moment for us because we have been looking up to artists who have played this venue for years, it really feels like a full circle moment.

The rest of the tour has sold out – it must be pretty cool to achieve this with only a handful of singles released?

Craziness again! We thought having our first tour would already be an amazing dream for our livelihoods, let alone selling it out and upgrading it three times! We started with our close friends and family and sometimes just two people in the crowd, traveling and taking any gig we could, so to now be capable of this is insanity.

Do you feel like there is less pressure on a band like yourselves when you’re not touring in support of a brand new album – for example does it give you the opportunity to experiment a lot more and find what works on the live stage?

Yes I feel like people are here for us and the music we have, and also just for a good time and a safe space - which is all we can hope to provide.

What can we expect from your live performance? Do you have a set routine or anything in particular you like to do before or after your set?

We try and very much be ourselves on stage, have fun and jokes but also talk about the real issues some of our songs face.

You also have some festival performances lined up at the likes of Neighbourhood Weekender and Neck Of The Woods – do you prepare for these kind of shows differently or is it ‘business as usual’?

Honestly, last year we were last minute added to Neighbourhood and it was one of the biggest moments of our careers so far! So to now be on so many festivals is madness - we want to ensure a wide variety of material to connect to new fans but also be our old fashioned selves, because if they don't like that there's no point in sticking along for the ride.

Your sounds have previously been championed by everyone from Clash and Gigwise to BBC Radio 1 – as well as racking up millions of streams. Is this attention something you’re conscious about, or something that you try not to get too invested with?

None of it really hit us all recently! It is incredible and we are grateful for all the support we have had from radio to our listeners on Spotify. We have grown a little conscious of it, mainly from people approaching us on Bold Street haha, but everyone is so kind and we are just more grateful than ever.

What else can we expect from Crawlers across the rest of 2022 and beyond?

More music, more shows, and more Crawlers than you've ever seen before, and we can't wait hehe!

Tickets to see Crawlers have now sold out, but you can join the waiting list here.
