US Tour Fall Dates Announced Kicking Off September 16th in LA
Starcrawler has shared “Broken Angels,” the latest track from their forthcoming hard-hitting and irresistible major label debut album She Said, out September 16th on Big Machine. Listen to “Broken Angels” HERE and watch the lyric video HERE.
Celebrating the release of She Said, Starcrawler will also embark on an extensive fall headline tour for their epic live shows and long-awaited return to the concert stage. The not-to-be-missed shows kick off in their own backyard at LA’s famed Troubadour on September 16th, followed by a swing to the east coast for a special album release show at NYC’s Baby’s All Right on September 20th. See below for complete tour itinerary.
The LA collective that is Starcrawler consists of striking frontwoman Arrow de Wilde, guitarist Henri Cash and brother Bill Cash on pedal steel/guitar, drummer Seth Carolina, and bassist Tim Franco. On their new album She Said, Starcrawler have fully leaned into their own epic vision of a contemporary Hollywood Babylon and morphed into a modern-day take on LA legends X, with a sprinkle of The Go-Go’s, a smattering of The Distillers, and some Rolling Stones sleaze thrown in for good measure. The adrenaline-fueled record was produced by industry titan Tyler Bates, who met the band when they worked together on “Goodtime Girl,” a stand-alone single for DC’s Dark Nights: Death Metal soundtrack.
“Broken Angels” is a perfect end-of-summer anthem and showcases Starcrawler’s knack for packing a powerful sonic punch. Laced with soulful guitar and rhythmic drums “Broken Angels” also shines with playful piano and Arrow’s vulnerable vocals. The lyric video captures their vibrant and colorful aesthetic and nods to early 90’s female rock/throwback vibes.
Henri explains “we got together and worked on it for two days. Tim played piano and him, me and my brother made this new demo of it. It was stressful, but we got there in the end, and it was the best feeling. 100 percent it’s the song we worked hardest on for the record. We worked so hard on the demo that we ended up using a lot of tracks from that on the final song. We all went to Arrow’s and sat on the couch and wrote the lyrics for that one together.” Arrow also gives insight into the song’s sound and how it came to life and comments, “This one was Tim’s jam. He came with the bones for it. The demo sounded like that Sixties girl group Ace of Cups. It was a lot slower, it was cool but it didn’t quite sound like Starcrawler.”
The previous release “Stranded” was described by Mxdwn as “a perfect example of the vivacious raw energy and infectious hooks that the band is known for.” Watch the music video HERE. Riff Magazine noted the single “She Said” is a “head-bopper… taking on vibes from 2000s punk and indie rock.” Watch the video HERE. Starcrawler’s first single “Roadkill” was hailed as “Defiant” by NME, is currently charting at Alternative Radio and has amassed over one million streams and counting. The music video features a surprise cameo from Steve-O of Jackass fame watch it HERE.
Starcrawler has spent the majority of 2022 globetrotting opening for My Chemical Romance, Porno for Pyros, Jack White, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds at All Points East along with The Smile, Japanese Breakfast, Robert Glasper, and more.
