Following March’s wonderful That Time Of Year Always, Crawlers have shared their second new single of the year.

Entitled Messiah, the one is about how it feels to “exploit one’s sadness for the sake of creating art”, according to vocalist Holly Minto.

Immediately after the release of Messiah, Crawlers will headline London’s Omeara on June 8, before supporting YUNGBLUD at the Eden Project on June 10, and also appearing at Download Festival and Glastonbury this month.

Last year, Crawlers shared their debut mixtape Loud Without Noise, with plans for a proper debut album on the way at some point.

Speaking to Kerrang! about that collection, bassist Liv Kettle explained that, “It’s like the pit-stop before the album.”

“When we eventually do our debut album, it’s going to have a concept,” continued Holly. “But with this mixtape, we have so much music that’s so different from each other – it’s all about the same thing, but musically we were still developing. I think right now we’ve got a bit more of a direction with our sound, and we just want to share with our fans this music that we’ve made that’s so different. There’s Prodigy-esque songs, Phoebe Bridgers songs, post-punk songs, all in one thing. We can’t call it an EP – it’s a mixtape, like you burn for your car with all your favourite random songs.”
