Crows announce UK tour, share symbolic video for ‘Chain of Being’

The London post-punks’ debut LP is out next month.

Following the announcement of their forthcoming debut LP ‘Silver Tongues’ - set for release on 22nd March via Joe Talbot of IDLES’ label, Balley Records - Crows have now announced plans for a UK tour in support of the record.

Kicking off in Ireland at the end of April, it will see the London post-punks take in seven dates around the country including a hometown show at The Dome in Tufnell Park.

The band have also shared the video for single ‘Chain of Being’ - a dark, symbolic affair shot in monochrome and featuring warped distorted imagery.

Of the track, singer James Cox says: “I’ve a strong emotional link with this song. It is talking about the similarly strong emotional link people have with religion and how many use it as a crutch to not deal with their problems or feelings and instead blindly leaving everything up to a higher power. I understand of course that religion for some people is a source of peace but what I dislike is how religion can in turn also prey on their vulnerabilities.”

Watch the video below and catch Crows at one of the following dates.

APRIL
26 Limerick, Kasbah Social Club
27 Dublin, The Sound House
29 Glasgow, Blue Arrow
30 Leeds, Oporto
