Ferocious London force Crows have been building a fortress. Through near-relentless touring and their chaotic statement of intent, debut EP ‘Unwelcome Light’, they’ve amassed a following that’s as impassioned as it is insane. Now, they’re back, scratching ‘The Itch’ with the first taster of the ‘Cold Comfort’ EP.

‘Cold Comfort’ is set for release via Telharmonium Records on November 18th, with pre-orders available here. Crows’ biggest headline run to date kicks off this weekend, with a suitably - dates for that are below the player.
