THE CRAWLING - To Release A Mini Documentary "A Reason To Crawl"

Northern Ireland based melancholic doom/death metal trio The Crawling are far from being dormant in this uncertain times. As we are all very aware, due to the covid-19 pandemic, the live music scene as we knew it has ended. Of course this is a temporary situation, but truth be told, no one truly knows how this will move forward; we just need to take it one step at a time. The Crawling have responded by continuing to create -  focusing on play through videos, live facebook events and social media. Amidst this, Andy (vocals/guitar), has taken time to reflect upon playing live, providing a narrative to accompany vlog footage from the bands last UK tour, aptly entitled "A Reason To Crawl".

Vocalist/guitarist Andy Clarke commented: "As a band, we (The Crawling) have found ourselves confined to a digital platform until restrictions are eased, and we can at least meet for rehearsal, never mind play a show. I was growing increasingly frustrated by the lack of gigs, and i needed to do something, so i just took the time to reflect upon some of the shows from last year. It's not a substitute, but it's a reminder of what we had, what we do, who we are, why we do it, and what we have to look forward to."

Formed in the winter of 2014 against the bleak concrete backdrop of Lisburn city, Northern Ireland; The Crawling use a guttural vocal to combine melancholy with weight, churning out a heavy, doom/death ensemble. The band released their latest full-length, Wolves And The Hideous White, in 2018 via Grindscene Records. Recently the band released a series of playthrough videos which can be seen over HERE. The mini documentary "A Reason To Crawl" will be for the first time aired tomorrow (19th June) at 21:00 (BMT) at this location. Link
