As the one-year anniversary of their sophomore album Wolves and the Hideous White draws near, Northern Ireland’s THE CRAWLING is preparing a special cassette release of the album. Says the band,
“The album is approaching one-year-old, we have a hometown show coming up, and wanted to do something special. We don’t do as many Belfast gigs as we used to, so it’s always cool to add something, to make it an ‘event’ of sorts. We’re from the era of cassettes, Walkman and tape trading, so we thought we would release a limited edition cassette version of the album. It’s proper old school, single J card, black tape with on body printing. It looks absolutely brilliant, and it was cool to re-visit the artwork and adjust for the new format. It’s for a limited listening audience of course, but people have already expressed an interest from a collector’s point of view as well. We’re super excited to release it!”
The release show will be at The Limelight in Belfast on Saturday, October 19th with support from Stahlsarg, Strangle Wire, and Nomadus.
