CRAWLERS Release a New Single “Fuck Me (I Didn’t Know How To Say) and head off on a North American Tour.

Liverpool-based four-piece CRAWLERS share their intense new single “Fuck Me (I Didn’t Know How To Say)” out today on Interscope Records.  The single is a compelling concoction of big, grungy riffs and sees lead singer Holly Minto pivoting the lens inwards as she examines her relationship with her own body. “I know I used to be in love,” she whispers on the song. “The kisses that led to sex were close enough.” It’s yet another example of the bold, probing songwriting that makes CRAWLERS such an important new band and a powerful force to be reckoned with.

Holly elaborates, “Fuck Me (I Didn’t Know How To Say)”’ is a song very personal to us as a band. The song covers two ideas behind sex. First the trauma and disgust after sexual assault, and then the idea of how at the time of writing it I haven’t felt loved and only used for my body and for sex rather than the love I really wanted at the time.”

“There’s a song that goes ‘You kiss me just to kiss me’ and I was like, ‘Damn, I’ve never been kissed just to be kissed’,” she explains. “I just sat there and had a little moment about it and was like, ‘Have I just been letting people use me so I can feel loved?’” 

Since their inception, CRAWLERS have been putting the work in, gigging across Merseyside, working on their songwriting and steadily building an impressive following on social media. Their debut EP - released through Modern Sky/Lab Records in October – has now clocked up over 40 million combined streams and landed the band their first hit with ‘Come Over (Again)’, which crashed into the Official UK Singles Chart thanks to fan power alone. To date it has racked up over 28 million streams on Spotify, 1.5 million views on YouTube and was a Radio 1 Tune of the Week.
