LA’s Starcrawler are back for their sophomore release. Devour You will see the light of day on 10/11 via the fine folks at Rough Trade Records. The first single, Bet My Brains, was consistent with their debut. On the latest, No More Pennies, it kicks off an early 70s Stones vibe. Arguably my favorite track I’ve heard from them.

While much of the forthcoming Devour You dynamically captures the aggression of Starcrawler’s gloriously unhinged live shows, today’s sneak peek, “No More Pennies,” acts as the record’s country-tinged centerpiece, showcasing a more nuanced, and more grown up Starcrawler for the first time. The video was directed by singer Arrow de Wilde and Jonathan King. “We started with an archive of 16mm film that Gilbert Trejo shot with us on tour and at home over the last year,” de Wilde says, “I was editing it together with Jonathan and we were both drawn to a lot of the shots of us around Los Angeles. So we jumped in a car, and shot the video performances around town trying to capture the feeling we get when we’re all together back in the city. We had our friends with us – Gilbert, Annie Hardy (Giant Drag), Mary James, my uncle Jimmy and Jonathan’s chihuahua Earth Angel.
