Highly acclaimed in the UK, Crows have today made a triumphant return with their new single, ‘Bored’. Alongside the single, the band have revealed that their highly-anticipated new album, Reason Enough, is set to be released on September 27th, through Bad Vibrations. Accompanying the announcement, the band have announced that they will be touring across the UK and Europe this October and November. 

Of the new track, vocalist James Cox states:

Like so many musicians today, being off album cycle means no touring, which in turn means looking for more day-to-day work options to make ends meet. We wrote ‘Reason Enough’ in a period like this when we were all simultaneously working day jobs to pay the bills. And when we’re not touring, I become way more aware of, and susceptible to, the news cycle.

He continues, ‘Being bombarded by constant doom and gloom can create a real despondent maelstrom. With what seemed like no hope for respite, or any change to my routine whatsoever, the song ‘Bored’ came out of that cycle of waking up and not being able to shake the feeling of wanting to bang your forehead against a brick wall.”

The single is released along with its music video, directed by Manoela Chiabai (known for her work with Tove Lo, SG Lewis, FLO, Depeche Mode, IDLES, Future Islands), which pays homage to Jim Jarmusch’s film Paterson, B movies in the style of John Carpenter, and references to Camberwell and Freud’s The Uncanny.
