Crows formed in 2015 and have since built a considerable following for the intensity of their live shows which have seen the band members break bones as well as instruments. Their debut album, Silver Tongues, fell into the hands of Joe Talbot [IDLES] who subsequently released the album in 2019, with his label, Balley Records.

 ‘Silver Tongues’ was recorded in near total darkness, akin to the theme of the album, and cemented Crows as one of the most exciting  Punk bands to come out of the UK.

Crows went onto record their follow up record, ‘Beware Believers’, almost immediately after the release of their debut album to build on the excitement but the album sat, frustratingly, unreleased for 2 years due to Covid.

‘Beware Believers’ was finally released in April of this year to overwhelming reviews, and described as “a release that shines it’s brightest when it’s at it’s darkest”. 

After being one of the most talked about bands at SXSW earlier this year, Crows head out on their first ever headline tour in America, followed up by supporting long time friends, Wolf Alice.

Convert, is a Milwaukee five-piece featuring former and current members of Burning Sons, Get Rad, Assault & Battery and Cry Coyote.

While most of the aforementioned acts fit more squarely into a single descriptor, Convert blurs the lines of a variety of styles, combining elements of post punk, goth rock and electronic music into something that not only sounds fresh, but also incredibly current. Singer Dillon Hallen, bassist Richie Murry, guitarist Sam Sharkey and drummer Ben Davison have spent time playing in a variety of different punk-adjacent acts over the last decade plus, but with the project that would eventually become Convert, its members wanted to venture into territory that they had yet to explore.
