CROOKS UK PREMIERES DEBUT FULL-LENGTH ‘ARE WE ALL THE SAME DISTANCE APART’ VIA ‘KERRANG!’
Crooks UK, hailing from Cheltenham, UK, is now premiering their new, highly-anticipated full length, Are We All the Same Distance Apart, via Kerrang! The album will be released digitally tomorrow, October 30 through Equal Vision Records. A physical release will follow soon after, with an expected retail release date of November 27.
The band is currently out on a European tour with Our Last Night and has also just announced a UK run for early next year, supporting Coheed and Cambria and Glassjaw. To date, Crooks UK has toured and shared stages with the likes of Mallory Knox, Hands Like Houses, Transit, Gallows, Your Demise, Marmozets and Basement. All upcoming tour dates can be seen below.
Crooks UK also recently premiered videos for “Schöne Seele”, “A Few Peaceful Days”, and “May Be”, all of which can be seen now at youtube.com/equalvision.
Pre-orders for Are We All the Same Distance Apart are available now at MerchNow/Impericon and via iTunes, and include instant MP3 downloads of “Schöne Seele”, “A Few Peaceful Days”, “May Be” and “Above Me”.
The album was produced by Dan Lancaster (Bring Me The Horizon, 5 Seconds of Summer), with Nick Scholey and James Bragg; And mixed and mastered by Lancaster, as well.
Rogers’ transfixing vocal range stands out among the chaotic instrumental fervor on the album, effortlessly gliding from a rich, raspy tone to a truly stunning and delicate falsetto, and is framed perfectly by a welcome balance of exceptionally intricate drumming and lush, airy guitarwork.
Crooks UK is comprised of Josh Rogers (vocals), Alex Pay (guitar, vocals), Jacob Dutton-Keen (bass), Oli Bendall (guitar), and Jack Batchelor (drums).
