They also currently have over 1.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
The band’s self-titled debut EP – released in October through Modern Sky/Lab Records – features Come Over (Again), which has amassed over 15.5 million streams on Spotify and 1 million views on YouTube.
The CRAWLERS debut UK tour in April has sold out, with the quartet playing to over 100,000 fans in their hometown.
CRAWLERS are Holly Minto (vocals and trumpet), Amy Woodall (lead guitar), Liv Kettle (bass guitar) and Harry Breen (drums).
They formed CRAWLERS while attending university, and are managed by Alfie Skelly and David Pichilingi at Modern Sky.
