To kick off the album announcement, Starcrawler share the heavy, swinging and brutally catchy “Bet My Brains” alongside its manic and murderous music video. “That song came from thinking about the tunnel people in New York and Vegas and the Catacombs in France, and the underground village of people who live in the sewers of the L.A. River,” says de Wilde. “I was fascinated with the fact that there is a whole other world happening right under our feet.” Guitarist and vocalist Henri Cash adds: “Arrow and I hadn't even talked about it yet, but I'd already written something about the same thing—about how these people's eyes adapt to pitch-blackness, and they end up going crazy from never seeing the sunlight.” Check out the song and the Jellyclaw-directed video below!
