Crocodiles announce new album

By | Published on Thursday 7 July 2016


Crocodiles have announced that they will release their sixth album, ‘Dreamless’, on 21 Oct through their own Zoo Music label.

“We’ve always been a guitar band and I think we just wanted to challenge ourselves and our aesthetic”, says the band’s Brandon Welchez of the direction the new record has taken. “It didn’t start as a conscious decision but within the first week Charlie’s mantra became ‘fuck guitars’. Only one song has zero guitar but in general we tried to find alternatives to fill that space”.

Of the album’s title, he adds: “I suffered insomnia throughout the whole session. I was literally dreamless. The past two years had been fraught with difficulty for us – relationship troubles, career woes, financial catastrophe, health issues. In that pessimistic mindset it was easy to feel as if the dream was over”.
