Dinked 168 is the second album from London post-punk 4-piece Crows. Immediately after the release of their excellent 2019 debut, Crows headed straight back to the studio to record its follow up, hoping to build on the momentum of touring their truly visceral live show. However, midway through recording, lockdown put the brakes on proceedings and forced a 3-month break from the studio; in this time, the band honed their songwriting and tightened their sound. The result is massive, veering between white-knuckle noise rock and fuzzed-out gothic post punk, all tied together by abrasive production and the Ian Curtis-esque vocals of frontman James Cox. Altogether darker, heavier and more mature than their debut, Beware Believers is the sound of Crows coming into their own. Beware Believers is released on April 1st by Bad Vibrations.
The Dinked Edition of Beware Believers is on 500 limited and hand numbered 180g black and white swirl LP with an exclusive A5 lyric book, A2 print, printed inner sleeve and sticker set.
