Crumb Announce Tour, Share New Song “Crushxd”: Listen

Crumb have shared their first new song since the release of their 2021 album, Ice Melt. “Crushxd” was co-produced by the Brooklyn band with Jonathan Rado and Johnscott Sanford. Hear it below, and check out the band’s upcoming tour dates, too.

“In 2018, we went on our first big US tour. We were beginning to write the instrumental to a new song and started playing it live every night. It didn’t have any words yet, just a nice techno groove,” the band noted in a statement. “On our way to one of those shows, a little turtle appeared out of nowhere and crossed in front of our car—it was crushed instantly. After that experience, Lila wrote the words to the song. The song is a celebration of the turtle’s life, honoring its long and beautiful journey on the road up until its tragic death. LONG LIVE TURTLE.”
