London's Crows have signed to Balley Records, run by IDLES' Joe Talbot. To coincide with the signing they've also brought news of their long-awaited debut album, and the lead single "Chain of Being".

Joining BRIT nominees IDLES, and LICE, Crows are the latest addition to Joe Talbot's Balley Records. To celebrate their new move, Crows have revealed new single "Chain Of Being".

On signing them to Balley Records, Talbot explains, "I saw them play at the Louisiana in Bristol a few years ago and both the performance and the quality of their songs blew me away. Everything about them excites me; so when I heard they were looking to release an album, I had no choice but to chase them. It's a dream to work with them."

"Chain Of Being" is the lead single from Crows' debut album Silver Tongues. It's also their first single since their last two EPs in 2016, Cold Comfort and Unwelcome Light.
