CRUSADES DEBUT EP 'GOLDEN THROATS' RELEASED THROUGH OVERLOOK RECORDS.
"9/10" - Rock Sound Magazine.
"With their five-track Golden Throats EP, post-hardcore quartet Crusades pull so far head of the competition it's almost embarrassing. This is precision-tooled musicianship, where every flick of a drumstick or flex of a foot on the kick-pedal locks into the individual notes of a rapid guitar riff; where the angst of a generation is trapped inside the sound of a bristling, angry vocal. Listen to the high-speed riff-rally towards the end of Hipster Surgery or the circular Escher-steps shapes of I Heard They Cured Cancer, and you'll hear music that sets the adrenaline flowing and yet is held together with vice-like tension." - Herald Scotland
