On the 1st of November 2018, just one day after all hallows eve, Creeper ignited heated speculation on a global level. Why you might ask? Because at their biggest headline show thus far, the band paraphrased their collective idol David Bowie and announced their immediate disbandment. However, after over two years of debate Creeper have confirmed their sophomore record Sex, Death & The Infinite Void.
Due to be released May 22nd via Roadrunner Records, Sex, Death & The Infinite Void is the follow up to Creeper’s 2017 debut full length Eternity, In Your Arms and the trio of EP’s that came prior to it. The confirmation of the record comes after the release of their latest track ‘Born Cold’. On the subject of the record and it’s artwork, frontman Will Gould says;
“The real-life time travel that music can achieve is almost supernatural. In a moment you can be transported from a bedroom in the south of England to another dimension entirely. With our latest album, we attempted to perform a similar magic.”
“The concept behind the artwork came to me when I was considering the ways I first discovered music. Both Ian Miles and I have similar stories of discovering our parents’ records. Holding in our hands these battered relics of the past, playing them for the first time and experiencing the magic of them coming to life over the speaker."
“This being the case, our album cover attempts to live up to that promise. It would fit in with our parents’ records of the past, you could find it in a dusty attic, blow off the cobwebs, play it at any moment in time and be transported.”
The announcement coincides the confirmation of Creeper’s ‘God Can’t Save Us Tour', which features massive support from Holding Absence and Wargasm, A far more intimate run of dates than their last headline tour, tickets are abound to be in limited supply and high demand. Luckily, there is a way to get tickets before general sale - those who pre-order the record before 9am January 15th will gain access to limited pre-sale. Creeper will also be supporting Babymetal next month on the UK leg of Japanese band’s global tour.
