It’s been a magnificent few months for CREEPER. After their debut album ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ crashed into the Top 20, the Southampton sextet sold-out their biggest headline tour to date and made their triumphant main stage debut at Download. Kerrang! heralded their set as “An absolute triumph… It’s an astonishing display and no band deserves this victory more.”
Now CREEPER can share a video for the new single version of their pivotal album track ‘Misery’ which collates footage from several recent shows. From intimate club gigs to the gargantuan Download main stage, it’s a video that’s sure to evoke spine-tingling memories from the legions of devoted fans who have followed their journey so far.
This summer will see CREEPER play all 41 dates of this summer’s North American leg of the Vans Warped Tour, which they’ll follow by playing their debut Canadian tour in November with Silverstein. They’ll then return to the UK in December to embark upon their own ‘Theatre of Fear’ headline tour.
Featuring an ambitious new stage production which will elevate the band’s renowned theatrical presentation to a whole new level, the ‘Theatre of Fear’ tour includes their biggest London show to date at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire and concludes with a homecoming show at Southampton’s Guildhall.
A statement from the band reads, “This Winter, we invite you to the Creeper ‘Theatre Of Fear’ tour, a one of a kind production being brought to 6 theatres across the country. Not only will they be our biggest ever headline shows, they will also be the most significant in the scale of ideas surrounding them. After a year travelling the world, we are excited to bring home our most ambitious project to date. Two years after James Scythe’s disappearance, this December we invite you to shake hands with the stranger of tomorrow.”
The dates are:
THE ‘THEATRE OF FEAR’ TOUR
3rd – Glasgow ABC
4th – Birmingham Institute
5th – Bristol Trinity
7th – London Shepherds Bush Empire
9th – Manchester Albert Hall
10th – Southampton Guildhall
‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ finds the sextet pushing hard against the boundaries of the art a ‘punk’ band can be expected to produce in 2017. The album is the third installment in a trilogy of records (after the highly acclaimed EPs ‘The Callous Heart’ and ‘The Stranger’) loosely based around J.M Barrie’s Peter Pan. ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ sees the band wrestling with existential crises, personal failures and emotional desolation via the kaleidoscope of a richly drawn narrative tapestry.
CREEPER are fulfilling the potential which saw them earn Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards, Best New Band at the Metal Hammer Golden God Awards, and Best British Newcomer in Rock Sound Readers’ Poll.
