FROM THE NEW EP ‘AMERICAN NOIR’, OUT ON JULY 30TH

As CREEPER prepare to make an emotional reunion with their fan community when they headline the second stage at Download Pilot this Saturday, the band today share the new video for their current single ‘Midnight’. Continuing CREEPER’s unique ability to subvert rock tropes while maintaining a theatrical zeal, the song received widespread fan adoration plus coverage from DIYDorkKerrang!LouderNME and The Line of Best Fit.

CREEPER SET TO HEADLINE THE SECOND STAGE AT DOWNLOAD PILOT THIS SATURDAY

The ‘Midnight’ video brings the curtain down on the narrative established in their Top 5 album ‘Sex, Death and The Infinite Void’ and commences a new chapter in which Annabelle battles her grief following the loss of Roe. Directed by the band’s regular collaborator Olli Appleyard, the video captures CREEPER’s distinctive doomed elegance aesthetic. It cuts rapidly between their full-throttle performance, a glimpse at Roe’s passing, and frontman Will Gould’s iconic prayer while draped in the Stars and Stripes.

Will Gould commented, “The video for ‘Midnight’ welcomes our audience back into the world of Calvary Falls one final time to bear witness to the death of Roe. Olli Appleyard has created a visual as lavish and tragic as the music itself, we are so excited to share it with the world.”

‘American Noir’ is a requiem to the album’s central character Roe, which explores his partner Annabelle’s grief and desolation following his death. 

‘Midnight’ provides an enticing introduction to ‘American Noir’, which presents a requiem to Roe. Elsewhere, Hannah Greenwood’s vocals also take centre-stage on the mournful gothic romance of ‘Ghosts Over Calvary’ and the funeral march elegy of the closing ballad ‘Damned and Doomed’‘America At Night’ reprises Gould’s lyrical gift for crafting poetic pop culture references and amplifies the drama with stirring strings and a searing solo, traits which resonate even more theatrically within ‘One Of Us’. It also features three interludes: the tone-setting ‘Midnight Militia’‘The Drowning Room’, and the John Carpenter-esque ‘Frozen Night’.

The EP continues CREEPER’s creative collaboration with Xandy Barry, who also produced ‘…Infinite Void’.

‘American Noir’ is now available to pre-order here, and will be released on digital and physical formats. The standard vinyl is a single-sided screen-printed vinyl (replicating the style of their debut self-titled EP), which features the lightning bolt from the ‘Sex, Death and the Infinite Void’ cover. There are two limited edition vinyl variants which are available exclusively from CREEPER’s official store, one featuring Roe and the other featuring Annabelle. The store also offers two limited edition cassettes, each with alternate artwork. A standard CD is also available.

When CREEPER headline the second stage at Download Pilot at 8:15pm this Saturday, it will be their first live show in 16 months and their first since the release of ‘…Infinite Void’. But there will soon be the chance to catch them again, first with the Reading and Leeds Festivals in August, and then with their biggest headline tour to date in December.
