Since day one, Creeper have been building something big. A non-stop, brick-by-brick creation, the tower in which their self-proclaimed cult reside is the deserving result of hard graft and a near-constant touring schedule. And then they vanished.
Their return is nothing short of dazzling. Taking all the tension built up by those months in the ether and letting it loose in a two-minute emotional explosion, ‘Suzanne’ takes every facet of Creeper’s delicately constructed world and polishes it to a blinding shine. Flamboyant yet furious, their sky-high ambitions are threaded into every searing note.
“We’ll die holding hands”, that mantra that echoed around the hole they left in late August, becomes both a crowd-baiting hook and a rallying cry, ready to be etched onto the skin of thousands. Gloomy, gothic romanticism at its finest, it’s everything Creeper exude in a nutshell.
Creeper’s debut album ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ is released March 24th via Roadrunner.
