Creeper have always been ones for overblown majesty, so it’s a wonder they hadn’t done this before. No bother, we now finally have it - a Creeper cover of ‘Fairytale Of New York’.
Yep, Will and Hannah have done their best at becoming Shane’n’Kirsty for the new cover, pretty faithful to the original (if it ain’t broke etc). They’re also set to release a new Christmas EP next week (8th December), featuring ‘Fairytale Of New York’, another cover, this time of ‘Blue Christmas’, and even a festive single of their own(!).
Creeper begin their biggest UK tour to date this weekend, dubbed the Theatre Of Fear.
The shows begin in Glasgow (3rd December), ending a week later with a massive hometown show at the Guildhall in Southampton.

03 Glasgow, ABC
04 Birmingham, Institute
