After making their grand return late last year with a comeback show under the moniker of Fugitives of Heaven, Creeper are officially back! And they’ve got details of a new album for us…
Their rather dramatically-titled second album ‘Sex, Death & The Infinite Void’ (available to pre-order here) will follow on from 2018’s ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ and is due for release on 22nd May through Roadrunner Records. It’ll feature their most recent single ‘Born Cold’.
Speaking of the album, and its artwork specifically, frontman Will Gould has said: “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.”
That’s not all: the band have also revealed details of their first UK headline tour in two years. Taking place in April, it’ll follow on from their stint supporting Babymetal next month.
