Creeper are a band formed on July 14th 2014 in their hometown of Southampton, consisting of former members of Our Time Down Here and Hang The Bastard. The quintet had their first sold out show in their hometown at the prestigious The Joiners venue before making their London debut at The Old Blue Last and then hitting the road for a full tour with Welsh post-hardcore giants Funeral For A Friend as well as the release of excellent debut EP “Creeper”.
Early summer 2015 saw the band perform an impressive slot at Camden Rocks festival before signing to Roadrunner Records, home to artists including Alterbridge, Black Stone Cherry, Corey Taylor, Lamb Of God, Murderdolls, Rob Zombie, We Are Harlot, Slipknot and Slash.
A slot at Download festival 2015 was next up for the quintet, closely followed by a close to perfect set at 2000 Trees.
The band also announced the name and release date of debut EP on Roadrunner Records “The Callous Hearts” out on September 18th with pre-orders available now at http://www.creepercult.com/ and on iTunes.
An EP release show was also announced to be held at The Old Blue Last for the 15th September, which sold out within 24 hours!
On 11th July 2015, Nikki Sixx tweeted about Creeper on his “support new music” saying: “Check these guys out. Reminds a little of AFI and that’s a great thing. CREEPER”.
The band don’t stop there! 2015 is still packed with a show in Cardiff and dates in August alongside the Misfits, an appearance at Hevyfest, a UK tour with Moose Blood and an appearance on the UK Warped Tour!
This is just the beginning of a quick rise to stardom from the gothic punk quintet!
