Roadrunner Records’ group, CREEPER, have announced details of their anticipated debut album. Eternity, In Your Arms, Creeper’s first full-length record will arrive on March 24th.
Today, CREEPER have launched the album’s first single “Suzanne,” which blendsflamboyant teen scream theatrics with an adrenalized shot of punk ‘n’ roll and the impassioned mantra: “I wanna die holding hands.” The track is streaming now along with its official music video on Creeper’s YouTube Channel. “Suzanne” is available as an instant grat track for all pre-orders, which are available now at creepercult.com with exclusive merch bundles available at http://smarturl.it/creeperstore.
“’Suzanne’, although familiar, is a new landscape to explore, and a perfect introduction to the world of our album,” says CREEPER vocalist WillGould. “We’ve worked to refine our sound, toying with elements of rock ‘n’ roll and blending this together with the 90s punk we grew up on. We hope that this first single will act as a striking message of our intent and ambition.”
Both the album and the single were produced by the band’s regular collaborator Neil Kennedy at TheRanch, and then mixed by NealAvron (TwentyOnePilots).
“’Eternity, In Your Arms’ is a record, this time not only about being young and heartbroken, but about transition, about age and loss,” explains Gould. “Not only the loss of life, but the loss of ourselves. The pieces of the people we were.”
CREEPER sparked a frenzy among fans and media alike when ‘missing’ posters of each band member were posted online following their sets at the Reading and LeedsFestivals. In the weeks that have followed a series of cryptic clues have been posted on social media – all which are linked to the album’s creative ideas – ahead of the exclusive unveiling of “Suzanne” as Radio 1’s ‘Rockest Record’ on the Rock Show.
Since signing to Roadrunner Records in the summer of 2015, CREEPER’s Eps, ‘The Callous Heart’ and ‘The Stranger’ have been met with critical acclaim. In addition to Reading and Leeds, they’ve performed at festivals such as Download, the VansWarpedTourUK, SlamDunk, Bestival, Truck, CamdenRocks, 2000Trees, Y Not and HevyFest. Along the way they’ve played shows with Misfits, Tiger Army, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and MooseBlood.
