Creeper’s recent return gathers pace as they prepare to release their eagerly anticipated second album Sex, Death and The Infinite Void.
The band’s second single, from their upcoming sophomore album due for release on Friday 22 May 2020, was premiered on the BBC Radio One Rock Show last night (Sunday 19 January 2020).
The new track, Annabelle, is a richly crafted rush of black-hearted rock ‘n’ roll topped by the band’s patented, sky-scraping hooks. After Born Cold opened the band’s new narrative, introducing lead character Roe in the song’s accompanying video. The second track introduces us to Annabelle, the story’s female protagonist. Annabelle is due to marry the richest man in town, but this song finds her meeting Roe for the first time in Lulu’s Tavern, a seedy bar in the fictional town of Calvary Falls.
“‘Annabelle, was written in response to our experience with the Westboro Baptist Church whilst we were touring America,” explains front man Will Gould. “We’ve always proudly represented the so-called sinners, the weirdos, the outsiders and those who don’t feel like they fit in anywhere in this world. For many of our fans, our band is the one space they feel they CAN fit in. So we wrote them a satanic underworld anthem, a song to sing together in defiance. As the song says, ‘You’ve got to live a little when their world just wants you sad.’”
Sex, Death and The Infinite Void is available to pre-order now: with a variety of CDs, vinyl and various merch bundles.
