Biography

Mystery is a promotional tool that always works and few understand this better than Southampton-based punk rockers Creeper. Founded in 2014, their self-titled EP dropped that same year, followed by two more EPs in 2015 and 2016 respectively. Following the release of their full-length debut on Roadrunner in 2017 with ‘Eternity in Your Arms’ they stormed every stage in sight for the next twelve months. Fans of AFI and My Chemical Romance ate it up but were aghast to learn that Creeper would be calling it quits at the end of the tour. As a gimmick their timing is spot-on, illustrating that David Bowie is an inspiration in more ways than one (Bowie made a similar announcement when he decided to retire his Ziggy Stardust character). Meanwhile they’ve been hard at work writing the next chapter, which will give birth to an entirely new incarnation under the moniker ‘Fugitives of Heaven’. A new album is in the works which will undoubtedly feature prominently in their set list at GMM2020. (#GMM20)
