Named as Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards, Best New Band at the Metal Hammer Golden God Awards and Best British Newcomer in Rock Sound readers’ poll, CREEPER have premiered their official music video for “Misery.” “Misery” is taken from CREEPER’s acclaimed debut LP, Eternity, In Your Arms which is available today at www.creepercult.com and is the third and final chapter in a trilogy of music videos taken from the record.
Expansive, ambitious and feverishly-awaited debut album Eternity, In Your Arms finds the Southampton six pushing hard against the boundaries of the art a ‘punk’ band can be expected to produce in 2017. The album is the third installment in a trilogy of records (after the highly acclaimed EPs ‘The Callous Heart’ and ‘The Stranger’) loosely based around J.M Barrie’s Peter Pan. Eternity, In Your Arms sees the band wrestling with existential crises, personal failures and emotional desolation via the kaleidoscope of a richly drawn narrative tapestry.
“With [2015’s] ‘The Callous Heart’ EP we wrote a bunch of heart-broken love songs based around Peter Pan’s The Lost Boys,” explains vocalist Will Gould. “‘The Stranger’ EP was full of more fearful songs about the things that terrify us – linking back to the Tick Tock Croc. With the album there is a combination of both of those things, but the majority of the record is about addressing those concerns – things we’ve been through in our real lives – from a very immediate, present standpoint.”
