Following on from their stunning 2017 debut record ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’, horror punks Creeper have announced that the title of their second album will be ‘Sex, Death & The Infinite Void’ which they describe as a ”new era” for the band.

Dispelling any rumours of a split, the forthcoming record will include their impassioned single ‘Born Cold’. ‘Sex, Death & The Infinite Void’ will be available on CD and purple vinyl, released by Roadrunner Records on May 22nd.

“The real-life time travel that music can achieve is almost supernatural. In a moment you can be transported from a bedroom in the south of England to another dimension entirely. With our latest album, we attempted to perform a similar magic. The concept behind the artwork came to me when I was considering the ways I first discovered music. Both Ian Miles and I have similar stories of discovering our parents’ records. Holding in our hands these battered relics of the past, playing them for the first time and experiencing the magic of them coming to life over the speaker.

This being the case, our album cover attempts to live up to that promise. It would fit in with our parents’ records of the past, you could find it in a dusty attic, blow off the cobwebs, play it at any moment in time and be transported.” – Will Gould.

Southampton born emo revivalists Creeper scared the life out of fans when they hinted that their sold-out show at Koko in 2018 might be their last. In fact, it was just the end of the past as they usher in a new era with the arrival of second album ‘Sex, Death & the Infinite Void’. “The infinite void was literally where we were drifting for some time while making this album. I didn’t know if Creeper was going to come back, I didn’t know if we were over. I was floating through California with the shards of a broken relationship and a band that I’d just broken up on stage that had been my life’s work.” – Will Gould

Is emorock dead? It is a question that we have been able to answer wholeheartedly with ‘no’ since this year. At the beginning of this year there would be the great return of My Chemical Romance, which our good friend corona put a stop to, but fortunately there is a new bond with the abilities of the latter. Creeper is the name and with Sex, Death & The Infinite Void they release the perfect emo-rock record. They do this by telling a story in a quirky way. A story that goes from great “Annabelle” that touch you to the deepest of your heart to solid rockers like “Napalm Girls”. Unlike the debut, the band doesn’t go anywhere too brutally, and that ensures that every song on this second record contains the necessary drama, accessibility and melancholy. The perfect record for the end of the world and let 2020 have been just a bit.

Creeper will be hitting the road during March next year, heading out on a huge tour to promote the new material
