CREEPER will perform in March 24 next year at Becketts in Leeds as part of a short tour to promote their new album.

The Covid-19 pandemic means the gigs will be the first in support of the album Sex, Death & The Infinite Void, which is released on July 31 this year.

A spokesman said: "From the anthemic rush of ‘Born Cold’ to the poignant ‘All My Friends’ and the glam-goth Americana that runs through ‘Be My End’, Creeper demonstrate that their long-awaited second album’ represents a huge leap in both ambition and narrative scale."

The God Can’t Save Us was originally scheduled to coincide with the album release, but has been rescheduled, with some dates agreed to bigger venues at the original venues sold-out.

The tour has been boosted by the addition of openers Static Dress, who join a line-up completed by Wargasm (UK) and Holding Absence.

Creeper frontman Will Gould said: "I'm sure many of you are disappointed that the tour is being rescheduled and we are too, as we’re so eager to be able to play these new songs for you. We’re going to do everything we can to make it worth the wait. T

"These shows will now be some of the biggest of our career to date and we promise to make them more spectacular than anything you’ve seen us do in the past. Thank you so much as always for understanding and supporting us."

‘Sex, Death & The Infinite Void’ is a concept album which loosely mirrors Gould’s life. Boy moves to new city, goes off the rails, meets new girl, falls in love and the world as they know it ends. The band have reshaped the joy and the spirit of Creeper through the lens of the colourful and sentimental Americana of Bruce Springsteen and Roy Orbison, with the theatrical glam of Marc Bolan and T-Rex.

Formed in Southampton, Creeper soon developed a die-hard following of fans. The Creeper Cult quickly became enamoured with the band’s visionary hybrid of engaging narratives, striking theatricality and a sound simultaneously visceral, grandiose and adventurous. 

Their debut album ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ shot straight into the Top 20, while early acclaim included Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards, Best New Band at the Metal Hammer Golden God Awards, and Best British Newcomer in the Rock Sound readers’ poll.
