New album "Sanguivore" to be released on Friday, October 13th via Spinefarm Records

A new chapter in the thrillingly theatrical story of CREEPER today gets underway as the acclaimed UK band share their brand new single "Cry To Heaven" and announce the Friday, October 13th release of their third album "Sanguivore". CREEPER’s previous albums - "Eternity, In Your Arms" and "Sex, Death & the Infinite Void" - have seen the band enamour an army of devotees, a highly committed following that propelled their second album to a Top 5 chart position.

Vocalist William Von Ghould says, “Keeping in line with the band’s ethos of aggressive musical progression, the song is once again an ambitious departure from previous works. 'Cry To Heaven' turns the key and unlocks a door to a new world of decadent excess. The introduction to a new tragic story of love, loss and vampires. This is Creeper at their most outrageous, harking back to a time where Jim Steinman ruled the airwaves in leather gloves and Aviators.”

Opening with the rousing harmonies of the devil’s own choir, "Cry To Heaven" immediately establishes another fresh evolution of CREEPER’s style. It’s a luscious, maximalist wall of sound in which swaggering hard rock at its most anthemic is amplified by punchy, high-drama synths, topped by the band’s signature vocal interplay between William Von Ghould’s sinister croon and Hannah Greenwood’s majestic range. It’s a track which sees CREEPER extending and updating thelineage of the darkwave hedonism of The Sisters of Mercy with the crunching guitars and wounded roar of Danzig. Those two bands are also reference points for the accompanying video, which sees Von Ghould channelling classic Andrew Eldritch vibes within a visual that feels like an S&M twist on "Lost Boys".

The song’s lyrics also tease the narrative that will unfold within the "Sanguivore" narrative. Its references to blood lust, sex, cannibalism and a human disguise hint at a new story of ill-fated love and corrosive lust - themes which burn throughout CREEPER’s previous album concepts. For the uninitiated, a sanguivore is an entity that needs to feast upon blood to survive.

"Cry To Heaven" is the latest result of CREEPER’s collaboration with the twisted mind of producer Tom Dalgety (Ghost, Royal Blood, The Cult, Killing Joke).

"Sanguivore" is now available to pre-order or pre-save HERE. In addition to its digital release, the album will be available on physical formats which include limited edition vinyl formats and CD.

Keine Rezi hierzu? Nachdem mich die Grave Pleasures dieses Jahr doch eher enttäuscht haben, haben mich Creeper überrascht. Fand die bisher nie überragend und konnte die Lobeshymnen vom Captain (und anderen) nicht nachvollziehen. Dieses Album hier hat aber echt Suchtpotenzial. Alles so herrlich drüber und dazwischen echt grandiose Hooks. Mal gucken, wie nachhaltig das Ganze ist. Stand jetzt stabile 8/10.
