Creeper's Will Gould Launches New Project, Salem

Following the release of Creeper's brilliant second album Sex, Death & The Infinite Void at the end of July, frontman Will Gould is back already with more new music.

Will has just unveiled his brand-new project Salem alongside Matt Reynolds (Howard’s Alias, Skylar, Drawings), with the pair's self-titled debut EP due out on October 23 via Roadrunner Records.

“It was a labour of love for us,” explains the musician of the release. “We’re releasing when a lot of kids are stuck inside, or if they’re not, their life isn’t quite the same. It’s a way to soundtrack this very difficult time. The power of punk rock is that it helps you forget about the monotony of every day. And life has never been as monotonous as it is now.”

To coincide with the announcement of Salem, the band have released a brand-new single and video, Destroy Me, which Will says “is a really good introduction that summarises the band, it had the right kind of energy from the offset.

“This band feels like a love letter to a lot of our early influences,” he continues. “It’s a return to our roots in a lot of ways.”
