Creeper Have Released A Powerfully Honest New Single
Ahead of the release of upcoming album Sex, Death & The Infinite Void in July, Creeper have shared one of their most honest songs ever: All My Friends.
“All My Friends was born from the void during our darkest of times,” explains frontman Will Gould. “The song was written late one night in Hollywood. I was left alone in the studio and found myself at the piano. it was such an honest expression that it almost felt too personal to release.
“Originally this song was not intended to have its own release, though in these unprecedented times and during Mental Health Awareness Week, it was our wish that it reach you now.”

The track is the “only directly autobiographical” song that features on Sex…, with Will telling Kerrang! of the entirely new world that was created for the rest of the record: “It’s about a small town in America, based on Dunsmuir [in Siskiyou County, northern California, with a population of fewer than 1,700], and about our feelings of being Englishmen in America and feeling alienated in a lot of ways.
“We decided to encapsulate that with this character from another world, an angel who falls to earth, who’s an outsider in a small town and who falls in love with a woman, while learning to be human and feel again. That’s based on feelings I had being on tour, especially the Warped Tour, where I was stuck in a shell, struggling to emote and ingratiate myself, which was odd for me.”
