Creeper Unveil Piano Renditions Of Born Cold, Annabelle And Cyanide
Ahead of the release of their highly-anticipated new album Sex, Death & The Infinite Void in May, Creeper have unveiled three absolutely gorgeous piano renditions of the singles that fans have already heard.
The chosen songs – Born Cold, Annabelle and Cyanide – come courtesy of keyboardist/vocalist Hannah Greenwood, who has reworked the band’s theatrical punk into something altogether more stripped back – but no less impactful.

Discussing the creation of Sex, Death & The Infinite Void with Kerrang!, frontman Will Gould revealed that the follow-up to debut album Eternity, In Your Arms came about from a focus on the wider world away from the band’s hometown of Southampton.
“Whereas before we’d transformed our hometown into something more fantastical than it was, with a first record that told people where we’d been, this time we felt we needed to show people where we’d gone since,” he said. “We started thinking about creating an entirely new world not reliant on landmarks that already existed, but building from the ground up.”
As for what he can tell us about this new world?
“To give you the elevator pitch,” he says, “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.”
