Watch Creeper’s “lavish and tragic” new video for Midnight
Following the release of new single Midnight last month, Creeper have now shared its excellent accompanying video.
“The video for Midnight welcomes our audience back into the world of Calvary Falls one final time to bear witness to the death of Roe,” explains Will Gould. “Olli Appleyard has created a visual as lavish and tragic as the music itself, we are so excited to share it with the world.”
The song is taken from Creeper’s upcoming American Noir EP, which is due out on July 30. Speaking to Kerrang! in May about the release, the vocalist said, “It’s kind of made up of surplus music that we made for the last record [Sex, Death & The Infinite Void]. Some of the songs I was writing for that last one, I was super proud of, they were awesome, but they just didn’t fit on the album. For whatever reason, either I had another song that I’d already put together that could fit that portion of the record better, or just didn’t seem to fit the vibe. So there was a big amount of material that had been held on to in the Dropbox.
“And it was funny, because I would play it to my girlfriend, and some of her favourites were the ones we didn’t even put on the album. So she would constantly be at me about it all the time. And then we knew that kind of a rebirth was coming up for everybody a little bit as well, coming back out into the world. So I thought it was a good time to revisit those songs, and put out something brand new and fresh. I know I keep doing releases all the time at the moment – I don’t know what’s going on. Somebody stop me!”
