Acclaimed rock band Creeper unleash new single and video “America at night” from upcoming EP “American Noir“
The initial funeral march rhythm of the song gradually grows in texture as it takes on a cinematic majesty, with emotive piano, stirring strings, and arguably Ian Miles’ most evocative and timeless solo to date. As ever, Will Gould brings a black-hearted showman quality, as he builds from solemnly intoned poetic twists on pop culture references towards a sky-scraping hook.
Gould says, “‘America At Night’ finds our character Annabelle in mourning after the death of forbidden lover, Roe. Written in the heart of Hollywood, California, the home of the romantic tragedy, this is one of the most dramatic pieces we’ve ever created.”
A requiem to Roe, the central character from their Top 5 album Sex, Death and The Infinite Void, the EP puts a new focus on keyboardist and second vocalist Hannah Greenwood, while the band’s ability to conjure atmospherics is further developed with three mood-setting interludes
In addition to the standard artwork, there are two limited edition variants featuring the characters Roe and Annabelle.
The preview show is part of the There Is Light concert series, and will be streamed live from The Lafayette, London on July, 25th.
Now close to being sold-out, next tour includes their biggest London show to date at the O2 Forum Kentish Town. The band are also set to play Reading and Leeds in August, while 2022 festival plans are taking shape with Mad Cool and Vainstream Rockfest already confirmed. Please see here for ticket information.
