Only the best bands can make statements with their songs. Creeper just threw open the windows to Neverland.

The best rock bands do statements. Fists in the air. Moments where the cavalry comes flying over the horizon, horns blasting, obsidian black chargers thundering closer by the second. Those that can pull it off go down in legend, their names written in the foundations of a genre.

It’s a skill which comes with time. Few, if any, pull it off without years of experience under their belt. They start with records that show promise - that spark and shine, and suggest that one day, down the line, they’ll cut that song.

But then, Creeper have never been like other bands.

Their story has been building for a while now. From shadowy corners to the bright lights, the beating purple heart of British rock’s chosen ones has echoed louder and louder with each step. As ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ lies little over a month away, that throbbing muscle has burst free. We can contain them no longer. With ‘Black Rain’, the opening track of their debut album, Creeper have made their statement.

The comparisons are no stranger. The swagger of My Chemical Romance’s Black Parade at its hyperbolic heights. The raw power of a lexicon of homegrown heroes, from 80s giants to their modern day equivalents. They all ring true, but none of them hold Creeper down. With a dash of their own magic fairy dust, they’re their own band - familiar, yet like nothing that’s come before. Never growing up, every note shimmers with possibilities. Offering an outstretched hand to a world in need of escape, Creeper might just save us all. Stephen Ackroyd
