Creeper are destined for arenas with ‘Black Rain’

It’s not quite clear if the beginning of Creeper’s latest release ‘Black Rain’ is a skin-crawling cringe-fest, or the startĀ of the opening track of what could be one of the defining albums of our generation, but – man alive – Creeper have confirmed they know how to write a song to thrill their audience.

Although the comparisons to My Chemical Romance are understandable given the dedication to their band’s aesthetic, they’re not on the same level just yet. But, with the ever-growing prominence of keyboardist Hannah Greenwood’s vocals and the unwavering flamboyance of Will Gould as a front man, it’s a direction they’re probably heading in.

“And in the rain, I scream your name,” is going to be sung along at festivals and, although they might be sticking to smaller venues for now, their (bound to happen) future arena shows.
