Southampton’s Creeper have shared a new single called ‘All My Friends’, which comes from their second album ‘Sex, Death & The Infinite Void’, which sadly was recently delayed.
The delay in the album’s release was a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which is unfortunately impacting and postponing many releases, shows and tours for artists across the world.
The band debuted the video for the track via NME, with an accompanying interview with vocalist Will Gould who expanded further on the song’s meaning, which was written when guitarist Ian Miles was hospitalised for mental health reasons.
“‘All My Friends’ was written at a time of particular desperation, drunk at a piano late in the night in Hollywood, California. The songs on our last record were woven from dreams of fantasy, written from a very grey reality. In contrast this song was written about a very sobering reality, only from a very fantastical place.
Everyone had gone home from the studio for the night, I sat alone slumped over the piano in the live room and this song just fell out, it felt like it was trying to escape me.”
It was a song I’d written for my best friend who could not be there with me, one that I thought no one would ever hear. It became clear as time went on that an important part of this record was the truth within the fiction. Hannah [Greenwood, keys] persuaded me to include it.
It is the last song on our new album ‘Sex, Death & The Infinite Void’ and one that I hadn’t imagined people to hear for a few more months. But considering the global situation we thought it apt to share it now.”

The band’s second studio album, ‘Sex, Death & The Infinite Void’, will be released on July 31st 2020 through Roadrunner Records.
