Creeper announce UK headline tour for 2016

Dates as guests to Neck Deep also scheduled

2015 proved to be a phenomenal breakthrough for Southampton goth punks CREEPER. Signed to Roadrunner Records UK, the band earned a rush of critical acclaim for their debut EP ‘The Callous Heart’; hit the road with Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, The Misfits, Funeral For A Friend, Moose Blood and Twin Atlantic; and also burst onto the festival circuit at Download, the Vans Warped Tour UK, 2000 Trees, Hevy and Camden Rocks.

Currently working on an ambitious follow-up to ‘The Callous Heart’, CREEPER can now also announce details of their first UK headline tour of 2016. The dates – sandwiched between two previously announced sets of dates with pop-punkers Neck Deep – are scheduled as below:

Tickets are now available from www.creepercult.com. Aberdeen hardcore quintet Grader will be supporting on all of CREEPER’sheadline shows.

CREEPER’s core influences come from the dark-hearted pop-punk rush of The Misfits, Alkaline Trio and The Damned, yet their sound continues to evolve in scale to encompass the doomed romanticism of Nick Cave, the crunch of Metallica, and the flamboyance of Roxy Music and David Bowie. Visually and conceptually, their inspiration comes from old school horrors such as The Exorcist, The Twilight Zone and Phantom of the Paradise, as well as films which celebrate the outsider such as Heathers and Stand By Me.
