As the March 24th release of their debut album ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ edges ever closer, CREEPER can now announce details of their biggest European headline tour to date. The news follows their spectacular rise throughout 2016 which included winning Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards and Best New Band at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards. As well as landing a daytime playlist at Radio 1, lead track ‘Suzanne’ has also been championed by Sir Elton John on his Beats 1 show.
Having just completed a tour with Pierce The Veil and letlive., CREEPER’s rise can be demonstrated as each London headline show has increased in scale from The Old Blue Last to The Barfly to The Underworld and now to The Electric Ballroom on March 30th. CREEPER’s immersive and theatrical stage show (previously seen at landmark events including their homecoming Halloween show and their headline gig at The Underworld) will be more elaborate than ever before, and will feature on all tour dates for the first time in the band’s history.
Says vocalist Will Gould:
“These shows are a significant moment in the history of Creeper; not only are they the first time you’ll hear the new songs from ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ live, but they are the biggest headline shows we’ve ever played. They will also be the first to have a full, ambitious production to equal the ambitious character of our debut record.
After two years of touring mainly as a support band, we understand the importance and significance of our support acts on this tour too. We are lucky enough to have the most amazing package to compliment this adventure. I’m still pinching myself at the full line-up we have for this tour. It is very representative of the shifting climate in music right now, and we’re very excited to be representing that new wave.
We couldn’t be more excited about this tour. So please, see this as an invitation to come and step into the world of our records, and an invitation to be a big part of the history of this band at our biggest shows to date.”
The band will announce details of the full line-up in the near future, with one band being revealed each week – exclusively via the tour media partner That’s Not Metal podcast – starting from December 16th.

‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ was recently previewed by the lead single ‘Suzanne’, which blends flamboyant teen scream theatrics with an adrenalized shot of punk ‘n’ roll. Produced by the band’s regular collaborator Neil Kennedy at The Ranch and then mixed by Neal Avron (Twenty One Pilots), the album is available to pre-order from creepercult.com/.
