English punk band Creeper stopped at Center Stage Theater in Atlanta on Friday during The Peace and The Panic Tour with Seaway, Speak Low If You Speak Love, and the headliner, Neck Deep. The band formed in 2014 and also released their self-titled EP, Creeper later that year. Since then, Creeper has released two more EPs and more recently, their debut album Eternity, In Your Arms in 2017. This punk band from Southampton consists of lead vocalist Will Gould, vocalist and keyboard player Hannah Greenwood, bassist Sean Scott, guitarists Oliver Burdett and Ian Miles, and drummer Dan Bratton. Over the years, Creeper has built a very dedicated and passionate fanbase that was certainly present at Friday’s show.
Creeper was the second band to take the stage and they immediately caught the crowd’s attention with their unique and powerful sound. The band, particularly Will Gould, had a captivating and energetic stage presence that kept the crowd on their toes. He knew how to interact with the audience and his fans and the passion he put into the set was tangible and felt by everyone in the room. The crowd was very involved in Creeper’s set especially when the band requested a circle pit, typical for one of their lively and epic shows. If you’re into the heavy punk scene, then a Creeper show is the place for you.
With many hard-earned awards such as Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards and Rock Sound’s readers’ poll and Best New Band at the Metal Hammer Golden God Awards, Creeper has definitely proven themselves to be quite the punk band who has gained such a huge following in a short amount of time. Their dedication and unique artistic approach in their music and image has captivated a large audience and will continue to bring them more fame in the years to come.
