Today, Creeper have released a brand new single called “America At Night.” The song will appear on their upcoming EP, American Noir, which will be released on July 30th via Roadrunner Records.
“America At Night” follows the previously released “Midnight” off of American Noir, and is indicative of Crepeer’s ever-expanding ambition. The song builds slow with an initial funeral march rhythm as it uses an emotive piano and stirring strings to bring its cinematic majesty to life. Throw in Ian Miles’ most timeless solo to date and Will Gould’s black hearted show man quality, as he builds from solemnly intoned poetic twists on pop culture references towards a sky-scraping hook.
Gould explains on the song, “‘America At Night’ finds our character Annabelle in mourning after the death of forbidden lover, Roe. Written in the heart of Hollywood, California, the home of the romantic tragedy, this is one of the most dramatic pieces we’ve ever created.”
“America At Night” further fuels anticipation for American Noir. A requiem to Roe, the central character from their Top 5 album Sex, Death and The Infinite Void, the EP puts a new focus on keyboardist and second vocalist Hannah Greenwood, while the band’s ability to conjure atmospherics is further developed with three mood-setting interludes.
American Noir is now available to pre-order here, and will be released on digital and physical formats. In addition to the standard artwork, there are two limited edition variants featuring the characters Roe and Annabelle.
