Creeper have teased they could be returning after posting a string of mysterious social media posts.
The Southampton goth-punks, who seemingly played their last show in November 2018, have been supplying fans with several posts of paranormal images and videos on Instagram that hint at their revival.
A shrouded bolt icon has been appearing in the posts and eagle-eyed fans have now spotted the icon on a gig poster for an unknown band called Fugitives of Heaven.
The gig, as Dead Press noted today (September 29), is advertised as being held at 229 London on November 1 2019. That’s exactly one year to the day since the group’s farewell show at London’s KOKO.
Meanwhile, on Monday (September 23) guitarist Ollie Burdett posted on Instagram Stories to explain how he was watching The Simpsons but he was disrupted by drones flying outside his window.
In a subsequent post, his TV began warping with static, before a sudden flash of light revealed a ghostly figure standing in his living room. Since then, Ollie’s social media has gone suspiciously quiet.
Elsewhere, Creeper frontman Will Gould deleted all his Instagram posts, bar an Instagram story which featured an ominous sounding phone call. The transcript of that call is below – and it all fits the mysterious intrigue and paranormal storylines that followed the band around before they released their debut ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’, back in 2017.

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. How the trumpets will sound and the Dead will be raised imperishable and we will be changed.
How this perishable must put on the imperishable and this mortal must put on immortality

NME has contacted representatives for Creeper in a bid to get to the bottom of it all.
In a four-star review of ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’, NME described the record as “the best gothic revival you’ll hear all freaking year”.
“Every day is Halloween with Creeper, in the very best way. Parts of ‘Hiding With Boys’ resemble The Cure, and Will Gould often sounds like he’s crooning from inside a velvet-lined coffin. All that’s left is to don your jaunty capes and black eyeliner, because as they say on ‘Misery’: “Misery never goes out of style“‘,” our verdict stated.
