Theatrical U.K. goth punks Creeper have the fifth and latest single, “Be My End,” off their forthcoming sophomore album, Sex, Death & the Infinite Void, which is due on July 31st via Roadrunner Records. The song sets a story of “apocalyptic romance” to sweeping piano and glammy hooks, and it arrives accompanied by a stark, noirish animated music video directed by Marco Pavone, whose credits include Dua Lipa. The clip brings to life the narrative behind Sex, Death & The Infinite Void, a concept album, and its world of the fictional town of Calvary Falls. Watch and listen below.
“‘Be My End’ is the opening song on our new album Sex, Death & The Infinite Void,” Creeper frontman Will Gould commented. “Thematically it introduces the ‘apocalyptic romance’ that the album deals in. The music video marks the first time the band have used animation to tell its story. Calvary Falls is realized in its full glory as our narrative hurtles towards its conclusion. This is the band in a way you’ve never seen it before.”
Sex, Death & The Infinite Void represents Creeper’s comeback album after purported retirement — the band was resurrected back in November 2019 with a surprise show in London. In addition to “Be My End,” the LP, which is available for pre-order here, also includes the previously released singles “Born Cold,” “Annabelle,” “Cyanide” and “All My Friends.” But that’s not all the music that Creeper have been sharing with fans amid the COVID-19 lockdown: The band has also been offering up acoustic covers via their “Sounds From the Void” series, the latest being a take on King Dude’s “Spiders In Her Hair.”
