A little over a week ago, Creeper announced the release date for their upcoming album Sex, Death & The Infinite Void, along with a brief tour in the UK. Formerly The Fugitives of Heaven, the band ushered in their new era last year with the release of “Born Cold.”
Now, Creeper dropped the second single off their upcoming album titled “Annabelle”. Check it out below.
Last night, Creeper premiered the new “Annabelle” on BBC Radio 1. Prior to the release, they tweeted a tease of the song.

Listen to “Anabelle” by Creeper below.
Annabelle we’re both going to hell.
You’re gonna love the clientele, the cheap rent and the climates’ swell.
Annabelle i’ve been drunk since half past twelve, don’t bring me down.
The world it seems to be ending constantly.
Between the smoking, drinking and getting high, i’d shed a tear if i could find the time.
God can’t save us
So let’s live like sinners.
Commiserations to your mum and your dad, my reassurances it’s not that bad.
You’ve got to live a little when their world just wants you sad.
Annabelle where the forbidden dwell, come lay me down.
The heavens are open.
The angels descending.
God bless you, undress you and this unhappy ending.
The underworld kids of the choir will sing
“Hallelujah! God has left the building”

Speaking on the album artwork, vocalist Will Gould took inspiration from when he first found music.
“The real-life time travel that music can achieve is almost supernatural,” he says in a press release. “In a moment you can be transported from a bedroom in the south of England to another dimension entirely. With our latest album, we attempted to perform a similar magic.”
“The concept behind the artwork came to me when I was considering the ways I first discovered music. Both Ian Miles and I have similar stories of discovering our parents’ records. Holding in our hands these battered relics of the past, playing them for the first time and experiencing the magic of them coming to life over the speaker.”
In a previous interview, Gould revealed that the album is unique.
“No one will put a record out like this next year,” he states. “You won’t hear anything like it.”
Sex, Death & the Infinite Void drops May 22. Preorder for the album began Jan. 15 and can be found here.
