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.”
When sharing the track, the band wrote, “But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars – they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death. This is Born Cold.”

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 begins Jan. 15 and can be found here.
