Formed in the dirty back alleys and dive bars of Toronto, Ontario in 2005, THE CREEPSHOW has redefined the saying “No Rest For The Wicked”. Since their inception, the band has brought their genre-defying blend of country-tinged, psycho punk rock n’ roll to over 25 countries worldwide with plans to conquer many more as soon as possible. Fronted by the fiery Sarah “SIN” Blackwood (guitar/vox) and backed by the swarthy Sean “Sick Boy” McNab (stand-up bass/vox), The Reverend McGinty (sermons/organ/vox) and the righteous Matt “Pomade” Gee (drums), THE CREEPSHOW is an explosion of live energy that is a tasty treat for the ears and eyes alike… Whatever you do, don’t you dare write them off as just another psychobilly band. While their lyrics draw inspiration from b-movies and early horror films, they’re also full of intriguing insight and personal stories dealing with everything from addiction to anxiety to love gone terribly, terribly wrong.
THE CREEPSHOW’s passion for touring is borderline obsessive-compulsive. They have an incredibly intense dedication to their fans that is nothing short of astounding. Watching their set is a full frontal assault to all your senses and you definitely have to stay on your toes when you’re at one of their eye-scorching live shows. You never know when or if Sarah might decide jump off Sean’s upright bass and launch herself across the stage or drop a size 4 TUK creeper upside the head of unruly photographers or troublemakers in the pit. THE CREEPSHOW have shared the stage with countless awesome bands including Rancid, Tiger Army, The Unseen, Agnostic Front, Mad Sin, Demented Are Go and have appeared on killer touring fests like Vans Warped, Ink n’ Iron, Festival Of Fear, Mighty Sounds, Rebellion and are also confirmed on Australia’s legendary Soundwave Fest in 2010!
THE CREEPSHOW’s debut album “Sell Your Soul” hit the ground running in 2006 and immediately caught the attention of fans and press worldwide. With the onslaught of media attention and demand from fans, the band dropped everything and embarked on an endless tour across the USA, Canada and Europe. On one of their first stops in Spain along their European tour, they were hijacked by fake cops and robbed of nearly everything they had. While most sane bands would have hung their heads and called it a day, THE CREEPSHOW sucked it up and finished the remaining 5 weeks of the tour without batting a lash. That’s just how they roll.
In 2008, THE CREEPSHOW took a month off from the road to hit the studio and record their stunning follow up full-length “Run For Your Life”. This time around the fan and media response was off the chain. Seriously. Rave reviews came flowing in like a biblical flood, so the band packed up and headed out on tour again; bringing their revamped, insane live show to the farthest reaches of the earth. The album also caught the attention of Hellcat Records and is slated for an Oct 27th release. In fact, THE CREEPSHOW is the very first Canadian band to sign to the label!!!
With their unwavering work ethic and unfaltering love of touring, THE CREEPSHOW will continue to chart uncharted waters and break new ground in support of Run For Your Life. Upcoming tour plans include about a zillion shows in the US, Canada, Europe, Japan, Australia and everywhere in between…Be on the lookout for THE CREEPSHOW when they hit your town..cuz they will most definitely be on the lookout for you.
