THE CREEPSHOW
THE CREEPSHOW
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 vivacious Kenda (guitar/vox) and backed by the swarthy Sean "Sick Boy" McNab (stand-up bass/vox), The Reverend McGinty (sermons/organ/vox) and the righteous Sandro (skins), THE CREEPSHOW is an explosion of live energy that is a tasty treat for the ears and eyes alike… Whatever you do though, don't write THE CREEPSHOW off as just another psychobilly band. While their lyrics draw inspiration from b-movies and early horror films, they're also full of personal insight and personal stories dealing with everything from addiction to mental health to tales of love gone horribly wrong.

***Named as "One of the top bands you need to know about" by Alternative Press.

THE CREEPSHOW's passion for touring is borderline obsessive-compulsive. They have an incredibly personal dedication to their fans and their live show that is nothing short of astounding. Watching their set is a full frontal assault on all your senses and you definitely have to stay on your toes when you're at one of their shows. You never know when they might rush into the crowd for a scream-along with fans or launch their band mates across the stage from the neck of the stand up bass. THE CREEPSHOW have shared the stage with countless awesome bands including Rancid, Tiger Army, The Buzzcocks, The Unseen, Agnostic Front, Mad Sin, Demented Are Go and have appeared on killer touring fests like Warped Tour, Ink n' Iron, Festival Of Fear, Mighty Sounds, Rebellion, Japan Punk Spring and Australia's Soundwave Fest.

***Winner of the FU Award for "Best Live Band" by Edge 102 (Canada's biggest rock radio station.

THE CREEPSHOW's debut album "Sell Your Soul" came out 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 nonstop tour across the USA, Canada and Europe. At they very beginning of their European tour, they were hijacked by fake cops in Spain 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.

*** "Seriously, if you like psychobilly bands with great female vocals you'll love this album and this band. It really is a must-have for fans of this genre" - Punknews - 4 outta 5 stars

In 2008, THE CREEPSHOW took a month off from the road to go into the studio and record the stunning follow up "Run For Your Life". This time around the fan and media response was off the chain. Seriously. Rave reviews came flowing in like a 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 was released in Oct 27th that same year. In fact, THE CREEPSHOW are the first Canadian band to sign to the label!

*** "Not all great rock n' roll needs to be performed by complete greasebags. As Toronto psychobilly stalwarts THE CREEPSHOW prove, you can look great while rockin' a city to it's foundations" – Chart Magazine

In the summer of 2010, the Creepshow finally returned home to their native Toronto for the first time in a very long time. Inspired by their years of travel, hundreds of shows and slightly battered by the experience, the band entered the studio with only one thought on their collective mind…REVENGE! The resulting full-length "They All Fall Down" is by far the band's best and most terrifying to date. From the opening explosive chords on "Get What's Coming" to the deceptively seductive ballad "Sleep Tight" to the knock-down-drag-out punk rock title anthem, "They All Fall Down" is a full throttle hellride into the Creepshow's dark and wonderful world. Released wordwide in October 2010, the band once again took their eye-popping live show across the globe.

Fast forward through almost 2 years of constant touring, debauchery and general mayhem to the present time. The Creepshow are back on their home turf and ready to rumble. A line-up change in 2012 added some killer new blood to the band in the form of Kenda (vox/guitar) and Sandro (drums). Both members have a brought a revitalized energy and intensity to the gang along with fresh new sources of songwriting talent. The Creepshow are currently quarantined deep in their laboratory working on their 4th full-length album.

Which brings us to the title… "Life After Death" is the fourth full-length from Canada's reigning heavyweight champions of macabre, horror-soaked radness. Self-produced with the engineering magic of longtime friend Steve Rizun at Drive Studios (The Flatliners, Dillinger Four, Ill Scarlett, Protest The Hero etc), "Life After Death" is a sonic ear-gasm of debauched delights. Eleven venom-drenched bangers run the gamut of themes ranging from bloody revenge (duh) to unconventional love to the joys of cocktails to defiance in the face of insurmountable adversity and back again. This is the redefined, renewed, resurrected Creepshow at their very finest.

Like a bombshell in a whirlwind, the force of nature known as The Creepshow will be descending on a town near you soon and you don't want to miss them when they do. Just don't get too close…
