Creeper Announce Christmas EP With Cover of Fairytale of New York

Friday, 01 December 2017 Written by Huw Baines

Creeper have announced a Christmas EP.

Alongside a brace of covers - the Pogues and Kirsty MacColl’s Fairytale of New York and Blue Christmas, made famous by Elvis Presley - the collection will feature a new song from the goth-punks called Same Time Next Year?.

It’s out digitally on December 8.

Ever since we were kids Fairytale of New York has always been our favourite Christmas song. Shane MacGowan and Kirsty MacColl trading insults in the lyrics and the overall sad tone of the song always appealed to us. Having both male and female vocalists, we’ve wanted to cover it for sometime but every Christmas we seemed to be on tour. This year however, we luckily had a gap we could squeeze it into.

Alongside this we had time to also put together Blue Christmas and even our own song too. The three songs form something of a miserable Christmas EP which will be released digitally on December 8.

Creeper's Theatre of Fear tour hits UK venues starting on December 3.

Creeper Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows:

Sun December 03 2017 - GLASGOW O2 ABC
Mon December 04 2017 - BIRMINGHAM O2 Institute
Tue December 05 2017 - BRISTOL Trinity
