Creeper's Ian Miles Details Debut Solo LP 'Degradation, Death, Decay', Posts New Track Truest Blue

Tuesday, 07 September 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Creeper's Ian Miles has shared details of his debut solo album. 

'Degradation, Death, Decay' will arrive on October 15 via Big Scary Monsters and feature the newly shared single Truest Blue, a dark, acoustic song that's guided by the singer-songwriter and guitarist's quavering heart-wrenching vocals. He said:

"I never really seen this as a solo project because I’ve been writing and recording acoustic music since I was about 15. I low key released some very old songs way before Creeper started and even during. I don’t want to be the focus of this record, it’s not about me so I have decided to hide me. I want people to solely focus on the art."

Commenting on the process of releasing the record, which he recorded in 2018 in his spare room, he added: "It's just taken me that long to build up the confidence to actually put it out there and mentally prepare myself for the prospect of playing shows. I recorded it all in my freezing cold spare room where the heating doesn’t work. I listen back to this record, and I can hear how cold I was in my voice. I had to wait until my wife left the house because I felt anxious about singing while she was around, but now it’s so rewarding to make something out of nothing."

Miles will play a hometown album release show at God's House Tower in Southampton on October 8. Head here for details. 

Creeper, meanwhile, will support their 2019 album, 'Sex, Death & The Infinite Void', with a rescheduled UK tour in December with Holding Absence, Wargasm and Static Dress.
