CREATURE CREATURE are a rock band based in Brighton, England. Combining lightning-fast guitar hooks with complex keys and intelligent songwriting, the band are making waves with their unique style and energetic live performance.
Forming as folk-punk band 40 Shillings on the Drum in 2016, they were quickly embraced by the scene after winning Brighton’s Busk Stop competition with their first ever gig. A quick succession of show and festival bookings followed the release of their debut single and local favourite, ‘Brighton Belle’, which helped to cement the band’s reputation in the underground scene. After the follow-up single, ‘Everyman’, the band released, ‘The English Coast’, which garnered national news coverage because of it’s globally viral, feel-good music video and accompanying charity campaign for Brighton & Hove Impetus. It wasn’t until the line up finalised in the summer of 2017 that their ascent amongst the musical ranks really began to take shape. The band embarked on their first UK tour to promote the live album, ‘Live at the Albert’ along with playing festivals such as Hastings Fat Tuesday, Chiddfest and Beautiful Days where they shared the bill with the likes of Manic Street Preachers and The Hives. During this festival, they became friends with Skinny Lister and Tom Gleeson of Slaves to Gravity and Feeder, and in summer of 2019, hit the studio to record their debut album with Tom Gleeson on board as producer.
The album shows a huge departure from their traditional folk-punk roots, which led the band to rebrand their name to CREATURE CREATURE, reflecting the more contemporary, rock sound they had developed. The album is set to be released in May 2020 and the first single, ‘Video Nasty’, will be available worldwide to stream and download from Friday 28th February 2020.
