A little summer treat comes to Bedford this Saturday (August 12), when Canadian "horror punk psychobilly garage-rock" 5 piece The Creepshow roll into town as part of their UK tour!
Formed in the dirty back alleys and dive bars of Toronto The Creepshow has redefined the saying 'No Rest For The Wicked.'
Fronted by the vivacious Kenda (guitar/vocals) and backed by the swarthy Sean “Sick Boy” McNab (stand-up bass/vox), The Reverend McGinty (sermons/organ/vocals) 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.
The band’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.
They have stage-shared 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.
