Creeper are up to something

Creeper are up to no good.

Shortly after playing groundbreaking sets at Reading & Leeds Festivals, their Twitter account started posting images of white noise with the band quickly denying it was them, even sharing a photo of the band all together. Then all their accounts vanished.

But the story doesn’t end there. Oh no.

Remember when Creeper released their ‘The Stranger’ EP? The preorder came with a t-shirt bearing the number 023 8000 0376 which led to a voicemail. Well, that message has since changed. If you call the Southampton-based number, you’ll hear a creepy minute-and-a-bit snippet of music before receiving a text message sending you to this website.

There’s a lot to explore in regards to the disappearance of James Scythe, the question of where he is sits in the bio of Creeper’s very empty Twitter account, but a podcast the missing man created explores the legacy and folklore of “The Stranger” and “The Callous Heart”. Sound familiar?

There’s also a link to this website which further explores the mysteries of Southampton, once again including “The Callous Heart” and “The Stranger” and earlier today, missing person posters for the six members of Creeper appeared on their Facebook.

What does this mean? No idea. Either the ghost from Room 309 is back, or there’s a mystery to solve.
