Creepoid Get Pretty and Vacant on ‘Cemetery Highrise Slum’ LP

Out June 23 on Collect Records

Philadelphia’s Creepoid has been quietly churning out slow, heavy, and foreboding rock songs over the course of four releases in the last five years, but singer/guitarist Sean Miller says that their forthcoming Cemetery Highrise Slum “feels like [their] very first record.” At the very least, this new collection feels like their most fleshed-out release to date, fulfilling the gloomy promise of their doom-laden brand of slowcore by mixing in a glassy-eyed sense of melody that’d make Meat Puppets proud.

Cemetery Highrise Slum is out June 23 on Collect Records, but you can stream it in full here.
