Creeper have dropped a fittingly cinematic video for the nine-minute opener of their latest album, ‘Sanguivore’.
‘Further Than Forever’ kicks off the record with a grandiose sonic voyage and introduces the concept album’s two characters: the sinister vampire Mercy, an “armageddon girl could end your world with one look” and her relationship with Spook, who is taken in by her spell.
The video brings their story to life, starting with the moment Spook first laid eyes on Mercy – have a watch below.
‘Sanguivore’ arrived last week, October 13, and has so far received widespread acclaim.
In our recent Album Story feature diving into the record, Creeper frontman Will Gould, or William Von Ghould as he is now known, gave us insight into the making of the record and its concept, saying:
“We had this idea about doing a vampire record for a long time. It was always planned for the third one to be this way.
“After the second one swung into such a different direction, it made sense for the pendulum to swing back and go much darker in terms of aesthetic. But with the music, I wanted an overhaul.
To celebrate the recent album, we teamed up with the band to bring you this exclusive t-shirt, inspired by lead single ‘Cry To Heaven’.

Explaining the brand-new music video, Gould has since gone on to explain:
“The music video for ‘Further Than Forever’ is an ambitious 9 minute epic made by Billy H Price and Jacek Zmarz.
“The film dives back into the world of Sanguivore, introduces the character of Spook and tells the story of his relationship across oceans of time with Mercy.“
The video has been directed by Billy Howard Price and Jacek Zmarz – the same team behind the band’s recent ‘Teenage Sacrifice’ video.
Creeper are set to take their full theatrical show on the road next month for ‘The Sacred Blasphemy’ tour, which features special guests Save Face and The Nightmares.
