Creature Creature: Brighton Indie-Punk Rockers Unleash A Video Nasty Ahead Of Debut Album Two Finger Tantrum

Brighton's Creature Creature have used their downtime, since sharing festival stages with the likes of Manic Street Preachers and The Hives, by recording their forthcoming debut album, Two Finger Tantrum

The album (out 15th May 2020) sees Tommy Gleeson (Feeder guitarist & Slaves To Gravity frontman) taking on production duties.

In the lead up to Two Finger Tantrum's release the five-piece have unleashed their video for the single Video Nasty, which will drop on 28th February 2020.

Creature Creature frontman Scully said:

"The song takes its inspiration from the films which went on to become the video nasties of the 80s, but from my standpoint people don't turn bad because of the influence of TV, film and music. 

"There has to be some demons present within them in one form or another for such entertainment to have a negative effect. 

"I also threw in a few of the video nasty film titles into the lyrics, along with referencing a little of my own experience of renting videos when I was a child." 

The band, who have been making waves with their unique style and energetic live performances, combine lightning-fast guitar hooks with complex keys and thought provoking songwriting.

The new album shows a huge departure from the band's traditional folk-punk roots, which led to a re-brand and change in name from 40 Shillings On The Drum to Creature Creature; reflecting the development of their more contemporary rock sound. 

Last September they released the music video for No Time To Die, an unofficial theme song to the new James Bond film of the same name. 

The track, mixed by Gleeson, securing over 70k views on YouTube - will not feature on their debut album but will be released as a standalone single in the same week as the official theme song.

Creature Creature's debut album, 'Two Finger Tantrum", will be released on Friday 15th May 2020 and the first single, 'Video Nasty', will be available worldwide to stream and download from Friday 28th February 2020. CLICK HERE to keep up-to-date.
