After returning with a pair of critically acclaimed singles, Sydney-based indie-rock quartet CREOhave announced tour dates and delivered their sophomore EP ‘In The Red’ – engineered and produced by long-time collaborator Nathan Sheehy (Dune Rats, Birds of Tokyo, Kim Churchill).
‘In The Red’ is six songs of brooding, eclectic and thought-provoking indie-rock. It ranges from the slow burning opening cut ‘Sentenced To Ten’, to the soaring stadium-rock of the title track, and the infectious scream-driven sing-a-longs of ‘Plasticine Mezzanine’. The final result shines a light on the group’s ability to continually push the envelope with their deft approach to song writing.
Both lead singles ‘In The Red’ and ‘Plasticine Mezzanine’ were warmly received by the likes of triple j, triple j Unearthed, community radio, Spotifyand worldwide tastemakers Indie Obsessive(USA), buffaBLOG(USA), The Revue(CAN), Dansende Beren(BEL), ParaPOP(IDN) and Pilerats(AUS).
Following on from strongly attended shows in Sydney, Wollongongand Melbourne, the band will head out on the road again in November to perform in all three East Coast capitals.
In 2017, CREO carved out a reputation as one of the hardest working live bands in the country, by performing forty-two shows, which included Falls Festival, selling out their own headline shows and sharing stages alongside Nothing But Thieves(UK), Minus The Bear(USA), British India, Last Dinosaurs, Tired Lion,Polish Cluband Bad//Dreems.
‘In The Red’ EP will be available worldwide on Friday October 26
