As a special treat the fine folks from Creepin Cadaver’s shared a band photo from the upcoming album art. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the band…

from album “Now in 3D”

BBM: Give our readers a little history on your group
Creepin Cadavers came out of the ground in the spring of 2007. When my horror punk band, called it quits. Around the same time Jeff and Al’s band was breaking up as well. I was bored with the music scene in the area, dozens of bands all sounding the same. I had finally saved enough to purchase an upright bass and asked Jeff and Al if they would like to do something different. We hit the ground running and have been moving ever since.
BBM: what was your first major experience with music and how did you know you wanted to be in a band?
We as a band really started from the beginning with clear goals set and have been doing our best to achieve those goals. Touring, making new records, having people have a good time at our shows. That’s what’s most important about being in this band.
BBM: How did you come up with the band’s name?
We came up with the name one day sitting in Al’s room after practice. I think we blurted it out due to our love of classic zombie movies. It’s cheesy but I wouldn’t change it.
BBM: Three words that describe the band?
Loud Fast Melodic
BBM: Tell our readers about the new album;
The new album “Now in 3D” is a long awaited culmination of the bands evolution over the last few years. While not a complete departure from the last ride, we as a band have grown, as people have aged, and the music somewhat reflects that. The packaging we are doing is really going to be worth actually getting a hardcopy of the cd.
BBM: I love the name of the album “now in 3d” Who came up with it?
We were discussing cd layouts and artwork, and it was the first thing to pop into my head. I spent a lot of summer days when I was young sneaking into black and white horror movies, as well as some 3d Slasher movies and it’s been something I’ve always had an interest in.
BBM: How would you describe the sound of the album? 
A blend of music for everyone. We have always been a punk/Psychobilly band that didn’t really fit in either genre really well. This record really goes above and beyond to have a wide spectrum of all our musical tastes. Sure, the songs may seem campy at first, but if you scratch the surface you see that the songs hold something more. The songs range from aggressive and heavy, dark and broody, to happy and upbeat.
BBM: When/where can fans get their hands on it?
It will be available on our big cartel as well as itunes, and interpunk, but mainly the best place to get it is to come see us at a show! We also will be launching a kickstarter for the new record in December, which has some great rewards for anyone who wants to be a part of us making this record.
BBM: Where do you find inspiration in life?
Life experiences, and movies and books.
BBM: Favorite place to tour and why?
We have a few favorites. La, so much movie history there, we spent the day traveling to see see old movie locations. As well The great lake areas. Detroit, Milwaukee , Chicago. Over the years, we have made family with the crews and kids in those cities and we have a blast every time we head up there.
BBM: Funniest touring moment?
Too many to list, some I couldn’t say due to issues with the law. I will say. When driving through Texas and you are stopped at border patrol and asked if everyone’s an American citizen, SAY YES! They will drag you out of the van at 5 30 in the morning and search all your gear for drugs.
BBM: How’s the scene in your city?
Scene? What scene? Western mass is a difficult place to be a band.
BBM: What’s currently in heavy rotation in your record player?
Right now I’m on a big 1476 kick. It’s a band from Massachusetts, who puts out great broody dark but upbeat music.
BBM: A fact a fan may not know about you?
A fun fact of our band, we listen to strung out before our set to get syked up.
BBM: What’s coming up for the band in the future? I think a tour in Texas is in order!
The future of the band is to just keep making music , as well as hit the road as much as we can. Touring is where we shine. we love being out there and meeting new people and having a good time.
BBM: Where can fans get the latest news and some merch?
You can check our website for new, shows and info and we have a new big cartel just opened.
BBM: Any last words anything you want to add?
I’d like to add please check out our upcoming kickstarter and come see a show !
