“Jen’s lyrics were really in your face — zombies, ghouls, goblins kind of thing,” he said. “In one song, that song Run For Your Life is actually an anti-cocaine song, but we kind of took cocaine and personified it as a demon.”

When they heard the finished product, even the members of the band were surprised by its unexpectedly heavier sound.

“I didn’t really know. We were done it and I was just like, ‘whoa, there it is! I like it, let’s see what happens,’” McNab said.

And during their live performances there’s a lot more than the music to capture the audience’s attention — expect a full theatrical performance from these high-energy entertainers.

“Our live show is super important to us. We spend a lot of time — probably just as much time as we spend on writing the songs,” McNab said. “There are so many times you go see a band that you haven’t seen yet that you love, then you watch them and you’re like, ‘wow, that was boring as hell’… We try and make it the opposite.”

Run For Your Life was released in Canada on Aug. 26 and will be released at the end of September in Europe.

The Creepshow returns to rock-out with Los Furios in Whistler on Saturday night.
