First the Pixies, then Alice in Chains, then Rage Against the Machine, then Sublime, then blink-182, then Limp Bizkit, then Faith No More and now Creed? Wow, just about almost every old school band has been getting back together. Ultimate-Guitar.com (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/news/upcoming_releases/creed_confirms_reunion_tour_dates_and_album_detail s.html) reported yesterday that Creed has reformed after five years away and they're planning a new album and tour. More information is below:


After breaking up in 2004, Creed is back and is planning a new album and tour dates for 2009. "It’s a renewing and a rebirth," singer Scott Stapp tells Rolling Stone (http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2009/04/27/creeds-scott-stapp-calls-reunion-a-renewing-and-a-rebirth/) about the reunion. "I missed my boys and wanted to create music with them again. We’re all thrilled to have a second chance to make a first impression."

Stapp claims the band’s reunion stems from a meeting he had with guitarist Mark Tremonti in December. The two agreed to meet up in Stapp’s hotel prior to Stapp singing the National Anthem at Champs Sports Bowl. "I was nervous, but also excited because I knew Mark would bring nothing but positivity," he says. "We exchanged family pictures and within 20 minutes we were jamming on acoustic guitars and talking about new songs."

He adds, "At that meeting we were collectively saying, ‘Hey man, I’m sorry if I hurt you or my choices did anything to cause you any pain. I have nothing but love and forgiveness for you and I hope you can forgive me. It’s all part of the process of reflection and not looking back at the six months out of 10 years that were trying."

They soon reunited with drummer Scott Phillips and bassist Brian Marshall and already have six demos prepared for the new album, tentatively titled "Full Circle."

"It’s a favorite for all of us," Stapp tells Rolling Stone about the album title. "It really defines and articulates, melody-wise and lyrically, what’s happened with us. We’ve come full circle and it’s a great place to be. The goal is [to] release the first single before the tour and have the album come out during the tour or right after." As for who’s producing it, the band is currently talking to several big-names. "We’re reached out to Brendan O’Brien, Mutt Lange, Bob Rock, Steve Lillywhite and six or seven more," Stapp says. "We want to put ourselves around the best and have them bring out the best in us and challenge us as artists."

Good news for Creed fans, but bad news for anyone waiting for Stapp’s second solo album. "I’m not really thinking about that right now," he says. "It would be irresponsible for me to think about anything but Creed. This band is my first love and a first love that’s stood the test of time. It’s not hard to step away from any kind of personal agenda when you are totally fulfilled."

The band’s reunion tour kicks off on August 6 in Pittsburgh, PA and will conclude in Nashville, TN on October 14.

The tour dates are:

Wikipedia reported this months ago. Their new site has been up since late March.

Maybe Stapp has cleaned up his act. Tremonti is a great guitarist, and even though Scott Stapp rips off Eddie Vedder, it takes an awful lot of talent to do it as well as he does. I have a feeling that a lot of the reason people hated Creed was because of Stapp's douchey behavior.

Just read their lyrics. They were a religious band. Most of their songs were about God and religion. It's pretty obvious.

Higher was about heaven... With Arms Wide Open made references to praying and stuff...

Plus (yes I have a couple Creed albums.. I used to like them) they had a song about God that was called "Faceless Man". lolol

They are pretty much Christian Rock. Scott's writing is pretty much all about Jesus and Heaven and other related issues.

The running joke among Christians was that Creed's name should've been Greed, because they chose a secular band name so they could see mainstream success.


You CAN see how that sentence makes no sense, right Alex? ^^^

Knowing anything about the band would dictate that you're aware of their preachiness. Their entire image and public perception is (rightly) that of a cheesy Christ-rock band from the 90's.

Most of the bands on their record label are too. Only, most of those other bands are better. They still suck, but they're more talented than friggin' Creed. I mean, really. Creed? Creed?

Jesus Wilbur Christ.

Oh, wait, you're 19. So you were like 8 when they were popular. Sorry, don't mean to sound like a dick. It's just that, um, in 1998/1999? Creed were a disease. They were exactly what's wrong with the radio.

Well yeah like Human Clay was out in 1999, but they were popular into the 2000's. Didn't Weathered come out in like 2001, and get popular in 2002 into 2003? (I hate myself for knowing the album names.)


frontman Scott Stapp was lambasted by publications like Rolling Stone for being "irony-deficient, Jesus-haired and often shirtless in a way that reminded people of the guy from Lord of the Dance." Based on their frequently spiritual lyrics, some observers deemed Creed part of a new breed of alternative-styled Christian bands, an affiliation that Creed actively tried to downplay.

OH SHIT! I forgot about this!!!!:

During the summer of 2000, bassist Brian Marshall made headlines for criticizing Pearl Jam's recent songwriting style during a radio interview

lololol.


Scott Stapp went on to issue a solo record, 2005's The Great Divide, which included a collection of rock songs inspired by Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ.

More lolololol!!!!

That was hilarious!!!

No, someone made a comment that someone else was like 8 years old when Creed was popular and was too young to know the bands popular, so I just made that comment because I was really young when I started listening to bands like Offspring and Korn

I greatly agree about Durst/LB. I think Creed wouldn't be SO bad without Stapp (Tremonti's other band is basically Creed minus Stapp, and they're nothing special, but at least not gut wrenching). I watched this song earlier http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6O2Gbfm7Xo&feature=PlayList&p=3793C353EDA07F8A&index=11&playnext=2&playnext_from=PL and Tremonti's solo in it is quite good, I think. Definitely the most interesting part of an otherwise fairly mediocre song.

They aren't a religious band. Stapp just referenced religious topics because his family crammed it into him when he was younger (he grew up in a christian family) but he greatly resented them for forcing him to believe in God...

Higher was NOT about heaven. Stapp did and interview where he said the song was about Lucid dreaming, and he wrote it about his past experiences with drugs, acid in particular.

With Arms Wide Open referenced praying, but that doesn't mean they are christian... because they aren't AT ALL. It only referenced praying to get the point across that he didn't want his son to end up like him.

And Faceless Man is about Satan not God. Satan is the "Faceless Man." Read the lyrics... that one is obvious.

Sorry for the rant... I was just reading through the forums and wanted to correct this misconception.
