"Ottawa band The Creeps released their sixth full-length album, Beneath the Pines, on It’s Alive Records.

This collection of tracks is considerably brighter than what they left off on. “We definitely wanted this record to sound cleaner and clearer than our previous ones,” vocalist and guitarist Skottie Lobotomy says. A lot of that had to do with working with Mike Bond at Wolf Lake Studios, which Lobotomy notes is “located in the middle of the woods in beautiful rural Québec.” It's Alive Records.
