SCOTT STAPP: New CREED Music Must Come ‘Naturally, Spontaneously’ and ‘From a Pure Place of Art and Creativity’

In a new one Cameo video for Waste some time with the average Joe, Scott Stapp was asked if there is any new music coming from CREED. He replied (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “At the moment, there is no new music coming from CREEDbut I can tell you that there have definitely been some conversations where insinuations have been made that there might be something there.

“I think the best thing to do right now is for the band to go through what we’re going through in terms of getting together and playing these shows and connecting with you all and letting the music come organically like it did back in the day. in front of CREED — just come naturally, spontaneously, from a place of pure artistry and pure creativity,” he explained. “We don’t want to force anything, and I think that’s how you get the best music from the band.”

Earlier in the month, Stapp said Rob Rush of Long Island 94.3 The shark the radio station that he and his CREED The bandmates “have not had any serious discussions or made any commitments” to work on new music. “There’s been some weird comments that, ‘Hey, you never know.’ But that’s all I can really say, is I don’t really know what’s in store for me. I know right now we’re just focused on on the cruises and the shed tour but who knows what happens if everything stays as it is with the positivity and the good vibes and everything that’s going on with the fans and showing them their love and demand CREED. So the sky’s the limit for that.”

CREEDThe first shows together in 12 years will take place as headliners “Summer of ’99” cruise, sailing from April 18-22, 2024 (the group added a second cruise the following weekend).

Last month, Stapp said SiriusXMS ‘ “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk” for the possibility of new music from CREED: “Well, yes, mark [Tremonti, CREED guitarist] and I were together a few days ago doing a secret, secret thing that I can’t share, but we were hanging out for a few days. And as we were hanging out, we just started talking about how we write [1999’s] ‘Human Clay’ [album]. And we wrote ‘Human Clay’ while traveling on the road [CREED‘s debut album, 1997’s] ‘my prison’. And we wrote it during soundchecks – 80, 90 percent of that record was written on stage during soundcheck. And you know what we would do? We’d write a song and take it hard and play it within three or four days of writing it because we didn’t have enough material on that one album alone to headline, but we were headlining the shows. So we didn’t want to fill our kit with covers, so we were writing on the fly and just playing new songs as we wrote them. And so we were talking, like, ‘You know what? It was a really good experience.’ It was good times and the two bonded. And I could see in his eye, and I was feeling it too, that I think there’s going to be some writing, and it’s going to be organic. And I think it’s going to be cool, man. If we get back to that place and that chemistry, which I think we’ll get back to as soon as we start playing these songs together and reconnecting, through our relationship, through the songs we’ve created together, I think it’s only natural . for us that during sound checks, sometimes in the dressing room, wherever and whenever we are together, these songs will be born. I mean, it happened in ‘full circle’ tournament. We wrote a bunch of songs during soundcheck on that tour, and so we’re sitting on them. But I think we’re all in a fresh space and I definitely think the creative juices will be flowing. So I definitely think there’s hope for new music.”

Pressure if you want CREED be it an ongoing thing or if it’s just a reunion to reconnect after 10 years, progeny said, “Well, it’s evolved. I’ll be honest with you — at first I was like, ‘Okay, let’s do the cruises and then see what happens from there.'” But the reception was so incredible. and, as I explained before, everything that was going viral, the tour was just presented to us and we couldn’t say no, especially with the positive interaction that was happening with the band behind the scenes. .”

He continued: “I really hope that all this positive energy and positive mindset and just the collective mindset that this is something that we finally have to appreciate and nurture and really give our fans what they want, and that actually benefits everything else we. “I’m doing the same. There have definitely been some dialogues and some conversations that this is something that goes on. But again, there’s still a bit of that “let’s see how it goes” kind of deal. So I think part of us is in the moment, the excitement of, ‘Let’s make this something we do all the time,’ and then the other half of us is, ‘Okay. Well, let’s see how it goes.’ So with both of these headspaces living together, I think this is a positive recipe. So if everybody shows up with that right attitude, I think – not to sound cliché, but it’s cliché – I think the best is still come for CREED.”
