Creed to return with new album and tour


Fifteen years ago, Creed stormed on to the charts with the release of its debut album, ‘My Own Prison.’ Several hits and a Grammy award later, some may be wondering: Where is the rock band now? It turns out, right where it wants to be: In the studio working on new material and preparing for a US tour. Creed frontman Scott Stapp is ready to tell his story in more ways than one. Five songs are already written for the next Creed effort, the follow-up to 2009’s ‘Full Circle.’ And this time, Creed is looking to its fans for guidance. “They’ve (fans) really pushed us lovingly in a direction to reconnect with our first two records and do it with them,” Stapp said.
The 38-year-old rocker hopes to release the new Creed album by the end of 2012. Fans will likely get to hear some of the new material once Stapp, guitarist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips hit the road on April 13 in Chicago. A new album and tour aren’t the only projects Stapp is focused on these days. Also in the works is a memoir, which Stapp describes as a “first-hand narrative of the journey from my roots-from the day I was born to the present.” Due in October 2012, the book will chronicle everything from Stapp’s childhood and the formation of Creed, to song-writing, and even Internet bullying.
For a time, you couldn’t escape Creed’s Grammy-winning song, 2000’s ‘With Arms Wide Open.’ It ruled the radio waves. Later, the band’s third studio album, 2001’s ‘Weathered,’ tied ‘The Beatles Anthology,’ for the most consecutive weeks at Number One on Billboard’s Top 200 chart. In all, Creed has sold an estimated 35 million albums worldwide.
