Stapp is back
Creed front man Scott Stapp is taking advantage of being away from the band with a solo album out early next month … I know … we’re all dripping with anticipation. The singer has released a lyric video for the first single from the attempt titled "Slow Suicide". The tune comes in with a standard shrilling guitar riff then the signature marbles-in-the-mouth voice of Stabb burst onto the scene with the tag line “I’m committing slow suicide”. The lyric video also shows a bunch of pics of Stapp on stage, off stage, with long hair and short hair. The album Proof of Life comes out Nov. 5th.
