Mastiff Debut “Midnight Creeper” Music Video


Mastiff‘s new track “Midnight Creeper” and its accompanying music video saw a release online today, September 03rd. The song emerges a week ahead of the release of the band’s new album “Leave Me The Ashes Of The Earth“, which eOne Music have slated for a September 10th release.

The band stated of this latest single:

“Our mindset when writing ‘Midnight Creeper‘ was something along the lines of, ‘what if Will Haven was a grindcore band?,’ and we’re pretty happy with the results. The song originally had a whole extra part at the end, but after months of sitting on the song during the first lockdown in 2020, we revisited it and realized it was totally not needed, and that the grind part that ends the song now was a far more fitting way to disorient and bamboozle people.”

“Lyrically, ‘Midnight Creeper’ is one of the more personal and angry tracks on Leave Me… and deals pretty directly with a person who was very close to the band and that we all considered a friend, who was unceremoniously outed as a predator and a liar. The feeling of disgust and betrayal within our musical community hung over us for a long time and we wanted to make a clear statement that we stand behind victims, we abhor abusers, and that consent is everything. That we picked one of our most brutal songs to convey that message seemed fitting, really.”
