Creeper Have Disappeared From The Face Of The Earth

Uh...



Creeper have apparently gone missing over the weekend. According to posts on the band's social media and this story in the Southern Daily Echo, they disappeared on the way home from Leeds Festival.

The band's social media has pretty much been stripped bare, but pinned to the top of their Facebook is a poster appealing for information on the whereabouts of James Scythe, who went missing from Southampton's Dolphin Hotel late last year.

The contact number is listed as 023-8000-0376, and when called, a message says, "On the 2nd of October 2016, we'll die holding hands." Then, a link to whereisjamesscythe.co.uk is texted to your phone by the same number.

So there's that.

The website whereisjamescythe.co.uk holds a whole host of information about James' disappearance - including the fact that his wife died in a car crash in which he sustained injuries to his left hand, and that he used to work for the British Government.

The site also contains photos from Room 309 (where he disappeared from), and this video.



There's also evidence from the room that points towards the strangesouthampton.club website, which has details on the legends of The Callous Heart and The Stranger (also the title of Creeper's most recent EPs) and alleged paranormal activity in Creeper's hometown of Southampton.

It also contains a flyer advertising Southampton's Stranger Walk - a ghost tour of the city - but the map shows a location over 100 miles away in Solihull, which happens to be equidistant from Bramham Park (where Leeds Festival is held) and Creeper's hometown of Southampton.

Does this mean anything? Probably not, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Just today, a close-up of an evidence bag from James Scythe's room has been posted on the band's socials.


So we're still none the wiser, really. COME BACK, CREEPER.
