p>Shortly after finishing their album last year, Creeps frontman Skottie Lobotomy was dwelling on the idea of a "dystopian future world" and wrote several songs which the band decided to record immediately and release on an EP. The result is less of The Creeps' typical stab-happy lyrics, but more of a punk record that seems to echo in volatile political and economic times, especially the resounding "Are we getting by? Sure, I guess we're getting by, but are we getting by?" of opener "On and On." The songwriting and production are tight. It's a neat little detour for the band and this sense of foreboding feels all too premonitory.
