The Creepshow is a Psychobilly band from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. The band formed in 2005 when the four members got together with the purpose of starting a hellbilly band. The Creepshow writes the majority of their songs about Horror Films, with the music fitting the horror punk genre - hence hellbilly.
The band has its roots in the 905 music scene with most members having been in various garage bands before The Creepshow. McNab was the singer/guitarist for local legends Outspan . McGinty was the songwriter and trombonist for 905 ska band two-face and played trombone in Outspan as well. Matt "Pomade" Gee splits his time between The Creepshow and punk band Rehab for Quitters for which he also plays drums.
The Creepshow is known for their fast-paced songs filled with lots of backup vocals from McNab and McGinty and sing-alongs that the whole crowd can participate in. The band is also known for their exciting live shows.
After initially recording two songs for the Zombie Night in Canada Vol. 2, Stereo Dymamite founder Adam (DOOM) Sewell signed the band after hearing the band's demo in 2005. The band released their first album Sell Your Soul on Stereo Dynamite shortly after on May 2, 2006.
On Monday, March 27, 2006, Stereo Dynamite signed an exclusive distribution deal with EMI Music Canada greatly increasing the label and bands distriubtion.
After Hellcat became pregnant, the vocals and guitar duties were taken over by Hellcat's younger sister, Sarah "Sin" on a temporary basis, and then permanently. Hellcat made her final appearance with the band in their video for "The Garden".
On August 22, 2008, the band released their second album, Run For Your Life (album). The band once again recorded with Sell Your Soul recorder/producer Steve Rizun. The album was released by Stomp Records.
