First the bad news: Creed has reunited.
Now the even worse news: The tour is starting in Pittsburgh (Aug. 6), although the release does not say where.
What's your guess? Mellon Arena, Hard Rock Cafe, Rib festival. This one's a tough call.
As the release from Wind-Up states, Creed is "one of the most successful rock bands of the past decade," having sold more than 35 million albums.
But get this, the release also states, "The songwriting team of Stapp and Tremonti are considered one of the most prolific in rock history."
Would that be before or after Lennon-McCartney, Jagger-Richards, Leiber-Stoller, Gamble-Huff?
The bombastic Christian rock grunge band formed in Tallahasee, Fla. in 1995 and became the favorite band of WWE fans, enamored by singer Scott Stapp's Viking-like attributes. The band broke away from the increadingle troubled Stapp in 2004 and formed Alter Bridge, which never achieved Creed-level success
"Our career as Creed came to a very abrupt and unforeseen ending," drummer Scott Phillips said in a statement. "After reflecting on some of the greatest personal and professional moments of our lives, we've come to realize that we are still very capable of continuing that career and our friendship on a grander scale than ever before."
Stapped added, "It's rare in life to get a second chance to make a first impression and we embrace the opportunity. We all believe the BEST IS YET TO COME!"
Like maybe Creed will make an album good enough to move the band from 23 on Blender's list of the "50 Worst Acts of All Time."
