The Creepshow is a band from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. The band formed in 2005 when the four original members got together with the purpose of starting a psychobilly band. The Creepshow writes the majority of their songs about horror films.
Most of The Creepshow's current and past members have been in various garage bands before. McNab was the singer/guitarist for Outspan and Jersey. McGinty was the songwriter and trombonist for 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 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 in May 2006.
In August, 2009 Hellcat Records announced they had signed The Creepshow and would be re-releasing their second album Run for Your Life in October. This signing was the first time a Canadian band had been signed to the California-based label. The Creepshow maintained their relationship with Stomp Records in Canada.
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". In the summer of 2007, Hellcat began producing an album with her band Hellcat and the Prowl.
On October 27, 2008, the band released their second album, Run for Your Life. The band once again recorded with Sell Your Soul recorder/producer Steve Rizun. The album was released by Stomp Records and was re-released in the US on Hellcat Records in October, 2009.
The band continued to tour with Blackwood as the lead vocalist, including a tour with The Unseen and Tiger Army. In an interview with Exclaim! magazine, Blackwood said that "Downtime has been good, but it's always the same. After about two weeks we all get that itch. And after three weeks our pockets are empty and we're like 'Okay, we need to go back on tour, I am going crazy!" 
On August 23, 2008, the band joined Anti Flag on a Canadian Tour after which they made their way back to Europe in October in support of their new album. The Creepshow played the Warped Tour in 2008 on the D-Tox/Union stage in Montreal.
On February 26, 2010, the band performed in the Australian alternative festival, Soundwave, on one of two main stages. On July 17, 2010, the band performed at the Hot Rod Hootenanny in Niagara Falls, Ontario. On October 25, the band performed in Prague, Czech Republic at the club Cross. On December 12, 2010, the band played alongside Random Hand, The Skints, The Hydropaths, Acid Drop and Mouthwash for the Slam Dunk punk/ska all dayer at the Cockpit in Leeds, England. Following a tour of Europe, they regrouped to begin material for their fourth album.
In January 2012, Sarah Blackwood guested with fellow Burlington, Ontario, band Walk off the Earth on a cover of Gotye's song Somebody That I Used To Know. The resulting video on YouTube went viral, gathering over 127 million views in four months and received positive responses from both Gotye and his co-singer on the song, Kimbra. On February 2012, the music industry publication Crazed Hits reported that the band had signed a recording contract with Columbia Records.
The Creepshow had announced a tour of Europe and North America for the late summer - including dates in the United Kingdom in August. However, Walk Off The Earth soon announced a tour of their own, and on July 16, Blackwood uploaded a farewell video to her YouTube page, announcing she was leaving The Creepshow. Blackwood went on to join Walk Off The Earth on a permanent basis, starting with their Autumn tour and EP, R.E.V.O.
On July 16, 2012, the same day that Sarah Blackwood uploaded her YouTube video, the band released a statement on their Facebook page, announcing her departure and successor in one fell swoop. They said:
Kenda's first dates with The Creepshow were Hamilton on Friday 27 July 2012 and Toronto the following day. The band then played four dates in Germany, before embarking upon a UK tour in August. In September, they played across North America, including some support slots with Dropkick Murphys. In October and November, they performed a headline tour of Canada, with support coming from The Fundamentals and The Hellbound Hepcats. On New Year's Eve, 2012, they supported NOFX in Montreal.
On January 7, 2013, the band announced via their Facebook page that they were recording demos for their new album in Toronto.
They released single Sinners & Saints on July 16, 2013 via digital download and limited edition 7" brown coloured vinyl.
The album, titled Life After Death, was released on October 21, 2013.
The band continued to tour into their tenth anniversary year, including dates in the UK in 2015. They headlined the Arena at Rebellion Festival 2015 on Sunday 9 August.
