Creeper are missing and who is James Scythe?

Yesterday after their Leeds Festival appearances, something started to go wrong on the Creeper social media accounts. The band’s Twitter account started posting photos of white noise, which were promptly deleted before the band claimed they were being hacked. All of their personal Facebooks ,Twitters and Instagrams have all been deactivated as had the three band pages (though the latter have been restored since, posting more clues). The name James Scythe has also appeared…

When things start getting spooky, Creeper fans call 02380000376: the number on a shirt from the beginning of 2016 that has seemed to give some clues as to what’s going on. When this happened last night though, the cult didn’t get what they were expecting.

The call led to hearing a Russian-sounding lullaby, and when the call ended the number texted a link to which details the missing of James Scythe, a paranormal detective. This of course led to the next step of the journey and the hunt ensued from there.

This morning however, while the text remained after the call, the number no longer played a lullaby but instead played a message stating “on the 2nd of October 2016, we will die holding hands” leading further fan speculation as to what will happen on that date (the band are scheduled to be in America on tour).

In addition, a further two websites have surfaced in the shape of which details further the character of The Stranger and which contains 19 episodes of a podcast that have all been reduced to a 10 second white noise and one lasting 20 minutes that details The Stranger and the Callous Heart.

Here’s what we know so far:
