MARK TREMONTI says there’s no need to rush the CREED meeting: it will happen ‘when it makes sense to everyone’


Marc Tremonti said that a meeting of CREED will happen at a time “when it makes sense to everyone”.

Over two years ago, CREED updated sound Facebook profile with an old photo, sparking rumors about the imminent return of the multi-platinum act.

To markwho is promoting ALTER BRIDGE’s new album, “Pawns & Kings”, discussed the chances of a CREED comeback in a new interview with The Rock Experience With Mike Brunn.

Asked about the possibility of a CREED meeting, To mark said: “It’s just a matter of timing. We’re all so busy traveling the world doing our things, we just need to have the time when it makes sense. I don’t think we have to rush, because I don’t think CREED fans go anywhere. I think whenever we decide to do something, I think it will be a safe time to do it. It will be right when it makes sense to everyone. You don’t want to derail an entire album cycle by getting in on the action CREED. It just had to make sense.”

In September 2021, Tremonti Told The Rock Experience with Mike Brunn which is constantly associated with CREED – 10 years after the band completed a tour in support of their fourth album, 2009 “Full Circle” – was “certainly both a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing because I wouldn’t be sitting here talking to you right now if it wasn’t for CREED; I wouldn’t have this career, this long career,” he said. “But at the same time, all my life, I’ll be that band guy CREED, which is good and tape. Because some people liked CREEDsome people hated CREED. So no matter what I do artistically, I’ll be the guy that was in CREED that is, at times, the critics liked to sue us. So I lived in both worlds – I was in a band that sold a lot of records but suffered critical attacks, but I also had to be in a band that didn’t sell that many records but which received critical acclaim. So I could see both sides. It would be nice to have it all in one. But it’s hard.”

CREED disbanded in 2004 but reunited five years later for the “Full Circle” LP and a long tour. Stapp has since toured and recorded as a solo artist, although he suffered a drug-related nervous breakdown in 2014 and spent several years recovering from it.

In 2019, Tremonti said in an interview on Jamey Jasta‘s podcast that he was sitting on an album’s worth of material for CREED. Ask if CREED could meet again, Tremonti said: “People say, ‘Is it done? Is it over? Is there new music coming out?’ I’m sitting on a whole CREED album… When we were doing the reunion tour together, we put a lot of music together and I have really sketchy little demos of probably 13 songs. I listened to them maybe a year ago and they are good songs.”

Tremonti added: “It’s just that there’s no time. Is it good enough for me to put on the back burner everything I’ve been working on for 14 years? No. Is it good enough to maybe- be 10 years from now or seven years from now…or there’s a big resurgence happening or there’s an anniversary where everyone’s like, “We want to see CREED and the world demands it as before. I would not say no.”
