Creed is an American rock band that formed in 1994 in Tallahassee, Florida. Creed (band)_sentence_0

For the majority of its existence, the band consisted of lead vocalist Scott Stapp, guitarist and vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips. Creed (band)_sentence_1

Creed released two studio albums, My Own Prison in 1997 and Human Clay in 1999, before Marshall left the band in 2000. Creed (band)_sentence_2

The band's third album, Weathered, was released in 2001, with Tremonti handling bass guitar. Creed (band)_sentence_3

Creed disbanded in 2004; Stapp pursued a solo career while Tremonti, Marshall, and Phillips went on to found the band Alter Bridge with Myles Kennedy in 2004. Creed (band)_sentence_4

In 2009, after months of speculation, Creed reunited for a fourth album, Full Circle, and actively toured until 2012. Creed (band)_sentence_5

Since then, Creed has been on hiatus while the instrumental members have remained active with Alter Bridge; Stapp has continued his solo career and joined the band Art of Anarchy in 2016. Creed (band)_sentence_6

Tremonti also formed his own band, Tremonti, in 2011. Creed (band)_sentence_7

Creed is often recognized as one of the prominent acts of the post-grunge movement that began in the mid-1990s. Creed (band)_sentence_8

Becoming popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Creed released three consecutive multi-platinum albums, with their album Human Clay being certified diamond. Creed (band)_sentence_9

Creed has sold over 28 million records in the United States, has sold over 53 million albums worldwide, and was the ninth best-selling artist of the 2000s. Creed (band)_sentence_10

However, Creed has been negatively received by some critics and listeners, with the band having been listed by readers of Rolling Stone magazine as the worst artist of the 1990s. Creed (band)_sentence_11

History Creed (band)_section_0

Early years (1994–1996) Creed (band)_section_1

Creed's origins lie in 1994 in Tallahassee, Florida. Creed (band)_sentence_12

Founding members vocalist Scott Stapp and guitarist Mark Tremonti had been classmates in high school and friends at Florida State University. Creed (band)_sentence_13

Upon reuniting, Stapp and Tremonti realized that they had a mutual love for writing music and performing. Creed (band)_sentence_14

After multiple discussions and times spent writing songs, several of which addressed themes of Christian theology and spirituality due to Stapp's religious background as the stepson of a Pentecostal minister, the duo held auditions which led to the recruitment of bassist Brian Marshall, drummer Scott Phillips, and rhythm guitarist Brian Brasher to complete the quintet. Creed (band)_sentence_15

This five-piece line-up lasted through 1994, though Brasher left the band in 1995. Creed (band)_sentence_16

Creed then decided to remain as a four-piece band. Creed (band)_sentence_17

The four musicians had already written and collaborated on four of the songs that would go on to become tracks on Creed's chart-topping debut album, My Own Prison. Creed (band)_sentence_18

The band found local success and started to play shows in bars and small venues throughout Tallahassee. Creed (band)_sentence_19

Stapp wrote in 2012 that Creed first performed as "Naked Toddler" at Yianni's in Tallahassee; the name was picked up by Tremonti from a headline in that day's newspaper, but the reaction that night to the name was negative. Creed (band)_sentence_20

The group was trying to find inspiration for a better name when Marshall said he had been in a band called Mattox Creed. Creed (band)_sentence_21

Stapp latched onto the Creed part, and the band agreed. Creed (band)_sentence_22

My Own Prison and rise to fame (1997–1998) Creed (band)_section_2

Wanting "a real show at a club", they managed to persuade the owner of a bar in Tallahassee to book them by claiming that they could guarantee an audience of 200 people. Creed (band)_sentence_23

Owner and manager Jeff Hanson later told HitQuarters that the band had played mostly cover versions, but two original songs stood out and impressed the manager so much that he promptly signed them to his management and promotions company and set about developing their act. Creed (band)_sentence_24

For their first recordings he matched the band up with John Kurzweg, a producer and friend of Hanson's who he felt was an appropriate fit. Creed (band)_sentence_25

Together they recorded their debut album for $6,000, which was funded by Hanson. Creed (band)_sentence_26

The album, titled My Own Prison, was initially self-released on their own label, Blue Collar Records, selling 6,000 copies throughout the state of Florida. Creed (band)_sentence_27

My Own Prison had been circulating around the music industry for a while when, in May 1997, Diana Meltzer from Wind-Up Records heard the album for the first time and decided almost immediately that she wanted to sign them to the label, which had recently dropped Baboon over the latter's reluctance to alter their image and sound to suit the label's demands. Creed (band)_sentence_28

Meltzer later said that she heard "an arena band". Creed (band)_sentence_29

Within the same week, Meltzer, together with Wind-up president Steve Lerner, CEO Alan Meltzer, and A&R representative Joel Mark, flew to Tallahassee to see Creed perform live and decide for certain whether to offer them a contract. Creed (band)_sentence_30

"Seeing the energy in the room when Scott Stapp stepped up to the mic, and hearing his powerful voice fill the room, alongside Mark Tremonti's now legendary guitar riffs and that big Creed anthemic rock sound, was all I needed," she told HitQuarters. Creed (band)_sentence_31

According to Tremonti in his "Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction" video, Creed had been rejected by Arctic and Cherry Universal Records before Wind-Up flew down to sign them. Creed (band)_sentence_32

The band has been signed with Wind-Up records ever since. Creed (band)_sentence_33

Stapp and Marshall originally signed the contract in blood; causing it to need to be reprinted. Creed (band)_sentence_34

My Own Prison was remixed, given a more radio-friendly sound, and re-released by Wind-up Records in 1997. Creed (band)_sentence_35

Four singles were released from the album: "My Own Prison", "Torn", "What's This Life For", and "One". Creed (band)_sentence_36

Each of these songs reached No. Creed (band)_sentence_37

1 on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, making Creed the first band to accomplish such a feat with a debut album. Creed (band)_sentence_38

With little MTV exposure, media coverage, or label support, My Own Prison sold extremely well, moving over six million copies and going six times platinum. Creed (band)_sentence_39

Creed continued to top year-end charts and was recognized as the Rock Artist of the Year at the 1998 Billboard Music Awards. Creed (band)_sentence_40

My Own Prison was also the highest-selling heavy music record of 1998 on Nielsen SoundScan's Hard Music chart. Creed (band)_sentence_41

The band's hit song "My Own Prison" was also featured as a live performance on the charity album Live in the X Lounge in 1998. Creed (band)_sentence_42

The band covered Alice Cooper's song "I'm Eighteen" for The Faculty soundtrack in 1998. Creed (band)_sentence_43

Critical reception toward My Own Prison was mostly favorable. Creed (band)_sentence_44

Stephen Thomas Erlewine from AllMusic gave it four out of five stars and said that Creed "work well within their chicken tender dinner" despite "basically [falling] into the category of post-Seattle bands who temper their grunge with a dose of Live earnestness." Creed (band)_sentence_45

The album lyrically deals with themes of questioning and struggling with faith and spirituality. Creed (band)_sentence_46

Human Clay and Marshall's departure (1999–2000) Creed (band)_section_3

With money made from My Own Prison, the band started to write for their second album, Human Clay. Creed (band)_sentence_47

The album's first single, "Higher", spent a record-breaking 17 weeks on the top of the rock radio charts. Creed (band)_sentence_48

In 2009, "Higher" was ranked as the 95th greatest hard rock song of all time by VH1. Creed (band)_sentence_49

The album was released in 1999, when My Own Prison was still doing reasonably well. Creed (band)_sentence_50

However, Human Clay was an instant and overwhelming success debuting at No. Creed (band)_sentence_51

1 on the Billboard 200 and selling over ten million copies over the next two years, allowing it to become one of the few rock albums to be certified diamond by the RIAA. Creed (band)_sentence_52

The album was the band's first to hit No. Creed (band)_sentence_53

1 in the U.S., where it debuted with first week sales of 315,000, and stayed on top for two weeks. Creed (band)_sentence_54

After the album's release, three follow-up singles were released in 2000: "What If", "With Arms Wide Open", and "Are You Ready?". Creed (band)_sentence_55

The first three of those topped radio charts, giving Creed a total of seven chart-topping singles. Creed (band)_sentence_56

The band would later go on to win their first, and to date only, Grammy Award for "With Arms Wide Open" for Best Rock Song in 2001. Creed (band)_sentence_57

Reviews for Human Clay were largely positive. Creed (band)_sentence_58

Stephen Thomas Erlewine from AllMusic said that the record "does make it clear that there is an audience for post-grunge hard rock, as long as it's delivered without pretension and as long as it meets the audience's desire for straight-ahead, hard-hitting music." Creed (band)_sentence_59

The lyrical content of Human Clay is a slight departure from that of My Own Prison, touching on subjects such as fatherhood ("With Arms Wide Open") and lucid dreaming ("Higher"), as well as darker, more violent themes such as sexual abuse ("Wash Away Those Years") and hostility ("What If"). Creed (band)_sentence_60

During the summer of 2000, bassist Brian Marshall began a spiral into alcoholism. Creed (band)_sentence_61

The band had a meeting with management to discuss Marshall's future. Creed (band)_sentence_62

Stapp and Tremonti supported the idea of Marshall going to rehab and attempted to talk Marshall into going, but he refused. Creed (band)_sentence_63

Initially, the public thought Marshall was let go because he criticized Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder in a radio interview with KNDD in June 2000, claiming that Scott Stapp is a better songwriter, and criticized Pearl Jam's recent albums for "having songs without hooks." Creed (band)_sentence_64

Stapp later distanced the rest of the band from Marshall's comments and stated, "Yes, we get tired of the PJ question, but there is no excuse for the arrogance and stupidity [of Marshall]. Creed (band)_sentence_65

I ask you all not to judge Creed as a band, because the statements made were not the band's feelings, they were Brian's. Creed (band)_sentence_66

I'm sorry if Brian offended anyone, and he has already apologized for his comments." Creed (band)_sentence_67

Although it was reported that Marshall left Creed "on friendly terms", he did not. Creed (band)_sentence_68

Tremonti and Stapp were concerned for Marshall and their collective friendships, but soon after the controversy, Marshall formed a new band called Grand Luxx with his old Mattox Creed bandmates. Creed (band)_sentence_69

Stapp stated that Marshall's leaving was his choice and was unrelated to the Pearl Jam comments. Creed (band)_sentence_70

Brett Hestla, from the band Virgos Merlot, replaced Marshall. Creed (band)_sentence_71

Weathered and break-up (2001–2004) Creed (band)_section_4

Creed worked on their third album for most of 2001, with Tremonti choosing to play bass on the record to "[preserve] the band's initial core," although Hestla remained in Creed's touring lineup. Creed (band)_sentence_72

Weathered was released on November 20, 2001. Creed (band)_sentence_73

Six singles were released from the album: "My Sacrifice" (which earned the band a nomination for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal in 2003), "Bullets", "One Last Breath", "Hide", "Don't Stop Dancing", and "Weathered". Creed (band)_sentence_74

The album was a commercial bestseller and was certified platinum six times over and debuted at No. Creed (band)_sentence_75

1 on the Billboard Top 200. Creed (band)_sentence_76

It remained at that spot for eight weeks, a record which Creed notably shares with The Beatles. Creed (band)_sentence_77

The tour to promote Weathered was met with considerable controversy; it was delayed in April 2002 when Stapp suffered a concussion and vertebrae damage after being involved in a car crash. Creed (band)_sentence_78

As a result, in addition to his growing addiction to alcohol, he became addicted to pain medication. Creed (band)_sentence_79

This, along with other events, led to a considerably controversial concert on December 29, 2002 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois, which ultimately led to the band's disunion. Creed (band)_sentence_80

Four disappointed concertgoers filed a lawsuit against the band, claiming that Scott Stapp "was so intoxicated and/or medicated that he was unable to sing the lyrics of a single Creed song." Creed (band)_sentence_81

Creed later issued an apology on Stapp's behalf, although Stapp would later deny the claims. Creed (band)_sentence_82

Ultimately, the case was dismissed. Creed (band)_sentence_83

Stapp later confirmed that he was intoxicated during the concert, but asserted that he was not incoherent. Creed (band)_sentence_84

After remaining inactive for over a year, it was announced in June 2004 that Creed had disbanded. Creed (band)_sentence_85

Tremonti cited tensions between Stapp and the rest of the band as the reasoning. Creed (band)_sentence_86

He said that the relationship with Stapp had become so strained that the creative juices were no longer flowing. Creed (band)_sentence_87

The reality was that Stapp was in Maui battling his addiction to alcohol and drugs. Creed (band)_sentence_88

Almost simultaneous with the announcement of Creed's break-up, Stapp opted for a solo career. Creed (band)_sentence_89

On November 22, 2004, Wind-up Records released Creed's Greatest Hits album. Creed (band)_sentence_90

Stapp released his debut solo album The Great Divide in 2005. Creed (band)_sentence_91

Tremonti and Phillips reunited with Marshall to form a new band, Alter Bridge, in 2004 with singer Myles Kennedy, formerly of American rock band The Mayfield Four. Creed (band)_sentence_92

Reunion, Full Circle and 2012 tour (2009–2012) Creed (band)_section_5

While Tremonti referred to Creed as "officially in our past" in 2006, years later, on April 27, 2009, Creed's website announced that the band had reunited for a new tour and plans for a new album. Creed (band)_sentence_93

According to Tremonti, "We're all very excited to reconnect with our fans and each other after seven long years." Creed (band)_sentence_94

He later added that being in Creed again was "the last thing [he] expected." Creed (band)_sentence_95

Phillips also stated: "Our career as Creed came to a very abrupt and unforeseen ending. Creed (band)_sentence_96

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." Creed (band)_sentence_97

In an interview for People magazine, Stapp elaborated on the reunion, saying, "We never felt like we weren't together. Creed (band)_sentence_98

We're not looking at this as a reunion. Creed (band)_sentence_99

It's more of a rebirth." Creed (band)_sentence_100

In June 2009, Creed performed with Marshall on bass for the first time in eight years on Sessions@AOL, showing the band playing four of their hits. Creed (band)_sentence_101

In addition, the band performed live on Fox & Friends on June 26, 2009. Creed (band)_sentence_102

Creed's reunion tour, with touring guitarist Eric Friedman, kicked off on August 6, 2009 and concluded on October 20. Creed (band)_sentence_103

Full Circle, Creed's first album in eight years, came out on October 27, 2009. Creed (band)_sentence_104

Stapp elaborated on the title, which is also the name of a track to appear on the album: "It really defines and articulates, melody-wise and lyrically, what's happened with us. Creed (band)_sentence_105

We've come full circle and it's a great place to be." Creed (band)_sentence_106

The first single from Full Circle, "Overcome", was posted on the band's official website on August 18, 2009, the same day the radio premiere started along with its release as a digital download on August 25. Creed (band)_sentence_107

The second single, "Rain", was released to radio stations on September 23 and became available on October 6, 2009 as another digital download. Creed (band)_sentence_108

The third single, "A Thousand Faces", was released in 2010. Creed (band)_sentence_109

On September 25, 2009, Creed performed a concert in Houston, Texas that was recorded, broadcast via a live internet stream, and released on December 8, 2010, as a concert film titled Creed Live, the band's first live recording. Creed (band)_sentence_110

The performance broke four world records, including the world record for the most cameras used at a live music event (239). Creed (band)_sentence_111

The previous holder of this record was Justin Timberlake. Creed (band)_sentence_112

The performance also featured the first usage of the "big freeze" technology, popularized by the 1999 film The Matrix, in a concert environment. Creed (band)_sentence_113

Drummer Scott Phillips also confirmed that Full Circle will not be the band's final album. Creed (band)_sentence_114

The same announcement confirmed that Creed was to go on a world tour in support of Full Circle between April and September 2010, starting with an Australia/New Zealand tour, followed by South America, Europe, and North America. Creed (band)_sentence_115

The tour was called The 20-10 Tour. Creed (band)_sentence_116

Tickets for the tour were ten and twenty dollars to stand up against rising concert ticket prices. Creed (band)_sentence_117

The first 2,010 tickets purchased for every concert did not include any service fees. Creed (band)_sentence_118

Despite these efforts, not every show sold out, and critical reviews were mostly mixed. Creed (band)_sentence_119

Skillet joined the tour as main support. Creed (band)_sentence_120

Creed reconvened in late 2011 and early 2012 to begin work on a potential fifth studio album. Creed (band)_sentence_121

A tour was also announced in which the band would perform their first two albums, My Own Prison and Human Clay, from front to back over the course of two nights, with selected tracks from Weathered and Full Circle also featured. Creed (band)_sentence_122

This tour kicked off with two shows on April 12 and 13, 2012, at the Chicago Theatre in Chicago, Illinois, with the band performing My Own Prison the first night and Human Clay the second. Creed (band)_sentence_123

They also toured in South America and Indonesia. Creed (band)_sentence_124

Hiatus (2013–present) Creed (band)_section_6

The band has been on hiatus since 2012. Creed (band)_sentence_125

In October 2013, Stapp noted in an interview that extensive work was done on a fifth album throughout 2011 and 2012. Creed (band)_sentence_126

However, the project was subsequently abandoned Stapp has maintained that Creed is "still a band." Creed (band)_sentence_127

He also said that he's open to continuing to work with Creed when the time is right. Creed (band)_sentence_128

In June 2015, while promoting his second solo album Cauterize, Mark Tremonti claimed in an interview with Kerrang that he "[hasn't] been a close friend of Scott's in 9 years". Creed (band)_sentence_129

The other members did not speak to Stapp throughout the South American Tour in 2012 and plans for their fifth studio album were shelved, and they continued to work with Myles Kennedy in Alter Bridge. Creed (band)_sentence_130

In September 2015, Stapp appeared on the Dr. Creed (band)_sentence_131 Oz Show. Creed (band)_sentence_132

When asked about a Creed reunion, Stapp replied: "I can tell you what, I sure hope so. Creed (band)_sentence_133

I love the guys with all my heart and if they're watching, 'Come on guys, let's make a record.'" Creed (band)_sentence_134

He later doubled down on the statements by stating that Creed would "definitely" reunite and that he expected new material from the band within "the next two years." Creed (band)_sentence_135

When asked about Stapp's statements, Tremonti clarified that he was still busy promoting his solo albums and that Alter Bridge would record and tour in 2016, making it unlikely for him to return to Creed within Stapp's proposed timeline. Creed (band)_sentence_136

In September 2015, Stapp announced that Creed would be releasing a new "retrospective" album that November. Creed (band)_sentence_137

It would be three discs, one with hits, one with rarities, and the last with acoustic versions of hits. Creed (band)_sentence_138

The album--With Arms Wide Open: A Retrospective—was released as a Walmart-exclusive. Creed (band)_sentence_139

In 2016, Stapp joined Art of Anarchy. Creed (band)_sentence_140

His first album with the band was released in March 2017, and is titled The Madness. Creed (band)_sentence_141

Alter Bridge continues to tour and record, while Mark Tremonti released, with his solo metal band Tremonti, his third album Dust in April 2016, and his fourth album, A Dying Machine, in April 2018. Creed (band)_sentence_142

Scott Phillips has drummed in the supergroup project Projected, releasing the first album Human (2012) and the second effort the double album Ignite My Insanity (2017). Creed (band)_sentence_143

Due to the different members' band projects, touring so far is put aside, focusing more on releasing original music. Creed (band)_sentence_144

Scott Stapp has since bridged away from Art of Anarchy, having released his third solo album, The Space Between the Shadows, on July 19, 2019. Creed (band)_sentence_145

In November 2020, drummer Scott Phillips announced that a reunion was a possibility. Creed (band)_sentence_146

Musical style and influences Creed (band)_section_7

Creed has been described as alternative metal, post-grunge, nu metal, alternative rock, hard rock and grunge. Creed (band)_sentence_147

Stapp's influences include Otis Redding, Donny Hathaway, Def Leppard, U2, The Doors, and Led Zeppelin. Creed (band)_sentence_148

Guitarist Mark Tremonti's influences include thrash metal bands like Slayer, Metallica, Exodus, and Forbidden. Creed (band)_sentence_149

According to a 1999 piece in The Washington Post: Creed (band)_sentence_150

Bassist Brian Marshall, who named the band, has noted that Stapp uses spiritual imagery as a metaphor in his lyrics. Creed (band)_sentence_151

Legacy and reception Creed (band)_section_8

Creed was one of the most commercially successful rock bands of the late 1990s and early 2000s. Creed (band)_sentence_152

Their first three studio albums, My Own Prison, Human Clay, and Weathered, have all gone multi-platinum in the United States, selling 6 million, 11 million, and 6 million copies respectively. Creed (band)_sentence_153

The band also won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Song for the song "With Arms Wide Open" in 2001. Creed (band)_sentence_154

However, Creed has been negatively received by some professional critics, such as Robert Christgau. Creed (band)_sentence_155

Jonah Weiner of Slate has tried to make the case that the band was "seriously underrated"; Joe Coscarelli of Mediaite countered that "most people hate Creed's combination of overwrought power-balladry and Christian-infused testosterone." Creed (band)_sentence_156

In 2011, Billboard ranked Creed as the 18th best artist of the 2000s. Creed (band)_sentence_157

In 2013, readers of Rolling Stone Magazine voted Creed the worst band of the 1990s. Creed (band)_sentence_158
