The band are releasing the song in partnership with The Hot Topic Foundation, to further their support of non-profit music, art, LGBTQ+ and mental health organisations for youth and teens.

‘Radiohead’s Creep is a legendary song that has been loved for over 30 years’, shares vocalist Lee Jennings. ‘The track embodies what The Funeral Portrait stands for and is the perfect song to represent our fans, The Coffin Crew. It’s a song for the weirdos and the people who feel like they just don’t fit in.’

Jennings adds: ‘We have teamed up with The Hot Topic Foundation, a foundation that we hold close to our hearts, to release this cover. They work hand in hand with incredible organizations like Mental Health America and The Trevor Project. The Coffin Crew community believes in the many things that they stand for and are honoured to be a part of their support.’

Lauded as one of Alternative Press’ ‘100 Bands You Need to Know’, The Funeral Portrait have relentlessly toured, opening for acts including Shinedown, Underoath, Skillet, From Ashes To New, Starsetand Pvris as well as being featured on the main stage at Inkcarceration Festival.

The band’s intention for their music is to represent ‘outcasts’ from all walks of life – the weird, the misunderstood, the marginalised – and offer a safe and accepting community.
