American Noir is the sixth extended play (EP) by English rock band Creeper. Written and recorded with producer Xandy Barry during sessions for the group's second studio album Sex, Death & the Infinite Void, it was released on 30 July 2021 by Roadrunner Records. The EP is the band's first release since the departures of guitarist Oliver Burdett and drummer Dan Bratton, and the first since Bratton's replacement Jake Fogarty (although he is not featured as a performer). Written by vocalist Will Gould, guitarist Ian Miles and keyboardist Hannah Greenwood with Barry, American Noir serves as an "epilogue" to the story told on Sex, Death & the Infinite Void, which ends with the death of protagonist Roe. The EP features five songs and three interludes, with lead or co-lead vocals on three tracks contributed by Greenwood, who plays the role of Roe's lover Annabelle. "Midnight" and "America at Night" were issued as singles prior to the EP's release. American Noir received widely positive reviews from critics. Many commentators praised the EP for its theatrical, dramatic songwriting, which they claimed built strongly on the story of Sex, Death & the Infinite Void. Some reviews went as far as to dub the EP better than the album overall, while multiple writers praised the increased vocal contributions of Greenwood. American Noir debuted at number 13 on the UK Albums Chart and number 1 on the UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart..
