Creed is an American post-grunge band from Tallahassee, Florida that became popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The band disbanded in 2004 after three multi-platinum albums, selling an estimated 35 million records worldwide, including 26 million records in the United States alone. Though the three instrumental members of the band, and later Scott Stapp, had insisted that Creed was in their past, rumors began circulating in late 2008 that Creed was planning a reunion, though these were originally dismissed until April 27, 2009. On this date, after months of speculation, Creed announced that they had reformed via their official website, which confirmed that plans to record a new album titled Full Circle were underway and was updated with dates for a 2009 reunion tour. The band is currently on tour in support of the new album, which will be released on October 27.
