Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti discussed the surprising demographic makeup of the band's current fanbase in a recent interview.

For years, Creed and its post-grunge counterparts were often mercilessly mocked by a wide array of tastemakers. But that apparently didn't stop younger listeners from getting into the band after it broke up in 2004.

The band broke up in 2004 after achieving massive commercial success.

Tremonti spoke about the trend in a recent interview with the YouTuber Belgian Jasper, which was transcribed by Blabbermouth.

"When the tour went on sale, we get to see all the ages of people buying the tickets and if it’s male, female or whatnot," the guitarist said.

"We were blown away to see that the biggest fanbase buying the tickets are between 25 and 35 years old. So a lot of these people were too young to be around when Creed was touring back in the day. So it’s good to see a whole new generation of Creed fans out there."

Tremonti noted that Creed's music never completely disappeared from the zeitgeist. "A bunch of athletes have been using [a Creed] song as kind of their go-to-battle kind of music."

That's why the band has had a comeback tour in the works for years.

"To be honest, we've been planning stuff and talking since before COVID about when the timing would be right," the guitarist said. "When COVID hit, it kind of derailed things."

'We were blown away to see that the biggest fanbase buying the tickets are between 25 and 35 years old,' the guitarist said.

Earlier this month, Tremonti also spoke to the New Jersey radio station 105.5 WDHA about Creed's popularity.

"We appreciate it, because ever since Creed broke up for the first time, we took that break, you realize how well we had it, as far as the radio play and the ticket sales and all that stuff," he said in the interview also transcribed by Blabbermouth.

He noted that it's been much harder to make money to make money with Alter Bridge, which is mostly made up of Creed alumni, and his solo project Tremonti.
