Dani Filth said the following about the new record:

“The album is about existentialism, existential dread and fear of the unknown. The concept wasn’t created by the pandemic. We’d written it long before that began, but the pandemic is the tip of the cotton-bud as far as the way the world is headed, you know? I guess the title, ‘Existence Is Futile,’ does sound a little morbid.

But again, it’s more about recognizing that truth and saying that everything is permitted because nothing really matters, which mimics the occultist Aleister Crowley’s maxim. We all know we’re going to die, so we might as well indulge life while we possess it. The final track on the album – ‘Us, Dark, Invincible‘ – really drives that point home. Also, the artwork for this record was created by the Latvian visionary Arthur Berzinsh, who also dressed the last two albums, and that reeks of the exceedingly beautiful yet apocalyptic too.”

As previously reported, “Existence Is Futile” will be the band’s first album with new keyboardist/vocalist Anabelle Iratni (Devilment, Veile). It’s also worth noting that actor Doug Bradley (“Hellraiser”, etc.) guests on “Suffer Our Dominion” and the bonus track “Sisters Of The Mist.“
