Cradle Of Filth Planning To Record New Album In Early 2020

During a recent interview with Robb’s MetalWorks, Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth talked a bit about the band’s upcoming plans. According to him, the group are planning to hit the studio for their new album early next year.

Filth said the following when asked about the band’s next steps:

“We’re going to be re-releasing ‘Cruelty [And The Beast]’ this year — remixed and remastered, totally from the original tapes. It took us quite a lengthy amount of time. [We] had some legal issues for a bit, so it would have been on the 20th anniversary, which was last year, but it’s going to be at some point this year via Sony. We’ve got a live album in the works, and we’re also currently writing toward a successor to ‘Cryptioriana’… Obviously, it’s a little bit difficult on the road, but I think we’ve got the beginnings of about four [or] five tracks. Those all sound really good. The studio is destined for early next year, with a release date either before or after the summer, depending on the live album and the reissue of ‘Cruelty’. We’re going to experiment a little bit, see what happens really. At the moment, it’s in its infancy… The autumn will see us fine tune the stuff and finish writing.”

Dani Filth On Upcoming Cradle Of Filth Album: “It’s Just A Step Up From The Last Record, But We’re Trying To Explore New Horizons As Well”

During a recent appearance on the Rocknroll Beer Guy podcast, Dani Filth offered a bit of an update on the new Cradle Of Filth album. According to him, the material is “just a step up from the last record, but [they are] trying to explore new horizons as well.”

Filth said the following:

“We’ll be writing and compiling new stuff on the road [this year]. We’re hoping to get into the studio around November or December. Time of release, possibly August of next year, maybe sooner.”

He also added the following about the musical direction:

“It’s sounding great. It’s just a step up from the last record, but we’re trying to explore new horizons as well — mix some things up a little bit. It’s great. What I’ve heard is awesome. I’m starting to assemble some ideas, string things together. Hopefully being on the road will bring us a lot closer together and [we’ll be able to] do stuff in soundcheck etcetera.

He continued:

“It’s decidedly CRADLE OF FILTH, and it’s the best CRADLE OF FILTH that we can muster. The last few records, a lot of people said, ‘Wow, this is a return to the olden glory days,’ whatever. I think that myself, but I don’t know if that reflects everybody’s opinions. But, yeah, now I’m not gonna say it’s darker and heavier. I mean, we’ve done that, and there’s only so far you can go forward with that. We’re just gonna experiment a little bit. It’s hard to really say, ’cause, at the moment, everything’s just a bit fledgling and embryonic.”

He also added the following when asked if everybody in the band contributes to the songwriting process:

“Music is collaborative. In fact, I only really add opinions. And if I have something pressing in my mind, like a tune, then I suggest it. But generally, the band write the stuff. Then we come together and I say what I like and don’t like. It’s a very involved process, but it involves everybody — that’s the good thing. And then we go backward and forward, and the songs gradually take shape. For example, on the last record, ‘Achingly Beautiful’ was a track that was destined for the previous album. It was undeveloped. But then I said to everybody, ‘This is such a great song,’ and I resubmitted it and we rewrote it. It’s a perfect example of the way we work together. If it had been shit, then everybody would have said, ‘No. This is shit, mate.’ So it’s a democracy rather than the work of a tyrant.”

Cradle Of Filth Planning To Record New Album This Fall

Cradle Of Filth are planning to hit the studio this fall to record their new album. The band confirmed the news in a recent Instagram post, which also includes a 2018 recap and a list of other things they have planned for 2019.

The group said the following:

“This year has been an extraordinary step on the road to salvation, albeit some eighty shows later.

We have traversed the globe on the Cryptoriana world tour, firstly in Europe with our good friends @moonspellofficial in support and sharing our travelling bomb-site with us, then In the U.S with @jinjer_official and @uncuredband, before setting our sights on penetrating Asia and Australia.

We’ve also performed in South America, Russia, the Baltic states and Israel too.

There have been some great Summer festivals and then some great Winter ones too, with some amazing times spent abroad in the company of some truly amazing people.

We also changed management companies and now reside snugly with @theoraclemgmt, which is run by Dez and Anahstasia Fafara, nestling alongside bands like @mrmotherfucker13, @the69eyesofficial, @combichrist and @devildriver, wiith the first few months of management seeing them make some necessary and highly significant improvements.

So a very successful period for the band, but it doesn’t stop there as next year promises to be even more productive/spectacular.

A massive new merchandising line; A duo of Cradle beers; A return to big theatrical stage production values live; A potential Cradle make-up line; A full second leg of the Cryptoriana world tour in the U.S. and Canada; Convention appearances; appearances; the Cruelty And The Beast remixed and remistressed release; Exclusive themed shows… With South America; Russia and not forgetting a packed Summer run of festivals across Europe also to transpire.

And that’s not to mention the new album we’re currently working on at the present, with Autumn being earmarked for entering the sordid depths of the recording studio.

So, very exciting times await!

Therefore we, as a band, wish everyone a fantastically FILTHY new year and hope it brings everything you could possibly desire…

Until we see you next,
All the be(a)st…
Cradle Of Filth, NYE 2018 e.h
