Court Says Man Accused Of Stalking Cradle Of Filth Frontman Dani Filth’s Family Is Unfit To Plead Or Stand Trial

According to BBC, the court has ruled that 29-year-old Lucifer Lovecraft (born James Bird) is unfit to plead or stand trial after lurking around Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth’s Ipswich, UK home and shouting at Filth’s wife Toni through the letterbox back in June. When authorities arrested Lovecraft, he claimed to be Filth and he even had Filth‘s daughter’s name tattooed on his arm. Lovecraft was also accused of sending Facebook messages to Toni around the same time as well. Aside from this, the site also mentions that he was previously charged with “stalking and assaulting a woman, assaulting one man and exhibiting racially-aggravated threatening behavior to a second man.” However, prosecutors have dropped all the charges and Lovecraft, who has been described as “very ill” by his legal representative, has been sent to a psychiatric hospital. It’s worth noting the Ipswich Star previously reported that Lovecraft was diagnosed with schizophrenia, but he was released after doctors said he didn’t need anymore residential mental health treatment.

Jinjer To Miss Texas Dates Of Cradle Of Filth’s Tour, Shattered Sun Added

Jinjer will be missing the Texas dates of their North American tour with Cradle Of Filth and Uncured due to visa issues. Shattered Sun have been recruited to fill in for them.

Jinjer commented:

“BAD NEWS TEXAS …

Sadly we are forced to miss the first three shows of the Cradle Of Filth tour … although our Visas are approved we are still waiting for the final documents so we can fly out. We´d hoped we would get them today but we didn’t …

Unfortunately getting Visas for a band like us is not as easy it sounds or as we hoped … We are totally gutted that we can’t make it out there yet but it’s literally not in our hands right now. We are currently working on rescheduling these Texas shows for later so don’t lose hope- you will see us there sooner than later! That’s a promise!

We will be starting the tour in Ft. Lauderdale on April 2nd! On a good note – we just added a final headline show in Washington so at least that’s a little bit of good news today …”

Cradle Of Filth Planning To Release 20th Anniversary Edition Of “Cruelty And The Beast” In Spring 2018

Cradle Of Filth have shared a new update on the remixed 20th anniversary edition of “Cruelty And The Beast.” If all goes according to plan, it should be available in late spring 2018. You can read the full update in the below Instagram post:

View this post on Instagram

Dani Filth has been spending all week in Grindstone Studios with ‘Cryptoriana' producer @grindstonescott working on the remix of 1998’s 'Cruelty And The Beast’, which will see the light of day late Spring to commemorate the album’s 20th anniversary in 2018 e.h. Dani has piped up saying that ‘the remix is coming along fabulously, with a few weeks still left to seriously lift this to a new dimension. The real trick here is making the album not only sound better, but also in retaining the crepuscular atmosphere of the original release. Fans are going to absolutely love this and I promise that Scott and I have totally treated this monster with the upmost respect it deserves’. The album will also feature Cradle of Filth’s cover of @ironmaiden’s 'Hallowed Be Thy Name’, (which is in the process of being remixed as well) and the band have most definitely not ruled out the possibility of playing the album in it's entirety in the not-too-distant future. More important additions to the ‘Cryptoriana' World Tour' will be revealed next week, so stay tuned to this deviant frequency. #CrueltyandtheBeast #cradleoffilth #danifilth #grindstonestudio #cryptorianaworldtour #cryptoriana

Cradle Of Filth Premiere “Achingly Beautiful” Lyric Video

Cradle Of Filth have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Achingly Beautiful.” This song is from the band’s new album “Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness Of Decay,” which will be released on September 22 via Nuclear Blast.

Dani Filth commented:

“Influenced by the stories of E.F Benson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H.Rider Haggard, Oscar Wilde, Arthur Machen and Algernon Blackwood to shame but a few, this song concerns itself with a spectral guest at a great masked ball who, (deeply embedded in his cruel libertine nature, attends merely for merciless, seductive sport), but instead discovers the woman of his dreams and both bewitching the other, finds in her his dark, immortal equal.

I love this song as it has a very old skool Cradle vibe for me, both lyrically and musically, and reeking hideously of the Vampiric, the dropdown section in the middle is pure ‘A Gothic Romance’.”
