Devilment Part Ways With Lauren Francis, Welcome Caz Campbell (Ex-Cradle Of Filth) To The Band

Devilment, the band featuring Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth, have parted ways with keyboardist/vocalist Lauren Francis. Taking over for her will be Caz Campbell (ex-Cradle Of Filth).

Francis commented on her departure:

“I apologise if I haven’t replied to some messages. I thought it was better to address everyone together and I didn’t want to do that just before Christmas!

Being a part of Devilment has been a crazy adventure and one which I never could have predicted for myself. As many of you know, I didn’t come from a metal background, so it was a totally new and exciting experience for me. The sense of community within the metal scene is one which I had never really swen before and it’s been very humbling to have been embraced and accepted.

I have read through much of the feedback that we have received on youtube and social media, as well as speaking to fans at gigs about their favourite tracks. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that so many of you have connected with our music and felt inspired by it.

This year my life has begun taking a different shape and as much as I love the band, I am unable to commit the same level of energy and drive that it demands and deserves. So it is with great sadness that I am announcing my decision to leave Devilment.

I’m so sorry to anyone who feels disappointed by this, but I know that the band will find an amazing replacement and keep creating awesome music. I wanted to thank you all for your unwavering support and enthusiasm for the band and for my part in it.

Lots of love,
Lauren

Devilment Premiere “Full Dark, No Stars” Lyric Video

Devilment, the band featuring Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth, have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Full Dark, No Stars” This song is from their new album, “Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes,” which will be released on November 18.

Filth said the following:

“The title for this song is taken from a Stephen King horror anthology, much as the title of our first album was lifted from a book by Clive Barker (The Great And Secret Show) though there is no correlation between the book and the song, other than it represents a bleak period; a state of wanton depression; an absence of being. It is, much like many songs on this album, about regaining the light, the overcoming of demons, and of triumphing over the immense shadow of fear itself.”

Devilment Premiere “Hitchcock Blonde” Music Video

Devilment, the band featuring Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth, have premiered a new video for their new song “Hitchcock Blonde,” via Metal Hammer. This song is from their new album, “Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes,” which will be released on November 18.

Filth said the following:

“The song is pretty self-explanatory. This is all about [Alfred] Hitchcock’s infatuation with his onscreen heroines: cool, controlled, aloof and sophisticated blondes. It even namechecks ten of his favorite actresses.”
