Cradle Of Filth Perform In New York Alone After Members Of 3TEETH And Once Human Reportedly Test Positive For COVID-19

According to Ghost Cult, Cradle Of Filth ended up performing without supporting acts during their October 11 show at Irving Plaza in New York, NY. 3TEETH and Once Human were supposed to open, but their sets were cut after members of the bands reportedly tested positive for COVID-19. Once Human’s gear was already onstage, but it was quickly removed and replaced with Cradle Of Filth’s gear. None of the bands appear to have addressed the situation, but the tour is scheduled to pick back up at The Agora Theater in Cleveland, OH on October 14.

Former Cradle Of Filth Members Lindsay Schoolcraft And Sarah Jezebel Deva Team Up For New Song “Stolen Light”

Former Cradle Of Filth members Lindsay Schoolcraft and Sarah Jezebel Deva have joined forces for a new song titled “Stolen Light.” You can purchase that track on Bandcamp.

Schoolcraft commented:

“This song is about taking back your power after enduring a long and grueling abusive relationship. Often verbal and emotional abuse is overlooked compared to physical violence, but the after effects have proven to be equally as fatal in the long run. Sarah and I bonded over our shared struggles we’ve faced in the music industry and this song is an ode to our perseverance, strength, and triumph in taking back our careers and love of singing and creating music.

This track could have not been possible without the mega talents of Tyler Williams at Monolithic Productions and orchestrator Spencer Creaghan. Thank you always for putting up with me and my crazy-ambitious projects.

And last but not least, to Sarah. For being a fighter, a champion, a legend, and an all around awesome person and brilliant artist. You praise me too much for your return, but I haven’t thanked you enough for being such a pivotal influence on me and a singer and musician. From a distance your voice has pulled me through some darker days and now your friendship has changed me for the better. Thank you for inspiring ‘Stolen Light’ and for all that you have given us through your voice, lyrics, and performances.”

Cradle Of Filth Premiere “Necromantic Fantasies” Music Video

Cradle Of Filth have premiered a new video for their new song “Necromantic Fantasies.” This track is from the band’s new album “Existence Is Futile,” which will be released on October 22. Frontman Dani Filth commented:

“This is a very different video from its predecessor, sporting more of a narrative amid leaning back toward a dark Victorian gothic vibe, showcasing the second of many unique tracks on this, our 13th album. It’s very cinematic, much like ‘Crawling King Chaos’, but walking a much more ‘dark faerytale’ path. The director Vicente has done such an amazing job bringing the storyline together with the band and the incredible sets. It looks gorgeous. And the song is pretty good too!”

Twiztid Premiere New Video For “Neon Vamp” Featuring Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth

Twiztid have premiered a new video for their latest single “Neon Vamp.“ That track features Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth and it will appear on the band’s new album “Unlikely Prescription,” which is set to be released on September 10.

Twiztid’s Jamie Madrox previously commented:

“I’ve always respected Dani Filth and the legacy he has etched out in the world of metal and wondered what would it sound like if our musical worlds collided like peanut butter & chocolate! And like a true legend he rose to the challenge and what we recorded is the most anticipated collaboration effort in a great long while!

Filth added:

“It was awesome to collaborate on a such a genre (monster) mash-up with the guys in Twiztid.

Slightly reticent at first, when I heard the track i was like, ‘this is actually very very sick!’ and the vampiric subject matter quickly decided it for me. I really like the song, it’s bristling with dark energy and it definitely carries that ‘Blade’ nite-club vibe about it’s rap/metal swagger. I hope fans of both both bands and genres enjoy the track just as much as I did in helping forge the beast.

Like a vampire telling you to suck it, having a nice day?

We’re here to corrupt it!!!

Hell yeah!”

Cradle Of Filth Announce London Halloween Show

Cradle Of Filth will be performing at The Roundhouse in London, England on Halloween night (October 31). The show will find the band celebrating the release of their new album “Existence Is Futile“ (out October 22). Frontman Dani Filth said the following about the concert:

“An iconic venue, an iconic setlist, All Hallows’ Eve in London… six highly strung extreme metal musicians. What could possibly go wrong?! Seriously though, this is going to be a worthy return to the capitol after pre-Covid’s London 2019 Palladium bash; another auspicious night swathed in mist and full production. So come now Children of the Beast, this Halloween, Sunday 31st October, to our musical séance to raise the dead from their graves. Hot ghoulfriends invited!”

Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth Says He Has Been E-Mailing With Ed Sheeran About A Possible Collaboration

As previously reported, Ed Sheeran recently said that he would be open to the possibility of making a metal album. Now, during a recent interview with Kerrang! Radio, Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth revealed that he has been e-mailing with Sheeran about a possible collaboration.

Filth said the following:

“I’ve actually been e-mailing with him… He actually touched base with me. I’ve been invited up to his place. Well, he said he could come down to mine, but I pointed out to him that I don’t own my own bar or village, and it’d be better if I went there.

He said he’d do anything. Quite literally. He said he’s a massive fan. He seems like a genuinely very nice guy actually.”

He also said that he doesn’t think the idea is far fetched:

“We’ve always been like that. If someone tells us not to do something, then we’ll do it. That’s been our prerogative the whole time. I did this rap song with this band called Twiztid in America. It’s actually turned out more like Rammstein and Beastie Boys than full-on rap. So, in that respect, I think it the Ed Sheeran collaboration would be great fun. I think it’d be great if we did it for charity, because at least it would bring a bit of credibility to it. Because obviously to his public, it’d be, like, Oh my god, he’s got this weird comical guy,’ and to my public it’d be, like, ‘Oh my god, this is a bit weird, isn’t it? But I think that sort of thing nowadays works.”

As previously reported, Cradle Of Filth will also be releasing a new album titled “Existence Is Futile” on October 22.

Cradle Of Filth To Release New Album “Existence Is Futile” In October, Premiere “Crawling King Chaos” Video

Cradle Of Filth have announced that their new album, “Existence Is Futile,“ will be released on October 22. You can find a video for the effort’s first single, “Crawling King Chaos,” below along with the cover art and track listing:

“Existence Is Futile” Track Listing:

01. “The Fate Of The World On Our Shoulders”
02. “Existential Terror”
03. “Necromantic Fantasies”
04. “Crawling King Chaos”
05. “Here Comes A Candle… (Infernal Lullaby)”
06. “Black Smoke Curling From The Lips Of War”
07. “Discourse Between A Man And His Soul”
08. “The Dying Of The Embers”
09. “Ashen Mortality”
10. “How Many Tears To Nurture A Rose?”
11. “Suffer Our Dominion”
12. “Us, Dark, Invincible”
13. “Sisters Of The Mist” (bonus track)
14. “Unleash The Hellion” (bonus track)

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.“
