Cradle Of Filth’s Lindsay Schoolcraft Joins Moonspell Onstage In Tilburg, Netherlands

During their February 1 show in Tilburg, Netherlands, Moonspell were joined onstage by Cradle Of Filth’s Lindsay Schoolcraft for a performance of “Scorpion Flower.” You can see fan-filmed footage of that below:

Last night I got the chance of a lifetime to be up on stage with @moonspellofficial and sing their signature duet “Scorpion Flower”. After the performance I could barely hold back tears. Not because the performance was bad! I’m happy to say I kept my pitch the whole time 😉 The reason was because many years ago I created a vision board and listed one of my crazy, out-there dreams as “Sing Scorpion Flower with Moonspell”. Since then I have accomplished many of my goals I set out to complete, but on occasion I felt defeated and like I wanted to give up. Some dreams were a hard reality and not always enjoyable and more often than you’d think I’d felt seriously cornered or at a dead end, but what I’m trying to say here is DO NOT GIVE UP. No matter how big or ridiculous your dream may be! The gentlemen in Moonspell have such humility and it was an honour to be up there on stage with them. That performance was proof that you can be anyone and come from anywhere and do big things! I’m just some chick from Oshawa, Canada and I NEVER GAVE UP and neither should you! Thank you endlessly to Fernando, Pedro, Ricardo, Aires, Mike and their fantastic crew for giving me this opportunity that I’ve held dear in my heart for so long.

Moonspell Stream “1755” Spanish Bonus Track “Desastre”

Moonspell are streaming a Spanish track titled “Desastre.” The song is a bonus track from the band’s new Portuguese-language album “1755.” That effort, which focuses on the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, will be released on November 3.

Fernando Ribeiro commented:

“‘Desastre’ is a homage to all our Spanish-speaking fans around the world. In the late 18th century, in our streets a mixture of Spanish and Portuguese was spoken and guess what that’s exactly what we do here! This song is about how the earthquake took Lisbon by surprise and how we are nothing but a a human leave left alone to break when a strong winds blows. Enjoy Desastre, gracias y saludos!“

Moonspell Premiere “Evento” Lyric Video

Moonspell have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Evento.” The song is from the band’s new Portuguese-language album “1755.” That effort, which focuses on the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, will be released on November 3.

Fernando Ribeiro commented:

“’Bury the dead. Take care of the living’. Is one of the most famous quote of Marquis of Pombal (Sebastião José Carvalho e Melo), the minister of the King who together with the crowds of Lisbon and his engineers rebuilt a new Lisbon from the ashes and ruins of the old in just one year time.

‘Event’ talks about fate, a dialogue built between the narration of the day and the state of mind of Lisbon’s inhabitants and the all powerful choir telling me to be still and accept God’s will. This conflict and the desacralisation of Lisbon is one of the most interesting aspects of this accursed day. A fight that allowed Portugal to step out finally from the Middle Ages and make the country’s entry into Enlightenment.”
