COME the 11th July in Northern Ireland we burn shit, piss off each other and maybe get ready for some recreational rioting...Situation normal, all fucked up.
But for those of us who couldn't care less about the tribal blaming as it all being 'them uns' fault we have another reason to celebrate the 11th...and no need for bonfires and flags!
Cradle of Filth have changed the release date of the first single off their eagerly awaited 12th album, ‘Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay’.
Debut single 'Heartbreak And Seance' will now be released on July 11th, and the pre-orders for the album will go live on the same day.
The band recently shot a music video for 'Heartbreak And Séance’, which will also be released on July 11th. Find some photos from the shoot below.
"Working with such an artistic director as Artūrs Bērziņš was indeed an honour, as the video shoot was very extensively planned, involving a myriad of extras and crew, make-up girls and set builders, a crow, some well-behaved snakes and a considerable amount of snow, candles, water, trees, naked bodies, lamentable mourners, as well as all being submerged in suitably gothic landscapes and vistas", said Dani Filth.
"And the fact that we travelled to Riga in Latvia to film it was also very unique and interesting. The video itself is fantastic, drawing from the darkly erotic imagery of the album artwork and bringing it to richly technicoloured classical life. We had such a blast shooting it, as the accompanying photos attest to..."
‘Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay’ will be released on September 22nd via Nuclear Blast. Find the stunning cover artwork by Artūrs Bērziņš below. Bērziņš is the mastermind behind the new record’s artwork, photography and videography – best known for his defiant neo-symbolism raster graphics and oil paintings; postmodern interpretations of classic myths. He has been proclaimed as a “sacred monster of Latvian postmodernism."
Oh, and don't forget that Cradle of Filth play Belfast on 30th October...we'll see ya there!
