CRADLE OF FILTH have announced a brand new album!
The upcoming new album, titled Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness of Decay, follows 2015’s Hammer of the Witches and will be the 12th album from the band. The upcoming album was recorded at Grindstone Studios, Suffolk, UK by Scott Atkins who has been the resident go-to producer for several albums from the band. Speaking about the upcoming album, Dani Filth says, “the album is deeply infused with Victorian gothic horror and thus the title is a reflection of that. Cryptoriana implies the Victorian’s infatuation with the supernatural, the grave and the ghoulish. And the subtitle The Seductiveness Of Decay further cements this attraction to death and the glittering lengthy process of self-annihilation.”
Alongside the announcement of the new album, the band has revealed the artwork for the upcoming record. The album artwork was created Artūrs Bērziņš.
Following the release of the new album in September, the band has confirmed a headlining tour across the UK and Ireland for October this year. Speaking about the tour, Dani Filth says, “we, as a band, are incredibly excited about hitting the UK and Ireland for a full run of dates around All Hallows Eve, as playing the band’s home country is always great fun and the audiences here are very receptive. And nuts. The dates will be the first in a long line of shows that will extend throughout the rest of the World throughout 2018. We aim to be very prolific on the live front, delivering a show worthy of our fan’s exalted expectations and more.” Tour dates are as follows:
