(Freeman Promotions) As fans anxiously await the studio follow up to Cradle Of Filth's highly-acclaimed 2021 full-length album, 'Existence Is Futile', the extreme metal legends led by iconic frontman Dani Filth have unleashed a thirst-quencher of epic proportions - their first live album to be released in over 20 years, 'Trouble And Their Double Lives', set for release on April 28, 2023 via Napalm Records.
Recorded between 2014 and 2019 at different performances in the USA, Europe, Australia and beyond during their "Cryptoriana World Tour" and dates following, the album serves as a time-capsule of blisteringly intense live energy, and an astounding testament to Cradle Of Filth's renowned latest era.
Produced, mixed and mastered by Scott Atkins at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk, England with recording captured by Danny B, the brand new live onslaught not only features a slew of fan favorites encompassing the band's electrifying discography - such as "Nymphetamine (Fix)", "Bathory Aria" and "Blackest Magick in Practice" - but also two bonus tracks and two entirely brand new songs, "She is a Fire" and "Demon Prince Regent".
Listen to the brand new, spine-tingling studio track, "She is a Fire", and watch its new accompanying music video today!
Cradle Of Filth mastermind Dani Filth says about the track: "This track and the other original track on this album, 'Demon Prince Regent', were both written after the recording of Existence Is Futile and present a perfect, but not necessarily related, bridge between our Nuclear Blast days and the forthcoming album on Napalm Records. It was always intended to be a double album, so we just thought, 'f**k it! Let's cram some original material on there as well! The absolute worst of both worlds!
"The song itself is about the epitome of burning passion; the dark inspiration of love and the creature that has ignited it."
The two new studio tracks provide a hefty taste of what's to come on future Cradle Of Filth studio releases! "She is a Fire" starts the album with a sinister riff, ominous atmosphere and spine-tingling keys. Dani Filth's renowned vocal delivery cascades in haunting screams and whispers atop hair-raising guitar leads and unrelenting drums. "Demon Prince Regent" slams in with a wall of sound and grim, blackened guitar leads before reaching a headbanging, bouncing chorus. Dramatic, score-like symphonics encapsulate the melancholic anthem before leading into a speeding solo, proving itself as yet another CRADLE OF FILTH classic to be.
Make sure to grab your copy of this very special addition to the Cradle Of Filth canon while they last!
Dani Filth adds: "I would say a live record was long overdue, judging by the 20-odd year gap between this and our previous offering! It also serves as a great accompaniment to the forthcoming co-headlining 'Double Trouble Live' tour(s) with DEVILDRIVER, and strangely enough is also a notable gap-filler whilst we prepare our debut album for Napalm Records, due for mass excretion in 2024."
