Prepare For Invasion With DANI FILTH From CRADLE OF FILTH

“We’re a very live theatrical cinematic band. There is a lot going on in our music and on stage as well. We wear quite elaborate costumes.

Dani Filth

Cradle Of Filth are a band best experienced live.

Their moody, atmospheric music – while still imposing and engaging on record – is elevated to another dimension when played out on stage and after an absence of far too long Australian fans will once again get the opportunity to marvel at the wonders of Dani Filth and his band of miscreants.

After unleashing their first live album in aeons last year titled Trouble & Their Double Lives – some of which was recorded in Australia – Cradle Of Filth have been making up for lost time by touring on a global scale, with their sights now set firmly Down Under where Filth has promised the band will more than pay their debts of absence.

They will be joined by Moldovan heavy outfit Infected Rain – led by the enigmatic and talented Lena Scissorhands – who will be making their debut trip to this country in a double-headed musical snake that promises to bite more than a pit full of adders.

Cradle Of Filth mastermind and frontman Dani Filth joined HEAVY to discuss the tour and other things happening within the band.

Yeah, pre-pandemic, wasn’t it?” Filth questioned when we mentioned it’s been a while between visits. “That would be the main crux of the reason, then (laughs).”

We ask what has changed with the band between their last Australian run of shows to now.

We’ve got a different line-up,” he offered. “We’ve toured everywhere. We toured America during the pandemic, actually, right on the tail end. Aside from that, we have progressed with writing the new album. We’ve already done a track with Ed Sheeran as well, although that will probably be coming out on the special edition of the new album. I can’t really talk much more about that with legalities and what have you. Our new album should be out… we should be dropping a new single actually, around the time of the Australian tour – maybe a little bit later – with the outlook for the album being dropping in March next year. That’s almost finished, and we have just been super busy with the band. Lots of gigs. The album we started last July and the record company was like, why are you taking so long? And we were like, because we’re on tour (laughs).”

In the full interview, Dani talks more about their upcoming tour in Australia, their new album, and the challenges of balancing recording with touring. He revealed that the recording is expected to be finished by the beginning of June, with a focus on mixing and shooting videos in the Czech Republic.

Dani also emphasized the distinctiveness of their new music and their willingness to push boundaries, while also expressing excitement for the upcoming shows and the support band, Infected Rain. The discussion also touched on the band’s international composition and their collaboration with Ed Sheeran.
