Fans are wiping tears now. British death metal band Cradle Of Filth called off several of their upcoming concerts in Europe and Tel Aviv. The sideline is because the band decided to focus on the preparation for their upcoming new album. Theprp.com reposts an official statement from Cradle Of Filth:
Unfortunately Cradle Of Filth are cancelling their three upcoming shows in Europe (prior to the special London Palladium show), plus the show In Tel Aviv, Israel, due to time restraints concerning writing and pre-production for entering the studio for recording the forthcoming new album.
Having played literally all over the world this year, it is unfortunate that keeping the band this busy has forged an ever-decreasing window in which to fit everything in and so it is with some regret that we have to announce the cancellation of these shows.
That being said, Tel Aviv will be moved to a slot next year to coincide with COF’s first tour of China.
The headline show at the Entrepot in Bruges, Belgium on November 2ndremains unaffected.
Once again sincere apologies for this sudden turn of events, the next thing on our very metal agenda (and the last of a busy year) is the grandiose London Palladium performance on 19th October.
The nightmare before All Hallow’s Eve!
And brethren. please watch the heavens for a much pleasanter Cradle announcement later this week…”
Cradle of Filth will release a remixed and remastered edition of Cruelty And The Beast on November 1 through Music For Nations. The band recently dropped a lyric video for “Lustmord And Wargasm (The Lick Of Carnivorous Winds).” You can check the video HERE.
After the announcement, only two live concerts will run as scheduled. Those two shows are in London and Bruges, Belgium. The remaining four dates will be canceled.
