Cradle Of Filth have announced the following statement: Cradle of Filth drummer Adrian Erlandsson has found that his two side projects Needleye and Nemhain are taking up more and more of his time and has made the decision to leave COF, so he can concentrate more of his energies on them. Adrian says “I have enjoyed my time with Cradle but it is now time to move on. I feel I am going out on a high as ‘Thornography’ is definitely our best album to date”. Cradle are obviously very sorry that Adrian is leaving, but wish him all the best with his new projects. Until Needleye and Nemhain fully take off, Adrian is also planning to do some session work.
