CRADLE OF FILTH will celebrate the upcoming release of their new album GODSPEED ON THE DEVILS THUNDER (which is set for an October 27th release) with the re-launch of their official website- CRADLEOFFILTH.COM.
The new site, which will be as much an online COF community as an information portal, will enable fans to build their own profiles, interact with each other and load their own content to the site.
The site will launch at 4pm UK time WEDNESDAY 8th OCTOBER and to celebrate the launch, a previously unheard track from the new album will be premiered on the site. MIDNIGHT SHADOWS CRAWL TO DARKEN COUNSEL WITH LIFE is the longest track from the album at just 2 seconds shy of 9 minutes long!
Also on the site will be a selection of the stunning images from the artwork for the album which was put together by artist DAVID HO.
GODSPEED ON THE DEVILS THUNDER is a dark fairytale of a concept album centering on Gilles de Rais, the French nobleman who carved out his place in history as a brother-in-arms of Joan of Arc, as well as a prolific, sick and twisted serial killer who began his life as a devout, pious man before devolving into full-fledged evil. This, their 8th studio album, marks the 10th Anniversary of their first concept album ‘Cruelty and the Beast’, which was based upon the life of Elizabeth Bathory.
The band will showcase tracks from the album at their upcoming headline show at London’s Forum on December 1st.
Pre-order the new album, which is available as a digital download, standard CD and a Special Edition 2 CD set (which features 10 rare and some previously unreleased tracks) HERE.
