Cradle Of Filth – Announce & Detail New Full Length, Launch Single

    Cradle Of Filth announce the release of their 13th manifesto, entitled Existence Is Futile, pieced together in isolation at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk with studio guru Scott Atkins. It consists of 12 new tracks with a total playing time of 54 minutes. One of them, “Crawling King Chaos”, is now available for streaming as the first single/video. Check it out.

    “The album is about existentialism, existential dread and fear of the unknown,” frontman Dani Filth explains. “The concept wasn’t created by the pandemic. We’d written it long before that began, but the pandemic is the tip of the cotton-bud as far as the way the world is headed, you know? I guess the title, Existence Is Futile, does sound a little morbid. But again, it’s more about recognising that truth and saying that everything is permitted because nothing really matters, which mimics the occultist Aleister Crowley’s maxim. We all know we’re going to die, so we might as well indulge life while we possess it. The final track on the album – “Us, Dark, Invincible” – really drives that point home. Also, the artwork for this record was created by the Latvian visionary Arthur Berzinsh, who also dressed the last two albums, and that reeks of the exceedingly beautiful yet apocalyptic too.”
