CRADLE OF FILTH bassist Dave Pybus has posted the following update on the band's official web site:
“The new album is finished and the promo tour has started which saw me and Dani travel through Cologne - Germany, Stockholm - Sweden, Amsterdam - Holland, Milan - Italy and New York - USA. There is a 6 track CD featuring unmixed and unmastered songs gone out to the press which rumour has it can be downloaded on the net. I wanna personally thank whoever did this for us as it's helped the promotion of Nymphetamine a thousand fold and we now hope to go on and sell a million copies due to people downloading our songs before we put them on the website. Cheers for that. I'll buy you a beer if we ever meet. You can officially download the title track for us when it appears on the RESIDENT EVIL soundtrack later this month. Thanks.
One thing not many people have heard so far is our BATHORY 'Bestial Lust' cover, which is set to appear on Japanese release of Nymphetamine as an extra track. We did this before Bathory mainman Quorthon died but we'd still like to think of it as a tribute to them. Maybe this track will appear on our special edition early next year, so rest of the world... don't worry.
The video shoot for 'Nymphetamine' takes place this week in London at a secret location and [ex- THEATRE OF TRAGEDY and current LEAVES' EYES singer] Liv Kristine WILL be featured in the video. Dani tells us: 'It's sort of a murder ballad. The vibe of it is going to be like you are watching theatre. It's going to be very Shakespearian, but the lead characters are actually both females, so there is going to be a slight lesbian kink to it.' Nice... I spent some of today choosing the models for the video.More...

"In connection with this album, I feel totally free as an artist and singer! It's a pleasure and it makes so much fun to work on it, and at Mastersound Studio I feel particularly well as these rooms have become something like a second home for me. Especially now, at these emotional times in which we are, it feels wonderful to record an album like this, due to the fact that it is based on a concept where deep feelings come together. It is a perfect medium to escape from every-day life. Personally I believe that "Lovelorn" is going to be a fantastic album - maybe the best production I've ever taken part in! And I'm sure the people out there will appreciate our work!"
