Theatres Des Vampires Issues New Music Video

Italian gothic metal act Theatres Des Vampires issued a new video clip for the song "Resurrection Mary." The song appears on the band's latest effort "Candyland," which is available now through Scarlet Records.

This is how singer Sonya Scarlet describes the video: "'Resurrection Mary' has been inspired by a real ghost. Since the 1930s, several men have reported picking up a young lady while driving in the Chicago area. She is dressed in a white party dress and dancing shoes. When the driver gets close to the Resurrection Cemetery, the young woman asks to be let out, whereupon she disappears into the cemetery. With this video we wanted to give our own interpretation of the Ressurrection Mary story."

Theatres Des Vampires Fires Singer

After 10 years of history Theatres des Vampires have split from the singer Alexander. After 3 months of discussions and a formal stop of activities, Theatres des Vampires was forced to stop the collaboration with the singer Alexander. The singer during the last year suffered for a badly and destructive form of jealousy against some members of the band - Scarlet (the well known singer) and Fabian (the keyboard player and main compositor). This caused major problems and a virtually impossible continuing of activities of the band in this kind of situation.
The band fronts 2 options: disband or fire out the one who has been the problem in the last months. And the decision is taken.

Theatres des Vampires, according with the official Management Tim Fraser and the label Plastic Head, decided to stop the collaboration with the singer Alexander and are now searching for a new singer to replace him.

For the moment, all activities of the band are frozen while searching for the new singer. For news and extra information, you can get in touch at info@theatres-des-vampires.com

More recent news and updates about the situation at will be up soon at www.theatres-des-vampires.com or www.theatres-des-vampires.net.

New Theatres Des Vampires Album Out In May

The Italian Black/Symphonic Gothic fiends THEATRES DES VAMPIRES announce an European release for their new album, 'Nightbreed Of Macabria', in May through PlasticHead/Blackend.

The band have described their upcoming album in an online post: “The new CD by Theatres des Vampires is the most horchestral ever produced by the band. For this reason Theatres des Vampires used several musicians and vocalists to create the macabre and grottesque atmosphere, near the Tim Burton's "Nightmare Before Christmas" feeling. The new album will be a complete musical change of the band, that leaves definitively the black metal atmosphere and produces a Symphonic Gothic Horror album. The album will feature also a bonus track, the remixed version of ‘La Danse Macabre du Vampire’, already released in the 2002 Suicide Vampire album and today remixed in a brand new way.”
