CRADLE OF FILTH frontman Dani Filth has posted the following message on the band's official website:
"Dear blood-feeders and readers,
Just a quick plunge into the darkness that is the C.O.F schedule of late, to let everybody know that the 'Viva La Bam' filming week near Philadelphia last month seems to have been a complete success, with a televised date of mid, to end of July in the U.S and then, (working on the premise that the show is then broadcast in Europe several weeks/months later), we are expecting an Autumnal airing of the show featuring none other than yours truly and his band of very merry men.
As an experience it was a great one, we became friends with Bam on the last American tour when he came out to see us on the road and so it was with high expectancy of partying for a week that Guitarist Paul A. and myself flew out early for me to film the first part of the show with Bam and his usual crew of miscreants. Not to give too much away, but we definitely pissed off his Uncle when we decided to rip a new......... ah, for the sake of the plot and a massive lawsuit pending on behalf on MTV i must refrain from saying any more at present!
Sorry!??!!! but suffice to say that along the way there were the usual misdemeanours and hi-jinks at bars and back at Bam's luxury pad. I was treated to a white-knuckle ride in his new Lamborghini V12 sports car, which Billy ------ (in a previous un-aired episode) had just ----- a tasteful ------ in to. Two nights all-expenses paid partying in New York at various well-to-do expensive gaffs off of Times Square; Being a guest on 'Radio Bam' which ended up in a fight between two of the hosts!; The opportunity to dump a VW Beetle on top of another car and basically just have a riotous week right up until the time when the rest of the band flew in and things just got that little bit crazier.
Put it this way, by the time Saturday morning rolled in i'd had about six hours shut-eye in three days and had to collapse in the safety of my hotel room whilst poor old Bam had to fly out to do a skating demo all that day. Subsequently the week was excellent fun and all the things that could be filmed i hope will make a really, really, pigs are squeal-y entertaining show. So thank you everybody involved with the programme for making myself and the band feel right at home, which in truth could've just been that one keg of beer, but of course the night only found it's humble beginnings there at that point....
As for other matters, the writing of our new album is going from strength to strength as six, almost seven songs finished are proudly testament to, meaning that the studio start date of around the end of August is looking spot-on.
Also, the aforementioned 'Gospel Of Filth-The Midian Bible' is now half way towards completion, with the chapters concerning faerytales and childhood nightmares and Gothicism having recently been polished to a ravening ebony gleam. Author Gavin Baddeley has some alarmingly good interviews and rare photography included and the special edition (which will precede the worldwide release of the coffee table book on this very website and might well be limited to just a few thousand copies...), as well as being bound in gilded leather and hand signed by both contributors alike, will also include an extra chapter by me on the erstwhile shennanigans of the band over the years in a warts'n'all / off the wall fashion. More on this as the release date looms on our ever-so bruising horizon...
And last but not least, on the subject of our forthcoming DVD... All the menu pages, concert footage, mixing and half of the backstage extras (including another lengthy behind-the-scenes shockumentary) are nearing completion, leaving just enough time to embellish this massive improvement on 2001's 'Heavy Left-handed and Candid', (which at the time of going to press has sold in excess of 100,000 copies worldwide): which means that we, as a band, have just about enough time to shit sometime in the latter half of July and finish wiping our arses in September at our going rate!
