Cradle Of Filth is set to unleash their latest release through Peaceville Records in October of 2010. Peaceville issued the following statement about the signing:

"Never shy of embracing the epic, Cradle have constantly sought to push the boundaries of their art. Whether through elaborately theatrical stage shows (incorporating giant lumbering puppets, fire-breathing dancers, freaks and stilt-walkers from the notorious Circus Of Horrors), provocative merchandise (including the now legendary ‘Jesus Is A Cunt’ t-shirt), breathtaking artwork or the weighty subject matter of their albums (their latest one was a concept album telling the story of a French Lord who fought alongside Joan Of Arc, before embarking on a horrific killing spree), this is a band who have refused to be confined by the labels that have been placed on them.

"The band enters Monkey Puzzle studios near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk this month to start work on their new album, the follow up to 2008’s Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder. Cradle Of Filth remain stalwarts to the satanic horror ethos by again composing a fully blown concept album, this time based on Adam's first wife, the lascivious Demoness Lilith; throwing Medieval nuns, Knights Templars, Greek mythology and lashings of sex, occult lore and violent bloodshed into the smelting pot, to create a darkly erotic nightmare set to their unique scope of supreme vampyric metal.

"For this release the band wanted mastery of their own destiny, choosing to release the album on their very own AbraCadaver label in conjunction with Peaceville Records, home to such illicit luminaries as Darkthrone, Katatonia, My Dying Bride, Bloodbath and Gallhammer amidst many others.

"Vocalist Dani Filth has described the move as being 'a choice to move away from the artistic restrictions/mindless inhibitions imposed by dwelling on a major label' and cites the current financial clime as 'the perfect opportunity to start doing things our own way again, with the added benefit of being a far bigger fish in a proverbial pool, surrounded by people who have been handpicked to get the job best done. And more importantly... who still are hungry for the taste of music'.

"Having recently published the long-awaited 'Gospel Of Filth' grimoire of all things ghastly and ghoulish, the band will finish the new album, undertake it's heavy press schedule and then embark on a full world tour in its support. Whatever the future holds, you are guaranteed that the alliance between Cradle Of Filth and Peaceville records will be mad, bad and dangerous to know... The cradle will fucking rock!"

RTB, saw them with Satyricon and Septic Flesh...you're not lying brother, double D's that would make any man drule. Plus, she's a good musician to boot. Might be the only one except Paul Allender worth mentioning in that band.

^Saw that same tour in LA,ES ....COF is still a decent band....alot of the old fans dont like their new sound or the direction, but since 05 i ve been a fan and they sound fine to me.....theyre suppose to be touring next year,.....lets get it on.
Not a satyricon fan, but the lead singer had a pitchfork/crossbow type of mic stand which i thought was pretty cool.....
