Cradle Of Filth is in the studio recording the follow-up to their 2021 album Existence Is Futile. The new record will be Cradle Of Filth's first with guitarist Donny Burbage and keyboardist Zoe Marie Federoff, who both replaced guitarist Richard Shaw and keyboardist Anabelle Iratni in 2022.
The new Cradle Of Filth record will once again be produced by Scott Atkins, who has produced every album for the band since Godspeed On The Devil's Thunder in 2008.
"We’re on our way Filthlings!" said Cradle Of Filth of the new material. "From Martin 'Marthus' Skaroupka: Just finished recording drums for the new Cradle Of Filth album and it's sounding amazing so far! Great to be working with our producer Scott Atkins at Grindstone Studio again!"
In the meantime, Cradle Of Filth just dropped a new live record titled Trouble and Their Double Lives, featuring two brand new studio tracks "She Is A Fire" and "Demon Prince Regent". On the new material, Cradle Of Filth vocalist Dani Filth explained what to expect in a new interview with Metal Injection.
"Well, obviously it's going to be an extension [of Existence is Futile] because it's the next album afterwards. I think it's different. It's got a very Dusk… and Her Embrace vibe about it. In essence of the material, and the lyricism and the feel of it, it stirs emotions in me and makes me feel very sort of nostalgic about those particular years. It may not to anybody else, to me it stirs up those feelings and that vibe and that atmosphere.
"I can't really describe it because again, there's a lot going on. There's a lot of different vibes, slow and fast, intricate, New Wave of British Heavy Metal going on and black metal. It's a Cradle of Filth album. And that's why it's very hard to describe that to journalists. I just say 'go and listen to it and you describe what it is,' because I'm not going to put words in people's mouths because to one person it represents something different than it would to others."
