British extreme metal ghouls Cradle Of Filth are pleased to announce that this forthcoming Hallowmas season will present some freshly fiendish celebrations. The vile six-piece will be performing on Saturday 29th October at London venue Indigo at The O2, followed by an after-party set to run deep into the night. Blackgaze pioneers Alcest will be playing as support.
The evening’s proceedings will comprise a wicked set of eldritch fan-favourites and new songs alike, taken from their highly lauded new record, Existence Is Futile. The preparatory conjurations have begun and the blood oath is settled – make sure you don’t miss out, because this event is set to be a night that we’ll never forget!
Dani Filth commented: Hello fellow filthlings, won’t you come join us for our now yearly Monstrous Sabbat held at the 02 Indigo London for a Haunted Halloween show! VIP will be limited to 200 and will be allowed early entry, given a laminate and lanyard. Meet and greet with the band and a photo with the band, as well be allowed access to the VIP bar ’til 6am! We hope you join Cradle of Filth and our special guest Alcest for this most auspicious occasion .”
Cradle Of Filth recently released a stunning video for their track How Many Tears To Nurture A Rose?, Directed by Vicente Cordero, it weaves a haunting tale – sinister, alluring and deadly. But he that dares not grasp the thorn, should never crave the rose…
Cradle Of Filth‘s USA tour will take place next month, supporting Danzig.
The gates of hell opened once again in 2021, revealing Cradle Of Filth‘s 13th manifesto Existence Is Futile. Pieced together in isolation at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk with studio guru Scott Atkins, the record is a pitch-black, perverse and at times absurdly brutal masterpiece, based around the concept of existentialism.
Diehard fans were thrilled to learn that horror icon Doug ‘Pinhead’ Bradley made a welcome return, lending his dulcet tones to the band’s most politically astute song to date, the epic Suffer Our Dominion as well as the album bonus track Sisters Of The Mist, which is the conclusion to the Her Ghost In The Fog trilogy, started over 20 years ago on the infamous and classic Midian.
Cradle Of Filth have a heavy touring year ahead including a run with legend Glenn Danzig across the US and a slew of summer festival dates.

Belched from Hell’s depths into the rustic charms of the Witch County, Suffolk, thirty long and disturbing years ago, Cradle Of Filth are undisputed giants of the heavy metal realm. Imperious purveyors of a perennially unique strain of dark, dastardly and wilfully extreme metal, with deep roots in the worlds of gothic horror and occult curiosity, the band led by Dani Filth has weathered three decades of tumult and trial, earning a formidable reputation as both a singular creative force and one of the most riotously entertaining live bands the metal world has ever produced.
