CRUACHAN: New Album Artwork Destroyed By Irate Girlfriend

Irish folk metal band CRUACHAN have finished mastering their fifth album, "The Morrigan's Call", tentatively due in June via Greece's Black Lotus Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Pagan" was recorded at Sun Studios in Dublin and will be preceded by the release of a single, "The Very Wild Rover". In addition to the title cut, the single will contain the bonus songs "Bloody Sunday Unplugged", "Timmy" and "Brian Boru".

Commented CRUACHAN's Keith Fay (vocals, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, keyboards): "We have had a disaster with the cover of the new album. The cover took my brother John over four months of painstaking work and looked amazing. He had an argument with his girlfriend on Sunday night (26th March) and she unbelievably destroyed all his artwork, including the cover. This might delay the release date although he is planning to take some time off work and complete a brand new cover in under two weeks! Here's hoping he can pull it off and keep it away from his girlfriend!!!"
