CRADLE OF FILTH Bassist Is Alive And Well Despite Rumors To The Contrary

CRADLE OF FILTH bassist Dave Pybus has shot down rumors that he was killed in a tragic car accident on the eve of entering the studio to begin recording the band's new album.

BLABBERMOUTH.NET received a message on Tuesday stating that reports were coming in that Pybus has been killed in a car accident. "Apparently Dave was driving back from a show in London with one of his label bands BLOODY MARY when his car veered off the road and hit a tree near Colchester, England (about 20 miles from Ipswich, where CRADLE live)," the message stated. "This happened 3:30 a.m. Monday night."

In an e-mail sent to BLABBERMOUTH.NET, Pybus rejected the rumors, stating, "I received a few phone calls in the middle of the night checking if I was alive or not. Well, I was quite suprised by all that... so... sorry to let you all down, but I'm still here to fight another day."

CRADLE OF FILTH are scheduled to enter the studio October 10 to begin recording the follow-up to last year's "Nymphetamine", tentatively due in early 2006 via Roadrunner Records. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "I Am The Thorn", "Lovesick For Mina", "The Byronic Man", "Cemetery And Sundown", "Libertina Grimm", "The Flora Of Nightfall, The Fauna Of War" and "Dirge Inferno".

CRADLE OF FILTH's most recent release was "Nymphetamine: Special Edition", available now on Roadrunner. The collection features two all-new tracks ("Prey" and "Soft White Throat"), covers of OZZY OSBOURNE's "Mr. Crowley", BATHORY's "Bestial Lust" and CLIFF RICHARD's "Devil Woman", two previously unreleased tracks, all-new and expanded artwork, and the video for "Nymphetamine".
