CRADLE OF FILTH will tentatively enter the studio in the fall to begin recording its new album. The follow-up to 2017's "Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness of Decay" is expected to arrive sometime in 2020.

Released in September 2017, "Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay" was recorded at Grindstone Studios, Suffolk, U.K. by Scott Atkins, who has been the resident go-to producer for CRADLE OF FILTH for several albums.

In March, CRADLE OF FILTH will return to North America once again to promote "Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay". For the second leg of its North American onslaught, the band has enlisted industrial/metal shock rocker WEDNESDAY 13 as well as theatrical metal newcomers RAVEN BLACK.
