MY DYING BRIDE Explain New Album Delay

MY DYING BRIDE have issued a statement regarding their decision to push back the release date of their new album, tentatively titled "The Thirteenth Chapter", to the beginning of 2004. The follow-up to 2001's "The Dreadful Hours" was recorded at Academy Studios and features material that is being described as "objective" observers as "very dark and twisted."

According to the band, "The [previously announced] gigs will not be delayed or tampered with at all. There are no problems with the artwork, only delays coming from deadlines not met due to not feeling 100% about the way the art should look. So rather than rush we waited...

"Yes, disappointing for all of us, but we felt it the correct thing to do. The artwork is close now but the delay means February next year. Doom is slow, we all know this.
The album is finished musically, we were at Abbey Road in London on Sept. 6-7 mastering it. We have a title and all lyrics and song titles, but they will be released in good time."


Oct. 31 – London, UK @ Astoria
Nov. 01 – Utrecht, NETH @ Tivoli
Nov. 02 – Antwerp, BEL @ Hof Ter Lo
