Aaron Stainthorpe (vocals) and Andrew Craighan (guitar) of the legendary UK doom metal band MY DYING BRIDE were interviewed at the Graspop Metal Meeting (June 27-29) in Dessel, Belgium by "Whiplash", a weekly metal show on Belgian national radio Studio Brussel, hosted by AFTER ALL guitarist Dries Van Damme. Listen to the chat in streaming audio at this location.
MY DYING BRIDE is currently recording its highly anticipated follow-up to 2006's "A Line of Deathless Kings" with longtime producer Mags. A late 2008 release via Peaceville Records is expected.
Check out photos from the recording sessions on the band's official web site.
MY DYING BRIDE recently announced the addition of keyboardist/violinist Katie Stone to the group's ranks.
Peaceville Records in April released MY DYING BRIDE's "An Ode to Woe", a two-disc live CD/DVD in digibook packaging. The show — which was originally streamed on the online concert channel Fabchannel.com — was filmed at the world-famous Paradiso, Amsterdam, Holland, in April 2007. The legendary venue (previous performers include NICK CAVE, THE ROLLING STONES, NIRVANA and the SEX PISTOLS) provides the perfect setting for this special gig.
