CRADLE OF FILTH To Film Video For 'Mannequin'
- June 3, 2003
CRADLE OF FILTH's U.S. record label, Red Ink/Epic Records, has commissioned a new conceptual video for the group's new album, "Damnation and a Day", this time for the sinister, romantic track "Mannequin". The clip, which will be helmed by celebrated video director Thomas Mignone (MUDVAYNE, SLIPKNOT, TYPE O NEGATIVE, SEPULTURA, KITTIE, etc.), begins shooting on June 11 and will combine "live" performance footage with macabre Tim Burton-esque, stop-motion puppeteer work courtesy of George Higham (www.poepuppet.com). "Mannequin" will display the grandiose imagery singular to CRADLE OF FILTH's style.
CRALDE OF FILTH were the first 'black metal' band to sign with a major label (Sony Music worldwide), and they were the first 'black metal' band to have a full-length video land in the Billboard video charts (debuting at #12, and remaining for 7 weeks). CRADLE OF FILTH's well-versed and highly articulated lyrics were featured in the London Dome as part of a British language special, the band had a BBC Television program made about them, and they have sold over a million albums worldwide.
CRADLE OF FILTH will headline Ozzfest's second stage this year, beginning on June 28 in San Antonio, Texas. In addition to Ozzfest, the band has booked a headlining tour (sponsored by Guitar World magazine), which will run alongside the roaming festival.
Headline performances include:
Jun. 23 - New Orleans, LA @ House Of Blues Jun. 24 - Houston, TX @ Engine Room Jun. 25 - McAllen, TX @ Villa Real Jul. 01 - El Paso, TX @ Club 101 Outdoors Jul. 06 - Las Vegas, NV @ Huntridge Theater Jul. 10 - Portland, OR @ Roseland Theater Jul. 11 - Vancouver, BC, Can. @ Commodore Ballroom Jul. 14 - Denver, CO @ Ogden Theater Jul. 18 - Kansas City, MO @ The Beaumont Club Jul. 23 - Cincinnati, OH @ Bogart's Jul. 27 - Tulsa, OK @ The Other Side Jul. 29 - Grand Rapids, MI @ The Intersection Aug. 04 - Guelph, ON, Can. @ Club Denim Aug. 08 - Plainview, NY @ The Vanderbilt Aug. 12 - Toronto, ON, Can. @ The Guvernment Aug. 16 - Montreal, QC, Can. @ Metropolis Aug. 20 - Norfolk, VA @ NorVa Aug. 23 - Wilmington, NC @ Marzz Aug. 27 - Tampa, FL @ Masquerade

Funny becuase COF aren't black metal, at all. Its just goth shock rock. Anybody that argues with me that it isn't is a moron. COF were Blackened Death on their demos and a little on Principal... but that is it.
COMMENT | who cares what they are? posted by : EyeForAnEye 6/3/2003 6:31:31 PM
not the hugest fan but better to see them and voivod than the crap that is usually at ozzfest. I would rather see one of the headlining gigs

I can see them, and Carnage (are you serious?) within the same week as Ozzfest?!? (Grand Rapids, MI) SWEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!
and for the record, Cradle deserves the headlining spot they have more than Voivod. Voivod, especially the new stuff, blows.

i hung out with Cephalic Carnage in Detroit a few weeks ago, they're supposed to go do at least a few dates in Europe this summer, then a tour each over there and in the states in the fall. that's what their singer told me as of a few weeks ago. i may be wrong but that's what they said their rough plans are at the moment.....
