Cradle of Filth announce fall tour dates; band to play ‘Cruelty and the Beast’ in full

Posted by on August 2, 2021


 Cradle of Filth have announced their return to North America for their Lustmord and Tourgasm tour, where these extreme metallers will perform their 1998 concept album, Cruelty and the Beast, in its entirety. The trek is scheduled to kick off on October 1st and will run through October 19th. 3Teeth and Once Human will be joining in supporting the trek. 


Mastermind Dani Filth comments:

“It’s been far too long America, but soon we will return to haunt your shores again. We, as a band, are very much looking forward to coming back to the States and performing ‘Cruelty and the Beast’ in its entirety (plus some firm fan favourites), which was our earlier intention before the Pandemic reared its ugly head.”

Filth continues:

“To say we’re very excited about this, plus the support of 3Teeth and Once Human is an overwhelming understatement!”


Once Human guitarist Logan Mader adds:

 “After nearly two years of being pent up, it’s time to let loose! We are beyond ready to hit the road and destroy stages this October supporting the mighty Cradle of Filth and in support of our new single, ‘Deadlock,’ featuring Robb Flynn. Once Human’s new album will be out early ‘22, more singles to come!”


The 1998 record circles around the legend of the Hungarian “blood countess” known as Elizabeth Bathory:

“Released in 1998, the monumental Cruelty and the Beast is based on the legend of the Hungarian “blood countess” Elizabeth Báthory. Born into a prominent Hungarian family in 1560, Bathory went on to torture and kill an unknown number of women and girls – reportedly up to 650 – between 1590 and 1610. Despite evidence against her, Bathory was spared a death sentence by her family’s prominence and was sentenced to imprisonment at Čachtice Castle in Hungary (now Slovakia) until her death in 1614. Bathory is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most prolific female killer in history.”

On October 22nd, Cradle of Filth’s new album Existence is Futile will be released via Napalm Records. Check out the first single “Crawling King Chaos” here and pre-order the album at this location.
