Good evening Filthmongers,
I thought I'd quickly write a blog before departing for Mexico this week to undertake Cradle Of Filth's tour of South America.
Everything is go and we are all presumably well-rehearsed. I say presumably as I haven't seen any of the band since finishing the European tour late last December! A bit tricky when you all live in different parts of the world it has to be said.
Anyhoo, I do know that we are all very excited about playing together live again, and finally I might be able to rid myself of the Seasonal Affective Disorder I have been suffering from over the last couple of months, and lay the haunting spectre of the cancelled US tour to rest. Though, of course, we are all still hoping that the tour will be rearranged for later on in the year, all claws crossed.

On other matters, I have at last resigned myself to the fact that I cannot exist without some contact with the outside world in the form of a Facebook account, which is actually more pleasant than I first gave it credit for, as I have had thousands of awesome comments and suggestions from the fans that have found their way to this particular cobwebbed corner of the Internet. Plus, if you're wondering, I do actually read it!

As mentioned before, I have written an editorial for the Metal Hammer HIM special for their new album 'Tears On Tape', by request of Ville Valor, an album which I can highly recommend indeed. Plus there will be a four page article on the origins of Black Metal as seen through the eyes of one protagonist in particular (Moi) in the upcoming Terroriser special out on April the fourteenth.

Now, two things to mention before I depart.
The POEtry book I have been sporadically working on now has a title, 'Across The River Bedlam', with all illustrations lovingly finished by their creator Sam Araya (the artist responsible for 'Thornography' and 'Harder, Darker, Faster'
amid various COF t-shirt designs). See below for an example of two pages ripped straight from this verbose little mother fudger..
And secondly; Cradle Of Filth has an adult comic winging its way voraciously toward you.
At the moment a story has been scripted by the comic writer Kurt Amacker (with involvement from yours truly horribly), and several artists are in the process of mocking up some example pages for the prospective publishers.
I am very excited about this venture, as it promises to be a very adult story woven straight from the Cradle Of Filth universe, featuring a liberated Oscar Wilde, the Demoness Lilith, nefarious sexual magickal practices and an errant Suffolk Lord who is in the unenviable process of being charged under 19th century blasphemy laws, discovering himself engaged in a nightmarish occult netherworld.
Keep watching this space for more updates on all these lovely things in the very near future!

Okay, that should be all for now, thank you in advance to all the people who will make this forthcoming leg of our World Tour as enjoyable as ever. You lot rock our unpop monopoly properly!!!

All the very best,
Dani Filth, train-bound to London, 8/4/13e.h. to collect his Mexican visa.

There's no words to describe how exited I am about the poetry book. I've been waiting for it eagerly for such a long time! And I'm sure it will exceed all my expectations as your work usually does.

And the comic book sounds intriguing as well... Very much so..
