Nuclear Blast to release Cradle Of Filth album

Official press release: One of the most infamous and notorious names in metal, Cradle Of Filth, continue to shock, excite, disgust and inspire in equal measures. On November 9, 2010 in North America, the latest chapter of the band's dark history will be released through Nuclear Blast Records USA. Frederick Jude, Managing Director of Peaceville Records, comments on this upcoming cooperative effort: "Football aside, we're pleased to be teaming up with Nuclear Blast on this very important release. Given their resources, interest in the band, and track record in the U.S., we believe Cradle Of Filth will be best positioned to better the sales of their last album in North America." Grammy-nominated Cradle Of Filth have been pioneers of extreme music since their 1994 debut and have continued to evolve with each of their subsequent releases. The band have continually refused to bow to convention or conform to prevalent trends and fads and have constantly sought to push the boundaries of their art. Whether through their wildly elaborate & theatrical live shows (which incorporate giant lumbering puppets, fire-breathing dancers, freaks and stilt-walkers), provocative merchandise (including the now legendary 'Jesus Is A C***' t-shirt), breathtaking artwork, or the weighty subject matter of their albums (their latest told the story of a French Lord who fought alongside Joan Of Arc before embarking on a horrific killing spree), this is a band whose uncompromising stance has been rewarded with legions of fans around the world, making them the most successful British heavy metal band since Iron Maiden. This month, vocalist Dani Filth, guitarists Paul Allender and James McIlroy, bassist David Pybus, drummer Martin Skaroupka and keyboard player Ashley Ellyllon enter Monkey Puzzle Studios near Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk, England to begin work on the follow-up to 2008's Godspeed On The Devil's Thunder. Loyal stalwarts to the satanic horror ethos, Cradle Of Filth will compose another concept album, this time based on Adam's first wife, the lascivious demoness Lilith. Throwing medieval nuns, Knights Templars, Greek mythology, lashings of sex, occult lore, and violent bloodshed together into a creative milieu, the band are poised to create a darkly erotic nightmare set to their unique scope of supreme vampyric metal.

I love this band, and maybe the reason they can still put out good music (aside from thornography which was horrible) is cause they shuffle members so much

Football aside? Aside of what? There was no mention of football (or soccer in this part of the world).
