Cradle Of Filth have changed the release date of the first single from their eagerly awaited twelth album, 'Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay'.

Debut single 'Heartbreak And Seance' will now be released on July 11th, and the pre-orders for the album will go live on the same day.

The band recently shot a music video for 'Heartbreak And Séance’, which will also be released on July 11th and all the photos in this article are brand new, just released and from that shoot.

Cradle Of Filth mainman Dani Filth told us:

"Working with such an artistic director as Artūrs Bērziņš was indeed an honour, as the video shoot was very extensively planned, involving a myriad of extras and crew, make-up girls and set builders, a crow, some well-behaved snakes and a considerable amount of snow, candles, water, trees, naked bodies, lamentable mourners, as well as all being submerged in suitably gothic landscapes and vistas.

"And the fact that we travelled to Riga in Latvia to film it was also very unique and interesting.

"The video itself is fantastic, drawing from the darkly erotic imagery of the album artwork and bringing it to richly technicoloured classical life. We had such a blast shooting it, as the accompanying photos attest to..."

'Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay' will be released on September 22nd via Nuclear Blast and the stunning cover artwork by Artūrs Bērziņš can be seen at the top of this article.

Bērziņš is the mastermind behind the new record's artwork, photography and videography and is best known for his defiant neo-symbolism raster graphics and oil paintings; postmodern interpretations of classic myths. He has been proclaimed as a "sacred monster of Latvian postmodernism".

'Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay' was recorded at Grindstone Studios, Suffolk by the very honourable Scott Atkins, esq. who has been the resident go-to producer for Cradle Of Filth for several albums.

Dani Filth sat in during the mix, serving up flaming mugs of teas, making the studio couch his own and lending his ears when necessary.
