As previously reported, CRADLE OF FILTH are set to co-headline the Blood For The Gods Tour with TYPE O NEGATIVE and special guests, MOONSPELL. Along the trek, CRADLE OF FILTH will headline the first New Jersey Metal & Hardcore Festival in Asbury Park. CRADLE OF FILTH vocalist and ringleader, Dani Filth, elaborates on the anticipation of the new tour:

“We are extremely looking forward to getting back into America and Canada to capitalize on the response we received on the recent summer Ozzfest jaunt…and what better way than by playing with two bands that are not only hewn from the same gravestone when it comes to gothic aesthetics, but also trendsetting, artistic bands that collectively we admire. It will be a wonderfully dark and vampyric tour, and if you miss it you must be either deaf or dead!”

In related news, CRADLE OF FILTH will release a special DVD EP called Mannequin (named for the video currently in rotation on MTV, FUSE, and MuchMusic, and the single which appears on the recently-released Headbangers Ball compilation) on December 2nd. Featured on the DVD will be the “Mannequin” video (directed by Thomas Mignone, who previously worked with SLIPKNOT, MUDVAYNE), the “Babalon A.D.” video (which was deemed too extreme for MTV, and directed by WIZ, who previously worked with Marilyn Manson), a live performance video of “The Promise Of Fever” (directed by CRADLE guitarist Paul Allender), a “Serpent Tongue” animated featurette (also created by Allender), and a behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of “Mannequin,” combining performance footage with ghoulish Tim Burton-esque, stop-motion puppeteer work courtesy of George Higham.
