CRADLE OF FILTH To Film Video For 'Mannequin'

June 3, 2003

CRADLE OF FILTH's U.S. record label, Red Ink/Epic Records, has commissioned a new conceptual video for the group's new album, "Damnation and a Day", this time for the sinister, romantic track "Mannequin". The clip, which will be helmed by celebrated video director Thomas Mignone (MUDVAYNE, SLIPKNOT, TYPE O NEGATIVE, SEPULTURA, KITTIE, etc.),begins shooting on June 11 and will combine "live" performance footage with macabre Tim Burton-esque, stop-motion puppeteer work courtesy of George Higham ( "Mannequin" will display the grandiose imagery singular to CRADLE OF FILTH's style.

CRALDE OF FILTH were the first 'black metal' band to sign with a major label (Sony Music worldwide),and they were the first 'black metal' band to have a full-length video land in the Billboard video charts (debuting at #12, and remaining for 7 weeks). CRADLE OF FILTH's well-versed and highly articulated lyrics were featured in the London Dome as part of a British language special, the band had a BBC Television program made about them, and they have sold over a million albums worldwide.

CRADLE OF FILTH will headline Ozzfest's second stage this year, beginning on June 28 in San Antonio, Texas. In addition to Ozzfest, the band has booked a headlining tour (sponsored by Guitar World magazine),which will run alongside the roaming festival.
