In a separate post, Cradle of Filth said they said that "After an absence of eons, we are heading to darken Australia’s horizons once more this September!"

Earlier this year, frontman Dani Filth said the band is working on their 14th studio album, but that it won't be out for some time. The band's last LP Existence Is Futile dropped in October 2021.

He also provided an update about Cradle of Filth's collaboration with singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.

"People have heard it and loved it," the frontman said of the collaboration track during a conversation with Pełna Kulturka uploaded on Jan. 14.

"It is what you imagine. It's Cradle of Filth and it's Ed Sheeran. It sounds like Ed Sheeran, it sounds like Cradle of Filth. There's a blast beat in it."

Filth said he expects the first single from the upcoming album to drop this fall. The singer added that fans should expect to hear something new on the upcoming LP.

"I think it's gonna surprise a lot of people," he said. "But it doesn't necessarily mean the album is commercial. It's a very heavy record. We just upped the game as a band. We moved one step further toward the future from our previous record."
