Cradle Of Filth have announced a North American tour which will take place in March and April next year.

The band have lined up 20 shows in support of their latest album Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay, which was released in September via Nuclear Blast. They’ll be supported by Jinjer.

The band say in a statement: “The wait is over! Cradle Of Filth are extremely delighted to announce their return to the haunted shores of the US and Canada as part of the Cryptoriana World Tour.

“We can’t wait to see you foul fiends out on the monstrous highway – 2018 is going to be a very busy year for us! More on this tour to follow…”

Speaking about the follow-up to 2015’s Hammer Of The Witches, frontman Dani Filth revealed the album was “deeply infused with Victorian gothic horror” and added: “‘Cryptoriana’ implies the Victorian’s infatuation with the supernatural, the grave and the ghoulish.

“The subtitle ‘The Seductiveness Of Decay’ further cements this attraction to death and the glittering lengthy process of self-annihilation.”
