Cradle Of Filth have announced an extensive string of UK, Ireland and mainland Europe shows for the end of 2024.

The horror-loving extreme metal mavens will first tour the UK and Ireland, supported by Butcher Babies and High Parasite from October 27 to November 8.

The leg will include a special Halloween concert at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town on October 31.

The band will then play across the mainland with Butcher Babies and Mental Cruelty, starting on November 13 and finishing on December 7.

The full list of dates is available below.

Tickets to the shows will go on sale on Thursday (May 2) at 10am UK time and 11am Central European Summer Time.

Last month, Cradle Of Filth announced that they were in the studio recording their 14th full-length album, the followup to 2021’s Existence Is Futile.

Keyboardist and co-vocalist Zoe Marie Federoff posted on social media that the impending album will be stylistically similar to the band’s 1996 album Dusk And Her Embrace and 2000 album Midian.

“Tired AF, but feeling solid after day one in the studio for the new Cradle Of Filth album,” she wrote.

“I completely agree with Dani [Filth, lead singer]’s take on this being a very Dusk/Midian vibe this go around.

“These new songs are so fresh, exciting, dynamic and immersive – I can’t say any more except prepare to be blown clean away by a straight up set of bangers.

“Bloody hell, as they say on this side of the pond.”

Dani Filth previously stated that Cradle Of Filth’s 14th album will feature the band’s long-anticipated collaboration with pop megastar Ed Sheeran.

“One of the surprises, obviously, but it’s not so much a surprise is that we’ve got a song that we have Ed Sheeran guesting on. It’s gonna be on the album,” Filth told Polish journalist Pełna Kulturka.

“And people have heard it and loved it. But 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 added that the next Cradle Of Filth album won’t be out this year, but that the first single from it should be released “about September, October time”.
