Cradle of Filth Performing ‘Cruelty and the Beast’ In Full

When you talk about classic albums shaping genres Cruelty and the Beast by CRADLE OF FILTH sits proudly and menacingly at the top of the tree for extreme music.

In 1998 Cruelty and the Beast was released and showcased the band’s hybrid of brutality and macabre romanticism, crafting a concept album based on the life of Hungarian Countess and mass murderer Elizabeth Bathory who tortured and murdered hundreds of young women in the 16th and 17th centuries. The album was both bombastic and grandiose, inflected with gothic touches, yet unquestionably rooted in black metal. In addition to the feral bludgeoning and the slower, more melodic keyboard passages, Cruelty and the Beast featured three haunting, elegiac instrumentals filled with chiming organs, horrified screams and synthesized orchestra parts that enhanced the drama and split the presentation into three acts. No other band other than CRADLE OF FILTH would have been capable of creating such an opus.

As a concept album, it is executed with perfection…creative, intelligent, shocking, written brilliantly and played expertly. This is the only chance CRADLE OF FILTH Australian fans will ever get to witness this masterpiece live.

ALPINE Return with New Single ‘Dumb’ & Announce Tour

Beloved Melbourne outfit Alpine have returned! Today is the release day for their insanely-catchy new single, ‘Dumb’. To celebrate their long-awaited comeback, the band have dropped the video for ‘Dumb’ (directed by Marie Panguard) and announced a string of headline shows across June/July in Castlemaine, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Sydney & Brisbane.

The song came together during a Melbourne winter after keyboardist Tim Royall had returned from a trip to Japan, invigorated by the house and disco of the clubs and bars of Tokyo and Osaka. ‘Dumb’ is as playful as it is sophisticated, as nostalgic as it is modern, a balance that Alpine have always managed to strike with ease.

Lyrically the song is about being devoted to someone who isn’t devoted to you.

In lead singer Phoebe Baker’s own words, “It’s about how we can encourage our romantic imagination to a point of ignorance. Hopeless optimism on a ship of sinking love. There is a somewhat perverse enjoyment found when flirting with someone when ultimately you know it’s going to hurt. There are elements of play to be found within the slow dissolve of a relationship. Satisfaction can still be gained in the midst of an ending.”

Listen to ‘Dumb’ Here- the single out now through Ivy League Records

Primarily ‘Dumb’ is about how someone can make you speechless and nonsensically talkative at the same time.

‘Dumb’ follows the release of the band’s first two albums, Yuck (2015) and A Is For Alpine (2012). A is for Alpine peaked at #1 on iTunes and #11 on the ARIA Album Charts, and was awarded iTunes “Alternative Australian Album of the Year” and The Age EG “Australian Album of the Year”, while Yuck was released to rave reviews, debuting at #16 on the ARIA Album Charts and featuring radio hits ‘Foolish’ and ‘Damn Baby’.

The Chemical Brothers Announce 2019 Australian Tour

The Chemical Brothers are bringing their world-renowned live show to Australia this October & November. The No Geography Live 2019 Tour will have special guests, the iconic Australian duo, The Avalanches (DJ Set) and will be stopping in at Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

These run of shows will be their first in Australia since 2013. There is only one show in each city, so get organised before tickets are on sale!

The Chemical Brothers will hit Brisbane’s Riverstage on Thursday 31 October, before heading to The DomeSydney Showground on Saturday 2 November and Melbourne Arena on Tuesday 5 November.

The Chemical Brothers, Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons, have sold more than 12 million albums and six million singles worldwide over the course of their illustrious career. They have had six #1 albums in the UK, and were the first electronic act ever to receive a Grammy, taking home Best Rock Instrumental Performance for ‘Block Rockin’ Beats’ in 1998. They’ve since taken home three more Grammys.

The Chemical Brothers’ ninth studio album No Geography has just been released through EMI Music Australia. The follow up to 2015’s Grammy-nominated Born In The Echoes (the band’s sixth consecutive #1 album), it features the three blistering singles ‘Free Yourself’,‘M.A.H.’, and ‘Got To Keep On’No Geography has been hailed as their finest album since 1999 classic, Surrender.

‘Seven No.1 albums. That’s not fucking about, is it? After the best part of 30 years, there’s still no one else like them. Amazing.’ – The Quietus

The songs were road-tested in their 2018 live set, including two sold-out shows at Alexandra Palace – their biggest UK headline shows to date – and honed in DJ sets around the world.

‘Got To Keep On’ has been at the heart of The Chemical Brothers’ live shows over the last year or so, and will continue to feature alongside classics from their 25 year career as the band take on dates in the US, Europe, and the UK before landing in Australia in November.

The Chemical Brothers’ visuals have always been central to their music, and this record is no exception. Already live favourites, ‘Got To Keep On’‘Free Yourself’, and ‘M.A.H.’ (for which the video was shot at their recent sold-out London shows at Alexandra Palace) contain visuals created by Adam Smith & Marcus Lyall.  Eight years since they last performed live in Australia, The Chemical Brothers are set to return with a show that’s become a more dynamic and relevant experience than ever, both sonically and visually!

No Geography is a return to the conditions that spawned their early hits. They built a studio within a studio, a tiny room filled with gear that had sat gathering dust in Tom’s attic for the last twenty years. Using the equipment with which they recorded the bulk of their first two albums, they found the freedom to create music in a way they hadn’t for years, embracing randomness and jagged edges, building songs around vocal samples like the snatches of dialogue they found in the late ‘60s experimental Dial-A-Poem project. Several tracks feature vocals from Norwegian artist Aurora and Japanese rapper Nene also makes an appearance.

‘The Chemical Brothers are finally ready to take on the world again.’
–  9/10, Album of the Month, Long Live Vinyl

The Avalanches (DJ set) will be joining The Chemical Brothers as special guests for all dates. The iconic Australian duo are considered to be one of the most influential acts in dance music, with their debut record Since I Left You (2000) laying a blueprint for sample-based music in the 21st century, before their long-awaited 2016 follow-up Wildflower once again blew the world away.From intimate clubs to headline slots at some of the world’s biggest festivals like Splendour In The Grass, Primavera, and Creamfields, The Avalanches’ DJ sets are lauded as masterpieces in a realm of music flooded with imitators. The Avalanches are the perfect accompaniment for fellow dance legends The Chemical Brothers.

Don’t miss out on tickets to the past, present, and future of electronic music, The Chemical Brothers. They won’t last long.
