Video Clip For New Single “Bonfire Night” Issued By The Fright

German Goth rock outfit The Fright issued a video clip for the new single “Bonfire Night.” The song is taken from the upcoming new album “Canto V” which will be released Friday the 13th of October worldwide via Steamhammer/SPV. It will be available in digital formats only in North America. The album can pre-ordered at this location.

Lon Fright comments: “This is our first single from the upcoming album “Canto V”. A dark hymn that sounds like sexual intercourse between The Cult and Alice Cooper. If you like it dark and hard rockin’ check it out.”

“Canto V” was produced by Waldemar Sorychta at Dortmund’s Waldstreet & Denroad Studios. “Having produced legendary discs like Wildhoney by Tiamat, Waldemar was my absolute first choice,” explains Lon Fright. “He’s worked with bands like Moonspell, Lacuna Coil and Sentenced, and is a fan of Type O Negative, so he fitted perfectly into our perspective. It’s an honour for us to have him produce our album.”

So on “Canto V” everything fits together – songs, lyrics, production and album title – a bit like in Dante’s tale – into a complete circle. Lon Fright: “‘Canto V’ is famously known as the first real circle of hell. If we don’t open our eyes soon and shake off our fear of all things new, we’re in danger of sinking deeper and deeper into this maelstrom.” Well, The Fright has taken a first major step out of the vortex.
