For 27 years, My Dying Bride from West Yorkshire have been the voice of the hopeless and broken, combining haunting sounds with crushing misery and melancholy. With a signature sound, the group has shaped the doom metal scene like barely any other act and integrated both soft violin melodies and violent death metal growls into the music.
Ssince the early Nineties, band masterminds and founding members Andrew Craighan and Aaron Stainthorpe have forged beautiful grief into twelve studio albums with songs of epic length. However for their 13th release, they are now bound for new horizons and proudly announce signing to Nuclear Blast Records.
Singer and lyricist Aaron Stainthorpe comments: “It is with great pleasure that My Dying Bride can announces joining forces with the formidable Nuclear Blast Records in early 2017 and has already begun working on material for the next LP and singles. It is no secret that Nuclear Blast continued to expand greatly over the years, signing epic bands from all corners of the world and giving them the chance they deserve to make something of themselves in the ever expanding metal scene. And it’s time that My Dying Bride came along for the ride. We are hoping that this wedding between a very solid label and a well-established act will bear fruit of mighty proportions in the exciting years to come!”
Since My Dying Bride rarely leaves damp catacombs to perform live rituals, each show is a highlight in itself and on April 22nd, the group will expose “Turn Loose The Swans” in its entire length at Roadburn Festival. Together with Shaun ‘Winter’ Taylor-Steels on drums and a special backdrop lighting, the band will haunt the Dutch stage and deliver a truly unique experience.
