Having just recently wrapped up an extensive European tour with Lacuna Coil, Switzerland's ‘new wave of folk rock’ trio, Cellar Darling, are excited to announce that they will be hitting the road once again. The band left quite an impression on UK audiences when they made their London debut last year playing sold out shows with Delain on the ‘Danse Macabre Tour’, and they’ll be returning for a run of shows across Ireland, Scotland and England in March/April.
Of the upcoming tour, the band says: "We are beyond excited to announce our first headline tour visiting Ireland, Scotland and England! These are some of the most beautiful places in the world, and we feel a special connection to each of them. Ireland is Anna’s second homeland, Merlin’s year is never complete without his pilgrimage to the highlands and Isles - that’s where they produce our favourite drink too! And of course some of the most important places in rock music history. It is about time that we bring our music over for an extended visit, after the incredible welcome we received at our first show in London last year! We can’t wait to rock out with you all!" - Anna, Ivo & Merlin
The band, comprising of ex-Eluveitie members Anna Murphy, Merlin Sutter and Ivo Henzi, released their acclaimed debut album, This Is The Sound, on June 30 2017 via Nuclear Blast. Comprising of an astounding 14 tracks, the record pulls listeners into an hours’ worth of apocalyptic tales, heavy riffs and ethereal vocals.
The mediabook edition features three bonus tracks. Each band member chose a cover song to interpret in Cellar Darling’s own, unique style; 'The Cold Song’ from Henry Purcell’s “King Arthur” opera, chosen by Anna, Tears for Fears’ 'Mad World’, chosen by Ivo and the epic Queen classic 'The Prophet’s Song’ - Merlin’s all-time favourite. Also included in the mediabook is an alternative and limited cover artwork plus an extended 32-page booklet, filled with the band’s notes on the stories behind their songs.
