My Dying Bride - Lineup Changes, Tour Dates Announced

Original bassist Adrian Jackson of My Dying Bride has left the band. He's left for a future in the USA and doesn't seem to have plans for My Dying Bride. He annouced his departure to the band on the 5th January.

Here is a statement by My Dying Bride:

"We have parted in good faith and wish him luck with his new life out there. It has absolutely no effect on any of the gigs we have confirmed. We have already rehearsed his replacement to gig readiness and she is looking forward to playing for the first time in My Dying Bride. More on his replacement, Lena, soon.

Secondly we have had to replace long term stand in drummer / thunder truck / Uberlunatic John Bennet due to his work commitments. He is saddened by the fact he cannot drum for My Dying Bride anymore as are we, but we understand that we all have to make a living and wish him luck too in his job.

It's not all doom and gloom though as we have been rehearsing with excellent drummer Dan Mullins of Thine, Bal Sagoth and Sermon Of Hypocrisy fame and again he too is now at gig readiness. MDB has a new fresh focused feel to it and we are looking forward to the shows with a vengeance".

My Dying Bride - New Video Posted Online

Doom/Death Metallers My Dying Bride have posted a new video online. The video is of their new song 'Deeper Down' which comes from the band's upcoming album "A Line Of Deathless Kings". Deeper Down was also the first single from the album. The video was directed by Charlie Granberg.

Here is a comment by Granberg about the video:

"The video is about a guy that is so filled with grief and self pity that he sees the world as totally black, even though you get a hint in the beginning of the video that it's summer and all. Then his visions and view of the world takes over. And it just gets darker and darker from there. Is he about to commit suicide or just taking a swim? That's up for you to decide. I have tried working on a subconcious level with a lot of symbolism and metaphors, but still trying to make it somewhat documentary-like and believable."

The clip, which was directed and conceived by David Palzer, will be included on the group's upcoming "Sinamorata" DVD, tentatively due early summer via Peaceville.
