Cathedral - Update On Future Plans


Back in February seminal UK doom metal act Cathedral announced their plans to disband. In an interview with The Quietus, vocalist Lee Dorrian now revealed the band will leave the stage permanently after a December 3rd gig at the London Kentish Town Forum. Support will come from kindred spirits Grand Magus, Comus, and Gentleman's Pistols.

The band will record one final studio album entitled The Last Spire to be released in 2012 as a follow-up to last year's The Guessing Game. There will be no live shows to support the album, as Dorrian claims that it's time for Cathedral to "move on" and hopes "to leave our recorded legacy to linger."

This news sucks so much... I can only hope "The Last Spire" is a fittingly classic album for them to sign off with. Though if it's anything like their last album, it'll only make me more sad that they're going... Definitely one of the UK's finest bands of any genre, bar none. <3

I agree, although I am happy we're getting at least another record out of them so yeah, fingers crossed it's good (and like the last one).

I'm fond of Cathedral, I really like "The Garden Of Unearthly Delights".

Even though I'm not a fan, it's always sad to see them go.

It's sad to see Cathedral split up. Hopefully they'll leave on a high note with their final album.

Among the best news last week. But a shame they're recording one more album.but it can't be as bad as The Guessing Game, or can it? Hope not

Not sure what is particularly bad news about it. the plans to disband were long known, so at least those who still dig the band get one more album out of it. unless you're cynical like Marcel.

Oh absolutely! They could have just retired after their last live dates this year, and not bothered releasing a new album. So I'm grateful for sure, that they're releasing one last album. Im just hoping it's one that's is an awesome album, and a fitting swansong to their career. If it was like the last one, I'd be overjoyed. But likewise, I wouldn't mind if it was more like "The Ethereal Mirror" type stuff. Im definitely looking forward to hearing it. xD

Cathedral is a band that I respect, and I can respect their decision to split up. I'm positive that they wouldn't want to make this last album suck in their eyes.
