CELLAR DARLING Unveil music video for fan-voted single 'Drown'





On March 22nd, Switzerland's CELLAR DARLING will release their new concept masterpiece 'The Spell', which tells the story of a girl who falls in love with death and to get their loyal fans involved, the band had decided to let their online followers cast votes on which song from the tracklist they would like to see released as next single. The winner was the 7-minute long 'Drown' and today, you'll get to see the hauntingly beautiful music video that was once again animated by Costin Chioreanu.

"For this single, we wanted to do something different", the band states. "And we felt that our striking one-word tracklist is perfect for a fan vote. To let people decide which song they want to hear next based on only the title and length of the song, and to take us out of the decision process for once. To our surprise -- and joy -- the song that is probably the least "commercial" of all of them was chosen and we think that is kind of cool… we are proud of every chapter of this concept album, so let's go ahead and release a non-single single, for once. We hope you enjoy it!"

Check out the new video for 'Drown':




Pre-orders for CELLAR DARLING's sophomore concept album 'The Spell' are available now and you can get the album as 2 CD-digibook (featuring 13 songs + an audiobook of Anna Murphy telling the story behind the concept), black vinyl or digitally via this link: http://nblast.de/CDTheSpell
The band also asked Costin to create the dark and mesmerising artwork representing each of the 13 songs on 'The Spell'. Now each chapter has been brought to life with an exclusive, signed and dedicated art print that the band are offering in their own online store.

Even before releasing their sophomore album, CELLAR DARLING will hit the road and perform their new progressive folk hymns live. Catch the band on the following dates:

EX-HIM Frontman Ville Valo Reveals New Band & Album

Ex-HIM Frontman Ville Valo has announced his return to music with his new band, Ville Valo & Agents, with their debut single, a cover of Rauli Badding Somerjoki's 'Orpolapsi Kiurun'(‘Orphan Child Of The Skylark’) to drop later this month on the 21st September, with an album to follow in 2019.


Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

“This story begins three years ago,” says Pulliainen, whose band played with Badding in the 80s. “Upon finding three demo cassettes in my drawer which had been sent to me by Badding back in the day, I knew I had to contact Ville right from the get-go. I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project. Badding meant for these songs to be recorded and even if it took us 30 years to make that happen, I feel I've kept my promise."
