Moonspell Working On New Video Off "Alpha Noir" Album

Moonspell Working On New Video Off "Alpha Noir" Album

Moonspell has issued the following announcement about releasing a new music video off the band's upcoming "Alpha Noir" album:

"Lickanthrope will be the first video clip to come out of the Alpha Noir album. It will be directed by Filipe Melo, who worked with the band on the I will see you in my dreams videoclip, recorded ten years ago. The shooting will be made in Nandufe, Tondela, in the central region of Portugal."

Director Filipe Melo offered the following synopsis:

"Little red riding hood enters a bar, in an abandoned house amidst the woods. In this bar, the regulars are not your average kind of people - it's a place of vice, where a pack of wolves and other unearthly creatures find solace. Moonspell are just another part of the varied local entertainment. However when things go wild we will see that the band isn't just what meets the eye.

"In a cross between the pagan Portuguese folklore and a tribute to the classic Hammer movies this videoclip will bring out not only the ferocious intensity of this song but will have its place in Portuguese Film history as the first werewolf transformation ever made in Portugal.

"The videoclip features also several local Theatre and cultural groups, Portuguese actors and a special appearance by the very own Suicide Girls Portugal, in a task force which will blow your mind.

"The video will be premiered in Moonspell's/Napalm Records youtube channels as well as selected TV shows and online pages. Beware the wolves at night, beware the lunar light!"

"Alpha Noir" is set to be released on April 27th via Napalm Records, and the cover artwork is availablehere.

New label for Sisters Of Mercy ?


New label for Sisters Of Mercy ?

Every now and then, the gothic network is waking up with cheers as a new album and single from Sisters Of Mercy is being announced. Also last week this was the case as several mailinglists announced a new album and single from the UK cult act. Allas, once again it was a rehashing of the good old news that has been on the band's official webpage for ages now. But what the rumours did not tell was that apparently the band would be negociating with the brand new Universal sublabel W14 Music. It was a source close to the label who informed us that the band was contacted and that talks had started. For your info, W14 Music will become the vehicle for Universal to re-launch old glories such as Siouxsie or Level 42 on a larger scale. Siouxsie will release a new album on W14 Music, next year. For Sisters Of Mercy it might be their best shot ever to get back into the public's attention. The band has not released any new material since 1993's "Under the Gun". The band did not reply to questions from the editorial staff. More news as we get it confirmed.
