DEVILMENT unleashed "THE GREAT AND SECRET SHOW", 11/3/2014 via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.
FROM DANI FILTH:
Wishing everyone a horribly frightful night in the company of guys and ghouls alike.
To accompany said festive activities, please check out the freakish new video for Devilment’s latest single ‘Hitchcock Blonde’ here;
The video was directed by Sam Scott Hunter with a skeleton crew of academic students, with thanks to Film Suffolk.
It features actress Leanne Joyce as the Hitchcock Blonde, who has appeared on Britain's Next Top Model, Call The Midwife and The Royals to name a few.
Dani comments: "This is all about
the legendary film director Alfred Hitchcock's infatuation with his on-screen heroines; cool, controlled, aloof and sophisticated blondes. The song even name-checks ten of his favourite actresses. As ever there is a psychotic bend to the lyrics and the accompanying video, which was shot in a derelict, haunted hotel in the middle of Ipswich (the band’s home town) where Lord Nelson was said to have stayed on numerable occasions. The various hideous frights throughout the video were past denizens of the hotel captured on camera."
Witch County wicked wanderers DEVILMENT are delighted to announce She Must Burn as very special guests on their upcoming tour of the UK in December.
SHE MUST BURN were last seen opening up for Cradle of Filth last October and certainly left an lasting impression on all who survived their blistering set.
A slew of awesome local acts will open the show each night (one per venue) and a list of these will be presented shortly.
In the meantime, DEVILMENT release their forthcoming masterpiece "Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes" on 18th November via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
Yesterday the band revealed the first track from the album entitled, 'Under The Thunder’.

Front bottom Dani Filth wistfully recounts the meaning of the song:
"A forced hand. A warning. A call to arms. Retribution undertaken by a wronged nation double-crossed on the land of their noble forbears. The song is a powerful metaphor for justified retaliation on a common enemy and the onset of the storm.”

Dani's crew have meticulously pieced together a second blood-spattered batch of deranged anthems that brings vastly more colour, intensity and lyrical versatility to this band's spectral palate. The second DEVILMENT record makes no splintered bones about its nefarious intent, offering a bewildering torrent of disparate and demented ideas and delivering them with refined, ultra-gothic panache and several jolting doses of Dani's trademark verbal subterfuge. Assisted by long-time collaborators Lauren Francis (keys and vocals), Colin Parks (guitar), Nick Johnson (bass) and new drummer Matt Alston, Dani has arrived at the telling moment where DEVILMENT become a genuine force to be reckoned with.
