My Dying Bride Set EP Release

(Fresno) Peaceville Records have announced a November 7th release date for My Dying Bride's new single track, 25-minute EP, 'The Barghest O' Whitby,' on CD and limited vinyl.

Said the band on the origin of the idea, "Carrying straight on from the success of Evinta found us kind of out of breath for a second; we were already aware of a new-found love of all things bleak and grey and were eager to start writing in a more traditional My Dying Bride style. What did catch us off guard was the increased heaviness and the fresh approach to song writing. Moving away somewhat with the lyrical theme from our usual feeding ground, we found ourselves on the rainy moors of Yorkshire contemplating the story of the Barghest, a supernatural entity hell bent on revenge. The tale now to be told wove itself into a 25-minute epic which initially we thought would be a three part EP, but it simply became one very long song full of everything My Dying Bride and more. The violins conjure lonely tears atop a chasm of epic British doom."

'The Barghest O' Whitby' was recorded at Futureworks Studios, Manchester with long-time production partner and engineer, Mags. The release is the first to feature violin/keyboardist Shaun Macgowan, and sees the return of Shaun "Winter" Taylor Steels to the drum-stool for this recording. The cover artwork for 'The Barghest O' Whitby' also appears courtesy of vocalist, Aaron Stainthorpe.

"We've never been heavier or more cataclysmically connected to doom metal as a state of mind; it's no longer just a musical style to us."
