LINDSAY SCHOOLCRAFT Shuts Down Rumours Of Leaving CRADLE OF FILTH - "Assumptions Are Toxic" (Video)
July 9, 2019, 13 days ago
Cradle Of Filth keyboardist / backing vocalist Lindsay Schoolcraft has shut down the internet trolls that have started to spread rumours she is leaving the band following a post in which she stated: "The last 4 months with Cradle of Filth have been very rewarding. We’ve been across 4 continents and have brought our music and art to so many people. I feel grateful to say I can do this for a living and that I have a great circle and support group around me who keep me inspired and sane. Unfortunately I am not a robot nor machine and my body, mind, and spirit are running on little to no steam at the moment. I plan to go home and hide for awhile and when my energy comes back I will continue to create and push forward my solo album launch. Thank you all who were part of our world tour the past few months. Thank you to anyone who was kind and loving towards me when I was down or weak. Thank you all who are still here and for your love and patience."
Some small-minded people clearly read too much into her post, and Lindsay has issued the following answer to those individuals:
