February 27, 2020, a month ago
With just over a week left until British doom legends My Dying Bride unleash their new album The Ghost Of Orion, the band release the penultimate trailer detailing the making of the new record. In today's instalment, Aaron discusses the background to the band's latest single "Tired Of Tears", as well as revealing how his daughter features on a new track that will be released as part of an EP later this year.
The Ghost Of Orion will in stores on March 6 via Nuclear Blast. Pre-order the album on CD, black 2LP Gatefold, white 2LP Gatefold, red 2LP Gatefold and picture disc 2LP Gatefold here.
My Dying Bride’s three decades of misery almost came to an end several years ago. Following 2015’s universally lauded Feel The Misery album, vocalist Aaron Stainthorpe’s daughter, just five years old at the time, was diagnosed with cancer. Shocked and heartbroken, Stainthorpe put all band activities on hold while he, his immediate family, and My Dying Bride put their collective energies into eradicating what Stainthorpe called, “the cruelest of God's bitter and loveless creations.”
The high hurdles, however, didn’t stop with cancer. In 2018, returning original member and guitarist Calvin Robertshaw texted his departure, effective immediately. No reason was given or explanation provided to anyone. Then, just as My Dying Bride had regrouped after positive news that his daughter was effectively cancer free, returning drummer Shaun Taylor-Steels departed right before the band were slated to enter Mark Mynett’s studio, Mynetaur Productions.
Down two members but feeling right as rain, My Dying Bride moved on, mastered the doldrums, recording magnificent new album, The Ghost of Orion, to the joyful tears of fans across the globe, in the process.
