It is with the gravest of sadness that CRADLE OF FILTH announce the departure of guitarist Richard Shaw and Keyboardist Anabelle Iratni from the band’s ranks. ⁣⁣ Due to other commitments Richard is passing his prestigious baton to newcomer Donny Burbage, who will be fulfilling guitar duties throughout the forthcoming US tour with Danzig, alongside Ashok and bassist Daniel Firth. ⁣⁣We also say farewell to Anabelle and thank her for her awesome contribution on ‘Existence Is Futile’, her successor being the very talented singer/keyboardist Zoe Marie Federoff. ⁣⁣As with Rich, the band wish Anabelle continued success in all her future endeavours.
