Having been dormant for the last several years, last Friday brought some wonderful news. Yorkshires favourite exponents of wonderfully bleak, gothic doom metal, My Dying Bride, have returned! What’s more, they have returned with a wonderful new single, and news of a brand new album.
My Dying Bride’s new single is called Your Broken Shore, and it is the first single taken from upcoming album The Ghost Of Orion, which will be released on the 6th of March on Nuclear Blast Records. You can enjoy Your Broken Shore right here:
The return of My Dying Bride follows a very difficult period in the bands’ history, particularly for vocalist Aaron Stainthorpe. The band went on hiatus in 2015 when his then five year old daughter was diagnosed with cancer. Thankfully she made a full recovery, but the band lost two members before they were able to enter the studio to create The Ghost Of Orion. Nevertheless, they forged on, and with new guitarist Neil Blanchett and new drummer Jeff Singer onboard, their new line up was assembled, ready to present their new album to the world in a couple of months time.
A variety of pre-order bundles for The Ghost Of Orion are available from Nuclear Blast, which are available now.
Here’s My Dying Bride singer Aaron Stainthorpe on Your Broken Shore:
The first song from MY DYING BRIDE for five years comes laced with passion, power and their unyielding desire to create the most thoughtful and heavy music possible. ‘Your Broken Shore’ is recognisably theirs despite an evolution spanning 30 years, it’s new and fresh but with unmistakable provenance and production surpassing anything they have previously released. This track represents just a taster of things to come as the new LP “The Ghost of Orion” is upon the horizon containing seven further compositions of deliciously crushing gothic doom/death metal.
We’re absolutely thrilled to have My Dying Bride back, so stay tuned for more updates between now and the release of The Ghost Of Orion in March.
