As of yesterday, Cradle of Filth had announced the departure of Anabelle Iratni and Richard Shaw. Today, Donny Burbage and Zoe Marie Federoff have taken to the band’s Facebook to make their statements on joining the group’s lineup.
Zoe Marie Federoff stated:
“It is with immense pleasure that I announce the Grammy-nominated dark forces of Cradle of Filth have asked me to join them on their dark and fantastical adventures, and I’ve agreed to provide them with my vocals and keys. It’s a great honour to work with some of the people who inspired my own musical path in the first place and I couldn’t be more excited. I’d like to thank my bandmates in Catalyst Crime for encouraging me to go for this position, Vixen, Andy, and most especially the greatest keyboardist I know, Jonah Weingarten, for helping me prepare for the role.
You can catch me on tour in the US and Canada with Cradle of Filth for the next 6 weeks and throughout the summer festival season as well- check their site for dates and events!
If you are new to my page, welcome. I am honoured to help deliver your favorite CoF songs and I look forwards to meeting you!”
Donny Burbage commented:
“What it is y’all.
I’m pretty stoked to announce that I’m filling-in on guitar duties for Cradle Of Filth along this US tour. It’s a massive honor to help such a bunch of rad lads. Also mega shoutout to @officialibanezguitars for hooking me up with a guitar for this tour that I’m receiving later today. (Obviously not this guitar I’m pictured with lol)”
