'Avalanche' Single & Video Released!

We’re proud and happy to present to you the next single and video from our upcoming album ‘This Is The Sound’: Avalanche!

Let us take you on another journey into a picturesque, abstract world. Listen to the summoners of the ‘Avalanche'. A story about a cult and a freezing end to an intimate death wish…

Shot in the heat of beautiful Tenerife, an intentionally contradictory setting, this video tells you our story with symbolism and movement, contrasts & metaphors. So sit back and let your imagination run wild - enjoy!

Once again we’d like to thank everyone involved for their hard work: the talented actress Fabienne Fellmann and of course AVA Studios GmbH and their awesome team!

Also included in the digibook will be an alternative and limited cover artwork plus an extended 32-page booklet, filled with the our notes on the stories behind the songs.

OUR BRAND NEW SINGLE 'BLACK MOON' IS OUT NOW!

We’re proud and happy to present to you the first single and video from our upcoming album ‘This Is The Sound’: Black Moon!

Black Moon' is one of the first songs we wrote after our debut single last year, and probably the point where we definitely "found" our sound. Ivo randomly called his original demo 'Moon' and that triggered the idea of a story based on the fear of a black moon... So, as a lyrical theme, we ended up exploring mankind's tendency to add an apocalyptic interpretation to the lunar eclipse.
 
We'd like to thank everyone involved for their hard work in the scorching hot 'lunar landscape' of Tenerife: he talented Fabienne Fellmann and her fellow actors as well as AVA Studios and their awesome team!

We’ve also launched the pre-order for the album and you can get the single now on any digital platform of your choice!

Album Title & Release Date Revealed

Our first album, entitled ‘This Is The Sound’, will be released through Nuclear Blast records on June 30th, 2017.

This is it: this is the result of nearly one year of incredibly intense creativity, of ups and downs, of loss and gain. In less than a year we’ve formed a new band, written an album, and defined our sound. This is the most personal work of our lives: This Is The Sound.

We can’t wait to share it with you!

Tour With Delain Confirmed

After perhaps the most intense and creative year of our lives, our album is finally complete. It is scheduled for release on Nuclear Blast records this summer, and with that settled we've got only one priority in mind: to get back on stage, as soon and as often as possible, and celebrate our new songs live with you all. 

Needless to say, we're stoked to have been invited to join the incredible Delain on their very special Danse Macabre Tour, featuring Nightwish's Marco Hietala! We're completing the lineup along with Austria's Serenity. Every single one of these carefully selected shows in France, Switzerland, Germany, Holland and England is bound to deliver a night to remember - do not miss the one near you!

CELLAR DARLING SIGNS WITH NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS, ALBUM TO BE RELEASED LATER THIS YEAR

We are proud to announce that we have signed with Nuclear Blast records!

We are extremely happy to be “back home” after so many years as part of the Nuclear Blast family. They have shown continuing faith in us through difficult times, and we knew they needed to be among the first to hear our new music - and as it should be, everything else quickly fell into place.

We are excited to have found partners who understand our music and share our vision; together, we will make this year our year!
 
You can read the full press release here: http://bit.ly/2iFCk6q

We are currently working on our debut album, to be released in 2017. More news will follow soon, stay up date to here or follow us on our official channels!

Thank You Zurich & Amsterdam

We've ended our year with a new beginning: our very first shows are history! We cannot thank you all enough for showing up and supporting us in Zurich and Amsterdam - we've had an incredible time, and we cannot wait to return to the stage next year. In the meantime, however, we are focusing on writing new material: our first album will be recorded starting in January, 2017! We wish you all wonderful holidays and we are looking forward to one awesome year together with all of you.

World Premiere: Cellar Darling's Very First Show is Confirmed

On the 4th of December, we will celebrate a world premiere with very first live show, ever! We are joining the one and only Amorphis for their “Eclipse” 10th Anniversary Show at the Komplext 457 in Zurich!
 
We can’t wait to finally return to the stage, and there’s no other place for it than Switzerland. This is a perfect match, and we couldn’t be happier with a line-up that is certain to make this night one to remember:

First Single Released: Challenge is Out Now!

#Challenge is here. We are incredibly excited to share the very first Cellar Darling song with you! Along with ‘Challenge’, we have also released another song from the same writing and recording sessions: ‘Fire, Wind & Earth’ is a bonus track we couldn’t keep from you any longer!

‘Challenge’ is about an inner struggle, a battle you are fighting against yourself and the world. It is you, screaming at yourself in the mirror and getting high on new-found strength. It is failing, overcoming and achieving. The bipolar dance that is life.

We have fallen. We have screamed. We have battled. We found strength. We will overcome.
Both songs are available for streaming and downloading at Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer, and all your favorite platforms and services.

The lyric video features the talent of actress Fabienne Fellmann (who is also featured on the cover artwork). It is based on an idea by Anna Murphy, directed by Anna Murphy & Cellar Darling, with videography and editing by Merlin Sutter and generous post-production help by Michel Frutig at Maybaum Film.

Both songs were recorded and produced by Cellar Darling and Marco Jencarelli & Anna Murphy at Soundfarm, mixed by Tommy Vetterli at New Sound Studio, and mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios. All strings are recorded by the one and only Shir-Ran Yinon, and the artwork features photography by Merlin Sutter.
