CELLAR DARLING, the much-hyped new band formed by ex-ELUVEITIE members Anna Murphy, Merlin Sutter and Ivo Henzi, have released the second trailer for their upcoming debut album This Is The Sound, out on June 30th. In this new clip, the three musicians speak about finding new inspiration and discuss the perfect setting they need for songwriting – and if you always wanted to find out what angry fairies and the apocalypse have in common, check out the trailer.
Furthermore, CELLAR DARLING has been confirmed as support act for legendary gothic rocker EVANESCENCE and together they will play an exclusive show at Z7 in Pratteln, Switzerland on July 8th!
“It’s an absolute honour to be playing with such an incredible and legendary band! Even more so because this will be our first occasion to celebrate the release of our album »This Is The Sound«… Don’t miss this one!”, state CELLAR DARLING.
This Is The Sound is available to pre-order here
This Is The Sound will be available in the form of a CD or double vinyl. For a little extra, a limited digibook is also available. It features 3 bonus tracks! Each band member chose a cover song to interpret in CELLAR DARLING’s own, unique style. Anna picked ‘The Cold Song’ from Henry Purcell’s “King Arthur” opera, Tears for Fears’ ‘Mad World’, was chosen by Ivo and to top it all off – the epic Queen classic ‘The Prophet’s Song’ – Merlin’s all time favourite. Also included in the digibook will be an alternative and limited cover artwork plus an extended 32-page booklet, filled with the band’s notes on the stories behind their songs.

After their split with ELUVEITIE, Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi and Merlin Sutter quickly realised their musical journey was far from over. What quickly developed was a unique and fresh combination of grand and heavy riffs, powerful drumming and a unique voice along with the signature folky, earthy tones of the hurdy gurdy. This, combined with classical elements as well as inherited folk influences, led to the creation of something entirely new, setting Cellar Darling on the path of musical innovation.
