Goth-metal icons Cradle Of Filth have come to the mutual farewell of keyboardist Linsay Schoolcraft. Lindsay has been in the band for seven years and been an important part of the band in their busiest times.
Lindsay put out this statement:
It has been an honour and a pleasure to get to know you online, in person, and from the stage the past 7 years. You have made my life fulfilling during this period of time.
I am here to inform you that I have left the band. It was a difficult decision to make, but I can assure you it was the best thing to do for my well-being and mental health.
I have been doing well on my road to recovery and will continue to be a full-time musician through my other two musical projects.
I want to extend a massive thank you to the band for letting me be part of Cradle of Filth’s legacy for the time I was present. It was an incredible experience and I’m so grateful that we got to share this together.
I want to send my well wishes to my successor too and I ask you all to please be as warm and welcoming towards them as you were with me so long ago.
I hope that some of you will continue to join me on my journey as a composer and singer. The magick and the (black) metal doesn’t end here. Thank you again for all of the love, support, and memories. It will not be forgotten.
All my love and gratitude,
We wish Lindsay and remaining members of Cradle Of Filth, all the best in the future.
