+ new single and video is out
+ New studio album to be released Friday the 13th of October
Something dark but beautiful is coming your way shortly! The new THE FRIGHT album titled “Canto V” is about to released this coming Friday the 13th of October.
Prior to the album release the Dark Rockers hailing from Leipzig, Germany are releasing a new single and matching video for the song “Oblivion”
You can see the video right here on Steamhammer’s YouTube channel:
Lon Fright about Oblivion: “Oblivion is our second single off the new record “Canto V”. This song almost wrote itself and became a true goth-rock diamond in honor to icons such as The Mission, The Sisters of Mercy or Fields of the Nephilim. Get ready to swing your coffin lid to this Song at the next party.”
CANTO V is available as a digipack CD, strictly limited Vinyl Edition (500 only on 180 gr. see through red vinyl with black streaks, gatefold cover incl. Poster and the entire album on CD) and as Download version. (please find pix of the physical formats attached)

Put your hand on your heart: It’s hardly going to be any old random stories when a band like the Fright names its latest release after one of the greatest works of world literature. The titleCanto V goes back to Dante’s Inferno, in other words to the opening section of his Divine Comedy, and it documents two things: Firstly, it’s the fifth studio album by the formation from Thüringen (which explains the Roman symbol for 5), secondly, it’s a particularly special piece of work, both musically and with regard to subject matter. For, even more than on their previous releases, on Canto V the Fright perfect their greatest strengths. At the same time, their first-class songwriting once again effortlessly meets international standards, sounding as catchy as it is ambitious. As we have become accustomed, the Thuringian dark rockers’ sound derives from a wide variety of sources, from Gothic Rock legends like Bauhaus, The Cult, The Mission, Sisters Of Mercy or 69 Eyes (who The Fright toured with in 2013) to traditional hard rock à la Whitesnake, Mötley Crüe, Guns N` Roses or Skid Row.
