Cellar Darling, the new band featuring former Eluveitie members Anna Murphy(vocals, hurdy-gurdy), Merlin Sutter (drums) and Ivo Henzi (guitars, bass), will release their debut album, “This Is The Sound” on June 30 via Nuclear Blast. The disc was recorded at New Sound Studio with producer Tommy Vetterli (Coroner/Eluveitie).

In addition, the band has launched the pre-order for “This Is The Sound” and now you can get their new album in the form of a CD or double vinyl. For a little extra, a limited digibook is also available featuring three 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, Cellar Darling recorded the epic Queen classic ‘The Prophet’s Song’ — Merlin‘s all-time favorite. 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.
