A message from Aaron.

“Many of you have been wondering what has happened to the band since we cancelled all our shows back in late 2017. Well, here is the answer.
In September 2017 my beautiful little daughter, just five years old, was diagnosed with cancer. This event devastated the whole family as well as close friends and of course all of My Dying Bride and related colleagues. A black hole of worry and panic opened up before me and I was fearful of what was to come. The horror that surrounds this terrible disease is real and brutal and relentless.
The highly destructive but very necessary poison that is chemotherapy was started and after a time, surgery removed the main tumour but it had spread. Early 2018 a second major operation was needed to finally get rid of the visible mass but cells were still in her body so radiotherapy took place to destroy these. The side-effects of both chemo and radio therapies left her a broken and sorry little thing and my heart was aching like never before. As the father of a deeply sick child, I was on the brink of total implosion.
After the worst year of our lives, and stress beyond belief, we were gifted the news that so many other people never get; she is clear. She has beaten one of the cruellest of Gods bitter and loveless creations. Despite this positive outcome, there will be years of tests and potential complications which may result in many returns to hospital. I will fear for her every day for the rest of my life and hope that when I finally go to my grave she will be a strong and forthright woman.
We really need to thank the wonderful people at the NHS Childrens Hospital in Leeds for everything they have done and also the wonderful Candlelighters, childrens cancer charity for their endless and loving support.
The band took a small hiatus at the devastating news but gradually began to muster forces and start work on the next LP which we can happily tell you all, is well under way and in fact, is almost complete. I have not taken part in any writing as yet but will return to the fold this week, pen in hand and a new focus and eagerness to fulfil my role as wordsmith and vocalist for this remarkable band. We have returned!

Cheers
Aaron”

As someone who was hoping for a 2018 release - who knows, it might still happen - I feel like I am part of this eager mass of fans trying to get the band to finish the album. Knowing the reason for the delay completing this album feels like the most unimportant thing imaginable. Take your time Aaron, family first.

A nightmare. Gut wrenching. In this situation everything else becomes so unimportant. But I am glad that the worst is over!
All the best to you all

Exactly my thoughts as I read the update. I got this dreadful feeling right away, and then it turned out well and I was so relieved, and then came the info on the new album and it just seemed so unnecessary and unimportant.

Cheers Aaron, cheers My Dying Bride
Cheers y'all

I cannot even just conceive the nightmare Aaron went through. I'm releived to read she responded well to the treatment and that you can now move on to a new cycle. I wish all the best to the MDB family.

What a devastating period that must have been for the Stainthorpes. All my compassion is with them and their little fighter. I'm thinking positive thoughts that no reoccurence happens.

I'm actually thinking that we should do some kind of benefit because this kind of treatment comes with a pricetag. Would anyone be up to help out? Set up a show in your local underground venue, find some bands who want to play and donate all revenues to the family? I'm just throwing it out there :wink:

"I was somewhat overwhelmed by the response to my personal statement a couple of weeks ago regarding the terror that struck my family recently. You are great people MDB fans and I love you all!
I mentioned the wonderful children’s cancer charity Candlelighters, who have supported and aided us through these very challenging times and without them, I’m not sure where, mentally, I’d be right now. Some of you asked about a Giving Page for them and so I decided to check it out and the link is below. I’m not asking you all to make a donation but even if 1% of you did – it would make a difference to a young life.

Here is the Giving Page - Thank for any donations.

https://www.justgiving.com/sso/signin?c ... et_profile

In the future I will be auctioning many rare and interesting items on eBay to help raise more funds for this wonderful charity. I have been given some great items from Northern Music Company (Paradise Lost, Opeth, Katatonia, Devin Townsend Project, Anathema etc..) and Nuclear Blast (way too many bands to list here) who have been very generous with their support as well as sending hope throughout this last year. Thank you guys! I have no date set as yet but keep checking here to see when the auctions will begin. Oh yes, there will be some super-rare MDB stuff too!
Cheers, Aaron"

Donation made!

Don't know how it works in other countries, but over here, if you make a donation to charity, you can fiscally deduct it in your tax form. So if you're doubting, that might be an extra reason :wink:

Thanks for sharing Melkoroth, this interview might contain the most detailed account of MDB's formation to date. :)

Very interesting longread indeed, very literally quoted, but that's probably how you chose it to be published. Laughed my face off with the Swedish soccer match with Iron Maiden :D , didn't catch that anecdote yet.
