British rockers Cradle Of Filth are considering a permanent line-up change after replacing ROSIE SMITH and CHARLES HEDGER for a string of European shows.
In a new blog post from frontman Dani 'Filth' Davey, the heavy rocker admits the band is "going from strength to strength" thanks to Ashley Ellyllon and James MCIlroy, who were drafted in as replacements.
Davey writes, "Those of you who might have seen us in the past few weeks (and in the coming days, at least) will be aware that due to aforementioned teaching commitments, both Rosie Smith and Charles Hedger have been temporarily replaced... for this tour and possibly further.
"I can't really say much more than they (Ellyllon and MCIlroy) are integrating brilliantly and the band is going from strength to strength because of them."
