He doesn't mind Fields of the Nephilim being labelled a goth band. "I see that as a label the followers have given themselves. It's a brilliant following. We're quite lucky, they've stayed with us and grown. We do this festival in Leipzig in Germany and the whole town is taken over for a week – the whole town – by these people draped in black, wonderful, massive, dramatic clothes. It's fantastic."

CM: More than anything else what I'm interested in is releasing fresh material. That's where I'm at, at the moment.
What sort of direction do you see it taking?
CM: So long as it's different from the last album, and different from the one before that, then I'll be happy. I've been writing anyway, so I've got an idea of where it's going. At the moment it's quite raw, so it could be a very earthy, raw album. But I can't say at the moment, I'm still crafting it. It hasn't spoken to me yet, because there's not enough of it. But I'll get an idea when… after the next month, that's when I'll be getting back on with it.

We will play the O2 Academy (Formerly Town & Country) on October 30th.

NFD have been furiously working away in the studio in recent weeks, putting together a new album -- working title Waking the Dead. It will be the followup to 2008's Deeper Visions. Other than Bob Black, the lineup for now remains a mystery; the album is planned for release by Jungle Records in October, with a single earlier in the fall.
Bob recently posted:
With Carl out there doing the Neph thing so well and Eden house doin their awesome thang i feel free to take NFD to where its sound truely belongs, all 3 bands giving 100% and providing a different part of the spectrum, a wining situation for everyone methinks :)
To learn more and follow NFD's studio process, check them out on Facebook.
In it, McCoy talks about the "Ceromonies" delays, the fate of Richard Stanley's footage of the Astoria show, the "Sleepers" EP, why he feels better onstage now than he did when he was in his 20s, and much more. Enjoy.
