The mystery is on: a cryptic video teaser was posted on social media by Mercyful Fate. The post reads “Tomorrow…”
There are speculations out there about what it could be: more tour dates announced? The band has been playing a new song as part of their live sets, “The Jackal Of Salzburg“, so, maybe a new single?
King Diamond has recently stated that Mercyful Fate‘s next album won’t be released before his new solo effort. Also, in a recent interview to Creem, the King has revealed this is not a reunion:
“It’s very cool and a lot of fun, but people have misunderstood what we are doing now. This is not a reunion. We are just picking it up again because the stars are aligned correctly now. And that’s been the thing all the time. Before, when people asked, ‘Do you think you’re going to play with Mercy again?’ I would never say never. But it’s got to be completely right. I don’t want to go out there and try to milk a cow and do a show with the backdrop and then collect and say, ‘That was that.’ That’s not right. And Hank has the same philosophy. Either we do it 200%, or we don’t do it.”
