After the critical and popular success of Cold Night in Soho at the beginning of the year, the Tiger Lillies return to their inspired stage shows with this new album, based on the life and works of the peerless Edgar Allan Poe.
In a dark and seemingly haunted palace a troubled poet struggles with his inner torments and how to express the images that possess his mind.
Suddenly, there is a tapping, and he meets a raven of especially black and devilish character, who provides the poet with a certain ink that is darker than any other and will guarantee his lasting renown.
The poet writes, frantically producing verse after verse, until soon the ink runs out.
Desperate for more, he runs headlong through the many corridors and rooms of the palace, at each turn encountering a poem, a tale or an episode from Poe’s life, and scattered like so many discarded poem drafts, strangely pale and dying maidens...
