NEWS: New Paradise Lost album ‘Medusa’ coming September!

[Via their Facebook Page]


We can now announce that our new album Medusa will be released on 1st September via Nuclear Blast!


The album artwork was created by Branca Studio and shows the infamous Gorgone, Medusa, from Greek mythology, carrying venomous snakes as hair and turning everyone into stone who would dare to look into her eyes.

∙ Greg Mackintosh: “Whilst we were writing »Medusa« and realising what the new songs were becoming, we had to find an artist to reflect this direction. After searching around for a while, I found Branca Studios. They have a keen eye for design and their modern take on retro artwork really fit the bill. What they have come up with is a blending of colourful yet retro styling, whilst maintaining the classic PARADISE LOST feel.”

∙ Nick Holmes: “I was intrigued about a greater meaning and thinking more along the lines of what Medusa represents metaphorically. Medusa as a title works in many ways. From a nihilist perspective, when I read the description of ‘medusa’ on the wikipedia page: ‘Attempts to avoid looking into Medusa’s eyes represents avoiding the ostensibly depressing reality that the universe is meaningless’ – the title was pretty much in the bag!”


There will be a special release show on 1st September in Stuttgart at LKA Longhorn where the album will be performed in its entirety. Find out more here: http://bit.ly/2sN2F2W
