Paradise Lost ‘Draconian Times’ London Show Confirmed
Paradise Lost are to play their classic album, ‘Draconian Times’, in its entirety at The Forum on April 1st. This will celebrate the album being re-released by Sony music through the “Legacy” series; which will feature the entire digitally re-mastered album including a 5.1 Dolby Surround mix in a brand-new collector’s edition digipak box set.
Commenting on the shows, Paradise lost vocalist Nick Holmes has said: “It’s going to be amazing to play the ‘Draconian Times’ shows again.
“‘Draconian Times’ was a huge success for the band; it seemed to be exactly the right album to do at the right time, and to a certain degree was definitely the end of a chapter for the band. We always considered the album to be a ‘better’ version of its predecessor, ‘Icon’, and using [producer] Simon Effemy again for the third time, I think we were all on the same hymn sheet and knew exactly what we wanted and what the album should sound like.
“We had done a pretty extensive touring schedule for the ‘Icon’ album before it, and there was already a decent buzz around about the band.
“In the 1990s without the Internet you could only really gauge how things were going once you walked onto the stage and saw how the crowd responded to songs! But after the ‘Draconian Times’ album was released, the response was phenomenal.
“Knowing that ‘Draconian Times’ is still considered by many as being among their favorite albums of all time fills me with great pride, and I’m very grateful to have been part of it all and now having the chance to be here again playing it in its entirety is phenomenal. We are all very excited and can’t wait to do the shows live, I really hope we see you all there and you have as much fun as us!”??”
