Paradise Lost To Release New Album “Medusa” In September, Reveal Cover Art

Paradise Lost have confirmed that their new album “Medusa” will be released on September 1. You can see the cover art for that below:

Nick Holmes commented:

“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!”

Gregor Mackintosh added:

“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.”

The band will perform the album in full at the LKA Longhorn in Stuttgart, Germany on September 1.
