Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Paradise Lost has issued the following announcement about canceling six upcoming European tour dates:
“As some of you maybe aware, we have had to use a stand in guitarist (Milly Evans) to replace Greg Mackintosh for a few dates due to a serious illness within Greg's family. We did this with the sole purpose to prevent having to cancel any shows and to avoid disappointing fans that had already bought tickets and were looking forward to the concerts.
"So it is with great regret that we have to unavoidably announce that some gigs must be postponed for now and rescheduled as soon as possible. This is due to prior commitments Milly Evans has with his own band. We are working round these to fly him back and forth wherever possible to minimize any disruption to the tour, but we ask you to bear with us in this difficult time. The list of gigs to be postponed are as follows:
3rd Dec - Romania
4th Dec - Bulgaria
5th Dec - Croatia
10th Dec - Switzerland
11th Dec - Germany
12th Dec - Switzerland
The updated list of Paradise Lost European tour dates is as follows: More...
Paradise Lost has issued the following statement about lead guitarist Greg Mackintosh sitting out the remainder of their upcoming European tour dates:
"Tragically, Lead Guitarist Greg Mackintosh will be unable to continue with Paradise Lost’s ‘Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us’ tour of Europe due to a terminal illness within his family.
"Greg’s father was taken critically ill some weeks ago, yet Greg decided to commence the tour anyway in the hope that future news from home would be positive. This unfortunately was not the case, therefore (as of 6th November 2009), Greg will remain in England to support his relatives during this difficult time. Everyone involved with the band would like to offer Greg our support and to let him know all our thoughts are with him.
"The tour will not end here though. Milly Evans, (Paradise Lost’s long-standing Guitar Technician, and keyboardist from Terrorvision), will fill in for Greg with immediate effect. Having worked with the band for many years, Milly knows Paradise Lost’s repertoire far more than most, and will endeavour to provide a seamless transition between guitarists. Milly is highly regarded among Paradise Lost’s fan-base and is the best person to fill Greg’s role in the band for the rest of the European tour. More...

“The Rise Of Denial”, a brand new track from the album, has been posted at the band’s redesigned MySpace site. Guitarist Greg Mackintosh comments:
“A classic PL song. This was the first song written for this album and the reason I decided to switch to 7 string guitars. It’s almost like melodic, well structured grindcore. Dropping to 'A' really took this song in a different direction. It gives the song a kind of crushing, seething anger.”
Vocalist Nick Holmes adds:
“This song has a more 'old School' PL feel, particularly in the arrangement, and is definitely one of the most aggressive and instant tracks on the album. I find that aggressive vocals only work if the music is equally as aggressive and this is a good example. It was nice to write a song that ventures off musically for a few minutes before tying in at the end. A style we haven‘t done for quite some time. Lyrically this song deals with pushing problems away, burying one’s head in the sand, something we all do at times I guess, but when people do it perpetually, it’s a problem.”
Paradise Lost has issued the following announcement about supporting acts for their upcoming European tour dates:
"Support bands for our European Tour this winter are as follows:

British gothic metal band Paradise Lost will release their new album “Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us” through Century Media Records on September 28, 2009 in Europe and October 6, 2009 in the US. The album’s opening track “As Horizons End” is currently streaming on the band's MySpace page.
Vocalist Nick Holmes commented on the song:
“This song is about someone who's on a downward spiral. Working too hard and trying to claw back some positive spirit by participating in all the so called joyous occasions in life, socialising and networking but to no avail, the long days have crushed the soul till only disappointment and cynicism remains. This song was inspired by the thousands of dishevelled looking middle aged businessmen I see in airports each year.
"This track has had a dozen face lifts since its inception and in true fashion, it was never intended to be the first track. Once it was mixed though it was hard to imagine any other song opening the album.” More...
British gothic metal legends Paradise Lost has announced that they will name their new studio album, "Faith Divides Us Death Unites Us." It will be released in September through Century Media Records.
Vocalist Nick Holmes states: "The thoughts behind the title Faith Divides Us Death Unites Us are very much self explanatory, there is so much division in the world caused by obstructing religious belief. We are all made of the same flesh and bone, what makes one religions better than the other, and would any true god allow his creation to destroy itself? The vast number of different so called faiths around the globe, just helps to strengthen my complete denial of any god, and force the belief that religion is nothing more than a man made cash induced fabrication to exploit a human beings natural fear of death."

Adrian Erlandsson, the former drummer for Cradle Of Filth, The Haunted and At The Gates, has been confirmed as the new permanent drummer for British goth metal group Paradise Lost. Erlandsson states:
"Paradise Lost has been one of my favourite bands since I first heard them in 1990. When my fellow BRUJERIA member Jeff Walker told me that PL were looking for a drummer I got in contact with Greg straight away. After a few chats and emails I was on my way to the audition. I had learnt 10 songs out of their last setlist, but after playing only 4 songs Nick said, 'the job is yours if you want it'. Great success!! I look forward to growing even older with the lads and rocking hard with them live!!!!" More...
