Paradise Lost Confirms New Album Title And Release Date

British gothic metal legends Paradise Lost have announced that the name of their forthcoming new studio album will be "Tragic Idol," which will be released through Century Media Records on April 23rd, 2012 in Europe and April 24th, 2012 in North America. A message from guitarist Greg Mackintosh reads as follows:

"We are currently holed up in The Chapel studios in Lincolnshire, England recording our new album, which is entitled Tragic Idol. The album will again be produced by Jens Bogren and is influenced by classic doom metal and classic metal. I would say it is more melodic than the last record whilst retaining the heaviness. There are lots of guitar solos and melodies. The album will contain such track titles as 'Honesty In Death,' 'Theories From Another World,' 'In This We Dwell' and the title track 'Tragic Idol'."

Tour dates for the album will be revealed soon but in the meantime, the band has confirmed the following festival appearances:

March 16 - Hammerfest IV - Prestatyn, UK
