Paradise Lost Announces 10" Version Of "Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities)"

From the harrowing doom of the 1990 debut "Lost Paradise," to 1991's genre-defining "Gothic," to 1995's break-out "Draconian Times," to 1997's electronically-tinged "One Second," to 2007's return to a heavier form "In Requiem," and finally last year's opus "Tragic Idol," Paradise Lost has continued to evolve since the band's inception in 1988.

To celebrate Paradise Lost's influence on the scene, a special compilation will be released this fall to commemorate the band's 25th anniversary landmark.

Entitled "Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities)," this album will be released on October 21st in Europe (digitally on November 5th in North America) and features artwork by Parisian designer Valnoir.

All tracks found on the compilation are previously released rarities - except the new track "Loneliness Remains," and newly recorded "Gothic 2013" and "Our Saviour 2013." These three tracks will also appear on a mint green 10" (USA exclusive color; limited to 300 copies) that includes a CD booklet and CD insert.
