New Re-Recorded Track "Gothic 2013" Streaming From Paradise Lost

Today, gothic-doom metallers Paradise Lost teamed up with Terrorizer UK to premiere the band's newly recorded track, "Gothic 2013", taken from their upcoming album, "Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities)." The album is due out on October 21st in Europe (digitally on November 5th in North America) via Century Media Records. The album features artwork by Parisian designer Valnoir, who has worked with artists such as Orphaned Land, Morbid Angel and Watain.

All tracks found on this compilation are previously released rarities - except the new track "Loneliness Remains," and the newly recorded "Gothic 2013" and "Our Saviour 2013." These three tracks will also appear on a mint green 10" vinyl (USA exclusive color; limited to 300 copies), which can be pre-ordered here.

"Gothic 2013" (the newly re-recorded version of the title track of the band's classic 1991 LP) can be heard over at this location, or in the player below.

Vocalist Nick Holmes commented on the track: "When the opportunity came up for us to re-record 'Gothic', we were really pleased because it meant that we could finally do the song justice (production wise) and Simon Efemey had the chance to give it his polish. 'Gothic' has often been considered a bench mark in our early career and it was good to revisit it."

The track listing for "Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities)" is:

1. Loneliness Remains*
2. Never Take Me Alive (Spear Of Destiny cover version)
3. Ending Through Changes
4. The Last Fallen Saviour
5. Last Regret (Lost in Prague Orchestra Mix)
6. Faith Divides Us - Death Unites Us (Lost in Prague Orchestra Mix)
7. Cardinal Zero
