Latest Paradox News

Music Video in the works for the second single taken from 'Chapters' titled EAT. The song itself was inspired by the documentary Earthlings which focuses on all aspects of the treatment of animals in todays society. Cork film makers Phoenix Pictures are behind the production of the video. We'll have more on this shortly but expect something very different from any previous video we've done in the past. Cheers guys!

Check out the new memorabilia section on the official Paradox website with various posters and flyers, some dating back to the bands first gig in 1998. Looks very old school for sure! We had some crazy gigs in a select few pubs without the aid of the internet, Facebook and so on.. strictly word of mouth, hand made flyers and people showed up and went nuts! This was before we recorded 'Circle of Growth'. Other posters include BOB live in Las Vegas 2002, UK Tour 2010, Sir Henrys in Cork in 2001, Shonen Knife support and many more..

The new Paradox album 'Chapters' is now available on physical CD from CD Baby. For anyone who is old school (like ourselves) and still likes a proper CD with full colour inlay card you can order a copy directly from CD Baby for $9,99. They also have a special offer on shipping for the month of February on both US and international orders. The physical album also includes an exclusive bonus track exclusive to CD. 'Shame for my name' was re-recorded at Mikes studio in Canada on August 24th 2014. The track was originally recorded in December 2000 at Master Groove Studios in LA and appeared on the debut Paradox album Circle of Growth. Maybe you can hear the difference!

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came along to the Crane Lane Theatre last night for the first of two Album Launch shows for the new album. Special thanks to Reverend Green goes to jail for sharing the stage, Maeve Kelly for her wonderfully mournful Cello playing and Brian Casey Music for drumming. Next up is next Friday, January 30th at DeBarra's Folk Club in Clonakilty, West Cork. More on this shortly! For everyone who grabbed a copy of the album happy listening.

For anyone who still likes a good old fashioned CD (like myself) then come along tonight to the Crane Lane Theatre in Cork for a full on live experience and grab a physical copy of the album for the very low price of 5 euro. (The price of a pint in Irish) Doors 9pm. Maeve Kelly will also be joining us on stage playing Cello and Brian Casey Music will be drumming. Brian is responsible for the engineering, mixing and mastering of the new album. Special guests Reverend Green goes to jail will be kicking everything off so be sure to come early. If you like Alice in Chains, Soundgarden with a hint of Evanescence then you don't want to miss this female fronted powerhouse of a band. And that's an understatement. Oh yeah it's FREE Admission if you didn't already know. See you guys later!

SO THE ALBUM LAUNCH DAY HAS ARRIVED! While the album is yet to appear on the likes of iTunes and so on (we'll let you know when it does) you can hear and download 'Chapters' the album in its entirety on bandcamp. The bandcamp download also includes a bonus track and full artwork, exclusive to bandcamp. It's been a long but enjoyable process recording 'Chapters' over the past year and a half, down at Wavefield Recording Studios in Bantry, West Cork with Brian Casey Music behind the desk. We can honestly say the album and these songs would not have sounded the same if recorded by someone else. Brian's input was a valuable one and we are both very proud of the finished result. Hope you guys enjoy it.

We had our last recording session for the new Paradox album recently down at Wavefield Recording Studios with Brian Casey Music on the desk. One guitar track using the nameless Paradox guitar we found many years ago (we still don't know th...e make of it but it has appeared on the last two albums and some nice female vocal harmonies. All in all a very productive final recording day which initially started 1 year and 4 months ago at Brian's studio. We are also happy to announce the album name - "CHAPTERS". In the age of 1 track digital singles and EP's, we thought we would keep it old school and do a full length 14 track album. 12 tracks were recorded at Wavefield Recording Studios in West Cork and 2 extra tracks at Mike's (Paradox drummer and Pete's brother) studio in Canada. First single from the album coming 12/12/14, teaser already up online to check out right here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAjc7c7vFS0

We're happy to announce that the brand new Paradox single titled 'Nothing Lasts' will be officially released on December 12th 2014 and this is an invite for everyone to hear the track in it's entirety. We'll have a small teaser up online shortly and we'll be sure to keep you updated before the single's release.
The track itself takes a different approach to any previous Paradox sound with some nice Cello carrying the song along! A BIG thank you to Maeve Kelly for her flawless Cello playing which really brought the song to life and added a whole new vibe and atmosphere. The new Paradox album has been a working progress for 1 year and 2 months down at
Wavefield Recording Studios in Bantry, West Cork (Ireland)...with multi tasking musician, engineer and producer Brian Casey Music on the desk. 'Nothing Lasts' was initially recorded nearly 1 year ago as one of the new albums earlier tracks with Pete Mac playing drums, guitars and bass. Long term drummer and brother Mike Mac is currently in Canada recording his own solo album however Mike does drum on various tracks on the upcoming album.
We've been in two minds about which song to put out first but we feel 'Nothing Lasts' best represents where the band is at musically of course :) We're proud of the track and hope you guys will enjoy it too! The song will be available everywhere online on Dec 12th from Bandcamp to iTunes, Spotify and many more. It will also be available to stream in full online for Free. While the new album will be available in CD format as well as digital the single Nothing Lasts will only be available digitally to download. Small teaser on the way and more updates very soon... Cheers everyone :)
