UK goth metal veterans Paradise Lost have announced a 4-date “Tragic Illusion UK Tour” to celebrate their 25th anniversary. Support on the road will come from Italian gothic rock band Lacuna Coil.
Commented vocalist Nick Holmes: “25 years is a long time. On the surface, we may look ramshackled, but playing music for so many years has kept us young in our hearts and I truly believe that a youthful spirit is one of the greatest things you can’t buy in a pub. We have written many albums, played many concerts; we are older and not really any wiser, but there is a strong possibility we may play a song you thought we never would. So please come along and join the celebrations with us, including our biggest UK headline show to date!”
Added Lacuna Coil vocalist Cristina Scabbia: “Paradise Lost were in between the bands that strongly influenced me as a singer, when I started my career with Lacuna Coil, so it is just awesome for me to realize we’ll share the stage with them on this upcoming tour. I am sure that the dark vibe coming from the stage will totally embrace old school and new fans making it an event you absolutely can’t miss! Boy, I can’t wait!”
