Paradise Lost Post Video For Blood And Chaos

Friday, 04 August 2017 Written by Laura Johnson

Paradise Lost have posted a video for Blood and Chaos.

The song is lifted from their new album, 'Medusa', which is due to arrive on September 1 through Nuclear Blast, while the 7" single of the track is out today.

Discussing the video, director Ash Pears said:

"The track talks about elements of savagery and basic instinct. It felt right to set the video in a dark and dystopian post electrical-blackout world, where those who remain are essentially scavengers, and barely survivors. Things they once took for granted like batteries, matches and lighters are now the most sought after. This confusing new world has quickly turned upside down what's important to our character; and also makes him question what he would kill for. Our fantastic lead actor Nick Lester fully threw himself at this role - he really brought it to life alongside his collaborations with our other very talented actors Adele, Cris and Matt.

The band and their team have been very supportive. I've shot with them before on a performance for 'Beneath Broken Earth', but this narrative-based video is an entirely different animal.

They are the kind of band who know what they like but equally give great freedom in how to bring the track to life. It was Nick and Greg who offered advice on the idea of savagery and basic instinct, so I took those ideas and developed them into a story." 

The Yorkshire doom quartet have lined up a headline London show at the Electric Ballroom in Camden on November 3 and a set at Leeds' Damnation Festival the following day, as part of a wider European tour. 

Paradise Lost Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows:

Fri November 03 2017 - LONDON Electric Ballroom
