Gothic metallers PARADISE LOST have now revealed the cover artwork for their much anticipated new studio album, Tragic Idol, set to be released on April 23rd in Europe and April 24th in North America via Century Media Records. Named one of Decibel Magazine’s “Top 25 Most Anticipated Albums of 2012″, Tragic Idol features artwork designed by Parisian artist Valnoir (www.metastazis.com), who has not only worked on this band’s release, but also with artists such as MORBID ANGEL, LAIBACH, ULVER, WATAIN, and more than 150 others.
Furthermore, the band will be touring the UK this April, performing tracks from their forthcoming album Tragic Idol. To celebrate the event, PARADISE LOST will have a very limited number of VIP tickets available (10 per show), which you can purchase online from the band’s official website! In regards to this tour, vocalist Nick Holmes comments: “This is a pretty extensive UK tour for us, I’m speechless and excited. It’s nice to know there’s a WH Smith in every town we play.”
