Paradise Lost Premiere “Blood & Chaos” Music Video


Paradise Lost have debuted the Ash Pears directed music video for their new single “Blood & Chaos“. A limited edition 7” featuring that song and the track “Symbolic Virtue” which is out now overseas and is set for an August 11th release in North America. You can pre-order it here. You can also get a free download of “Symbolic Virtue” for signing up for the band’s mailing list. Speaking of the video, Pears offered:

“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.”

Paradise Lost‘s new album “Medusa” will be released on September 01st.
