Paradise Lost Announce “Icon” 30th Anniversary UK Shows


Paradise Lost have announced a pair of shows celebrating the 30th anniversary of their fourth studio album, 1993’s “Icon“. My Dying Bride will be joining them for those shows.

Paradise Lost are also preparing a newly re-recorded version of “Icon” for a release. The band’s vocalist Nick Holmes commented:

“Our specific record deal around the time we signed for the Icon album meant we would never actually own the rights to our music or artwork, so going forward, to reissue the album ourselves for the 30th anniversary, it was necessary to re-record and completely re-do the album cover.

Re-recording Icon has not only enabled us to release it as a series of collectors editions on vinyl but it was also great to revisit some songs from a lifetime ago. Nothing can replace those original recordings or ever will, they are a nostalgic part of all our lives but it has been a lot of fun revisiting those early MFN days once again, and I hope the end result displays that!”

The band’s “Icon” 30th anniversary shows include:

12/01 London, UK – Shepherds Bush Empire
12/14 Bradford, UK – St. George’s
