Goth metal legends Paradise Lost have announced a couple of shows celebrating the 30th anniversary of “Icon“ (1993). My Dying Bride will be joining them for those shows.
Paradise Lost are also re-recording “Icon” for a new release.
Vocalist Nick Holmes comments:
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!
“Icon” 30th anniversary dates include:
Dec 01 London, UK – Shepherds Bush Empire
Dec 14 Bradford, UK – St. George’s
