As Paradise Falls’ new full-length album Digital Ritual will be out July 21, 2017 via US label Eclipse Records and today they reveal new track from the record, “The Ultimate Consumer.”
The lead-in to this album has not been easy, but with positive goings-on such as multiple tracks added to Spotify Australia’s Homegrown & Heavy playlist, their video for Star Blind premiered on UK’s Metal Hammer website and Heavy Mag saying that the album is “Undulated with power, passion and metal mastery, As Paradise Falls do themselves proud with Digital Ritual” – the band’s fire and passion has been stoked all along the way.
Vocalist for the Brisbane metal outfit, Shaun Coar, mused that “The song is about how people fall into destructive behaviour patterns. Particularly with the way we consume everything thru media in this day in age. A lot of people are borderline addicted to their phones and the amount of data we consume per year grows exponentially. It’s having a trickle down effect culturally and on a personal level. Literally everything needs to be at your fingertips otherwise it cannot survive. The problem is great things don’t just happen instantly.”
APF are embarking on a tour through August and September to celebrate the record – and are also today announcing the supports. Brisbane’s Crowbar show gets Down Royale (their Final Show ever), Zeolite (TAS), Caetera and Setmeonfire (NSW), Adelaide’s show at Enigma Bar will see Valhalla, Beyond These Waters and Temple Of Athena, Melbourne’s BANG show is a split affair with APF and Mirrors on early, then a late show with Trash Boat (UK) and Between Me & You, and Sydney’s The Bald Faced Stag sees Oh/Villain, Isotopes, Setmeonfire and Above, Below.
‘Digital Ritual’ is already available for pre-order via iTunes and Amazon. Either option comes with the songs “StarBlind” and “Digital Ritual” as instant grat tracks! The album is also available to pre-order via Google Play. The single ‘Dead Message’ is already streaming via Spotify, Apple Music, and Deezer.
