Paradise Lost launch lyric video for The Longest Winter

Paradise Lost release lyric video for their new track The Longest Winter - taken from upcoming album Medusa

Paradise Lost have released a lyric video for their brand new track The Longest Winter.

The song will feature on the UK outfit’s upcoming album Medusa, which is set to arrive on September 1 via Nuclear Blast. It’ll be their 15th studio album and their first since 2015’s The Plague Within.

Explaining the background to the track, frontman Nick Holmes says: “I read a story about how wildlife was once beginning to flourish in the 30-mile exclusion zone after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 – particularly the wolf population.

“It was nice to think that that no matter how much mankind tried to fuck the planet up directly or indirectly, life carries on in some shape or form. But humans are humans and I recently heard that there is already now 'timed' hunting trips organised into the exclusion zone.”

Pre-orders for Medusa get under way today (July 7) and it’s now available in a variety of bundles, including t-shirt and hoodie packs, a collector’s box set edition and coloured vinyl.

Paradise Lost will play the Athens Rockwave festival in Greece today which will be followed by further live shows throughout the rest of the year.
