Two years ago, As Paradise Falls tragically lost guitarist Glen Barrie. Fast forward to today, the debut album they began recording back in 2015, Digital Ritual, is finally going to see the light of day. Featuring the producing talents of Shane Edwards (Northlane, Trophy Eyes, Hellions), Digital Ritual is currently set for a summer time release.
“Starblind”, the first single from the upcoming album, proved to be the catalyst of the exclusive worldwide deal Eclipse Records and As Paradise Falls now share. Having been independently released and premiered in the UK by Metal Hammer, it was picked up by Eclipse and everything flowed from there. The video for “Starblind” can be seen below.
Naturally, guitarist Danny Kenneally explains it better here:
On the day the single was released, I got an email from Chris at Eclipse. Chris had previously followed us on Spotify, and we came up on his release radar. When he asked if we had any more material, I told him about the new album and he immediately offered to put it out via Eclipse.
Within a few weeks, the band signed to Eclipse Records and had began preparing for the album’s release. Happy days!
Digital Ritual is set for a summer release. More info will follow soon.
