On 7th November 2011 PARADISE LOST and Century Media Records will release their new “Draconian Times MMXI” DVD. In early 2011 the band performed their monumental album Draconian Times (from 1995) live at a series of 7 exclusive gigs in the following select cities around Europe: Tilburg, Bochum, London, Paris, Athens, and Thessaloniki.
Nick Holmes (vocals) had this to say: “It was great fun doing the DT live shows and the response outshined our expectations by far, all the shows were great, but the London show was a real highlight & thankfully captured on film. Jens Bogren has mixed the songs brilliantly, the extras are fun, and the whole thing has come together tremendously well. We are lucky to have such devoted fans, prepared to travel all over the world to see our shows. This DVD is dedicated to them, and I hope they thoroughly enjoy it!”
“Draconian Times MMXI” features the London show at The Forum on April 1st, a documentary from the whole tour filmed by the band’s bass player Steve Edmondson, interviews about the history of “Draconian Times” with Simon Efemey (producer of Draconian Times, 1995), Nick Holmes (vocals), Greg Mackintosh (guitar), Aaron Aedy (guitar), Steve Edmondson (bass) and Andy Farrow (manager since 1990) and the two promo videos from PARADISE LOST’s latest album “Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us”.
