Hey there everyone at A Music Blog, Yea?. This is Pete Mac from Irish Alternative Rock band Paradox. We just released our 4th album to date titled ‘Chapters’ which has been a year and 4 months in the making and we’re happy to finally have it out for the world to hear, love, hate, or judge :) The band was formed back in 1997 here in Cork, Ireland by myself and my brother Mike. We both grew up listening to different kinds of music with Mike who is older listening to the likes of Guns n Roses and 80’s metal and myself discovering music after hearing Nirvana for the first time at the age of 10. Our earlier sound was heavily influenced by everything coming out of Seattle from Alice in Chains and Soundgarden to Nirvana and Pearl Jam. Over the years our influences have ranged from the likes of Jeff Buckley and Elliott Smith to PJ Harvey and Cat Power and this has been reflected in the albums we’ve released at that time.
Our drummer Mike is currently based in Canada so we do plan on touring Canada at some stage with Mike possibly starting in Calgary and from there across to Vancouver. We are hoping we can make this happen sometime later this year to coincide with the new album.
For now happy listening and cheers from Ireland.
