*The Following Press Release Was Issued By Wild Punk Records*
PARADOX VOL. 1 (New Album) Wild Punk Records | 21 05 2021
The Tragic Company’s band members come from different provinces in Southern Spain: Granada and Málaga. The project has been going on since 2008, but the current lineup has been together for around five years. During this time, there’s been an evolution to harder sounds that were already hinted on their second album ‘Enigma Of The Soul’ (2016), but it is on this latest period where we find their music going a step further in terms of musical and creative maturity. This resulted in the birth of ‘Paradox Vol. I.’
2020 was going to see the release of the new album, divided into two different and separate parts, sharing the same essence. ‘Paradox Vol. I’ and ‘Paradox Vol. II’ would be released in 2020 and 2021, but due to reasons that need no explanation, all this had to be rescheduled.
For this alternative metal band, it was important not to have a blank year, so ‘Paradox Vol. I’ has been dispensed through several singles with a matching videoclip each one. The first one was ‘Rotten,’ released in July during the first wave of Covid. A 7’15’’ minutes track of pure Tool essence with a very clear progressive direction. It’s had great repercusion among international media. Little after, ‘Without You’ arrived, with a more 90s-driven vibe. It also had a good impact on radios and online platforms around the world. It had a vampire-themed videoclip. ‘Breaking Down The Mirror’ was the new single. It has a powerful guitar riff, a nice melodic chorus and a bit of electronic samples on it. It came with a matching studio official videoclip.
Paradox Vol. I is the new path. That’s why they wanted to call it Vol. I, as is the new one of the new era for the band. It contains eight tracks in total, seven of them are originals (six new ones and a new reworked unplugged version of ‘Help Me,’ a song from their previous album) and a surprising reinterpretation of Phil Collins classic ‘Another Day in Paradise.’ The focus track is called ‘Leave it All Behind.’ A Mid-Tempo ballad with a very catchy singalong chorus, with The Tragic Company’s powerful attitude.
‘Paradox Vol. I’ has been recorded at Green Cross Studio by Guillermo Ruiz and Jesíus Gómez ‘Trikel’, in Málaga and in Hermes#1 in Granada. Mixed by Jesús Gómez and Juanma Medina. Mastering by Paco Requena at PRMastering.
‘Leave it All Behind’ videoclip produced by El Páramo.
