Official press release:

Returning with opus number fourteen, The Plague Within (due to be released June 1st in Europe, June 2nd in North America), Paradise Lost is once again refining the chemical equation to their sonic alchemy with the kind of creative invincibility few can afford. It's a collection of songs that will surprise even the most seasoned of fans in its ambition: a monochrome miasma of morbidly uplifting anthems and heart-aching melancholia.

In anticipation of this release, the band has now teamed up with DecibelMagazine.com for the premiere of the new video for "Beneath Broken Earth."

Paradise Lost's Greg Mackintosh (lead guitar) comments: "I fucking hate metal band performance videos, so when I got told that we needed to do one I was obviously annoyed but then came the idea to do a performance video of utter misery. The slowest song we have ever recorded. 'Beneath Broken Earth' is an utterly old school Paradise Lost doom/death song, and doing a performance video with our miserable, old faces barely moving in a crappy, old basement was too much to resist. The director Ash has done a great job of capturing the somber mood and has managed to make a performance video we can actually be proud of."
