Official press release: Gothic metal pioneers Paradise Lost and Century Media Records are proud to announce the band's worldwide signing to the record label. In a career that has spanned over 17 years, Paradise Lost have sold a staggering two million albums worldwide. European Label Manager Antje Lange commented on the signing, "We feel very honored to welcome Paradise Lost to The Century Family. Paradise Lost are an extremely influential band with the creative potential for a very bright future. As their new record label, we look forward to working to expand their global fan base." After reviewing several offers, Paradise Lost chose to sign to Century Media worldwide. Vocalist Nick Holmes states, "It's great to be on a label with so many metal bands and such a heritage. This worldwide deal will give us a chance to have a crack at the U.S." GUN/Sony/BMG in Europe and Abacus Recordings in the U.K. and the U.S released the band's last album "Paradise Lost." Century Media Records will be re-releasing the album in the U.K. and U.S. Currently in pre-production with producer Rhys Fulber for their as of yet unnamed 11th album, the band will embark on a U.K. tour with Opeth in November. After the live dates, the band is planning to record their new album in Bradford, Lincolnshire and Canada in late November/December with a release tentatively scheduled for spring 2007.

Thats pretty cool, but kinda pointless like signing Megadeth to Roadrunner!

One of the best bands ever. Even the Depeche Mode rip-off stuff is good.

Draconian Times is amazing. You nay sayer gays have no clue what you're talking about. This probably some of the best news of the year. Hopefully Century Media will reissue their entire catalog in the US.
