As Paradise Falls Releases “Dead Message” Video

Brisbane’s As Paradise Falls today releases a music video for the song “Dead Message,” taken from upcoming full-length album “Digital Ritual.” The video was produced by Ben Wrigley at Third Eye Visuals, and the album was produced by Shane Edwards (Northlane, Thy Art Is Murder).

“This song explores communication in the digital age, and how so many interactions between friends occur online” states guitarist Danny Kenneally. “Digital communication lives in a strange duality of being so vital, while at other times being flippantly disregarded the minute it doesn’t meet our interests. Do we prefer isolation and are we bored with humanity, or are we just becoming lazy?”

“Digital Ritual” drops on July 21st and As Paradise Falls fans in Australia can also catch these upcoming tour dates:

July 1 – Fortitude Valley @ The Brightside w/ A Breach of Silence
July 29 – Brisbane, QLD @ Jubilee Hotel w/ Dead of Winter Fest
August 19 – Brisbane @ Crowbar
September 1 – Adelaide @ Enigma Bar
September 2 – Melbourne @ BANG
September 9 – Sydney @ The Bald Faced Stag
