Paradise Lost have announced some big news on their latest album. First off, it’s got a title – The Plague Within – and it’ll come out on June 2nd in North America (June 1st in Europe) on Century Media Records.

Said vocalist Nick Holmes in a statement;

“We wanted to approach the new album differently this time by embracing the band’s VERY early days. We have written a very dark, yet melodic album, but this time many songs definitely have a death metal edge, which is something we haven’t done for a long long time in PARADISE LOST.”

This will be the bands 14th studio album since forming in 1988, and first since Tragic Idol in 2012. The Plague Within will be recorded in London with Jaimie Gomez Arellano, who has worked with bands like Ghost and Cathedral.
