US Dark Rock trio Palaye Royale have shared a new track, ‘Nightmares In Paradise’, which features on the soundtrack of the TV series, ‘Paradise City’.
The track was the original version of the song ‘Nightmares’ from the band’s 2020 full-length, ‘The Bastards’, as frontman Remington Leith explains.
“This was the actual original version of the song “Nightmares” before we decided to take it in a different direction for The Bastards release. You can see where our heads were first at. This song is about trying to make the best of fighting off your demons and embracing the issues you have and wearing them on your sleeve.”
Check out ‘Nightmares In Paradise’ below.
Paradise City, the TV series is available to watch via Amazon Prime.
Paradise City, the upcoming spin-off of the film American Satan starring Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack and Asking Alexandria’s Ben Cruce, is set to premiere on Amazon Prime on March 25th 2021.
Much like with the movie, The Relentless, the band the whole series revolves around,provide some tracks of their own once more. One of those tracks is a cover of The Smashing Pumpkins’ ‘Disarm’.
Now the reason they use Remington Leith’s voice? As I understand it all because of legal issues in that the label Andy and Black Veil Brides are signed to own the likeness to his singing voice and therefore he can’t sing in the show and thus Rem of Palaye Royale came in for those duties. Crazy right?
The first trailer for Paradise City, the spin off TV series of the film American Satan has landed. The series features Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack and Asking Alexandria’s Ben Bruce showing off their acting chops – is based on “the lives of a rock star with ties to the occult and a young rookie kid who idolises him collide through their broken homes built by the music business”.
The series is set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video in March.
Creator, writer and director Ash Avildsen (who also founded Sumerian Records) reveals of Paradise City in a director’s note: “More than one in four American kids grow up without a father in their home.
“For kids that grow up with one parent, you can go on one of two paths: you can blame the world, your parents, blame God, blame lack of God, or it can light a fire under you that you’re gonna make it no matter what. Paradise City is the show made to inspire these millions of teenagers and young adults. It reminds us that there is no light without darkness, that sorrow and heartbreak can be the greatest drivers of art. It reminds us that there is always hope, that you are never alone and that music is always there if you let it be.
“Almost everything in Paradise City is inspired by real events I have experienced growing up in an unorthodox single mom household as a kid estranged from his famous father and then my adult life becoming self-made in the ruthless music industry. Supernatural elements that have guided and misguided my life ever since moving to Los Angeles are also prevalent throughout the tale.”
Joining Andy and Ben in the star-studded show are fellow rock and metal artists like Slipknot’s Sid Wilson, Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe and Sleeping With Sirens’ Kellin Quinn, while other members of the cast include Cameron Boyce, Bella Thorne, Drea De Matteo, Mark Boone Jr, Fairuza Balk and BooBoo Stewart.
