Formed by singer/pianist Margarita Monet and guitarist Dave Bates in 2011, Los Angeles based EDGE OF PARADISE has made a name for themselves in the metal scene with the release of well-received independent albums and heavy touring both nationally and internationally. Their new album, and first for Frontiers, Universe was produced by Mike Plotnikoff (HALESTORM, THREE DAYS GRACE) and mixed by Jacob Hansen (AMARANTHE, VOLBEAT, PRETTY MAIDS). Universe brings together a symphonic and classic metal approach with more contemporary sounds like industrial and electronic influences.

The first single, which is the title track of Universe has been released today. Watch the music video for it on KNAC.COM HERE.

"With this album, we set out to create something that would transport you to another world, music that transcends time and space and takes you on an epic ride through our Universe! The songs are about shattering your fears, testing your limits, and going after your passions at the speed of light, holding on to our humanity and supporting one another as we enter our insane digital future together. Musically, the songs hit you with a cosmic wall of sound, supersonic energy with massive industrial and symphonic textures. We were very lucky to have the best production team for this album as Mike Plotnikoff and Jacob Hansen helped capture our vision perfectly," says vocalist Margarita Monet.

Coinciding with the release of Universe, EDGE OF PARADISE is already confirmed to appear as direct support to SONATA ARCTICA in November - December 2019 on their upcoming European headline run. The band will tour extensively through 2020 in support of the album as well, with more touring announcements imminent.

"We are beyond excited to bring our show to European audiences! The sheer power and energy of these songs are electrifying live and we can't wait to share our Universe with everyone, so come to the show and let's forget the outside world for a moment and get lost in another dimension together," says Monet.

After the band’s debut album Mask, which was released independently in 2012, the band released their sophomore album Immortal Waltz in 2015, produced by the legendary Michael Wagener (DOKKEN, ACCEPT, SKID ROW).

On March 10, 2017 EDGE OF PARADISE released a 5 song EP Alive. Produced by Chuck Johnson (KORN, SLIPKNOT) and mixed by Jay Ruston, Mike Plotnikoff and Michael Wagener, Alive landed on the Billboard Top 100 New Artist Albums and Current Rock Album charts, while also reaching #1 on Amazon’s rock charts, and breaking the top 40 of iTunes hard rock/metal albums charts. The EP received rave reviews and California's biggest rock station KLOS supported the song "Shade Of Crazy".

Loudwire premiered the band's music video "Mystery" and it stayed in the Top 5 videos on Loudwire's Battle Royal for 10 weeks in a row. In this time, the band also made their international debut at Femme Festival in Holland and headed to Japan for the first time.
