Paradox will join fellow Cork band Screenreader for a second outing at The Crane Lane Theatre in Cork on Wednesday November 27th. Late show kicking off at 11.30pm. Both bands previously played together last March as part of the 'Where is the Alternative' at the Crane Lane which included Screenreader drummer Andy playing for the Paradox set and some double bass action for Screenreader with Paradox bassist Jette jumping up as a second bass player for their last song as well as Pete playing guitar. Sean Conway will be drumming this time around for Paradox. We'll see what happens :) Screenreader :: Cork band Screenreader came into being with the release of their debut album “Disconnect the Dots” in January 2012. Burning a trail from start to finish with mechanical samples, high-impact dynamics and fuzzed up electronic textures, the album has received high praise from critics as well as a quickly growing fan base, resulting in consistent national radio airplay from the likes of 2fm’s Dave Fanning and Dan Hegarty, along with airplay from regional and local radio stations.The band also played a slot at the Indiependence festival in 2012. 2013 has seen Screenreader record a live session for 2FM as well as hitting the road to play live as often as possible. The band will also be following up their 2012 debut album with further recordings in the coming year to capture what they’ve discovered about themselves as a band while working. Paradox :: Paradox are an Alternative Rock/Grunge Outfit from Cork. Formed in 1996 by brothers Pete Mac and Mike Mac the early Paradox sound was heavily influenced by the Grunge Era of the 90's.Paradox have released 3 studio albums to date.

Pete Mac also recorded and released a solo album titled 'In Limbo' in 2009. Paradox have toured both Europe and the US and have built a steady fanbase worldwide from CD and download sales, their prominent internet presence and in particular word of mouth. In 2012 the 'Corporate Pollution' track 'Repress Excess' was used on the soundtrack for Canadian horror movie 'Truth' which screened at the Cannes Film Festival and also won the Royal Reel Award at the Canadian International Film Festival 2013. The band also shot a music video for 'Mr. Bureaucracy' which was nominated for best song at the Berlin Music Video Awards in 2013. The video was also nominated at the Portobello Film Festival in London and the Dublin International Short Film and Music Festival this year. Paradox have also recently supported the likes of Therapy? and Kerbdog.
Paradox are happy to announce they will be supporting Irish 90's Alternative Rock/Grunge legends Kerbdog on Sunday October 27th at Cyprus Avenue in Cork. Kerbdog was formed in 1991 by Cormac Battle (vocals/guitar), Colin Fennelly (bass guitar) and Darragh Butler (drums) In early 1993, Kerbdog signed with Mercury Records subsidiary Vertigo Records. That summer, Kerbdog recorded their self-titled debut album. The album was produced by Jack Endino, who helped cement the Seattle grunge sound along with sub pop. Whilst recording, Kerbdog were also planning a major tour of the British clubs. In early 1996, the Mercury Music Group was bought over by PolyGram Records, and Kerbdog shifted to Fontana Records, Vertigo's sister label at PolyGram. That spring, the band returned to the recording studio to work on their second album. Produced by GGGarth, On The Turn was recorded in Los Angeles.In late 1996, the band recorded a session for Dave Fanning's show on 2FM RTÉ radio. Tracks recorded were ‘Sally’, ‘Hard To Live’, ‘Mexican Wave’ and ‘Secure’. Music magazines such as Kerrang! and Metal Hammer praised both Kerbdog's albums and featured them frequently, Kerrang! 's editor spent a weekend with the band in Kilkenny. The album was repeatedly delayed before being released in the UK in March 1997. It sold poorly, their record label dropped the band, and their back catalog was deleted in 1997. The band soldiered on without a record label for about a year, but eventually disbanded and played their final gig at the Mean Fiddler, in Temple Bar, Dublin on 7 March 1998. Kerbdog reformed in 2005. They played several gigs in Ireland that year, most notably two sell-out concerts in February at the Temple Bar Music Centre, Dublin, followed by a set at the Oxegen music festival in July. Kerbdog have continued to play occasional one-off shows, including a sellout at Cyprus Avenue last year. Throughout the 90's Alternative music scene Kerbdog held the flag for Ireland as being a valid part of this scene and Paradox are delighted to be sharing the stage with this band :) See you guys at the show!
