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 :)
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.
