Eclipse Records is thrilled to announce the signing of PARALINE to an exclusive worldwide deal! The alternative rock band create a spectacular genre-defying fusion of insightful lyrics and haunting melodies that carry a profound and symbolic undertone denouncing totalitarianism, imperialism, and barbarism. The band features Leo “Light” Andersen on Lead Vocals & Guitar, Kirill Langley on Lead Guitar, Alex Shustoff on Bass Guitar, and Kirill Pargin on drums, and they are currently preparing for the release of their new EP album Sound Weapon which is scheduled for release on March 1, 2024 via Eclipse Records.
To top things off, the band’s new single entitled “1999” is available everywhere now (listen here). The song was created against the backdrop of anti-war sentiment, particularly in light of the conflict in Ukraine. This song carries a profound and symbolic condemnation of dictators and the cruelty of imperialism. Musically, this is a powerful statement that will resonate in the heart and the spine.
“This album is truly a palette of colors of an entire era and a big chapter of our lives,” says front man Leo “Light” Andersen. “Its making was like overcoming large waves hitting you when you trying to swim away from the island. It is always difficult for a band to release their first album, not only as a team but for each member in particular. Against the background of all the events in the world that affected everyone, we created our ‘box’, it was filled with emotions from what we experienced during this period. Now it’s your turn to find out ‘what’s in the box.” Bassist Alex Shustoff adds, “We went through a lot while making “Sound Weapon”. I believe there is a precise line between our music and our lives, dividing them into “before” and “after” this album. I wouldn’t want to relive the events in which it was recorded, but what we learned from that experience, this album is wonderful. Many thanks to Eclipse Records for the opportunity to share such strong and contradictory emotions with listeners.”
The new album titled Sound Weapon by alternative rock band Paraline is a battle cry straight from the soul. Packed into a military box featured on the album cover, this “weapon” thematically explores the glory and tragedy of mirrored duality through its music: parallel lines symmetrically perfect yet never connecting, like the brothers in the band, one playing foil for the other and visa versa until nothing is left but raw truth. Musically, the groove is the key to the cages of the lockup. The regal guitars open the war-chest, and the vocals are a smooth and lustrous searchlight chasing fear to the shadows and demons back into their snake pits. Plainly, the band takes rock music to a new level. The lyrics, interpreted literally, explore the chains and shackles of society, friends gone wrong, politics and relationships, and denials leading to emptiness. Moreso, however, this album is an epic example of what is most coveted in any artform. Sound Weapon is a sketchbook for the listener’s past and a launching pad for unrequited, bold imagination. Whether you see heaven, cold hell, the dazzling skin of the sun, or a sinister mist underneath a low moon, this record paints pictures that celebrate your journey and make your mystery rich and immortal. Now it is your turn to find out – what is in the box.
