“The meaning of Captain Hero is that life is finite, and it is ultimately pointless despite the value we attribute to it”, says guitarist Danny Kenneally. “The more you try to hold onto it the more time you waste and edge closer to the end. With that in mind, why not have fun living your life and be the real you? This video had no meaning, which in turn ties into the foundations of the song. It’s basically just us having some fun… just an exaggeration of an altered state of ourselves and our personalities. We are here to entertain and make you ask yourself why are you taking yourself so seriously when you can be you and have fun.”
Madness / Medicine by As Paradise Falls is a 5 track EP that will defy what a two-piece band is capable of. With the influence of this modern Grime & Hip-Hop, old-school Deathcore and a futuristic look on how their music should be perceived, the band teamed up with longtime friend & producer Shane Edwards (Northlane, Trophy Eyes, Hellions) at Studio 28 in Thailand where the 5 tracks were transformed into a modern-day monster. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Danny was unable to travel for the mixing/mastering process and resorted to utilizing Facetime and streaming from his home studio to assist with the final process of the EP.
