“We took the album title from the song of the same name” explains vocalist/guitarist Garrett Dale. “Which is about finding your own paradise – even if that’s just a hard journey you’re going to take. That’s what paradise means to me – a paradise of the mind, finding truth and peace and love through your honest, horrible realities. It’s all how you look at it, all perception. Paradise can even be a prison if you look at it that way”.
“It’s this internal state that you find within yourself”, agrees guitarist Ryan Donovan. “Within your own journey, within your own reconciliations with your own demons or even just finding peace inside in whatever it is that you love in whatever capacity. People find paradise in just sitting at home on the couch with their dog or cat, people find paradise writing music, people find paradise painting or reading. It’s all kind of conceptual and internalized”.
