Special Feature
Double Echo
Introducing a new band to the pages and airwaves of Gothic Paradise. Bridging a divide of over 5,000 miles, the duo of Chris Luna and Ash Lerczak have come together to form this excellent post-punk band. Ash Lerczak is well known as "Doc Horror" from the Liverpool-based horror-punk band Zombina and the Skeletones, a definite favorite for readers and listeners here on Gothic Paradise. He has teamed up with San Diego-based Chris Luna and together they formed Double Echo in late 2012. They released a couple of short EP's and came out with their debut album in June, 2013 titled Phantomime. In between everything else they've managed to continue to create great music with a release of another 3-track EP Life Inside / Rupture / Sylvia in early 2014. With the release of this short EP, it is with great pleasure that we feature this new project here on Gothic Paradise.

Gothic Paradise Radio
Once in a while we like to remind our readers about our two radio shows. Because we know that people have diverse tastes and moods, you don't always want to hear some dark and dreamy ethereal followed by somehard-hitting industrial sounds. But at the same time we still enjoy all of these broad ranges of genres and music. So to provide a great selection without giving our listeners too much whiplash we provide two separate radio shows to choose from. Our Club Mix is a mix of great, mostly dance-friendly music, but all upbeat and varied across various EBM, Industrial, Gothic Rock and Darkwave music. We also span several decades as we know that music from Joy Division mixes great with brand new music from The Exploding Boy or some classics from Skinny Puppy mix great with the latest from Dead When I Found Her. So you'll find the best music from all the great eras of goth/industrial music as we try to help it to keep going strong.

Our focus on our two radio shows remains strong and they have been doing great again this year as we continue going strong bringing only the best music to our listeners. For most of the past several months we've been sitting at #3 and #4 out of hundreds of shows on Live365 in the goth/industrial genres. Download the latest live365 app and listen to our radio show on the go on your iPhone, Android, iPod or other wifi or wireless enabled devices. We'll keep the great new music coming and you just keep listening!

If you enjoy our radio shows, please consider donating and/or signing up as a Live365 VIP listener. Every minute you listen as a VIP listener directly supports our radio shows.
