Paradise In Exile Sign With Mannequin Republic

Posted on by Mannequin Republic

Paradise In Exile are now officially under retainer with Mannequin Republic.

Paradise In Exile have been tearing up the Western Australian underground music scene since their debut at the end of 2010.  They are another fine example of a hard working Aussie band, looking to make good in the alternative metal market.

The band recently came across Queensland and New South Wales earlier this year in support of This Fiasco on their mini-tour.  We were very impressed with their dynamic take on the deathcore genre and their ambitious goals for the future.

Currently, they are playing live events in Perth while they focus on writing their debut full length album.  If their first EP, The Liberation, is any indicator, it should be an instant hit with hardcore music fans.
