I caught up with Edge Of Paradise vocalist Margarita Monet to talk about the latest singles “Digital Paradise” and “My Method Your Madness“, touring plans, the Forthcoming 4th studio album “The Unknown” and a whole lot more.
The upcoming album, “The Unknown,” is Edge Of Paradise’s fourth studio album, coming on the heels of their well-received third album and Frontiers Music Srl debut, “Universe.” The band teamed up with renowned producer Howard Benson (Halestorm, Seether, Black Stone Cherry, etc.). Together with Mike Plotnikoff (Halestorm, Three Days Grace) and Neil Sanderson (Three Days Grace), he helped the band craft their biggest-sounding album. Edge of Paradise’s founding members, vocalist/pianist/keyboardist Margarita Monet and guitarist Dave Bates, have found their perfect partners in crime with drummer Jamie Moreno and bassist Ricky Bonazza (Butcher Babies) The band, tighter than ever, is ready to blow everyone away once they are back on the road with this stunning new music in tow. Current plans are for the band to tour extensively through 2022 in support of “The Unknown”. After the band’s debut album “Mask,” released independently in 2012. The band released their sophomore album “Immortal Waltz” in 2015, produced by the legendary Michael Wagener (Dokken, Accept, Skid Row). In March 2017, Edge Of Paradise released a five-song EP, “Alive,” produced by Chuck Johnson (Korn, Slipknot) and mixed by Jay Ruston, Mike Plotnikoff, and Michael Wagener. The band then signed with Frontiers Music Srl to release their third album, “Universe” (November 2019), which saw them achieve well over one million streams on Spotify for the album’s lead single, the title track. The band also enjoyed a successful European tour with Sonata Arctica at the end of 2019. While home preparing for multiple tours to support the album in 2020, the global pandemic hit and the band’s touring plans were sidelined. When it became evident that touring likely wouldn’t be in the cards, the band set themselves to writing music for what would ultimately become their fourth album, “The Unknown.”
