Canadian rockers Billy Talent have released their first official single, ‘Reckless Paradise’ from their upcoming album. The song showcases the intense riffs and powerful lyrics the band is famous for. With significant, in-depth lyrics like “Your thoughts and prayers can’t fix the pain, ’cause we’re falling down again / Living in a reckless paradise / The house is burning, trapped inside,” it’s no wonder Billy Talent is one of Canada’s most successful bands. ‘Reckless Paradise’ is available for streaming on all platforms, and trust us when we say you have GOT to check it out!
This single follows ‘Forgiveness I + II,’ which was released as a surprise in November. ‘Forgiveness’ quickly climbed into the Top 20 on Canadian radio, despite not being an official single from the band. It was also featured as the music in the first episode of the multi-part short film, featuring UFC superstars Rose Namajunas and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, that Billy Talent will be releasing over the coming months. Check out part one of this series down below!
Billy Talent has sold nearly three million albums internationally, including 1.3 million albums in Germany alone. They have won seven Juno Awards and have been nominated 23 times, including three nods for Afraid of Heights (Group of the Year, Rock Album of the Year, and Ian D’Sa for Producer of the Year). In 2018, the group was honored with a Legends of Live Special Achievement Award presented by Canadian Music Week. In addition, their hometown of Mississauga recently inducted the band to Legends Row, one of the highest honors the city can endow.
Talk about a phenomenal band! We expect 2020 will be another winning year, starting with ‘Reckless Paradise!’
