Alt Rock brethren, Palaye Royale, have shared “Nightmares In Paradise“, a remix of their previously released track “Nightmares” that features on their 2020 album, ‘The Bastards‘ and recorded exclusively for the official soundtrack of recently released hit TV Series, Paradise City. Listen to the track on streaming platforms here. Paradise City was released digitally last week and immediately shot to the #1 spots on All Shows on Amazon Prime, All Shows on iTunes, Drama and Trending TV on Fandango and #2 Drama on Google Play.
Speaking on his band’s new release, Palaye Royale frontman, Remington Leith (who also provided all the vocals for the show’s main protagonist, Johnny Faust and his band, The Relentless) says: “This was the actual original version of the song “Nightmares” before we decided to take it in a different direction for ‘The Bastards‘ release. You can see where our heads were first at. This song is about trying to make the best of fighting off your demons and embracing the issues you have and wearing them on your sleeve.”
Paradise City, premiered on Amazon Prime Video on March 25th. Set in Los Angeles, Paradise City chronicles the lives of rock star and frontman of The Relentless, Johnny Faust and a young rookie kid, Simon, who idolizes him as they collide through their broken homes built by the music business.
