PAUL DILLON (EX MERCURY REV/LONGWAVE) NEW ALBUM;
MIRACLE FALLS 'DEBASEMENT TAPES'
RE-RELEASED JANUARY 22ND 2013

Paul Dillon has done a lot in his years on this side of the Atlantic, working and touring with many of the best 'psych/shoegaze' acts around including Sparklehorse, Longwave and Mercury Rev.

Moving to Chicago from Dublin at 18, Paul met up with with Jimi Shields of Rollerskate Skinny fame, joining him on guitar in his new project Lotus Crown. The band was soon signed to Warner/Reprise Records and, with their debut album, 'Chokin' On The Jokes', produced by Dave Fridman, (Mercury Rev, Flaming Lips , MGMT etc.), embarked on US and UK tours, opening for The Flaming Lips and Dinosaur Jr.

After the breakup of the band, Paul relocated to New York City, subsidizing Lower East Side DJ gigs with a job at Kim's Records on St. Marks and continued writing and recording at home, inbetween tours as a guitar tech for the likes of Sparklehorse, Yo La Tengo and Ray Davies.

In 2001, Paul joined Mercury Rev on their world tour in support of 'All Is Dream', the follow up to their critically acclaimed 'Deserter's Songs' album, but subsequently left to focus on his own project, Silver Rockets. He continued touring as a session musician with acts such as Longwave, Favourite Sons and Metric's Emily Haines for her solo album 'Knives Don't Have Your Back'. Most recently, Paul joined Sparklehorse for the recording sessions of their as-yet-unreleased final album, which was produced by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio.

MIRACLE FALLS - 'Debasement Tapes' was recorded at Revolver Studios in Portland, Oregon, and includes guest appearances from Collin Hegna, (The Brian Jonestown Massacre), Pete Holmstrom, (The Dandy Warhols), Jason 'Plucky' Anchondo, (The Warlocks), Jeff Mercel and Grasshopper, (Mercury Rev). This criminally overlooked album, which was made available through iTunes this past fall, will be re-released later this month.
