Formed in Dublin in 1981, Paranoid Visions quickly allied themselves to the anarcho punk fraternity of the second wave of punk rock in the early 80's. Heavily influenced by the Crass ethic of DIY music, the band formed their own F.O.A.D label and licensed their records to All The Madmen, home of the Mob, Thatcher on Acid, Blyth Power and the Astronauts.
Paranoid Visons played gigs and toured with the likes of Poison Girls, DIRT, Blyth Power, Subhumans and The Instigators. In the early 90's they played with bands like Snuff, the Macc Ladds and Manic Street Preachers before calling it a day in 1992. Despite their disbanding, the 90's saw Paranoid Visions becoming the biggest punk band Ireland had ever produced, featuring on several TV shows, newspapers and being offered numerous record deals from Major labels. In 1996 they reformed to play support on some dates for the Sex Pistols Filthy Lucre tour. In 2001 they reformed again and played with the Damned, The Dickies and at the Wasted Festival in Morecombe. While these reunions were always designed to be short lived, with the 2005 reunion, formed in support of the re-release of their back catalogue, it was decided to continue the momentum.
March 2007 saw the release of the album "40 SHADES OF GANGREEN", the first new material for 16 years. The run up to this release saw the band playing 35 dates with bands such as The Levellers, The Damned and Sonic Boom Six as well as 25 UK and Ireland headline slots.
Since 2007 the band has been consistently gathering momentum, with a fixed line-up, to include regular gigs in Ireland, UK, USA and Europe (with bands suck as The Lurkers, Subhumans, GBH and Goldblade), Rebellion and Punx Picnic, the release of 'The Treasure From The Wasteland EP' (2008), singles 'I Am The One - 1970sICK EP' and 'Strobelight And Torture' (2009), album 'Beware Of The God' (2009), plus a series of 'Hate From The Cities' and 'Live In Fibbers' compilations. There have been several appearances including two feature films ('3Crosses' and 'Little Foxes'), the Podge & Rodge Show for RTE Television, and radio sessions for Phantom and 2FM. This has all been supported with much national press coverage and includes extensive interviews with State Magazine, Hot Press and The Big Cheese.
2010 saw the release of a retrospective, 'Black Operations In The Red Mist', which garnered universal praise in countries such as Germany, Japan, USA and Holland.
2011 started with a bang with the announcement of the bands first trip to the USA for 3 highly successful headline shows and the release of the "Der Election EP" which became the first Irish punk record to hit the national charts in 30 years, debuting at number 6, one place above Take That and one behind JLS and Tiny Tempah!!!! The band are currently completing their new album, entitled "Hail Tsunmami" for release in 2012 on Overground Records / FOAD. The album will be preceded by a single in November on FOAD (CD) of Outsider Artist (featuring TV Smith) / Control (featuring The Shend) / Prophet For The Lost (featuring The Blame) and 6 live bonus tracks. A 7" version on Inflammable Material / FOAD will be released at the same time as a limited edition.
On November 19th the the band will support Steve Ignorant at his Last (ever) Supper show at the Shepherds Bush Empire in London.
