Veteran Provision members Breye 7x and Jen Kiser were joined in 2009 by Matt Willis of Splendor Projekt, and the result is a full on Industrial Dance assault.
Paradigm Shift includes an 8 page booklet featuring lyrics, color photos, and production notes for 10 new tracks featuring vocals by all 3 band members. Touching on subjects of seduction, control, longing, hope, misery, sloth, apathy, and reflection.
Provision moves into new territory with Paradigm Shift, and fans will sense a darker, edgier feel than in previous Provision albums as a whole.
Paradigm Shift leans more towards Industrial Dance and less towards Synthpop; with harder edged tracks rounding out 8 of the 10 songs featured on this 4th full length L.P. from Provision. Fans will also hear vocals by all 3 band members on this album, with Matt singing backing vocals; and Jen singing both Lead and Backing vocals. Paradigm Shift is the first Provision L.P. since their debut album "Evaporate" to feature vocals from other members than just Breye.
Paradigm Shift sees Provision moving into a new era of the band, as Jen and Matt were involved in more
than half of the writing of the album. The new material and darker feel will definitely show that Matt and Jen's contributions have made a significant impact to the band, and those who have seen Provision live in 2010 and had the chance to hear new tracks such as Waiting, Love Like Machinery, Paradigm Shift, and Crossline; already know what to expect from Provision on their 4th album. It's darker, edgier, and relentless in it's assault of the dancefloor.
