Paranoid Visions are an infamous punk band from Dublin, Ireland who formed in 1982.[2] They broke up in 1992, had reunion shows and eventually decided to reunite. The band ran their own label, F.O.A.D. (Fuck Off And Die), during the 80s and 90s.[3][4] The label was based in Dublin and run by guitarist, P.A. as is the bulk of their current administration to date.[5] In 1987, the band started the FOAD2U2 campaign (meaning Fuck off and die to U2). These letters could be seen sprayed all over Dublin at the time.[citation needed] Their EP, I Will Wallow is a parody of U2's album, Boy, and their single "I Will Follow".[6] In January 2009, the band announced they would be releasing a new album, Beware of the God.[7] This will be the first album which features new member Steo Pain.[7] In 2012, following the release of an additional 3 ep's, the band released the critically acclaimed and commercially successful "escape from the austerity complex" album.

In November 2013, the band are set to release a new album, featuring Steve Ignorant (Of the band Crass) as a guest vocalist.
