Many didn't understand the depths of the themes which were explored on our 2002 release.
We saw a scary future then...one where technology dictated our relationships and controlled our minds, not unlike the visions presented in classic dystopian works by Orwell, Huxley, Zamyatin, and others...
As it turns out, the vision we saw of the future is eerily similar to our 2020 present.
Our reality in 2002 was an experience of mind control in another form...artistic corporate oppression from a major label conglomerate who sought to silence our hearts and replace them with marketable choruses. Truthless Heroes was our sacrificial lamb, for better or worse.
We cannot rewrite history...nor do we seek to. The past and its regrets have long-since been exorcised. But we cannot help but contemplate what might have been...
Imagine with us what would have happened if this Spofity playlist was the tracklisting for our third album. If we led with Spy Hunter-a song that was inexplicably cut from the album-how would the groundswell have differed? Might the confusion of those who clung to DBL as their anthemic treatise translated into a new chapter of defiance against the powers who oppress us all?
Imagine...just for a moment and give it a listen with an open mind.
