Born Of Osiris announced this week that bassist David Darocha is stepping down from the band, but it's not all bummer news from the group this week. Born Of Osiris has now announced their new album The Simulation to be out January 11 and are streaming a new song called "The Accursed" above.
Here's what guitarist Lee McKinney had to say.
“The first single and video for ‘The Accursed‘ plays exactly off of the album titles and themes. People are stuck and addicted to machines, social media, virtual realities and anything that creates a life or reality that’s not their own. Our phones have become an extension of ourselves, a body part. We play games or throw on virtual headsets that literally suck us out of the reality we live and into a fantasy. What’s the future going to look like, a simulation? Could the simulation have already begun?
Also, this new album keeps the integrity high across the board. I want to make the best songs I could for the people who are listening (and myself), and I want to perform them to their best ability on stage to give the people attending our shows those ‘wow’ moments. We want to give them those concert memories that’ll last a lifetime.”
Alright, so here's my question about The Simulation. McKinney recently said Born Of Osiris hit the studio again to add three more songs to the existing 10 songs for The Simulation, but the final track list only has eight songs on it, including the previously-released "Silence The Echo." So are they planning an EP to go along with the record? Or did five songs just get cut?
