News : Behind Crimson Eyes release inspiring foreword for new song, ‘Stardust’.

By on October 29, 2017

Melbourne’s Behind Crimson Eyes are set to release their brand new track ‘Stardust’ this week on Friday, 3rd November. Those eagerly awaiting the track can watch the official countdown timer via this link. The band has compiled a short inspirational video to go along with the new material which features Peter Boghossian, a philosophy professor at Portland State University in Colorado. The message is simple…Make it count! A statement that is akin to the words of Eckhart Tolle or Jiddu Krishnamurti. The statement embodies the values of one to become more compassionate and introspective.

Statement from Behind Crimson Eyes:

“It’s been 11 years since we released A Revelation for Despair, and 9 years since we released Self-Titled. A lot has changed in that time; we’ve experienced the joy of new life entering this world, and the sadness of old life leaving it. We’ve witnessed the decline of civil discourse and the rise of extremism. And stood idly by as our pale blue dot continues to warm.

It’s over this period we realised just how fleeting and precious the time we have on this earth is. With that in mind, we decided that Behind Crimson Eyes should serve to inspire people to make a positive impact on the world; to improve the happiness and well-being for everyone, now, and in the future.

To achieve these aims, we teamed up with Dr Peter Boghossian — a philosophy professor at Portland State University in Colorado — to write a foreword, entitled “Make it count”, that embodies these values. It’s our hope that the words of Dr Boghossian inspire people to become more compassionate and introspective.

Make it count marks a new beginning for Behind Crimson Eyes; one of purpose and ambition. We believe this will be the most important and heaviest music we have ever written.”

In addition, Behind Crimson Eyes will be performing at the now sold-out Unify Gathery on January 12th.
