The new single from Dead Poets Society, “Apoplexy,” delves into the maw of madness. Eurydice, filled with hope and innocence in the moments after wedding her beloved, Orpheus, the son of Apollo, is chased by her husband’s drunken, lust-filled cousin, Aristeus, son of Dionysius. Aristeus falls upon Eurydice, violating her, and throws her body from the jagged cliffs of Thrace onto the seashore below. As the waves lap at her broken form, Orpheus discovers his love and collapses into grief and madness, anguish, and Apoplexy.

In this soul-rending instrumental track, Dead Poets Society gives us a chilling and rage-filled look into grief, loss, and pain.
