Dead Poets Society's third album THE BONE ASYLUM is available for pre-order now!

 

 

Dead Poets Society’s third album THE BONE ASYLUM is available now for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon, with the album releasing on September 26th, 2014! Links are available below.

Pre-orders of THE BONE ASYLUM on iTunes receive the song “Karma Factory (the Maenads)” immediately. The rest of the album will be delivered to you on September 26th.

THE BONE ASYLUM tells the story of three couples who live in different eras, but are connected by a recurring tragedy, and asks the question: “Can Olivia Orpheus overcome her tragic destiny?”

THE BONE ASYLUM is a concept album that tells an epic story about love, loss, and grief. It is our most personal album, and is sincerely the one of which we are most proud. When we created Dead Poets Society way back in 1998, this was the album that we had always envisioned crafting.

Dead Poets Society - “Eclipse”, cover design by Jessica Griffin-Conner

At this stage in our story, Olivia Orpheus is wracked with grief after the loss of her lover Alan to terminal cancer. She seeks out answers. She ponders what, or even IF there is a future for her:

 

lyrics

black sun dawning on my technicolor day
old goths never die they only fade to grey
blackness surrounds me but I’m not the only one
I recognize resentment in the eyes behind the sun.

don’t take away this love I have longed for
please take away this pain….
My heart is filled with untouched emotion
eclipsed by endless rain

white orb light fills me and I am complete again
if wholeness can be measured when your barely even sane
killing my presence until there is nothing left to see
nothing but the emptiness you’ve left inside of me…

don’t take away this love I have longed for
please take away this pain
My heart is filled with untouched emotion
eclipsed by endless-

rain beats on my window
a million stars descending down
shattered drops of crystal
burst on the pavement with no sound
in these tears I wander
my essence dead but mortal bound
without your sun my shadow
is hidden in this earthly shroud

don’t take away this love I have longed for
please take away this pain
my heart is filled with untouched emotion
eclipsed by endless rain

don’t take away this love I have longed for
please take away this pain
my heart is filled with untouched emotion
eclipsed by endless rain
