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

"Drumeria", the new Dead Poets Society single from the "Synners" video, is now available!

In late 2010 we announced that we would be releasing a handful of tracks that had not been released widely, or were tracks that we enjoyed but felt did not fit well into the new album, so we decided to release these separately as singles.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Drumeria” is the third of these singles.

 

In 2002, we debuted our Dead Poets Society music video, “Synners”(which you can check out here if you like), at the first annual Parkdale Film Festival. 

 

In order for the video to meet festival requirements some end credits were added, and this track was composed to back those end credits.

 

The image on the cover of the single is a still from the film festival edit of the “Synners” video, and features Ryan Mann from Hotboxed (who performed guest vocals on the song, and co-wrote the story for the video). Ryan Mann, performing live with Hotboxed.

 

The track has been requested by fans over the years, and we are proud to have finally made it available in high quality sound. 

Enjoy!

Currently you can only grab a copy at iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby, but eventually you will be able to get the song at all of the usual places: Last.fm, Napster, Rhapsody, Emusic, MediaNet, and Verizon.

We’ll update this post with the links as they come in. So be sure to visit again, if it hasn’t appeared on your favorite spot yet.

 If you’d like to support the band, in addition to picking up the song, you can also help by writing a review on iTunes, CDBaby, and/or Amazon

Happy Pi Day!

"Fire Bolt (live)" Now Available Everywhere!

Earlier this past October we announced that we would be releasing a handful of tracks that had not been released widely, or were tracks that we enjoyed but felt did not fit well into the new album, so we decided to release these separately as singles.

Fire Bolt (live) is the second of these tracks. It was recorded while we performed at The Zebra Lounge in Bozeman, Montana during our 2002 West Coast tour.

This performance features Wa Conner on drums and percussion, Jessica Griffin-Conner (aka Raven Nightshado) on keyboards and synths, and Eric Drake on keyboards and synths.

It is available through CDBaby, iTunes, Amazon, Last.fm, Napster, Rhapsody, Emusic, MediaNet, and Verizon.

We hope you enjoy it! Happy Holidays!

New Dead Poets Society Single "Schoenfeld" Available Now Worldwide!

“Schoenfeld” by Dead Poets Society

“Schoenfeld” is the first of a batch of singles that Dead Poets Society will be releasing over the coming months. As we’ve worked endlessly on the new album we discovered that there were some tracks that didn’t really fit on The Bone Church, but they were tracks that we liked, and thought that they should be made available to you.

Schoenfeld was inspired by the incredibly positive impact that Wa’s maternal grandmother, Leola, had on his life as a creative person. If she were alive, she would have been nearly 107 years old. The album cover is a photo of her taken around 1928. Her maiden name was Schoenfeld, which means “shining field” in German.

This track is an instrumental juxtaposition that takes that shining field and passes it through the pressure infused context of today’s modern world, much as the personality of Leola Schoenfeld once did. She was an unconventional woman, and this is an unconventional instrumental mix of electronica, rock, and jazz. We sincerely hope you enjoy it.

“Schoenfeld” is available for digital distribution through CDBaby , iTunes, Amazon Mp3, Amazon.co.uk,  Zune, eMusic, Napster, Rhapsody, Last.fm, Jango.

We welcome your impressions and reviews of “Schoenfeld” on Facebook, Last.fm or CDBaby.

Sincerely,

Wa
