You know,having been played live and all...

 

Exactly, you could say they've played the three singles* at Psycho Tour.

 

*yes I know Psycho isn't technically a single but still

Takeaway points from the radio interviews:

 

  • Dead Inside is about losing love, takes the album into a dark place
  • After Psycho the album keeps getting progressively darker
  • Mercy and The Handler in particular are really dark
  • Defector and Revolt are when the protagonist starts to fight back, regains self control
  • Aftermath is the end of the brainwashing story, about finding love again
  • The Globalist is the CE sequel, a "10 minute prog nightmare," about the rise and fall of a dictator, end of world, WW3
  • Dead Inside and Psycho are the two extremes of the album, melodic and heavy
  • The album leans more towards heavy side
  • This is their return to being a three-piece band

Chris also claims the Psycho tour has the band talking about doing more intimate gigs, says there is "something missing" in playing big arenas etc.

I'm getting the sense that the main story if the album spans from Psycho until Aftermath with Dead Inside acting as a prologue of sorts with a dual function of introducing the story and being a recap of T2L and TR adn then The Globalist is it's own story that still fits thematically and then Drones is... I don't know... a conclusion of some sort?

IMO: The Globalist is the end result of the protagonist defecting. Now on the outside, he gets to watch the world destroy itself.

 

If it were a movie, Drones is the song that plays during the end credits.

So are we expecting Isolated System 2.0?

I thought Defector would be the dark one but hey. (called it with mercy yes)

 

A CE sequel? Hmm. Not sure if good or bad.

World War D(rones)

:chuckle:

I actually hope there isn't an instrumental one. As amazing as IS is, I barely ever listen to it.

 

But if we get an instrumental we don't have to worry about terrible lyrics

Or Matt's vocals, which are still stellar, "bad" lyrics or no.

Album's a bit short to have a full instrumental, imo.

I thought Defector would be Big Freeze v2. Now I'm more inclined towards Aftermath (being Big Freeze v2).
