Vocalist / guitarist Tiago Masseti comments: “We are very excited that our first live appearance in the U.S. will be at ProgPower USA. The festival’s audience and crew have been supporting us since we released our first album and it couldn’t be more appropriate to bring this new material to them first hand.
“In the song ‘A Cup Of Agony’ we join the Stuntman, one of the attractions of the Circus, as he reflects about the concept of pain. He draws a parallel between physical and psychological pain and how either affects us and get us addicted.
“Doing his stunts, he deals with physical pain on a daily basis, turning it into entertainment. And as a performer and someone who takes such an aggressive element of human life and turns it into art he deals with a great deal of psychological pain. And he drinks from this cup, feeding his pain in the quest for attention and recognition. And he nurtures it, endlessly.”
The Circus Of The Tattered And Torn by Daydream XI
For new album “The Circus Of The Tattered And Torn,” Daydream XI embraces the progressive side of music in a dark concept album. The concept is a metaphor to express that we are drawn to each other more by our weaknesses and our flaws than our strengths and virtues.
It’s portrayed through a journey, where Phillip, the Circus master, takes his new apprentice, Circe, across the various acts of this Circus. Like what you hear? Pre-orders are online here.
