Original Story:

Born Of Osiris have christened their new album “The Simulation” and will have it in stores on January 11th through Sumerian. A music video for the second song from it, “The Accursed“, (the previously released “Silence The Echo” will also appear on the record) has arrived online and can be viewed below.

The band’s guitarist Lee McKinney commented:

“The first single and video for ‘The Accursed‘ plays exactly off of the album titles and themes. People are stuck and addicted to machines, social media, virtual realities and anything that creates a life or reality that’s not their own. Our phones have become an extension of ourselves, a body part. We play games or throw on virtual headsets that literally suck us out of the reality we live and into a fantasy. What’s the future going to look like, a simulation? Could the simulation have already begun?

Also, this new album keeps the integrity high across the board. I want to make the best songs I could for the people who are listening (and myself), and I want to perform them to their best ability on stage to give the people attending our shows those ‘wow’ moments. We want to give them those concert memories that’ll last a lifetime.”

Synth/backing vocalist Joe Buras also commented:

“We welcome the incorporation of steel, or have we already? It’s hard to prove we are not already in a simulation with the development of AI, advances in brain mapping technology and the inevitable singularity. We now see an age that is either here or on the horizon.”

Pre-orders for the record have launched over at “The Simulation” will run as follows:

01 – “The Accursed
02 – “Disconnectome
03 – “Cycles Of Tragedy
