Brisbane progressive metal outfit As Paradise Falls have started the road towards the release of their new album today with the release of their new single, “Star Blind”. The track features brand new vocalist Shaun Coar (Vessel Born, touring vocals for Feed Her to the Sharks, Bound For Ruin) and is a biting critique on the culture around “celebrities” in the modern era.
Songwriter and Guitarist for As Paradise Falls, Danny Kenneally, says of the new single, “The song Star Blind is meant to explore the culture of celebrity in western society – in recent years, thanks to the advent of social media, the traditional model of what “famous” is or was has changed by epidemic proportions. The idea of fame hasn’t always been seen as such a high goal to so many people. But what was a sometimes blurry line between fame and infamy is now pretty indistinguishable by people who seek validation in a world where it’s so hard to find value in themselves. In the current modern digital culture, we need to value substance more than ever.
