ORCHID: “SAVIORS OF THE BLIND” SONG SNIPPET
Posted: August 29, 2012
A snippet of the new song “Saviours Of The Blind” with text commentary by San Francisco-based doom rockers ORCHID is now available on YouTube at http://youtu.be/L80NkpIsbzI. Guitarist Mark Thomas Baker shares some insight on the track’s origin: “We had been jamming on different variations of the middle part for a few years and it felt really natural to expand on it and put it in the middle of this song. [“Saviours Of The Blind”] was played live on tour quite a bit, so we had this down pretty good by the time we recorded it. I love the way it came out in the studio.” ORCHID’s 3-song Heretic EP will be available in North America on 10” colored vinyl in September. Track listing is: 01: Heretic 02: Falling Away 03: Saviours Of The Blind The “Heretic” lyric video is available at http://youtu.be/SJ6eZ4wGiJ0.
