The band will play there brilliant take on a King Crimson classic and the bands’ new single, “Frame by Frame,” Joe, Jason, Paul, and Michelangelo will also spin a mix of other originals and covers, plus share there favorite prog covers of all time.
The meaning of this song.
Here is what I’ve found, and it lines up with my interpretation:
Frame by Frame is about how someone is proceeding ‘frame by frame’ (in the small scale) with their analysis of something. They “drown” in their analysis, doubting themselves (by numbers, or predictably).”
Basically, we are caught up in our own thoughts, our own analysis of an object or a situation. When we overthink something, our thoughts can act like a weight that clouds our vision and drowns us.
In our current dystopian reality, there are a million theories floating around. It’s hard to know what to believe. Many overanalyze the situation and make dour predictions not based on real data. We are left to stew in our own quarantined bubble and drive ourselves es insane because our future is uncertain and there are no concrete answers to our questions.
This song WILL be on our next album. When that is released is anybody’s guess. We are compiling material, have three songs mixed and are about to finish tracking a fourth, are writing the next three…
In the meantime, we will be releasing new singles every few months. This is the same approach we took with Guilty of Innocence, releasing the first single in 2014 and the album in 2017. Yeah, we’re slow.
