The transforming power of art.

In the song “Solaris” Ed Hale and company deliver a unique Britpop meets post-modern rock style that shines some light on the stage of their new apocalyptic rock opera, the much anticipated All Your Heroes Become Villains. The song was inspired in part the band says by the 2002 Steven Soderbergh film Solaris. In the Sci-Fi classic starring George Clooney, characters near the planet Solaris unwittingly summon replicas of their loved ones into existence. When Hale saw the movie soon after the death of one of his good friends, it’s no wonder that he made a connection to his loss:   

“Seeing that movie just knocked me out. It hit me at the right time. I had my guitar with me and while I was watching the film I just started strumming these chords and creating this song about my friend,” says Hale. “But I was also writing about the movie. It’s like I placed Julia into the movie in order to bring her back to life for myself. I just felt that because it was unbearable to contemplate her passing that at the very least I could make her alive in some other form, like she’s still living -- but in a different dimension.”
