Singled Out: Hierosonic's The Media Taught You That

Hierosonic kick off a their tour with Seven Day Sonnet on October 7th and to celebrate we asked frontman Ben Stewart to tell us about their new single "The Media Taught You That" from their latest album 'Consciousness, Fame, God, Money, Power' .

Hierosonic's single 'The Media Taught You That' is a modern exploitation of a timeless cultural symbol. The media reflects exactly what mass psychology craves. Wars as entertainment, lies as collective denial, truth only when it suits our self image and everything under the sun that dies will make the front page. In no way shape or form does the song portray the media as a negative or positive force in our culture. Only as the television's representation of the condition of our mind.

Even the term "media" is a symbol of the medium between reality and our belief systems. Both of which are polar opposites. Hierosonic's inspiration for 'the Media Taught You That' comes from their curiosity about what constitutes our truth as a global society.

The chorus drives home the mantra "We are the free, the land of hopes and dreams", countered by telling us that the world is going to end. Yet again, we hear in the chorus "The world is full of lies, so don't open your eyes", because as always the masses crave excitement, death, disease, and trials to overcome. Therefore the last line of the song screams, "The world is going to end tonight", for the media taught you that.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album more on this story
