Diagnosed with both panic disorder and agoraphobia, Warne began to feel his life crashing down around him. He was prescribed antidepressants and, before long, began to experience unwelcome side effects – most notably vivid dreams and nightmares induced by the medication.
“I knew I had to write about this”, continues Warne, detailing his reaction to these experiences and tumultuous dreams. “‘Two Frames of Panic’, both musically and lyrically marks a real outpour of what I was feeling at the time. My perception was marked with chaos, confusion, overstimulation – yet on the surface, I was seen as indifferent, neutral, grey and nonplussed as a result of the medication. I used the song to get those feelings out of my head in a way that made sense to me and possibly to others.”
In addition to the release of a new single, Kyros have also confirmed ‘Celexa Streams’, a virtual “tour” that will take place over the course of the next few months.
In the absence of the ability to physically tour the country in support of their forthcoming album, Warne and the band will be hosting a number of live performances featuring songs from ‘Celexa Dreams’ merged with fan favourites from their past releases. The band will also be appearing as part of the online Fusion 3.5 Festival, which will be streaming on 30th May. Details can be found on the festival’s Facebook Page.
