Progressive post-hardcore quintet Schemata Theory have released another track from their upcoming new album Unity In Time, titled ‘Mind Eater‘. The song takes a look at the consuming and destructive nature of anxiety. Check out the video here.
Vocalist Myles Dyer comments: “‘Mind Eater’ underlines the scary predicament of how anxiety can thrive when our minds continually dwell in memories or perceived futures. But although we can become our own worst enemy during such episodes, with the right tools and methods, we can become our own greatest ally too. This song speaks to the hard battle with anxiety that millions of people grapple with daily.”
Myles recently discovered Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), founded by Professor Paul Gilbert, which transformed his life in dealing with anxiety. CFT utilises the method of mindfulness to bring one’s attention into the moment/present. It also involves the practice of self-compassion to acknowledge how courageous we all are as individuals, to exist in a world that unfortunately contains so much suffering.
Unity in Time is Schemata Theory’s acknowledgement that the struggle continues as we all try to create and develop much needed connections. Our common humanity exists beyond fear, ego and defensiveness, all of which stands in its way. Returning to the studio to work with Justin Hill (SikTh, Heart of a Coward, Betraying The Martyrs) and drawing on their disparate influences in the likes of Killswitch Engage, Enter Shikari and Funeral for a Friend, the band have pulled together their greatest work to date.
