Independent hard rock act State of Illusion this week released a new take of its song ‘Blind’ alongside a new companion video.

Front man Jacob Porter explained in an interview that he originally crafted the song some 10 years ago and that the new mix takes elements of the song from previous members and adds them to this presentation.

“I wrote ‘Blind’ in the middle of the night roughly 10 years ago, but we still feel life and energy from it every time we play it,” Porter said.  “Those 10 years can definitely be felt on ‘Blind’ because the new mix takes tiny recordings from almost every member we’ve had over the years and subtly inserts them throughout the track. We included it on Aphelion because we knew that it was a song that needed to be heard. Despite originally promoting another song as the single for Aphelion (2014), ‘Blind’ was the song that seemed to connect most with listeners, probably because of the back and forth volley of mellow and hard-hitting elements and personal lyrics written so that they can be applied to the listeners’ unique situations. That’s why we decided to team up with Silent Flight Productions to create a visual to go along with the music. Hopefully, the new version of ‘Blind’, along with the awesome video, will resonate with new listeners on an emotional level and give them a little taste of what State of Illusion is all about.”

Audiences can download Aphelion now via iTunes.  More information on that album is available online now along with all of the band’s latest news and more at:
