Twisted Illusion continue their rise with the release of a trilogy of stunning albums, under the guise of “Excite The Light”. Part One from the collection lands on Friday November 19th, with the subsequent albums following next year. The band has also just released a new single, “No Compromise”.
Frontman Matt Jones discusses the backstory to the series: “The Excite the Light Trilogy is a distinct representation of all things Twisted Illusion. From sprawling 30+ minute epics to three-minute slices of radio friendly rock, Excite the Light is the epitome of the band’s aims and musical intentions. The trilogy chronicles my journey with my own mental health struggles and my eventual acceptance/recovery as we reach Part 3.
Part 1 is an explosive start and is the metal side of the three records. It is by far the darkest of the three, dealing with diagnosis, defiance, and denial. I hope this trilogy can resonate with anyone dealing with any mental health struggle. It’s my life condensed into three albums and the most personal story I feel I will ever tell through my music.”
