Mad World is a cover song of Tears Of Fears. Mad World follows the success of Arcadia and EGO were released towards the end of 2019 which gave us the 1st two installments of game vs reality.
Per Bergquist: for a while now we have talked about recording a cover but we just couldn’t make up our minds about what song. After listening to our fans in to which song they would like us to record. I remember one girl writing to us about “MAD WORLD”. After listening to the lyrics, letting it sink in, I just couldn’t think of a more perfect track that would fit better on the ARCADIA album than Mad World.
Smash Into Pieces: To be trapped in the pure madness of the ARCADIA world where you can’t tell reality from fiction is enough to make any sane person go mad. Imagine for a second that you live in a world where the dreams in which you are dying are the best you’ve ever had, that a place where people run in circles without going nowhere, completely without expressions and where they fill their glasses with tears of sorrow would be your reality..
Wouldn’t you say that that’s the definition of a very, very MAD WORLD?
Mad World is dedicated in loving memory of Nikita who’s life ended far to soon. Smash Into Pieces – Mad World will be released to all major streaming platforms 24th January 2020, With a bright future set for the band and their 5th Album being released March 2020 Smash Into Pieces with their rock / pop mix show the world they have the stance to set the bar high amongst the vast growing music industry keeping up with all the changes happening.
