Video – I Love You But I’m Lost

IMG_3201

*Moderator’s Thoughts
To underestimate the intuition of Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal is foolish. These two didn’t dive into the deep – they set up shop in that space and are truly ruling the world with some REAL TALK! These two know stuff…a lot of stuff. They are walking third eyes. They not only “know” stuff that’ll not only make you think but will slam your arse down on the curb or have you laid out on the sidewalk …wait for it…shook af!

#ILYBIL – is almost like a spiral down into the rabbit warren. The video speaks volumes without saying too much or even changing scenes. It’s all in that bar and a back room with insightful characters. It looks to touch on the dilemma of the Twin Flame concept. Also, you’ve got the cute mature couple who are enjoying their life in fashion, the JFashionista in the Tokyo Street capris and captivating spectacles casually minding her own business but you know she has all the answers as she’s seen it all before, the love interest to whom the main character clearly can’t commit because well…there’s a number of scenarios here. We don’t see any type of drug or addiction here…it looks like complications from ASD. Then there’s the lovely bartender who grows a third eye and we can only again suspect that it can be from a number of perception issues. Perception is one of the key themes of this video and it is brilliantly done. For me, it’s like looking at the answer to some serious situations occurring in my “waking life.” After speaking to so many other fans they too can resonate which speaks to the power of the band’s ability to do this on a massive level!

There is so much going on with only a whisper of the Good Man Smith and Sir Orzabal in a promotional frame. For me personally, the story hits home in regards to people so caught up in self-absorption they don’t even realise it or are inconsiderate to those their self-harm actually hurts. They may be medicating for legitimate purposes but they are killing everyone else emotionally as they attempt to live. It also speaks to the existence of people who seem to get in their own way – I actually met someone like that…wait for it…on the 5th of November long before this song was released. I have the proof. Not to mention that the dance the couple engage in has a level change that is unique to a particular partner dance from my culture – again, I’m just shook! This whole video and its messaging has eerily and yet comfortingly (probably not a word) hit home for me in a way that makes me feel we are all spiritually connected more than any of us could ever comprehend. It’s like looking at a scene from my life from the past few years.

Each time I look at it, I cry, it’s hard to watch because it just gets in your head and touches the core. Everyone I spoke to locally and online says it is so relatable it’s jarring…again we are all spiritually connected and can resonate with these scenes.

What does this video say to you, do for you, make you feel?! These are just two songs from the coming album…TWO…brace yourselves guys…these upcoming concerts following the release of the album are gonna look and FEEL VERY DIFFERENT. Be ready to set up shop in the deep…they have turned that BIG CHAIR into a chariot ride into some mind blowing surreal situations by which many of us shall be touched. Gonna be a powerful and emotional clap section at these shows…

Now, we can’t deny this video is still unavailable to many stateside and that is excruciating and it feels rude even if it isn’t or directly tied to negligence on anyone’s part. So, Gwen – a wonderful and generous fan who stays in touch and continues her TFF Travel Fan excursions this coming year during tour 2018 – has provided this link that allows stateside fans to view it with ease. She is this month’s Travel Fan MVP!

Again, discuss, cry, chat, shout and let it all out…this album is about to take us places. Embroidered handkerchiefs will be available…

Fans from around the world sporting their merch!

Big thanks to those who shared their videos. Here are some from the past two nights at the Staples Center. Many people literally changed their lives around to be present for this show. Huge thanks for going the extra mile under the circumstance. Some had to give up their tickets and others gave them to fellow fans.

We appreciate those that made those sacrifices as fellow fans. Few words can ever express the power of the fans and what they do to make things happen. What makes it even more special is that Mr. Moyer was there as well providing support on Working Hour! Hope it’s okay to mention this but he just got married to a beautiful lady named Andrea (not ours – but a different Andrea equally as awesome indeed! We’re so happy for him. Be sure to get the link to his band’s music at the bottom of this post. Now, enjoy Working Hour

As mentioned on the official FB page, site and by Good Man Curt, there’s been a pause. We’ll of course announce the new dates when we get them as well. Try to be at peace and not panic. If you need a refund on your flight and have any issues receiving it from your airline, let us know via Twitter or you can email us on FB and gmail. Also consider asking for a credit so you can use that money for the reschedule. Things are going to work out…they always do for these fine band members by the Grace. Amen.

Tears for Fears Touching the Hearts of Tel Aviv 2017

The phone rang, people emailed, the media reached out… “Are you going to Tel Aviv? Can we speak with you?” Everyone was excited about this show! It was one of the first to be officially announced this year on the grapevine so to speak.

Here’s some footage from that show. Please be sure to reach out, follow and befriend all who are sharing! It’s awesome to build your circle with fellow Tears for Fears fans! Congratulations to Carina Round as she is expecting a child soon. We wish her well.

This post is dedicated to Liran Dan who was so excited about the show and reached out to pour his heart and soul into the greetings for the band. G-d bless you!

Love It When Tears for Fears Come to Canada!

Tears for Fears in Canada… dedicated to Michel-Ange, his mother and Penny!

From Andye

Forgive me guys, I was supposed to be at this show. I want to thank all the cool people that reached out beforehand and made their way to Toronto, Quebec and Montreal! I love Canada…particularly Toronto. I’ll never forget when I moved there briefly (was returned to the states kicking and screaming – I DID NOT want to leave and often wonder if I had only stood my ground and just stayed what would have become of me). While there, I was looking out the window near Ryerson Theatre and the band The Bad Plus came on the radio. I had no idea that their jazz version of Everybody Wants to Rule the World wasn’t actually Tears for Fears themselves doing something fancy. When they said that “they’ll be performing later that month” I thought they meant TFF. I literally wanted to change my plane ticket and just stay longer eventhough I knew I had to leave the country on x date. Fast forward almost 10years later, I’m writing this practically crying cause I love my Canadian friends so much that I’ve literally tried to get a few to move here. So far, we’ve had a handful…all Tears for Fears fans!!

Here’s a great note from Michel-Ange who was at the show last night. G-d bless him!

This is a message for Tears For Fears !!
HI Tears For Fears !!
On this thursday, i wish you a huge welcome to Montréal from one of your biggest fan !!
I’m Michel-Ange Rodriguez from Montréal, student and artist ! I’m waiting your awesome show in Place Des Arts, my sit is on third row (GROUND FLOOR CC 7) !
I have been a big fan since my teenage years. The first single i heard on a radio is “Everybody Wants To Rule The World”. This first single who have made me stronger as an individual !
It’s a big honor and pleasure to draw the hyper realistic portrait of the album “Song From The Big Chair” that I did.
To draw people’s portrait is a talent of mine. Without been shy, i’ll show you this big portrait after the show ! My big dream is to meet you and take a photo with you both after the show, if it’s possible !
If you want, i would like to show you the portrait that reflect my passion for drawing 🙂 !
Thank you very much Tears For Fears to have taken the time to read my message !
Will be a pleasure to meet in Montréal thursday !
ROCK’N ROLL TEARS FOR FEARS !!!!!
