You can read about the story behind the ‘Gone This Night’ track and music video below.

2048 A.D.
The most influential leaders of the remaining world have brought their capitals together to make what may be the most ambitious enterprise of the 21st century. Billions of dollars have been spent on creating a network that allows all of the governmental structures in the whole world to watch every step of each citizen and capture it in the form of video data. Society doesn’t mind since it’s being made under the pretext of making litigation faster and more efficient.

2084 A.D.
The network has been finished and introduced to society. It’s easy to find criminals now. As a result, crime levels begin to decrease. Also, there’s no personal space anymore. Big Brother is watching you wherever you are. You might carry on with some of your wrongdoings if you wish to, and you won’t be punished as long as you do it obediently.

2106 A.D.
The Earth is overflowing with storage of incriminating video data. Lots of buildings that were once schools, universities and hospitals now serve as storage sites as well. Four huge space stations are being built to store even more data.

2248 A.D.
Mankind is no more. All the machines created by man live their own lives through random actions provoked by lack of maintenance. The same thing is happening on the last space station of that big four – the last source of video data proving that humanity ever existed. Day by day, random videos are being played incessantly inside the space station. Right now it’s a sequence of events that happened in 2097 to Anthony Blaire. At this time, software simulating real people reached the peak of popularity. Most of humanity’s entertainment needs and desires could be satisfied with virtual simulation. Real people are no longer needed for that anymore.
