About Our New SIngle "In Defeat"

The idea for this song came from the true story that inspired Moby Dick. In 1820, The whaling ship Essex with a crew of 20 was attacked by a whale crew and was forced to abandon ship into three small boats which they sailed to an uninhabited island. Three of the 17 remaining crew members decided to stay on the island instead of returning to sea to attempt sailing to safety. Of the 14 sailors who left the island only two survived, after resorting to cannibalism. The three sailors who remained on the island were rescued about 1 year later. This song is about the decision to remain on the island, and accept the fate and desolation that they may not survive, rather than facing the dangers of sea again.
