2014 was our tenth year as a group, and it turned out to be an exciting year for the band as we released Hitchhiking to Byzantium and headed out for the first time with the new lineup, with Anton making his presence very much felt. Shows ranged from a packed out Metro Theatre in Sydney playing to some 1200 people to an intimate club show in our adopted hometown in front of 100 people, most of whom we probably knew by name. All the shows shared the same powerful atmosphere and although the setlist rotated practically every night, each show drew material from all three studio albums with the newer material from Hitchhiking more than holding it's own against the older material in the set.
It's has long been a feature of Anubis' shows to sequence the set together with linking sound effects and sections to strengthen and maintain the atmosphere and this album captures the effect much as it was performed.
'Behind Our Eyes' strikes a balance between the mainstays of the 2013/2014 set, as well as a clutch of rarely performed pieces, and the inclusion of 'The Doctor', being amongst the very first pieces that Robert and I ever wrote together for the 230503 album, feels particularly apropos.
2014 was, indeed, a very good year for Anubis.
