"Rhapsody in Orange and Black: Guernica"

"This desire to have a more mature sound, more intense presence permeates throughout their new work's content, as well as its sound. Their new record is a concept album that focuses on a fictional king and his relationship with his daughter as he rules over the fictional country of Guernica."
-- Bri Moore - Hendrix

Bio

Guernica, a local Arkansan band that only wants to be heard, was formed in early 2009 and consists of Zac Davis, Andrea Forrest, Josh Hill, Rui Miao, Patrick Moore, and Jason Ruth.

Beginning as a purely acoustic band with female vocals, Guernica has expanded it's musicality to include a harder style of music with electric guitar, more drums, and the introduction of a bassist. During 2010, the members of Guernica decided to produce an album based on a collaborative concept of a Persian-esque storyline.

Currently, Guernica is based on the following concept:
Once, in the kingdom of Guernica, there lived a king and a queen that desperately vied for a child. The regal queen was able to bear none, but when the king pleaded to the Divine, a miraculous child was born at the expense of the queen’s life. However, even though the child was female, and even though the king’s advisors called the child wicked, the king loved his daughter with all his heart. As time went on, the king watched the growth of his darling daughter, and the growth of his advisor’s dissent of his heir. Every night he was tortured by the thought of his child losing her happiness. The king, finally succumbed to his advisor’s beliefs, decided to take his daughter to the kingdom’s river. There, he drowned her. Wrought with regret at his actions, he rushed her to a secretive doctor, asking him to fix her. She is saved, but barely, as she only exists in a dream-filled coma. During her deep sleep, she receives visions from a ghost of a future kingdom war. The king, still consumed by guilt, resides at her bedside hoping for her to wake up because she is his heart, and hoping she stays asleep because of what his hand has done. Now, he can only hope for her forgiveness…
