Halo

Album: Graveyard of Empires (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This song from Canadian Alternative Rock band Evans Blue's fourth album was debuted on December 9, 2012 on Revolver's website. Vocalist Dan Chandler explained the inspiration behind the track to the magazine: "The song was written about a moment in my life when I felt things/people were being taken from me without reason. Something a lot of us have unfortunately had to deal with. Parker [Lauzon, guitarist] sent me the music when I was going through a hard time. Many questions. When you lose something important to you, it's almost like you can't stop your mind from revisiting the past. The song came to me quick because of the mood I had been in. It was a very medicinal writing for me…The song is personal and people close to me know me well, so they immediately understood what the song had to say."
