Like many people, the members of the British hard rock band The Cult were deeply moved by the tragedies in Paris in 2015 and are speaking out the incidents through their music. 

Conceived as a response to the tragedy and massacres in Paris, both the Charlie Hebdo and Bataclan incidents, the band's new lyric video for their song “Deeply Ordered Chaos” addresses the attacks. “'Deeply Ordered Chaos' was written after events in Paris in January this year," explains frontman Ian Astbury (who directed the video with Juan Azualy) about the shootings at French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in January. "We chose to depict scenes of wild life and outer space to provide a counterpoint to the wave of violent images we are constantly bombarded with and acknowledge the profoundness of being. This is also in response to events in Paris on Nov. 13."

The video is directed by Juan Azualy and frontman Ian Astbury. "The title came from one our greatest painters and visionaries, Francis Bacon, who stated, 'I believe in deeply ordered chaos.' His work and philosophy have had a profound affect on my life," adds Astbury.
