The Red Chord - Trivia
The band's name is derived from Alban Berg's opera Wozzeck, in which a schizophrenic man slits his lover's throat, then reverts to his normal self and asks, "My love, what is that red cord across your neck?".
Band frontman Guy Kozowyk stated that the title for "Pray For Eyes" was "inspired by events where my brother, who is a prison guard, walks in on an inmate doing something ridiculous in his cell. The prisoner won't talk and gets into this dialogue via a notepad. After documenting that he can no longer talk because the devil removed his tongue, my brother checks the cons mouth with his flashlight. When he tells him that his tongue is definitely intact, the inmate replies with the cryptic message "Pray for Eyes"."
The title 'Fed through the Teeth Machine' came from a documentary "How It's Made" on the Discovery Channel, talking about when zippers are put through a particular machine.
