"Finally… on my birthday… here is the second video clip from the Ayreon Live Beneath The Waves DVD/BluRay," Arjen Lucassen announces. "I picked the song The Day That The World Breaks Down because firstly it’s one of my favorites and secondly it features many of the talented singers. We never thought we could pull this complicated song off in a live setting, but seems like we did it! Let me know if you agree… enjoy."

Also joining mainman Lucasen for the shows were a veritable who's who from the prog and rock worlds, including Katatonia singer Jonas Renkse, Toehider's Mike Mills, Phideaux Xavier, Autumn's Marjan Welman, Praying Mantis frontman John Jaycee Cuijpers, Liselotte Hegt, Maggy Luyten, MaYan's Marcela Bovio and Irene Jansen.

"01011001 is one of my favourite Ayreon albums," Lucassen adss, "and putting this show together was really exciting and rewarding. When I first approached the cast and crew via email, messaging, etc., within minutes I got back the most heartwarming and enthusiastic reactions. Everyone was excited about helping me bring the album to life..."
