INTERVIEW – LEAVING EDEN

A Song Which Made You Want To Make Music:  

Hi I’m Eric from the band Leaving Eden.  It’s my pleasure to chat with you today. We are from Boston Mass area USA.   For me the song would be something from Black Sabbath. Probably War Pigs or something like that.

Best Experience While On Tour:

It’s fun to travel and we have been to 47 States in the USA, Canada and overseas in Europe. So great to meet new people and see things that we could have never seen if it wasn’t for the music. For me really that’s the best experience. Playing with bands like Black Sabbath Disturbed Alice Cooper Shinedown it’s all very surreal. And yet you get to meet some of these people and realize that they’re just people. Yes I’ve met some assholes that we’re just so high on themselves but most of the time people very cool.

Cover you would really like to do?

The Sounds of Silence

Deepest Lyrics One Of Your Songs Features:

Our Song tied and bound off of our tied and bound album says; we’ve been screwed over charged underpaid and abused we’ve been avoided exploited and falsely accused we’ve been cut down let down fucked around tied and bound but nothing could take the music away.

Easiest Song You Wrote:

It’s more of an acoustic tune titled The Fighter. That can be found on our welcome to my world album.

Favourite album/single/EP you have released:

Our latest album out of the ashes recorded by Johnny K who also recorded Disturbed Staind 3 Doors Down Megadeth Pop Evil. Mastered by Brad Blackwood who’s list is incredible too many to mention. It’s the best sounding album to date. And it’s a pretty heavy album. Three of the songs office Album are going to be in movies.

Greatest Show/Festival You Have Played:

Gotta say Black Sabbath with Ronnie James Dio before he passed away. Heaven and Hell.

Happiest Moment You’ve Experienced In The Band:

It’s always the happiest moment when you’re up and stage in front of thousands of people that’s what it’s about. We have also played in front of two people.

Interesting Fact About One Of Your Members:

Eve lead singer was in Color Guard performing around the country in front of thousands of people. Those kind of performances you simply can’t make any mistakes so she really learned what it took to practice and get it right every time.

Jokes You Have In The Band:

Can’t, some things are just better left unsaid. Here’s a clean one;  A cat goes to heaven, meets St. Peter at the pearly gates and ST. Peter says, “In or out, in or out?”

Kicking Off Your Set Is Best With Which Song:

Tied and bound it’s full of energy and for me I don’t sing much so I can really run around the stage.

Longest Distance You’ve Travelled To Play A Show:

Well we traveled to Europe to play many shows so however far that is.

Movie That Best Represents The Band:

That’s a tough one I’ll have to get back to you on that.  How bout the Blues Brothers?

New Band You’d Recommend:

It’s lots of great new bands out there. We like Gemini syndrome’s sound.

Opening For This Band Would Be Ideal:

Any of the greats like Metallica Fleetwood Mac The Rolling Stones. Greats in terms of concert attendance.

Place You’d Most Like To Tour:

We haven’t been to Italy yet and I think it would be cool too go to places like Japan China.

Quote That You’d Like To Pass On To Readers:

Darkness can never overcome the light unless the light dies.

Reason For The Title Of Your Recent/Forthcoming Release:

The title is based on one of the songs choruses on the new album.

The First Song You Ever Played Together As A Band:

Probably Our Song haunting. That’s also off our tied and bound album it’s our first album. I should say first real album meaning released to the public cuz we’ve got about 20 of them. Only five have been released. I also sing the song.

Unusual Merchandise:

Nothing really unusual about what we have.

Variations You’d Like To Do On Any Of Your Songs:

Some songs when we play them live we will add crowd participation parts which we love to do. So we do this with maniac and out of the ashes off our out of the ashes album live. Eve gets the crowd into it.

Worst Experience On Tour:

Yes there’s good and there’s bad. Bad is usually a result of too much partying going on around us.  We’ve had near death accidents we’ve lost tires we’ve had our hotel room broken into while the guys was sleeping. We gotten so lost. Gotten stuck.

X-rays Or Any Other Treatments For Band Related Injuries:.

Don’t have any x-rays but I did snap my ankle in half, and Eve broke her foot couple times too

Your Favourite Show You’ve Ever Played:

Got to be Alice Cooper because of his theatrics on stage. He hung himself man that’s alright in my book.

Zoo Animal That Best Describes The Band:

A monkey that jerks off all the time?

Seriously I guess and thinking about Eve we’ll say a gazelle paired with a lioness
