Formed in 2009 after several years of playing in the New York and New Jersey alternative, hardcore punk and metal scene, the self proclaimed Velvet Grunge band had a new shared focus: brotherhood, strong songwriting and never looking back. They wanted to stray from the trends that they were seeing in the music industry. Together they wanted to write songs that could stand the test of time.
Inspired by some of their heroes like Smashing Pumpkins, Pixies, Bad Religion, Pearl Jam, Incubus and Alice in Chains, GOE prides themselves on unforgettable guitar riffs, thought provoking lyrics and melodies that are meant for the masses. With influences which run the gamut from 90s alternative and grunge to hardcore, metal and 80s College Rock, GOE seamlessly combines these seemingly disparate elements with a sound that gives your ear a good swift kick to the backside.
For a band that has only been playing live for a little over two years, GOE has independently accomplished what some only dream of. From being invited to grace SOLD OUT crowds at New York Citys famed Gramercy Theatre and Highline Ballroom, to playing multiple shows at Six Flags Great Adventure and in-house promotional performances at Best Buy and Hot Topic, Ghosts of Eden is quickly on the rise.
As of now Ghosts of Eden are unsigned, but I predict that it wont be long at all before the record label bidding wars begin. A Geek Girl, Blog Critics
GOE has recorded their self-produced debut EP Ignorance & Lies and their 2nd EP “Something (Kinetic)” at Big Blue Meenie Studios (Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, Helmet, Local H, Bouncing Souls, Misfits, etc.) All songs were written, arranged and produced by the band. Ignorance & Lies was released on January 16th, 2010 and “Something (Kinetic)” on July 8th, 2011, both to rave reviews by critics and fans alike.
