Biography

Dreaming of Eden is a melodic hard rock band based out of Northern Virginia. The group provides listeners with innovative, passionate songs that far exceed the boundaries of today's traditional hard rock stereotypes. They bring their stellar sound and jaw-dropping live show with a take-no-prisoners approach to achieving success and national exposure. Stemming from roots in the hardcore and emo scenes, Dreaming of Eden brings a fresh take to hard music. Driving riffs and distinct back beats layered with powerful vocal and lyrical content are what set Dreaming of Eden apart. In a world of screamers the quartet presents a new side to hard rock with noteworthy melodies while offering a high amount of energy that is difficult to rival.

The band is currently on a full national tour of nearly 40 dates all across the country with Eyes Set To Kill (Break Silence Recordings), LoveHateHero (Ferret Music) and The Word Alive (Fearless Records). The tour is sponsored by Revolver Magazine, AP Magazine, Schecter Guitars, Daisy Rock Guitars, EMG Pickups, Ernie Ball and more.

They have also shared the stage with such bands as Three Doors Down, Saving Abel, Mercy Mercedes, Deepfield, Meriweather and more.

The band released their sophomore album entitled 'Truth in Silence' in April of 2009. The album was produced and mixed by esteemed producer/engineer Drew Mazurek (Linkin Park, H.I.M., Nothingface). This is a follow-up release to their first full length release in May 2007, '…And They Will Live Forever' Their first release received rotation on 150+ college radio stations across the country and they recently gained licensing for television from shows such as MTV's Road Rules, MTV's Scarred, USA Network's Dr. Steve-O, Oxygen Network's Bad Girls Club and VH1 Network's Old Skool. Also, the band recently completed a photo shoot with Douglas Sonders (Nickelback, 3 doors down, Evanescence).

Lyrics

Honestly

Written By: Dreaming of Eden

Coming to terms with the Spirit I’ve heard who is telling me right from wrong/As the pressure rises my lips are trembling before the words leave my mouth/Honestly the right thing is telling you that I’m wrong/Brace yourself the truth will set you free/So this is a heightened state of mind when I realize all that I have done/The fear that resides is only a place for lies and I’m shaking inside as this fire dies/As the pressure rises my lips are trembling before the words leave my mouth/Secrets are never as safe as they seem/They tear at the walls of our hearts/I swear I always will, with love I call to you/I swear I always will, this love I offer you/It is our time to recognize: it’s not our end, it’s where we begin

Breathing For The First Time

Written By: Dreaming of Eden

As shadows leave this hollow heart behind a conscience whispers/“Oh son, I’ve known you for so long now, it’s time to change your ways”/“Put down your dreams and follow me you’ll see that there is a purpose for your life that comes with the changing of the tides”/Take a good look at life, does it make you satisfied to see your right where you left off?/If all we were was lost now found, how should we change our lives?/Forced to stand in place or move forward, I have to choose to change my ways and put my dreams aside/You see that is hard for me/It must be in so many ways I’ve been deceived because the robber’s delight is to see that I’ve bled/Our father is changing me to be like the man I’m meant to be/Our father is changing me to be like the man I’m meant to be

Who We Are

Written By: Dreaming of Eden

All these judging philosophies does that make me a Pharisee?/Oh how I take the bribe and kiss the martyr hello then goodbye/Or maybe I am just the one who aspires to be the one true friend but then I stab you in the back three times in the end/Terrified of “Who am I?”/with all I am inside I push away all the lies/there will be love in time/Casting lots without reason, am I right or is this treason?/As the innocent dies the mocking crowd arrives/Am I the Father, the mother, the brother? More likely a cynic no other/Even if I wash my hands of this the facts still exist/There will be love in time but who are you when you read the lines?/There will be love in time but who are you in the story of life?/Make no, make no mistake, we are, we are all, we are all the same/Make no, make no mistake, we are, we are all, we are all the same

I Am The I AM

Written By: Dreaming of Eden

I’ll be your shelter amidst the storm and carry you through the hardest times/When there is hope-loss I’ll lead the way and find a path that is worth searching for/I am the light that shines right through you, shining brighter than the sun above/I am the voice that speaks life to you, with words deeper than the oceans wide/When darkness comes I’ll be the one for you to run to when all seems gone/I’ll be the rock for you to lean on, when there is no place to stand I will be there/Tears down the walls, but don’t let it burn out/Your safe from the fall, but don’t let it burn out/ I am a fire burning so don't let me burn out

Sing The Words

Written By: Dreaming of Eden

Taking action in the moment we first heard you say our name/Your calling us to be your sons and above all bring glory and not our fame/To be a light and show the world the way to your road/We listen to your call and give you everything we are/ We sing the words that fill all our hearts with love, we offer this up to you/We tell the world who fills all our hearts with love, preparing a way for you/Your grace has found us here where we stand and it knocks us to our knees/With this gift of love we find all of our hopes and all of our dreams now/We make the most of every place and every situation/We listen to your call and give you everything we are/The heavens rejoice as the voices sing louder and louder, our hands reaching higher/The heavens rejoice as the voices sing louder and louder, our hands reaching higher
