Eden’s Lie, another long time favorite, returned to the stage after a year-long hiatus while they went through some lineup changes and recorded a new album. Singer extraordinaire Jeff Richards and guitar god John Maggio found a good bass player in Nate Dean.. The new material is expected to be released within the next few months, although the band is introducing their live crowds to it now. The more mellow “Say” is a great song-very catchy, something people will love to sing along with. The coolest thing about Eden’s Lie is that they never get so heavy you can’t tell what they’re saying. The music and lyrics always come through clear. The beauty in their expressions of pain is true art.........Jennifer Brand

History: Eden's Lie was formed by drummer turned singer, Jeff Richards in early 1997. The band steadily played the local scene and released their first CD Listen in 1998. In 1999, with the release of "RESURRECTION," Eden's Lie's second CD, they participated in the ROCK101 Battle of the Bands, making it to the semi-final round and ventured out of New Hampshire to perform at venues in Maine and Massachusetts. Upon spending most of 2000 writing and recording, the band released a collection of songs from past albums and demo's called Eden's Lie 3 in February of 2001. Eden's Lie 3's first single "Shattered" received airplay from local, regional and college radio stations. In the beginning of 2001, guitarist turned bassist, Nate Dean joined the band to complete their line up and later that year Eden's Lie filmed a video w/ Cease Entertainment for their 2nd single "I Know Why" to be released in conjunction w/ their CD "BREAK THE SURFACE”, a collection of songs that showcase their ability to write original hard rock songs w/ melody and technical prowess.
