"Favorites and Fledglings of Folk"

"Unable to suppress its taste for melody, Ghosts of Eden blends elements of hard-core punk with commercially minded heavy rock. The band hits hard as its songs build to anthemic crescendos..." - Jim Fusilli - The Wall Street Journal

Bio

"Great, melodic grunge rock with a vibe that's a total throwback to the good ole' days of the 90's, when flannel was in, the Towers were still standing, and we all still harbored a slight distrust for the Russians."

Formed in 2008 after years of playing in the New York/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, Dream Theater 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 a year, GOE has accomplished what some only dream of. From being invited to grace the stage at New York City's famed Gramercy Theater and Highline Ballroom to playing multiple shows at Six Flags Great Adventure and an in-house promotional performance at Best Buy and Hot Topic, Ghosts of Eden is quickly on the rise.

GOE completed recording their self-produced debut EP "Ignorance & Lies" at Big Blue Meenie Studios (Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, Helmet, Local H, Bouncing Souls, The Misfits, etc.) All songs were written, arranged and produced by the band. "Ignorance & Lies" was released on January 16th, 2010 to rave reviews by critics and fans alike.
