"Green Eyed Stare release “Sight To Behold”"

Whether intentional or not, the cover art to Green Eyed Stare’s new album “Sight To Behold” is just creepy. (Go to myspace.com/greeneyedstare to get the full effect.) It gives you the willies and then just parks there to keep giving them to you throughout the day. The mark of good art: it makes you feel something and stays with you.
The music on the album does much the same, sticking to you, wanting for your continuing attention.

Atlanta is already behind these guys and their hard rock music. Their next step is the giant step, onto the national stage of touring and playing for faces that have never heard of them or seen their intense live show. It is a challenge they are looking forward to taking.

Fortunate enough to have their talent noticed and be picked up by Callaham Records, they embark on this journey with the added advantage that label support can provide.

Last year Green Eyed Stare shared the stage with 3 Doors Down, LL Cool J, Hinder and Red Jump Suit Apparatus. This year they are working their way through a series of venue and college dates, reaching for those new fans and drawing them in.

Q. How did you come up with the name Green Eyed Stare?

A. Our label owner, John Callaham, named the band after his wife. We are cool with that since she is hot.

Q. Describe your song writing process?

A. Most of the time, we come up with the tunes first and then lay the lyrics down. However, “I Don’t Believe” was written first, then the tunes, which is probably our best song to date. Also, our new soon to be released, “Get To You” was written first and the tunes were laid down. This is without a doubt our best song to date…maybe we should start writing first and then lay the tunes down…

Q. How would you describe your sound to someone that’s never heard you before?

A. The Best Band you’ve never heard. Lincoln Park meets Nickelback with a hint of Cher…(Just Kidding about Cher)

Q. What was your most memorable performance and where?

A. Definitely Project Revolution in Atlanta. It was very exciting with lots of energy and people. It was very hot, too. Opening for 3 Doors Down was great too, but our other favorite shows were our own right here in Atlanta. Packed out rooms all shouting “Green Eyed Stare” before we take the stage is awesome. We really appreciate and love our fans.

Q. What are some of your influences for your latest album “Sight To Behold”?

A. Real life events. When you listen to every song, it is about someone in our band or label. It is very close to home and has all kinds of emotion. This is really the only way we know how to put together music…real life.

Q. How was it opening Project Revolution for Lincoln Park and being featured on MTV?

A. Surreal! Project Revolution is so big and filled with incredible talent. We were honored to be voted as winners by our fans and very much appreciated it. I was actually eating out when the video played on MTV and when the waitress realized that it was me, I ate for free.

Q. What are your goals for the upcoming year?

A. A lot of touring and the promotion of our new release. We are working very hard to become a national act and hope that we will be received by new fans around the country and the world.
