The Golden Eagles are a melodic alternative rock power trio. They strive to make each song defy the style of the last and take on it's own identity. Life has many colors, flavors and moods and The Golden Eagles would like to experience them all while managing to have some fun in the process.

Biography

The Golden Eagles have landed. The Windsor based trio initially started in early 2008 as a casual jam band to keep the members busy after their respective band break-ups. Frontman Jamie Reaume(ex-Foreign Film Star) and Neil Tupling(ex-Lost Souls Division) met with drummer Geoff Yunker(Disassembly) and immediately felt the creative spark. It quickly became apparent that something special was in the works. About a year after their inception, an album worth of original material was recorded, packaged and released.

The Golden Eagles released their latest single Ballad of Humanity on Sharktank Productions' compilation album From the Tank. The song was released to over 400 radio stations across Canada and the U.S. and is currently vying for nominations with the Independent Music Awards, International Songwriting Competition & the Toronto Independent Music Awards.

Lyrics

Ballad of Humanity

Written By: Neil Tupling

In this world we gotta do the best we can
In this world nobody wants to be the lesser man
In this world we all wanna win the lottery
In this world nobody wants to help their enemy

Some people just wanna tear a brother down
Some people just wanna up ‘n’ leave town
Some people just wanna blame the government
Some people don’t know what the other meant

It’ll make an honest man lie
It’ll make a proud man cry
It’ll make a strong man weak
and make us turn the other cheek

In the end you gotta sell your soul
And in the end it’s just a six foot hole
That’s what you get for never lendin’ a hand
In the end you’re just a slave to the man

It’ll make an honest man lie
It’ll make a proud man cry
It’ll make a strong man weak
and make us turn the other cheek

We’re all just people, we’ve all got dreams
We’ve all got futures, we’ve all got schemes
We’ve got our plans, we’ve got our goals
We’ve got our allies, we’ve got our souls

It’ll make an honest man lie
It’ll make a proud man cry
It’ll make a strong man weak
and make us turn the other cheek

It’ll make an honest man lie
It’ll make a proud man cry
It’ll make a strong man weak
and make us turn the other cheek
