Interviews From The Edge: Ghosts of Eden Rock Gotham - Page 6
Tom: Oh my god yeah! Music videos used to be awesome. A few that really blew me away were Stone Temple Pilots' "Vasoline" and Alice in Chains' "No Excuses" and "I Stay Away". Also, Pearl Jam's "Jeremy" still sends chills down my spine. Nine Inch Nails' "Closer" video was pretty insane too. I also think all of the old Foo Fighters videos are great. I love that they didn't take themselves too seriously in their videos. I can see us doing something like that. We're way goofier guys than our music comes off.
Miles: Alice in Chains' "Man in a Box" and "I Stay Away" videos definitely left a long lasting image of this crazy, sometimes bizarre rock 'n' roll music that I love. Pearl Jam's "Jeremy" video was kind of a smack in the face/wake-up call as a kid being in school. I know it was based on a true story and it hit home considering that I was 12 years old when it came out.
Benny: GWAR videos and anything Beavis and Butthead watched. Nothing in particular.
Rich: Bjork. "All is Full of Love". Creepiest, coolest music video I've ever seen.
Will the next Ghosts of Eden release be another E.P. or a full CD?
Tom: It's definitely going to be an E.P. We want to make sure we're constantly grabbing people's attention and we also don't want to feel rushed to have to have a certain number of songs complete. We want to take our time and write the best material we can. That's how we work. If that's only 5 or 6 songs, so be it. Of course a full length is a goal of ours, but it costs a lot of money to record and we fund everything on our own, so we need to be cost effective as well. (hint, hint Sony!)
Miles: Definitely another E.P. is next. We can really concentrate on perfecting the songs with the limited time that we have together to write music. I would love to start recording sometime this winter.
Are you currently writing for it?
Tom: We’re always writing. It's more about when the time is right for us to get in the studio.
Do you have any dates in mind for its release?
Tom: Ideally, I think we'd love to get back into the studio at the end of the year and release something in early 2011.Continued on the next page
