Stoke rockers Alter Eden are set to continue the trend of Midlands bands becoming stars! The abnd, formed in 2011 as a side project while all still in other bands, did a quick tour before focusing on their main projects. Just a couple of years later, frontman Nick and guitarist Alex made Alter Eden their man priority and began hunting for a new drummer and bassist. 2015 saw bassist Matt Latham depart and replaced by Aled Roberts and they, joined by drummer Simon Whitney write, record and release debut EP Fearless.
Th quartet’s hard-hitting sound has seen them share the stage with the likes of Black Peaks, I Cried Wolf and Max Raptor.
What does the Oxford English Dictionary* describe Alter Eden as you ask? Well lets have a look;
Alter Eden [awl-ter eed-n]
1. An Alt-Rock band from the Midlands that sounds a little bit like a combination of Muse, Letlive, Black Peaks & Deftones.
2. A band that releases regular, new content all the time because they never did like sleep anyway.
3. A bloody good live experience that you should definitely see.
The band have released the video for new single Colourless which is taken from their forthcoming EP, set for release in early 2017.
The band say of Colourless; “When you look at all the great things in the world, all the things that really make an impact, they are all built on a platform of 100% investment from the creator. We don’t want to ever give anything less than everything in our band.
Colourless is about that passion, about why people dedicate themselves to a cause. It’s a song that encompasses what we’re all about as a band; focusing on the things in your life that give you meaning, that makes your heart race faster, and that gives colour to your world.”

Now if we go back a few paragraphs to the Oxford English Dictionary’s description of the band, you’d see that it says theyre “a bloody good live experience that you should definitely see”. Well lucky you because the quartet have some live dates on the horizon;

21st September – Nottingham – The Old Salutation Inn
24th September – Newcastle – The Rigger
6th October – Birmingham – Subside

*If the Oxford English Dictionary did bands, we’re pretty sure that this is what they’d say.
