These Green Eyes

Tackling issues of friendship, loss, remorse, and ultimately hope, These Green Eyes evoke a far more visceral variety of emotion on their breakthrough disc Relapse To Recovery, boiling down five years of trials and tribulations as a unit, culminating with the tragic and unexpected loss of a close band friend to suicide.

Tackling issues of friendship, loss, remorse, and ultimately hope, These Green Eyes evoke a far more visceral variety of emotion on their breakthrough disc Relapse To Recovery, boiling down five years of trials and tribulations as a unit, culminating with the tragic and unexpected loss of a close band friend to suicide. The seeds of These Green Eyes were planted in 2003, when drummer Mark Brundrett, guitarist Greg Mauro and bassist Zach Braz met in high school and, based on their shared love of music, decided to create some together. After months of experimenting with a revolving door of members, a basic lineup coalesced…with the exception of a vocalist. Enter Colin Cunningham, a friend’s brother with the heart of a poet and an impressive set of pipes. Accepting the invitation to play a single show (at which he made up lyrics on stage), he continued showing up for practice and the band stopped looking for a singer. With a solid lineup in place, the band wrote and recorded a six-song demo and pursued a bona fide recording session with producer John Naclerio (Brand New, My Chemical Romance, Senses Fail). With four professionally recorded songs in hand, the band was passed up by the local labels they approached. Undaunted, they went on tour to disseminate the EP. The band’s friend JR (from Less Than Jake) felt the record deserved a wider audience and helped them get posted on the main page of PureVolume, where – just one year after fomenting their lineup – they were the second most listened to artist after Fall Out Boy. « hide
