The american rock Earthless will release their new album "Black Heaven" on the 16th of March through Nuclear Blast, we asked bassist Mike Eginton a few questions about the band and their new album.
When did you start working on this album, how long did the process take from the first step to the final product?
We started working on the writing process for the new album in May 2017 and recorded it in last week of July 2017. So about three months total.
Are you trying to express something through your music?
I guess. I'm not really sure what, but I would say that we are expressing our collective energy. The music we make comes from the heart. It could be a celebration of love. A love for music to share with whoever wants to join us.
In your time as musicians, what is your biggest musical achievement so far and what has been your biggest experience through the years?
I'd say that our biggest achievement so far is longevity. We've been fortunate enough to be able to make music together for almost 17 years. I can't really say what our greatest experience has been. Off the top of my head, we played a few shows with Blue Cheer in 2008. It was pretty awesome to share the stage with such an incredible band. They were amazing. One of the heaviest things i've seen.
What would be the ultimate tour, festival or show for you to play at?
I think this coming Roadburn might be it. Most of our brother bands from San Diego are going to be playing. It's always a pleasure to play with family.
That’s all we’ve get this time, do you have anything that you'd like to add or say?
Much love to everyone who has supported us over the years. Thank you.
