Multinational melodic metal band Eden's Curse will return with its third studio CD, "Trinity," on March 18th via AFM Records. Eden's Curse has announced that leading the Curse Choir this time around is none other than Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie. LaBrie lends his backing vocals to the entire album and also duets with Eden's Curse front man Michael Eden on the track "No Holy Man," which is also set to be released by AFM Records as a digital single on February 25th. A promotional video is currently in production as well.
Michael Eden states: "James recorded the 'Trinity' sessions at Iguana Studios in Ontario straight after he finished his solo release, 'Static Impulse', which was perfect timing as he headed off on tour with Iron Maiden immediately after. "
James LaBrie himself adds: "In 2010 I was fortunate to discover Eden's Curse. I absolutely love this band. Great players and people and they deserve nothing but huge success. They belong with the best of today's music. Trust me, you're going to love this from beginning to end."
Bass player and main songwriter Paul Logue explains: "James was highly professional, as you'd expect, extremely approachable and very enthusiastic about our music. We sealed the deal very quickly and we got him in top form as he was also in the middle of recording and we feel the end results are breathtaking."
Michael Eden further adds: "'Trinity' has been a long time in the making as we always strive to bring our current fan base and new fans our very best. I spoke with James LaBrie backstage on the Iron Maiden tour last summer and we had a great conversation. James has a way of making you see things in a different light than other people. It was an honor to have him along for the ride and we hope that it is not the last time we work together."
Eden then goes on to add, "We still have more cool surprises we will announce soon, this party is just getting started."
A 90-second clip of "No Holy Man" is available at the Eden's Curse official MySpace page.

Melodic metallers Eden’s Curse have released a digital single of their ballad “Man Against The World,” with 100% of the profits being donated towards charity. The profits will go to the two homeless charities shelter.org.uk in the U.K. and feedthechildren.org in the USA.
Songwriter Paul Logue commented, "We receive emails from our fans time and time again, but none moved me more than the one I received from Jared Hochstettler. He put together a montage on You Tube featuring some really powerful images of homeless men, women and children. It stopped me dead in my tracks and made me think about how fortunate I am. Right there and then I decided to do something about it and I’m delighted to gain the support of my band mates, record labels and Music By Mail in Germany, who assisted us with launching the track onto the worldwide portals, with a view to raising some money to help Shelter and Feed The Children. I urge everyone to simply watch the video and if you feel as moved as I did buy the download and do your bit to help ease the suffering of those less fortunate than ourselves.”
