The new album "Broken Leaves and Haunted Streets" features re-recorded versions of the first five Autumns Eyes tracks ever written over a decade ago.
"Broken Leaves and Haunted Streets" follows the previous album "Please Deceive Me" (reviewed here) and is due out August 6th, 2013.
Band mastermind Dan Mitchell has now posted a track-by-track comparison of the original songs versus the new 2013 versions. You can read the full post and hear all the track comparisons at the Autumns Eyes website, or check out the first segment below:
"Broken Leaves and Haunted Streets was actually written back when I was seventeen years old and completely new to the songwriting process. I’d been a drummer all my life, and had more recently been experimenting at the time with guitar, bass, and piano.
"As a birthday and Christmas were approaching, my parents knew that I was in search of a new drum set, but instead opted to get me a different kind of gift in the shape of a four track recorder. They thought it would be a better investment down the line if I knew how to record and capture my own creativity, but I was reluctant to accept this idea and barely touched the device for the first year owning it.
"These five tracks became the stepping stones for Autumns Eyes, but over time they began to deteriorate as the only medium I had to preserve them was on audio tape. Finally after over a decade I decided to give these songs a proper home that will last an eternity. I re-recorded them just the way they were originally written, and preserved the same spark and energy that inspired me to start Autumns Eyes.
"Branches Across the Blinds: The intro to this song is what started it all. Once I dusted off the four track recorder given as a gift one year earlier, I decided to learn how to use it and start writing songs. The guitar wasn’t too familiar at the time since Id only been playing for about a year, so I started off recording this basic riff on the acoustic and the rest poured out like a faucet. There were so many riffs inside my demented little head, I had no option but to let the creative juices flow."
