Alternative Rock band The Days We Don't who are based in Kent, England.
Originally starting off as a 4 piece when they released their debut single in November 2013, The Days We Don't later became five following successful gigs at a number of established venues in the South East of England.
After representing the UK at this year's Global Battle Of The Bands in Berlin, The Days We Don't returned home to record their second EP Counting Sheep. Details on this along with forthcoming gig dates can be found on their website www.thedayswedont.co.uk or you can follow them on Facebook and Twitter at www.facebook.com/thedayswedont and www.twitter.com/TheDaysWeDont
With the Midlands having a long and rich history of delivering great bands, it is no surprise that Stoke rockers Alter Eden are delivering seriously good music and keeping the tradition alive.
Alter Eden have just released a video for the new single 'Colourless' which is taken from their next EP which is set for release in early 2017. Colourless is a great introduction to the heavy hitting yet accessible rock sound that Alter Eden are gaining a name for. Colourless can be purchased on iTunes right now.
Alter Eden explain the motivation for 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."

Originally formed in 2011, the band came into existence as a side project while the various members were still in other bands, they immediately hit the road and did a quick tour before getting busy with their main projects. Spring forward a couple of years and singer Nick Pilgrim and guitarist Alex decided to rekindle the fire and sought out a new bass player and drummer - Alter Eden was now their only focus. With the addition of Matt Latham and Simon Whitney, Alter Eden was ready to rock and went forth and did just that. A quick bass player switch in 2015 saw Aled Roberts joining the lineup and their debut EP 'Fearless' was written, recorded and released.
Alter Eden's direct, punchy sound has got the right ears twitching and afforded the band the opportunity to support bands such as 'Max Raptor', 'Black Peaks' & 'I Cried Wolf'. The band's ethos is 100% centred around providing great music to as many people, as often as possible. As far as the band is concerned, the fans are their bosses and the people consuming are at the heart of everything the band does.
