Leaving Eden | You’ll never know unless you try.

Welcome to Metal Digest!

Please describe the band in a single sentence.

Hi, I am Eric Gynan and it is my pleasure to chat with you here. 

Leaving Eden is:

Eve Lead vocals

Alyssa Bailey White Keys/Vocals

Jake Gynan Drums

Rich Chouinard Bass/Vocals

Eric Gynan Guitar/Vocals

A single sentence:  “

Leaving Eden, eclectic rock with harmony based in reality”.

What’s your latest project and what are you working on right now?

Leaving Eden’s new album

“As Above So Below” released on August 5, 2022 Dark Star Records/Sony/Universal/worldwide distribution keeping it just as heavy as the previous 11 Albums. There are some cool licks and tricks throughout.


That’s a John Lennon song we covered on the New album.  We also do “Silver Springs Fleetwood Mac Tribute” which is a blast. More info below on that.

How do you want people to feel when they listen to your music?


Major influences: Who put you on this path?

Ritchie Blackmore, Zeppelin, Sabbath, dimebag.

If you had to flee the country as a band, where would you choose to live?

Italy as I’m the first generation of my family born in the USA on my dad’s side.

What’s the ‘wow factor’ that makes YOU decide which songs to keep, record and release?

I really think it comes down to the melody of the vocals, of course how the rest of the music is gelling, but I think you can just feel the right vibe and know it’s a keeper.

What’s the most hilarious band memory you can think of?

Too many to not speak of but, and just when ya think you’d seen it all, well, every story I think of probably is best left private. What happens on the road stays on the road. Speaking of roads, it’s always hilarious when you end up on a dirt road. We always seem to end up on dirt roads while touring and you just never know what you’re gonna find, late at night, in the middle of nowhere, with no service.

What would be the title of the band’s biography?

You’ll never know unless you try.

What’s the next milestone you’d like to achieve as a band?
