interview with Gordon
Alan - Thanks for being able to make a interview for our medium.
Gordon - You are very welcome, Alan.
Alan - Who are you and who answers questions?
Gordon - Gordon Tittsworth, founder and lead vocalist of Images of Eden. I also play rhythm guitar on the album.
Alan - How many times were u playing in Czech Republic?
Gordon - Well, to date music has been played there but we have not yet had a chance to play live in the Czech Republic. Our goal is to get to Europe and hopefully on a full tour after our next album is out.
Alan - Where can we check you out?
Gordon - Our music is all throughout all retail/ online/ digital platforms (iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc). Our “one-stop-shop” is our website- www.imagesofeden.com. We have an audio/video page as well as an online store at the site. We are also on all social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc) so check us out there and hit us up.
Alan - When someone would have interest in your concerts in Czech Republic, where they can hit you out?
Gordon - They can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find that on our website on the “Contact” page. That will put anyone in contact with us so we can start the planning the live show discussion so hit us up.
Alan – What is your last album, and what is your plan to do?
Gordon - On our last release (“Soulrise”), we were finally signed to a great label (Pavement Entertainment) that took us to national status here in the US. We went on a full US tour with both Doro Pesch (or Warlock) and Metal Church. It was a full coast-to-coast US tour. We also charted pretty high in US metal radio. All of this set pretty much us up to be in a good place for our next album release later this year, “Angel Born”. Right now, we are looking to get that out around 3rd quarter or so we will keep you posted.
Alan - Do you have any favorite festivals?
Gordon - We would love to play Wacken Open Air and Keep It True in Germany, obviously Metalfest Open Air in the Czech Republic, Alcatraz Festival in Belgium and Sweden Rock in Sweden. Those are dream come true gigs so we are trying our best to get to all of those one day.
Alan - You are a long time on a scene. Do you have any unfulfilled musician dream?
Gordon - Well, we are finally getting recognition that we had hoped for (well at are starting to) and definitely going to the next level. Our “Soulrise” album definitely helped us there. We also feel that our next album, “Angel Born” will allow us to do the things we have been waiting a lifetime to do- tour Europe, play festivals, etc. A big dream was fulfilled last year when we did our first live US tour with 2 major international bands.
Alan - What 3 songs do people want hear on concerts? and what is your opinion?
Gordon - Well, our fans are definitely expecting to hear “Shield Me”, “Harvest Day” and “Only Human” which are our singles, so we always make sure they are on the set list. The way we see it- if fans react favorably to certain songs, so we make sure they are on the list. I know as a fan, I want to see bands play the songs I like the most from the album.
Alan - What is your favorite 3 songs from you?
Gordon - Wow, this is a difficult question to answer as I have so many that mean so much and that are so personal, but if I had to pick 3, I would go with “Shield Me”, “And Then There Was One” and “Once We Believed” for different reasons but they are all very personal to me. However, we feel some of our best material yet will be from our upcoming album, “Angel Born”. So we definitely want you to check that out when it’s ready.
Alan - What do you want say to your fans in Czech republic?
Gordon - We very much hope to see you live sometime in the next year hopefully on a tour and/or a festival. Please keep requesting us on radio and keep pushing to get us over there for a tour. We are definitely doing everything we can, so we will see you soon.
