Ascending Rock Ensemble Marble Eyes Unveils Sophomore Album ‘Hunting with Comets’

By Stu Kelly / October 20, 2023

Rising to prominence with their signature “Rock & Roll for the Soul,” Marble Eyes, the dynamic quartet, is excited to present their highly anticipated sophomore album, Hunting with Comets. Rooted in the heart of the Northeast, this band is known for pushing the envelope with its unique blend of soulful harmonies, infectious energy, and complex musical narratives. Marble Eyes is composed of the following members: Eric Gould (bass, vocals), Mike Carter (guitar, vocals), Adrian Tramantano (drums, percussion), and Max Chase (keys, vocals). 

Born amidst the global standstill of the pandemic, Marble Eyes emerged as a powerhouse, proving the unyielding power of music to connect souls across any distance. Composed of seasoned touring professionals drawn from acclaimed acts such as Pink Talking Fish, Twiddle, Kung Fu, Particle, and The Indobox, Marble Eyes has created an album that encapsulates their collective creativity and individual prowess. The nine-track album was meticulously curated from a catalog of over 70 tunes. Each song chosen for the album was written during their groundbreaking “Marble Eyes Mondays” virtual pandemic livestream residency. The album showcases their masterful songcraft, intricate narratives, and signature melodies.

“During the first four months of 2021, the world was shut down due to COVID-19. We created an opportunity to present a bi-weekly livestream concert through Nugs.net and set up shop at The Press Room in Portsmouth, NH. We considered it a challenge to write and debut new material for every concert. The catalog of songs that are ‘Hunting with Comets’ presents this chapter of our story in a beautiful way,” said bassist Eric Gould 

The album’s leading singles, “Truth” and “It’s Your World (We’re Just Livin’ In It),” have already garnered thousands of plays across streaming platforms, providing a taste of the album’s vibrant energy and the band’s remarkable ability to traverse genres seamlessly.

“Truth” is an explosive affirmation of the band’s journey, featuring arena rock guitars and blistering instrumentation that will set any stage ablaze. On the other hand, “It’s Your World” is a buoyant track that blends harmonic interplay and sprightly bass riffs, underpinned by a calypso drum beat that invites listeners to the dance floor.

Bassist Eric Gould adds, “We tracked the entire album at a Summer Camp in New Hampshire. We turned one of the cabins into a recording studio. It was an incredible experience! We would spend all day recording these tracks while playing around the camp and having a blast. For ‘It’s Your World’ in particular, Adrian’s inspiration led him to find unique percussive ideas and laid down many awesome layers.”

As Marble Eyes embarks on their fall tour this October and November, fans can look forward to experiencing the new album live. The tour begins tonight, coinciding with the album release in Burlington, VT. The band will also visit Ardmore, PA, Portsmouth, NH, Bridgeport, CT, Denver, CO, and more cities yet to be announced.
