From Exile unveils 'Everyone Wants to Seem Evil' (acoustic demo)/video series

Posted By on Wed, Nov 10, 2010 at 12:00 PM

From Exile has launched a new series of videos that will illustrate how the group's song ideas evolve throughout the writing process. The series begins with this acoustic demo of the song "Everyone Wants to Seem Evil," and it's pretty fascinating to watch it all unfold.

Eric Guenther explains:

“Basically, we have a lot of musical ideas floating around since Monolith was written over 3 years ago now. The acoustic guitar has always been a central part of my writing process... I tend to write most of our music with it, at least in the first stages, and we have done an acoustic show before, which we thought went really well, so we want to do it again. The plan with this first song is to re-record it later as a full band/song arrangement for our next full-length. But since we also want to play an acoustic show occasionally as well as have an acoustic release further down the line, it made a lot of sense to give this music a middle checkpoint; something so that people can actually see a bit of how an idea progresses. The final version, both when we play this at an acoustic show, and the band version on record, will have vocals and everything else fleshed out. In fact, many of the guitar harmonies will be vocal lines.”

More of these videos will be appearing soon, but there’s not a regular schedule that the series will follow. However, the group has been recording 5 days a week for the last month and will continue to do so for the next 3 months, so keep your eyes peeled for more.
