Marble Eyes will issue their debut album, Return To The Roses, on October 21 via Color Red. The New England-based quartet previewed the LP with the single “Tollbooth.”

The newly minted supergroup Marble Eyes consists of bassist Eric Gould (Pink Talking Fish), drummer Adrian Tramontano (Kung Fu), guitarist Mike Carter (The Indobox) and keyboardist Max Chase (Amulus). With gigs for the national touring musicians sidelined by the pandemic, Gould and Carter — who lived close to each other — finally found time to jam, setting up in Gould’s driveway at a safe distance along with Chase on keys. The trio would become a quartet with Gould bringing in Tramontano and the band found instant chemistry, leading to a creative outpouring of 50 songs throughout the pandemic.

Armed with their new compositions, Marble Eyes got into the studio with the result being their debut album, Return To The Roses. The band previewed the record with the Gould-penned “Tollbooth.” Eric detailed the song in a statement:

I’m inspired by many different styles of music and have written songs in many genres throughout my career. The music that moves me most is the style of Rock & Roll that makes your body tingle with emotion, both instrumentally and lyrically. I wasn’t trying to accomplish this when creating “Tollbooth” but once it was completed, it fit that dynamic and I couldn’t be more pleased. This song set me on a major writing kick and the inspiration is still strong. I feel like it was the catalyst of a new chapter in my musical creations.
