A new melodic supergroup? Well, in a way, yes! EAST TEMPLE AVENUE came into being in 2018. It’s the “baby“ of Australian Darren Phillps (g) who collaborates with the well-known Swedes Philip Lindstrand (g, FIND ME, ARKADO), Dennis „Butabi“ Borg (b, CRUZH) and Herman Furin (d, WORK OF ART) as well as with the mighty voice of American Robbie LaBlanc (v, FURY, FIND ME, BLANC FACES) and fellow Australian Dan Skeed (keys/g, URBAN STONE). They deliver nothing but an AOR/melodic milestone. EAST TEMPLE AVENUE might not have met in person but they definitely speak the same language musically. Let alone ´“Don’t Make Believe“, “My Last Breath“ or “When I’m With You“ shine. The ballads “The End Of Me“ and “Where Love is“ are simply amazing, too. And then there are those JOURNEY moments in „Everything“. “Both Sides Of Midnight“ offers a great production, absolutely no fillers and stellar musicianship. Those are the key points here. Please more, guys! Stadion rock-like anthems and emotional tunes which will definitely stand the test of time.
