Sardinas Explains What Took So Long
An excerpt from the interview follows below : Nightwatcher's House Of Rock : You have a brand new album, 'Eric Sardinas And Big Motor' out on Steve Vai's label Favored Nations, which is your first album since 2003's 'Black Pearls'. Why did it take 5 years between albums, and are you happy with the response the album has been getting so far?
Eric Sardinas : The reason that there was that amount of time between releases was the fact that we had an incredibly strong tour schedule. For the last 12 years I've been on the road, 300 nights a year. The opportunities to record were scheduled, then things would happen that would make those opportunities not work out. Time passes pretty quick that way. There were a lot of songs and a lot of things which were envisioned for the record, but to make a long story short, the songs which ended up being on this album developed through that time. 'Black Pearls' was kind of a skin shedder for me, and I really wanted to raise the bar within myself for this new album. I think I'd have to say that I'm happy with the outcome of the record. - Read the full interview here
