Founded in 2005, CONCRETE EDEN started to become well known in their home country Austria. The original band consisted of frontman Mike, drummer Hannes, guitarist Erwin and bassist Tom. CONCRETE EDEN played various concerts, which were soon followed by a demo track called "M.i.t.y" which was enthusiastically applauded by the fans.
The whole track was produced, mixed and mastered by Mike Kostner himself, who runs his own record studio.
However, you have to experience live – only then you can understand the true CONCRETE EDEN experience! CONCRETE EDEN has already shared stage with bands like J.B.O, Kontrust, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter or Ektomorf. CONCRETE EDEN is famous for their shows full of power, defined by hard guitar riffs, pounding bass, forceful drums including rap and melodious vocal passages. Despite the consistently demanding musical songwriting, CONCRETE EDEN is a band that masterfully understands to include the audience in their show and thereby bring the noise to a maximum. Their loyal fan base is proof that their daring concept and musical style, which is clearly apart of the mainstream superficiality, can also convince a bigger crowd.
In January 2017 CONCRETE EDEN accompanied Crazy Town on their tour through Austria and played with them and other support acts in the Viper Room in Vienna or in the P.P.C in Graz. On 27th February 2017 their first single "gone to far (watch the video!), was released from the upcoming debut album "Left". In autumn 2017, Concrete Eden signed a record deal with the German independent label NRT-Records, which will release their debut album "Left" in January 2018.
