NEW SONG AND NEW LIVE TRACKS RELEASED! - Edison's Children has released two of the live tracks from the Marillion Weekend, mixed and mastered by Mike Hunter as well as an all new song "Through The Ages". This is appearing on the new EP "In The Last Waking Moments... EP SINGLE" ... no not the album... the actual single of the song. Pete signed dozens of copies so if you want one signed by the band, we can make that happen for you!

EDISON'S CHILDREN'S FIRST LIVE SHOW WITH PETE TREWAVAS - Well it may have been the worst kept secret in history when Pete Trewavas called Eric Blackwood up to play two songs during his set marking the first time that the duo have performed live on stage, just before Marillion went on to perform BRAVE in the Netherlands. "Spirlaing and A Million Miles Away (I Wish I Had A Time Machine)" were performed in front of between 3,000 and 4,000 simply fantastic Marillion fans. What a great night... and as for Marillion, well there simply are no words to describe the intensity of that night. h was just brilliant and the band brought the album to life even better live than on the record. NEXT STOP... MONTREAL! Don't forget... 2 hour show @ Brutopia during Marillion Weekend - 2pm Saturday!

This concert is of bootleg quality at best. Therefore it is a name your own price item. Whatever you decide to give us is fine with us!

Pete realized that we released most of this during the Christmas holidays and many had to make family gifts a priority. So... he signed all of the back catalogue before he left so you can still get Pete Trewavas and Eric Blackwood signed CDs for all 3 Edison's Children releases!

What we can promise you is that this is a crazy, and not very politically correct fan club which is open to absolutely everyone. It can easily be joined here... (everyone is welcome!)

Silhouette which was supposed to be our signature song on "In The Last Waking Moments..." but was cut because it was too long (23 Minutes) is now 55 minutes long... and growing rapidly. It will probably come in somewhere between 60-70 minutes long. What a monster! Pete Trewavas said "I wish you could hear this right now, Children!" It is sounding quite spectacular. Yes... the new album will be a concept album. No, the theme will not be about aliens. However... something supernatural is quite possible! This is truly electrical in every Edison type of way... Merry Christmas Children!

Our collective heart goes out to you and your family...

1.21.12 Had a great (and very late) night in Staten Island NY with Anne of Rock Hard Magazine... at the West Shore Inn, listening to believe it or not... a great country singer by the name of Loren who rocked the house (don't worry... we're not going country... not even a little). Anne and Lawrence Gerard, Sandy Varnis-Alley and Wendy Farrell-Pastore created quite a ruckus, but I think we'll be allowed back again ;-). I of course was innocent in the whole thing. Please support Rock Hard Magazine! They will certainly be supporting us in the future, and making sure that everyone on this planet knows who Edison's Children. E.B. (p.s.... blackmail photos to follow...)

1.20.12 There is a bill about to pass in the United States called SOPA that would help smaller record companies like ours from getting our music downloaded illegally and from the russian mp3 sites that steal our music. We want everyone to know that our position is 100% that this would be BAD FOR EVERYONE! This bill that is literally designed just for us, would do nothing but give the government the right to censor the internet forever. DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN! Videos like this one of ours would cease to be available without lots of red tape and paperwork making it impossible for small bands to promote themselves. VOTE NO TO SOPA!

1.16.12 Pete T. would love to thank everyone for all his birthday wishes. He thought it was quite fab... An update on the video... We are now over 3,000 views! We have 11 days to go to reach our goal of 25,000! Please everyone... share it everywhere you can! ... and ask all your friends to share it as well!!!

1.13.12 Classic Rock's Prog Division has put just released this form asking people to tell them who their favorite band of 2011 is and when they mention new bands and releases... they don't even mention us... those buggers! So if you could... fill this out and send it in. to their email addy and tell them who the best band, best album, best new band, best guitarist, best vocalist and of course best prog icon and best prog hearthrob is... YOUR'S TRULY! (oh... alright you can put mr. "h" in for best hearthrob I guess). Tell these people to wake up because they're obviously missing out on who is setting the world on fire at this very moment! (where's me lighter?)

1.11.12 A new interview is now online as done by the great Steve Lazland of Prog Archives who recently completed a review of our new album, calling us "a masterpiece of modern prog rock" and "utterly brilliant". We figured it was the least we could do after that write up! The new interview can be found here...

1.10.12 Last.FM and iTunes have noted us for being the top "scrobblers" in average gains... meaning that we have had the most new listeners amongst Prog acts in the entire world on iTunes, Last.FM, Winamp and your XBox. What a fantastic little stat! Thanks ladies and gents and those who would never qualify as either!

1.6.12 What a fantastic review! Someone buy this man a beer... maybe a whole keg...

1.5.12 We hope you have all had a great new year. A lot of new things are coming your way very soon. Tomorrow we will be embedding a new 10 minute promotional video for you to watch. Also reviews are starting to come in on the new album and Prog Archives wrote up a 5000 word article about the new record that may be one of the best reviews we've ever read about well... anything.

12.26.11 To Celebrate the Holiday Season... Edison's Children has been HACKED! If you read this then we have been able to find the culprit and we have been able to reclaim the website, back under our control. If you are not reading this... well then things aren't going well at all!

12.24.11 It's the holiday season again and we're busy resting up for a big year ahead and from an amazing year that has past. Pete Trewavas is recovering from some surgery on his "trigger finger" and will be recovering over the next week or so, before concentrating on completing the next Marillion album. Edison's Children will be working on several things over the next few days including putting together a compilation video for YouTube. Hopefully we will have that soon after the new year. Thanks for everyone's well wishes and all the great things we've seen from all of you about the new record. I don't think we ever anticipated this level of appreciation. Keep the buzz going. If the record continues to grow as it has thus far, the chances of another record become all the more possible. Happy Christmas to you all across Europe and a Merry Christmas to you in America and a great Hanukkah. Have a wonderful holiday season from Eric and Pete and Wendy and Andy and Annick and everyone here at Edison's Children

12.17.11 Well it is official... Edison's Children CD's have washed upon the shores of Racket Records in England and have begun shipment. The CD is no longer on "Pre-Order" and is now in full production... those who order from this time forward will get their CD's shipped to them immediately (some even in time for Christmas). CD's across the pond in the United States will begin shipment on Monday 12/19/11 or Tuesday 12/20/11 and will be arriving throughout the U.S. most likely before Christmas Eve... and those elsewhere should be well before New Year's Eve even with the holidays. We hope you like them and happy holidays everyone.

12.9.11 And now... A Message from the King of Sunset Town...

"Hey. I'm really stoked, about how excited everyone is about our new album... how you are all talking about it on our Facebook page and in Annick and Andy's new Official Fan Club page. We've read about all the talk in the forums and on the boards. You guys have created some serious "electricity" about Edison's Children. No serious... you people are really what it is all about. Eric and I kept pushing the envelope and were hoping you would accept this project, no matter how far out we got (which was pretty far!). You've not only accepted it, but you've gone so far out of your way to tell everyone about it and create a fantastic buzz. We are feeling the love...
In fact writing this, I still don't know how much I should tell you guys what the album is really about. We sort of want you, to take this journey and decide for yourselves what is really going on. Either way, the main thing, is you are listening to it and enjoying the music. We both loved riffing and playing solo's off each other. Very cool! Well a few more Marillion shows to prepare for so I will catch you all later...
The CD Pre-Order is still going on, and our hope is to get everyone who did the pre-order to get you the new album well before Christmas and the holidays.
The instant downloads are doing just fantastic... so I thank you all!
Merry seasonal greetings from windy England!"
Pete Trewavas
