Eric Arnold is the former front man and songwriter of Calm To Chaos (Horizon Records 04-10). The band best known for the Broadjam Hard Rock Top 10 singles "I Love You, I Hate You", "Lucid", and "Binge". They enjoyed many tours with the likes of Rob Zombie, Hinder, Ra, The Strokes, The Plain White T's, Bowling for Soup and many others. After publicity on national and college radio of their self titled debut they were voted by Connecticut’s Hartford and New Haven Advocates "Best Original Band" and "Readers Choice" for 2007. The band was also featured in many other publications doing interviews including Mikey G's spot in Drum Magazine as a drummer on the rise. The band broke up in 2010 while recording songs for their 2nd national release after two core members left the group for personal reasons and the death of a long time crew member.
Eric has also released one solo effort Dark New Day nationally on Horizon Records in 2008. Featuring the singles "I Wish" ft. Art Loomer, "So They Say" and "Wake Up" the album had marginal success. When asked about the album he said "It was a big departure from CTC. Only three tracks had heavy guitars, most of it was piano and acoustic guitar. It's the darkest record I've ever written and the hardest to record. I played everything you heard on the album and, along with John Francis, engineered and produced the album.
In 2010 Eric released an EP with his side project Silent Reverie called "Beginings To The End". Put together as somewhat of an area super group, the EP was a one off effort but did enjoy success released nationally on Hollow records. That wasn't all for Eric in 2010 though. He was also featured on 2 tracks by Samwall Grimez "Tell Me" and "Everybody" and appeared in music videos for two others. Eric talked a bit about the project "It was a departure working in Hip Hop. Sam is a great artist and we became close friends."
In the fall of 2010 Eric decided that after nearly a decade of touring and recording it was time for a hiatus to rekindle his passion for music. Though technically out of music from October 2010 to December 2013, he still managed to write over 200 songs and release an EP titled So They Say. After nearly three years off he has decided it is time to get back to music.
