This week we are excited to bring you a band that we saw for the first time, back in December when /they opened for Kix in Brunswick, Maryland. Simply put, we were blown away and were /ager to bring them to you guys as one of our featured bands of the week!
Hailing from Maryland, Silvertung is comprised of vocalist Speed, lead guitarist Codey, bassist Skoot,
and drummer Danno, and have created a tremendous local buzz on the strength of their live show, which has seen the quartet share the stage with countless national acts, including Godsmack, Disturbed, Shinedown, Slipknot, Staind, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Filter, Drowning Pool, and P.O.D., among countless others.
When Silvertung released their last single, “Never Too Late” it spawned their first Billboard Top 40 Mainstream Rock Chart hit! Coming off this success, the band continued to tour in support of the track including performing on the main stage at several festivals such as the Carolina Craft Beer & Music Fest (NC), Shiley Acres (WV), and the Shindig Festival 2015 (MD).
"Face The Music” is the first single from the band’s forth-coming release, entitled, ‘Out of the Box.’ Lead vocalist Speed said, “The title came from something our manager kept telling us – ‘to think out of the box.’ We’ve been experimenting with new ideas during our writing process. For the first time we walked away from the studio after recording the first two tracks, feeling like we really gave it all we have.”
‘Out of the Box’ was produced by Steven Wright (who has worked with everyone from Slipknot to Avril Lavigne). “Steven pushed us. He came to our rehearsal space to work with us on the material,” said guitarist Codey. “Steven watched, listened and pushed us. He knew how to bring out the best in the material we’ve been writing.” "We always look to raise the bar with everything we do as a band." Said bass player Skoot. “We always try to one up ourselves. ‘Out Of The Box’ is a big accomplishment for ourselves.” Drummer Danno commented, “I love the aggressive presentation of the new tracks and yet they retain some melodic elements. I feel our overall performance went to another level too. The first track, “Face The Music” sticks to the point, in your face without meandering.
You can download the single "Face The Music" here. You can also get their last cd, "The Devil's In The Details" on iTunes here.
