With 2018 being the 10 year anniversary since the inception of melodic rock band, Silent Season, they ended 2017 on a high note. With the release of their newest single, “Stars,” Silent Season is continuing to mark their territory as a force to be reckoned with in the rock world.
“We selected a band name which has depth to it, an emotional play.” says drummer Dave Pappalardo. “There is not exactly a wildfire of new music happening right now, and as musicians we have to stay positive. Silent Season is starting a movement – holding the torch for bands which influenced us, with a sound uniquely ours.”
After releasing their debut album in 2012, many people have quickly taken notice of the bands talents. With support from Sirius XM Octane, Music Choice, Nikki Sixx’s Sixx Sense and a variety of terrestrial stations, the band has been able to develop a very stable fan base. Since releasing their first single, ‘Chance,’ the song made it to the #1 spot on Music Choice’s Metal channel in one week, opening a variety of doors for Silent Season.
An impressive feat to the say the least, the band has since gone on to perform with such heavy hitters such as Black Veil Brides, Lacuna Coil, Powerman 5000, Scott Stapp, Trapt, and many more.
With their newest song, listeners are quickly impacted by the power that the band produces with the heavy guitar riffs courtesy of guitarists Brendan Sheehan and Anthony Puliafico Jr. Equally matched with the back up rhythms by bassist Jay Driscoll ad drummer David Pappalardo, the music serves up a plate of excellence, as singer Jeremy Rae provides a great blend of intensity and softness in his vocals, giving the song a similar resemblance to that of bands such as Five Finger Death Punch and Killswitch Engage.
With 2018 underway, the sky is certainly the limit for Silent Season as they look to release a new EP later in the year. While no tour dates are locked down yet, fans are hoping that dates will be added to their schedule. As time goes on, fans will be excited to see what’s next for the band, both in the studio, and out.
