Singled Out: Silvertung Tell The Story Behind 'Coming Alive'
After sharing tours and stages with Godsmack, Disturbed, Shinedown, Three Days Grace and so many other great acts, I realized, I wasn't just a singer/songwriter for a hard rock band, but I'm a big fan of this music!
I'm Speed, the lead vocalist/guitarist of the hard rock band Silvertung. In the past 3 years Silvertung has climbed mountains we never thought possible for a hard working blue collar band out of Baltimore. And we are just getting started! Our brand new release, "Devil's In The Details" features the single "Coming Alive".
While sitting in our tour van during on the 2012 UpRoar Festival, I was inspired the hard-working fans. Throughout the rest of the tour, I kept hearing this guitar riff and melody with the words Coming Alive. I started focusing writing about the hard working people doing the 9 to 5 thing and how much I could relate to it. Let's face it. When working for someone else, we need to dress and speak appropriately to keep our jobs. But is that really who we are? Not me!
We are who we are. When we're surrounded by those who we have a common interest…like a live rock show, life is exciting. We forget about work, paying bills and other 'normal' life activities. It's that moment right before we hit the stage, we can hear the roar of the crowd, or that moment right before your favorite band to hits the stage. You know -- that second the stage lights go down and the intro starts. That feeling you have at that moment.
That's when we all 'come alive.' Our first single, "Coming Alive" is all about who we really are. As a band, Silvertung, comes alive when we hit that stage. All the hard work writing, rehearsing, to bring are fans the best damn show we can. Doesn't matter what you do for a living, how much money you make…when you feel that 'high' in life, that's when you are "Coming Alive."
