Silent Civilian Returning With New Album and Tour

(Century Media) Brutal, intense, uncompromising and unrelenting are just a few words that one will use to describe the vicious new Silent Civilian album, which is set for an early 2010 release. Silent Civilian embarks on a massive North American headlining run on August 24th.

The band stormed onto the metal scene with their stunning debut offering, Rebirth of The Temple, in 2006 led by Spineshank vocalist Jonny Santos, who used this platform to unleash all of his inner demons. This was an extremely aggressive outing that took the scene by storm and its follow-up looks to take everything to the next level. This is the new wave of thrash metal and you can check out some new demo tracks more. Stay tuned to that link over the next few weeks for a slew of new video footage documenting the making of this highly anticipated new album.

“Musically, this record is very different from the last, but evolution is the key to longevity in my eyes. I believe we are making a record that will retain what is the main essence of SC, but maturing greatly pushing forward. Having another guitar player contribute more to this record as opposed to the last, in which I wrote 90% of the music, is a plus. This record is also much more violent than the last and will be less produced in the sense that I am really trying to capture the elements of a ‘live’ thrash metal band on tape. There is not much room to breathe with this one, and I want to sonically beat the s*** out of the listener without losing their interest. Dynamically, it will be a roller coaster of beatings and abuse! Don't get me wrong, we will still have very melodic moments as well, because melody has always been a strong part of metal. I am going with a lot of very traditional thrash metal riffs, because I don't really listen to very many newer bands out of fear that I will be influenced into sounding like the band of the week. I would rather be influenced by the bands that pioneered this genre of music (Testament, Exodus, Kreator, Death Angel (my favorite), Forbidden, etc) I promise that this new SILENT CIVILAN disc is going to rip your f**king face off.

“We also leave on a massive North American headlining run on August 24th, which I can’t wait for. I love touring and it's been a year and a half since we've been on the road. With new bassist Shaun Fieler and guitarist Dave De La Cruz returning to the band, I believe we will have an extremely dynamic and solid live show. Dave is playing better than ever and Shaun is just an amazing musician all around. He is a great singer as well, which is good when it comes to doing harmonies live. We will be hitting every major U.S. market, so head over to our MySpace page for dates. As far as setlists are concerned, we will be playing about 4-5 new songs during our set in support of the new release. In the meantime, we have Posted demo versions of the new songs on our page for the fans to listen to. We will also be posting video blogs of us in the studio to kind of give the fans an inside look at SILENT CIVILIAN and the progression of the record. We look forward to seeing you all soon.”
