Interview: Silence The Radio

Silence The Radio have a new release coming on December 1st. The band took some time to answer our questions about the new single, the music scene in Providence, and much more. Check it out!

With the band starting in 2015, it’s still relatively new. What was the main goal when you first started?

Our main goal has always been to pursue our passion, which is writing and performing music. That’s been everyone’s passion since we were kids.

How has that changed now that you’ve been at it for a couple years?

Most of the change has been in our writing style. We write a lot more now than we ever have before, and the songs we write have a lot more depth and a clearer style.

Being from Providence, RI, what is the music scene like there? Are there any challenges as a band that come from being from there?

The music scene in Providence has had its ups and downs during the years we’ve all been involved. All in all we’ve been incredibly fortunate to be able to work with some of the most amazingly talented people on the east coast, and we’ve developed a lot as musicians and as people by being involved in our local scene.

You recently worked on “Friendly Neighborhood Nightmare” with Chris Piquette. What was that experience like?

The recording process for “Friendly Neighborhood Nightmare” was a ton of fun. Chris is a great friend of ours, and he really helped us bring that song and that story to life.

You then did a video with Dan Fried for the song. How did that opportunity come about?

We knew Dan from his work with a lot of the other bands we had played with in RI. We got in touch with him and he helped us put together a solid concept for the video, then we filmed it all in about a day. It was probably the craziest experience we’ve had together as a band so far.

What can fans expect from you for the rest of 2017?

Our brand new EP, Friendly Neighborhood Nightmares comes out on December 1st on iTunes and Spotify. It’s a collection of the most powerful songs we’ve ever written and we can’t wait for everyone to hear it.

Thanks for your time! Where can our readers keep up with the band?
