A Silent Film

A Silent Film are returning to the U.S. this summer and announcing a headlining tour run, alongside a string of dates supporting Silversun Pickups. They will be playing Rough Trade on August 3rd in Brooklyn and then Mercury Lounge in NYC on August 5th.

Following the critically acclaimed release of their eponymous new album, the band has been out on the road captivating fans across the globe. Recently A Silent Film released the official video for “Something To Believe In,” the latest single off the album, and today is premiering “Something To Believe In (RAC Mix)”, as re-imagined by Grammy-nominated producerAndré Allen Anjos. Just ahead of the summer tour the band is offering fans a free download of the five-song EP Retrospective at Amazon Music, featuring songs spanning the band’s last two albums A Silent Film and Sand & Snow. For up to date information please visit the band on the web at www.asilentfilm.com.

The highly anticipated follow up to Sand & Snow, the band’s new self-titled album A Silent Film was recorded in their hometown of Oxford, UK over a five-week period following their unique and sold-out Secret Rooms Tour. Produced by the band’s Robert Stevenson and Spencer Walker, with assistance from Matthew Wilcox (Foster the People, Bethel Music), the 11-track album was very much a homegrown recording. Written in Stevenson’s house the two invited friends from across the UK and US who had played with them on tour to help with the sessions and recruited engineer Sam Williams (Supergrass, The Go! Team, The Weeks) on mixing duties, who also produced and mixed A Silent Film’s debut album The City That Sleeps.

Since it’s release, press have lauded the new album and revamped live show as “anthemically gorgeous”, a powerful blend of the band’s “propulsive rhythms and earnest lyrics.”
