Free Album... The Silent Years
History has shown us that occasionally there are people born in the same time and place whose collective existence seems more than coincidental. The Silent Years as a band name explicates the dynamics of the band before they could even speak. You see, Josh, Jonathan, Jeremy and Pat grew up in the same small neighborhood in suburban Detroit. During nursery school, their teachers were constantly scolding Jeremy for banging on tables and chairs. Jonathan, although quiet and reserved, spent all of his time sneaking into the music room and playing every instrument he could find. Patrick was seldom interested in what the teachers were talking about, and could be found attaching strings to the top of the swing set and recording what are now recognized as his first bass lines on to a cassette boom box. Josh was the real troublemaker of the class, always jumping on tables and singing into a pencil as the teachers rushed him off to the principal's office. The boys eventually went their separate ways in pursuit of specified knowledge. Josh went away to study poetry and literature, Patric studied audio engineering, and Jon and Jeremy pursued music. But each one of them had the group's best interest in mind, and returned to assemble The Silent Years. In early 2007,Michael Majewski and Cassandra Verras two of the most talented musicians in Detroit entered The Silent Years. With the addition of these old friends, The Silent Years has experienced a rebirth, and is making their most interesting and creative music to date. Throughout the band's long and complex history, there is a collective understanding that the journey has only just begun...
Christmas-- a time for eggnog, good cheer, and the only time of year that could get Fred Flintstone to willingly share his "Yummy fruity pebbles" with Barney Rubble. This Christmas, in keeping with the spirit of the season, The Silent Years are making their debut album a free download and you can download it from the link below.
The Silent Years are currently holed up in a studio from 5 pm until 7 am daily mixing their new album, "The Globe" with Chris Coady (TV on the Radio, Grizzly Bear, Blonde Redhead). Highly Recommended!
