Saratoga, NY – Raging Storm records proudly welcomes Silversyde to it’s roster of artists, heralding the return of rock and roll to an indie label most recently known for it’s growing armada of heavy metal bands. Female fronted band Silversyde has a fiery stage presence, passionate song hooks and a drive to reach out and touch their audiences with their message.
As with most signings at Raging Storm, the new relationship came about as a result of timing, mutual trust, and ultimately a sense that larger forces were at hand. “I cannot lie, I was very hard on Silversyde the first time I spoke with them”, states label owner Jason Scannell. “Truth be told, I wouldn’t spend much energy on a band that I didn’t feel had the talent. Some musicians can’t stand criticism. Silversyde took our opinions, processed them, and made their own decisions on how to improve their band. That to me is a sign of an artist who takes their band, and their minsitry, very seriously. Over time, working together became one of those partnerships that just felt right.”
Lead singer Laura Jones adds “We have worked so hard to get where we are, and are extremely excited to be joining forces with Raging StormRecords. “We can’t wait to see what the future will unfold!”
Silversyde recently finished recording their label debut at Halo Productions, with mastering handled by Gateway mastering in Portland, Maine. The new album “Circus Circus” will be available on Raging Storm Records August 2.
Birthed from turmoil, chaos, and despair, Silversyde is a metaphor about finding hope in the worst of circumstances. The resounding anthem of Hope, Eternity, Love and Purity (H.E.L.P.) is the focus of the band and what their music is all about. “We are the underdogs, the people who never quite fit in, and now through our genuine, raw, and emotionally gripping music we want to help other ‘outcast and hurting souls find healing & restoration.’
Their lyrics tell a story of release from spiritual havoc, physical pain and mental anguish which were products of having been beaten down by excessive bullying in High School, physical abuse and sexual assault which led to self-destructive behaviors such as cutting, drug addiction and multiple suicide attempts. We had been tormented mentally with clinical depression, constant suicidal thoughts, eating disorders, protracted verbal abuse and reinforced negative mind sets of body image, worthlessness and finding identity in pain.
Silversyde rocks with purpose, hope and inner strength, and invites you to come along for their journey.
