Silver


SILVER
release their debut album today,
XLVII

The album features their latest single, Broken, which came out last month, chunky guitars with a tune to match.

Formed last year, Simon Clarke and Ciaron Marlow are everything that is Silver.
They released their first single in January, a cover of the Lennon penned Dear Prudence, and have since continued writing and recording their own material culminating in this long player.
They have both been long time Ant fans and have continued to spread the word with their live performances as Antflavour, Antmuzic and other such bands around the country and regularly at Ant Conventions.
The Ant influence is definitely there with Silver, they describe themselves as:

Glam meets Punk down Spaghetti Western Alley to the tune of feedback guitars
and with this they have produced a style that is all of their own.

The album is available on CD from today and can be found on all the major online download sites (iTunes, Google, Spotify etc) from 16th December
Check the band's links below for further details:
