New release Black River Rising is another taste of the pure rock delight that will be fully unleashed on Silverthorne’s forthcoming debut EP, Tear The Sky Wide Open, which will be released on February 21st, 2020.
Silverthorne are the rock band that people have been searching for! Producing a bombastic yet deeply authentic sound that delivers exciting, soulful and earthy rock songs Silverthorne manage to cross rock genres with ease, whilst still flowing smoothly into your senses.
The band tips its hat to the classic rock bands of yesteryear as well as looking firmly to the future and that future is looking exceedingly bright.
Featuring the soaring powerhouse vocals of Englishman Pete Shoulder (Winterville, The Union) and superstar drummer Brian Tichy (who has played with everyone from Whitesnake, Ozzy, Slash, Billy Idol, Foreigner and many more legendary artists), along with bassist Daniel Spree, Silverthorne recently delivered a monstrous debut single in the shape of Tear The Sky Wide Open.
The track caught the attention of fans and critics alike. With its ominous riff, huge chorus, driving bass, weighty drums and a groove that evokes the vast expanse of the Southern California canyons from where the band was born, Tear The Sky Wide Open has already got fans salivating. The teaser video for the track received over twenty thousand views in its first twenty four hours of release across the band’s social media platforms. That figure doubled the second day! An amazing result for a brand-new act!
Now Silverthorne deliver their second single Black River Rising (released November 25th 2019) and it is another riff laden beast of a track. Darker and more brooding than its predecessor; Black River Risin’ sees the band members dig extremely deep within and leave nothing behind on this track.
Silverthorne also says of its sound:“You may hear elements that are not unlike being at a Led Zeppelin concert with Cream and Free opening, while Soundgarden and Queens Of The Stone Age hang at the bar.”
Says Sentinel Daily‘s very own Gavin Strickmann: “It’s not often my jaded old ears get a good shaking from their slumbers by something ‘new’, but man alive Silverthorne have done just that! The band is rooted in the classic bombast of the seventies, yes, yet possessed of that indefinable freshness that so many ‘new wave of classic rock’ acts are so sadly lacking in. In an age of many pretenders, Silverthorne would appear to be the real deal- this is what we want!”
