Sons Of Silver (Ex-Pearl Jam, Ex-Skillet, Etc.) To Release New EP “Doomsday Noises”

Sons Of Silver, the band featuring Dave Krusen (ex-Pearl Jam), Kevin Haaland (ex-Skillet), Adam Kury (Candlebox), Peter Argyropoulos, and Brina Kabler, will be releasing a new EP tilted “Doomsday Noises” on June 26. The effort will come with five tracks including: “Rude Awakenings,” “Outbreak,” “Deep Division,” “Read ‘Em Their Rights,” and “World On Fire.” You can check out the latter two below:

Argyropoulos said the following about “Doomsday Noises”:

“All of these songs, including all of the lyrics, were written and recorded a few months before the COVID-19 pandemic.

There’s a lot of ‘shouting’ going on in the world at the moment, a lot of bullying, a lot of pontificating. The noise is deafening. These are the sounds of societal transformation. But they can easily be misinterpreted as social collapse. We probably should’ve put a question mark at the end of the phrase.”

He also added:

“We all love hanging out together. We probably spend more time talking politics, sports, food, family or whatever than we do making music. All those interests, all of those conversations, they make their way into the music. The songs are a snapshot in time of whatever happened to be on our minds. There’s some comedy and some tragedy; some dissonance and some harmony; some nostalgia and some abandonment; some punk and some rock. Even more, the fact that we can talk about anything and everything translates into a very comfortable and supportive musical environment. Everyone feels free with any idea and no one feels any idea is sacred. We’re all good enough to lead the band., but none of us is good enough to be the band. We allow space and time for one another to find our way. The EP represents where each of us was at along our journey together.”

Watch Cold, Crobot, Ex-Breaking Benjamin, Etc. Members Cover Temple Of The Dog’s “Hunger Strike”

Watch Cold, Candlebox, Etc. Members Cover Filter’s “Take A Picture”

Nick Coyle (Cold), Geno Lenardo (ex-Filter), Johnny Nova (Cold), Lindsay Manfredi (Cold), Brian Quinn (Candlebox), Aaron Fink (Lifer, Earshot), and Chad Szeliga (Black Star Riders) recently teamed up for a quarantine performance of Filter‘s “Take A Picture.” You can watch that below:

Coyle commented:

“I’ve always loved ‘Take A Picture‘ and was originally thinking of doing a duo acoustic version with just me and Geno of Filter. Lindsay, our bassist in Cold, is staying with Geno during this lockdown and wanted to be a part of it too so then I thought… who else do I know that would be into playing on this?

So, I reached out to Chad to see if he wanted to play drums, hit up my guitarist in Lifer, Aaron, to play keyboards and my old friend Brian Quinn from Candlebox to play acoustic guitar.

And then I asked my good friend and bandmate in Cold, Johnny Nova, to play electric guitar. Luckily, everyone was into it and excited to be a part of it. I am grateful that these guys, and gal, wanted to be a part of my crazy vision.”

Candlebox To Play Benefit For Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock Foundation

Candlebox have announced that they will be playing a special benefit show for Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock Foundation on May 19 at BLK Live in Scottsdale, AZ. Proceeds will go towards the Rock Teen Center. Kevin Martin commented:

“This is a cause that is very close to my heart. With music and arts programs being cut from our schools it’s now more important than ever to have organizations like Alice’s to make sure that our kids get the opportunity to experience these things. Who knows where I would have wound up if it weren’t for music? I think most musicians out there would agree.”
