Silent Theory just released a teaser for its upcoming new single “Fragile Minds” which will be released worldwide on June available for purchase on June 7 and available for purchase on iTunes. The band, which hails from Moscow, Idaho, consists of Dakota Elliot Tyler on vocals, Scott Swanger on guitar, Bob James on guitar, George Swanger on bass and Mitch Swanger on drums.
Silent Theory was formed in 2008 by brothers, Mitch, Scott, and George Swanger, as well as Nick Osborn and Robert James. The band went from playing small local shows and parties to playing everywhere from Seattle and Tacoma to Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, with the crowning achievement being the opportunity to play the 2009 South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas with bands such as Metallica, Shiny Toy Guns, The Proclaimers and many more iconic bands. Over the years the band has played with other artists to include Burn Halo, Smile Empty Soul, The Veer Union, Jet Black Stare, Divide The Day, and Seasons After. In 2010 the band made an appearance on MTV Cribs, performing their single “Livin’ the Dream”, as well as headlined the world famous Whisky A Go-Go in Los Angeles, California.
They also signed with their record label, Turkey Vulture Records, in October and headed to Rockford, Illinois the following June to record their full-length debut album, Black Tie Affair. The album was released on October 31, 2011 and in celebration of the release, the band played the first ever sold out show in the history of the BellTower Concert House in Pullman, Washington. Since then, they have released their first single “Livin’ the Dream” to radio stations nationwide and are toured the summer of 2012 to promote the album. When asked about the band, drummer Mitch Swanger had this to say, “There is no question that this has always been our greatest passion. We were born to do this and I think it is greatly reflected in both the lyrics and music we produce, as well as the 110% we give every single time we set foot on the stage. This is our life.”
