SILENCE EQUALS DEATH is a New Jersey hardcore band that uses its creations as an extension and expression of emotions poured out through music. Formed in 2011 after several of the members spent time together in successful hardcore mainstay act IN SEARCH OF (Stillborn, Scorpion Records), SILENCE EQUALS DEATH is comprised of vocalist Scott Earth, guitarists Fred Delacruz and Wade Culleny, bassist Brett Holloway, and drummer Ryan Bertone. With several multi-talented musicians hailing from diverse in their musical backgrounds and interests, SILENCE EQUALS DEATH keeps their writing process fresh and innovative. Lyrically the group finds it important to address social issues as well as using the platform to connect with listeners on a more personal level. On their anticipated full-length debut End Times vocalist Scott Earth confronts deep personal issues such the loss of a loved one on the song “Devotion,” and puts out a rallying cry of revolt on the songs “End Times” and “Peacemaker.” “Common Ground” celebrates the unity between the band and its fans, while “Hope” screams of perseverance in the face of adversity. End Times was recorded at Scorpion Studios in late 2016, mixed and mastered by Kevin Carafa with additional mastering by Michael White, and artwork by Carlo at Kill Carlo Boy Designs. They have shared the stage with many notable acts including, LEEWAY, FULL BLOWN CHAOS, ENDWELL, ENSIGN, MARAUDER, SHAI HULUD, ANTIDOTE, BRICK BY BRICK, ALL OUT WAR, CROWN OF THORNS, and many more.
