Sorry, there are no Silvertung dates.
The Mid-Atlantic rock quartet is comprised of vocalist Speed, lead guitarist Codey, bassist Skoot, and drummer Danno. The band have created a tremendous regional buzz on the strength of their live show, which has seen them share the stage with countless national acts, including Godsmack, Disturbed, Shinedown, Slipknot, Staind, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Filter, Drowning Pool, Anthrax and P.O.D., among others.
Originally formed by Speed, the band had a few false starts. According to Speed, “Initially when I started the band, there were different players and it got to the point where I was all but drained. Then I met Skoot and he listened to some of the demo tracks and said, 'These songs are great. I want to help.' Not long after, we met our drummer, Danno and began writing new songs. We started performing local shows with nationals with a few short tours on the East Coast. We’ve had a couple of different guitarists that didn’t work, until we met Codey through one of our social sites. When Codey came in to audition, we knew before we finish the first song that he was our guy. He performed the songs with us like he had been in the band for years."
Finding Success is “Never Too Late”: Grammy Nominated producer/engineer, David Ivory (Ivory Productions) got wind of the band and invited Silvertung to a session at his secluded Dylanava Studios in Gwynedd Valley, PA. Ivory has worked with some of music’s biggest names – touching upon a variety of genres in the process. Focusing on songwriting, arrangement, David’s unorthodox style, waving his arms and shouting worked for Silvertung! The collaboration spawned the band’s first radio break-through hit “Never Too Late” hitting the Billboard Top 40 Mainstream Rock Chart hit!
Thinking “Out Of The Box”: ‘Out of the Box’ was produced by Steven Wright. Wright took the band on a creative musical journey they needed in order to set them apart. “We wanted to pull out all the stops on the new material,” said Codey. “We’re writing songs that will keep the listeners on their feet…you could say the new stuff is ADHD…like me!”
Drummer Danno commented, “I love the aggressive presentation of our music and yet we still retain some melodic elements. A track like, “Face The Music” is an anthemic song that sticks to the point – it’s a slap in your face with a heavy rhythm section.”
Reviews have been stellar, as evidenced by this quote from Russ Mottla, syndicated Radio Host of Scorch, Mikey & Russ of www.RockAllNight.com“Loved the video, loved the song! Great pop song wrapped up in a bad ass rock band – secret to success!”
The band has been touring across the Mid-West, Mid-Atlantic, North East and South including performances on the main stage at several festivals such as the Carolina Craft Beer & Music Fest (NC), Shiley Acres (WV) the Shindig Festival (MD). “We love to catch a tour with another band,” said Codey, “but if not, we’ll go out ourselves. Our goal is get on that stage and kill every night.”
