Exclusive video premiere: ‘You & Me’ by Silvertung
2016 proved to be a monumental year for one of the most formidable new hard rock bands to come out of the East coast, Silvertung. The first single off their album Out Of The Box, “Devil’s Advocate,” soared up Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Radio’s Most Added List the week it was released and the follow-up singles “Never Too Late” and “Face The Music” each hit the Top 40 on Billboard’s BDS Rock Radio Chart. Today the hard rockers reveal their softer side with the premiere of the video for their new single “You & Me” exclusively on AXS.
“You & Me” is the only acoustic song off Silvertung’s critically acclaimed debut album Out of The Box. Upon release the track climbed to #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Radio’s Most Added List edging out veteran acts Korn, Blink-182 and From Ashes To New. The video pays homage to life on the road, taking viewers on a sneak-peek virtual tour with the band. Director Wade Spencer was enlisted to capture the spirit of the song and filmed the video on location in Blue Bell, PA.
The first thing that strikes one upon playing the video is the quality of Speed’s voice. He has a wonderful tone and the quality truly comes through on this stripped down song. It is fun to watch the guys joking around with each other, giving fans a glimpse into their personalities, which happen to be quite special and most definitely worth experiencing in person. Silvertung’s singer/guitarist Speed said, “When we came up with the concept for the video, we decided that we wanted to really show our fans what it was like to be on the road. Our fans are the reason why we have the opportunity to do what we love night after night. This is our way of giving them a backstage pass to our lives.” Silvertung’s devotion to their fans, the Tung Nation, along with the band’s hook-driven singles has facilitated Silvertung’s popularity soar over the past few years.
Silvertung wrapped up their first headlining North American tour in Nov. Check out their website for upcoming tour dates. Catch up with Speed, Skoot, Codey and Danno on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
