Silvertung Sunday, May 27 | Rock | Ameriprise Financial Island Stage | 12:00pm
Since blazing onto the rock scene, Silvertung – have proven that hard work, grit and great songs are still the recipe for success in the competitive hard rock landscape. With just two albums and one EP released, they’ve amazing fans and critics alike by hitting the Billboard Mainstream Rock Radio Chart three times with their smash singles – “Never Too Late,” “Face The Music” and “You & Me”.
Their last single “You & Me” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Radio’s Most Added List, edging out such marquee bands as Korn, Blink-182 and From Ashes To New. It remained on the Charts for nine consecutive weeks peaking at #27.
Three of the band’s four videos have garnered over 250,000+ YouTube views and are still climbing. In addition, the band received two Maryland Music Awards at their 2016 presentation including, “Best Heavy Metal Band,” and the top award of the evening, “Breakout Artist of 2016.” Silvertung performed live at the televised event.
Success hasn’t come easy for this Mid-Atlantic quartet, comprising of vocalist Speed, lead guitarist Codey, bassist TC, and drummer Danno. They found their way to the top the good old-fashioned way – one show at a time. Continuously performing in and around the Mid-Atlantic area, the band built a tremendous regional buzz on the strength of their live show which led to opening spots with such heavy weight artists as Godsmack, Disturbed, Shinedown, Slipknot, Staind, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Filter, Drowning Pool, Anthrax and P.O.D., among others.
This buzz caught the attention of Grammy nominated producer David Ivory (Ivory Productions), who invited Silvertung to a session at his secluded Dylanava Studios in Gwynedd Valley, PA. Focusing on songwriting and arrangement, Ivory’s unorthodox style worked for Silvertung and the collaboration spawned the band’s first radio break-through hit “Never Too Late,” which hit the Billboard Top 40 Mainstream Rock Chart.
From there, the group went on to write and record Out Of The Box, which was produced by Steven Wright (Slipknot, Mars Volta, Rihanna), and resulted in the chart-topping hit singles “Face The Music” and “You & Me”.
In 2017, Silvertung took a departure from the roaring drum beats and hard guitar riffs they were known for and released Lighten Up. An all-acoustic album that featured stripped down versions of their biggest hits, it was quickly embraced by fans and critics alike for its raw emotion and honest look behind Silvertung’s tough façade. A riveting DVD documentary was released soon after to accompany the album.
The band continues touring the Mid-Atlantic, South and Mid-West territories of the States, while writing and recording songs for a forth-coming 2018 release.
