Silence Rises formed in 2010 and set out to write a set of huge anthemic indie tunes.
Drawing on a rich song writing talent present between all five members, the band continue to focus their style in to well crafted, hook filled, venue filling music with huge towering bursts which take the listener on a dynamic audio journey.
Recent highlights include the band being selected by indie legends The Wedding Present to support them on two of their 2011 UK tour dates. The band were also selected by Tim Burgess and a panel of music representatives to play the 2011 Friends of Mine Festival. As a result of these fantastic opportunities and constant gigging around the North of England a real buzz is starting to form around them.
"extremely epic indie types"
Simon (Fierce Panda/Club Fandango).
"Really digging 'What do you Know'!"
John Richards (KEXP Morning Show).
"If you spun some pavement delivery and the concrete soundscapes that i love by grandaddy with a UK band shoegaze outfit fit to support Manchester flower power scene they would sound like Silence Rises. This may have been their game-plan developed in the boardroom of some dank rehearsal space"
"Throw down some Radiohead Bends era inspired guitar power and "Shallow Water" will help you get your rocks-off. Blues for a Dead Lover would be the case study for a well delivered execution"
