Debut single ‘Tear The Sky Wide Open’ from Silverthorne has reached the top 20 in the iTunes UK Rock Chart on release and is proving to be a huge hit across the board, promising more good things to come from the new band formed by celebrated drummer Brian Tichy.
The teaser video for the track received over 20,000 views in its first 24 hours of release across the band’s social media platforms. That figure doubled the second day. Rather an amazing result for a brand new act.
Tichy, of course, has played with everyone from Whitesnake, Ozzy Osbourne,Slash, Billy Idol to Foreigner, the list goes on. Silverthorne came together when he and vocalist/guitarist Pete Shoulder decided to finally collaborate on some songs together, with bass player Daniel Spree completing this new power trio, who signed with the Golden Robot Records label.
Their influences ranging from deep blues to hard rock, and acoustic folk to metal, when asked to describe their sound, Silverthorne replied, “With our studio located in the sprawling canyons on the outskirts of Los Angeles, the canyons and surroundings have an effect on the music we make.
“That atmosphere gives us space and solitude to focus on creating music with openness and freedom. No rules, no distractions, no limits!”
Referencing other bands, they commented: “You may hear elements that are not unlike being at a Led Zeppelin concert with Cream and Free opening, while Soundgarden and QOTSA hang at the bar.”
‘Tear The Sky Wide Open’ proves a soulful and earthy rock song that bodes well for the band’s forthcoming debut EP. You can watch the video for it right here at RAMzine, Stream and buy the song by clicking here and keep an eye for what happens next with this new band.
