Coming off their 90’s grunge-influenced debut single “Slinky,” Raleigh, NC-based Alternative Rockers and military veterans Silence & Light are releasing their second single “Purple” alongside a lyric video. Both tracks hail from their upcoming sophomore album, Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda, arriving on June 23rd, 2023.
The band describes “Purple” thus:
A fast-paced musical memorial to those lost to drug abuse early on in the grunge music scene. It’s filled with lyrical references to many of our favorite artists who departed long before their time.
The band is comprised of former Army Ranger and Special Forces soldier and rhythm guitarist Jason Everman (ex-Nirvana, Soundgarden), former Delta Force Operator and lead guitarist Brad Thomas, former Marine Raider Tyson Stahl on bass, Air Force Chief Master Sergeant Fred Cowell on vocals, and Navy veteran Justin Myers on drums.
Silence & Light have championed non-profit organizations dedicated to aiding veterans and first responders and have donated over $5,000 in royalties to date, in addition to performing various benefit concerts across the country.
The band will continue their support by donating a portion of all profits from their new album and will also raise funds for the Marine Raider Foundation with a headlining record release show on June 23, 2023 at The Eagle’s Dare in Wilmington, NC as part of the city’s “Free Concert Friday” events.
Their upcoming album was co-produced by the band and Dick Hodgin (Hootie & The Blowfish, Corrosion of Conformity).
