Los Angeles alternative rock group SONS OF SILVER–led by Peter Argyropoulos alongside original Pearl Jam drummer Dave KrusenCandlebox bassist Adam Kury, Skillet guitarist Kevin Haaland and keyboardist and esteemed engineer Brina Kabler–have premiered the lyric video for their single “Deep Division” today, August 13. The track is featured on the band’s new EP DOOMSDAY NOISES which was released on July 26 via Universal Music Group/4L Entertainment.

Watch the artfully animated lyric video for “Deep Division” exclusively via Consequence of Sound who proclaim: “The song ‘Deep Division’ highlights Argyropoulos’ soulful vocals as a post-punk guitar riff powers the verses, leading into a melodic alt-rock chorus” here.

Argyropoulos 
explains how SONS OF SILVER‘s collaborative songwriting style, signature sound and collective years of experience make this track standout: “The lyrics to this song really speak for us as a band. We write and create our music, collectively. We celebrate collaboration. We’re careful to be inclusive and open to all thoughts and ideas. We embrace our differences. We respect and protect each other no matter how much we might disagree. We move forward together. We’ve learned that division is very destructive, and it begins when listening ends. So, we’re always listening.”

 

“Deep Division” follows three singles from the DOOMSDAY NOISES EP including the propaganda-driven lyric video for “Rude Awakenings and powerful music videos for World On Fire” and Read ‘Em Their Rights,the latter of which has garnered nearly a million views so far. The band also wrote, recorded and released a remotely recorded single and music video during the global pandemic, “Quarantined In California.” 
 

SONS OF SILVER carries on the rock ‘n’ roll tradition that stirs up dialogue and discourse, with rip-roaring riffs, bluesy rhythms and provocatively poetic lyrics. Under the previous name of Pete RG, the group built a catalog of two EPS–Lightning Strikes [2016] and Reaching for the Moon [2016]–and the 2017 full-length Tender Souls. Recharged as SONS OF SILVER in 2019, they served up the singles “Never Enough” and “Down.”

Los Angeles alternative rock group SONS OF SILVER today (July 17) released “Rude Awakenings,” a new video from their DOOMSDAY NOISES EP. The propaganda art clip captures sentiments that reflect the current state of the world with political imagery alongside the song’s strong lyrics. Watch the video here.
 
“I was stockpiling song ideas when I came up with the basic ideas for ‘Rude Awakenings,” the band’s frontman Peter Argyropoulos explains. “I wasn’t looking to finish anything. In fact, I was only looking for incomplete ideas that we would finish together. But then the basic foundation for ‘Rude Awakenings’ just came out. I played it for Brina along with a few other ideas the next day. She was really into it. But, I back-burner’ed it. I was unsure if it fit with the other songs we were in the middle of. Nonetheless, she persisted and won out. When the guys heard it, they said, ‘why didn’t we hear this sooner?’ I think it took us about twenty minutes to put it all together and take it to a completely different level than I’d originally expected it could be at. It really highlights each of our influences from the rockabilly rhythm section to the punk-bluesy guitars, to the Stonesy woo-hoos. A great team effort. Credit Brina [Kabler, the band’s keyboardist and engineer] especially for not letting the song slip through the cracks.”
 
SONS OF SILVER’s collaborative songwriting style, signature sound and collective years of experience is what make them such a standout phenom in the alt rock scene. Led by Peter Argyropoulos, SONS OF SILVER features original Pearl Jam drummer Dave Krusen, Candlebox bassist Adam Kury, Skillet guitarist Kevin Haaland and keyboardist and esteemed engineer Brina Kabler. Logging nearly 80 shows per year, the musicians were more united than ever back in the studio. On DOOMSDAY NOISES, songs spun off from jam sessions as a unit and the writing process relied on their musical interplay.
 
“Rude Awakenings” marks the third video released from the DOOMSDAY NOISES EP. It follows two powerful singles and videos: World On Fire” and Read ‘Em Their Rights,the latter of which has garnered nearly a million views so far and is climbing the rock radio charts. Listen to the EP here.

FORMER MEMBERS OF PEARL JAM, CANDLEBOX AND SKILLET
 
 
With their DOOMSDAY NOISES EP out today (Friday, June 26), vocalist Peter Argyropoulos of Los Angeles alternative rock group SONS OF SILVER breaks down the EP’s tracks below.
 
DOOMSDAY NOISES has been previewed by two powerful singles and videos: World On Fire” and Read ‘Em Their Rights,” the latter of which has garnered nearly a million views so far. Listen to the album here.
 
The group’s collaborative songwriting style, signature sound and collective years of experience is what make SONS OF SILVER such a standout phenom in the alt rock scene. In addition to Argyropoulos, original Pearl Jam drummer Dave Krusen (who was recently inducted into the Rock N’ Roll Hall Of Fame) and Candlebox bassist Adam Kury provide the backbeat while former Skillet guitarist Kevin Haaland and keyboardist and esteemed engineer Brina Kabler round out the band’s signature sound. Logging nearly 80 shows per year, the musicians collaborated more than ever back in the studio. On DOOMSDAY NOISES, songs spun off from jam sessions as a unit and the writing process relied on their musical interplay.
 
The DOOMSDAY NOISES track listing is as follows:
“Rude Awakenings”
“Outbreak”
“Deep Division”
“Read ‘Em Their Rights”
“World On Fire”
 
DOOMSDAY NOISES
Track-by-Track
with Peter Argyropoulos
 
“World On Fire”
Argyropoulos: “It’s a brazen commentary on today’s heated and embattled culture. It was inspired by current events and attitudes. I’m a politics and history junkie. I’m also a bit of a contrarian. Put those interests and traits together with today’s current events and, well, it’s hard not to feel inspired.”
 
“Rude Awakenings”
Argyropoulos: “I was stockpiling song ideas when I came up with the basic ideas for ‘Rude Awakenings.’ I wasn’t looking to finish anything. In fact, I was only looking for incomplete ideas that we would finish together. But then the basic foundation for ‘Rude Awakenings’ just came out. I played it for Brina along with a few other ideas the next day. She was really into it. But, I back-burner’ed it. I was unsure if it fit with the other songs we were in the middle of. Nonetheless, she persisted and won out. When the guys heard it, they said, ‘why didn’t we hear this sooner?’ I think it took us about twenty minutes to put it all together and take it to a completely different level than I’d originally expected it could be at. It really highlights each of our influences from the rockabilly rhythm section to the punk-bluesy guitars, to the Stonesy woo-hoos. A great team effort. Credit Brina especially for not letting the song slip through the cracks.”
 
“Outbreak”
Argyropoulos: “As with most of our songs, ‘Outbreak’ came from a writing-jam session. We were working on another idea and during a pause, Dave and I started playing the intro riff out of nowhere. Adam and Kevin jumped in and we were on our way. We hit a bit of a wall after awhile and couldn’t come up with a chorus. I remember trying a variety of things. We left it for the day with a U2-ish idea. But it wasn’t anything special. Still, we knew there was something there with the intro and verse groove and melody ideas. When we revisited the ideas a few days later, we were still unsure of how to move forward until Adam came up with the breakthrough idea for the chorus. Everything fell into place at that moment. I started singing ‘outbreak in a foreign land,’ etc. Kevin started playing his rock riff in the choruses and Dave had his Blondie (the band, not the airhead) moment with the 7/4 meter in the choruses. Once we had the main pieces in place, we played it over and over to refine our parts while I hunted for more melody and lyric ideas. Funny thing is, we settled on the changing melody phrasing in the verses because we liked all of them. In fact, I started following Kevin’s guitar part in the third verse because I thought it was better than what I was singing. One last thing I want to stress because of the sensitive subject, this song and these lyrics were written and recorded in October of 2019, a few months before the Covid 19 outbreak.”
 
“Deep Division”
Argyropoulos: “Another one of our songs that started from a writing-jam session. Out of nowhere, Dave’s playing his groove and I’m playing my static guitar part on top. Adam and Kevin give us the look of, ‘what’s this?’ We give them the look of, ‘we don’t know but don’t make us stop.’ In a matter of minutes, Adam’s got his sexy bass going and Kevin’s got his ‘Americanospehere’ (a combination of Americana and atmosphere) guitar going. We held that groove and chord for so long that any change would feel good. It’s the ‘James Brown Effect,’ hold tension for as long as you can on one chord and groove so that once you finally make a move, it’s like ‘hallelujah.’ Fortunately, the change we made was a good choice and the chorus was a keeper. As with the other songs, many of the key lyrics, including ‘deep division’ came all in these first moments of inspiration and work.”
 
“Read ‘Em Their Rights”
Argyropoulos: “I hope when people listen to the song it will motivate them to get off their high horse and stop with the finger pointing and name calling. It’s not just about our leaders, it’s about all of us. Rise above the heat of the moment and hold yourself accountable. We can’t give away authority to the authorities and expect to get very good results.”

Alt-Rockers SONS OF SILVER To Release ‘Doomsday Noises’ EP on June 26; Band Includes Former members of Pearl Jam, Candlebox & Skillet

 
DT:   JUNE 11, 2020
 
FM: MARCEE RONDAN/KELLY WALSH
 
 
LOS ANGELES ALT ROCK GROUP
SONS OF SILVER
SET JUNE 26 RELEASE DATE
FOR ‘DOOMSDAY NOISES’ EP
 
FIRST SINGLE AND VIDEO
OUT NOW WHILE “READ ‘EM THEIR RIGHTS” CLIP HAS ALREADY GARNERED
MORE THAN 600,000 VIEWS
 
BAND FEATURES
FORMER MEMBERS OF PEARL JAM, CANDLEBOX AND SKILLET
 
Los Angeles alternative rock group SONS OF SILVER have set June 26 as the release date for their DOOMSDAY NOISES EP. The group previewed the EP’s release with two singles and videos: Read ‘Em Their Rights,” with its simmering and swaggering punch, and the infectiously incendiary “World On Fire.” While the EP’s title is timely, vocalist Peter Argyropoulos says, “All of these songs, including all of the lyrics, were written and recorded a few months before the Covid-19 pandemic.”
 
 
 
“There’s a lot of ‘shouting’ going on in the world at the moment, a lot of bullying, a lot of pontificating,” Argyropoulos continues in describing how they came to the DOOMSDAY NOISES title. “The noise is deafening. These are the sounds of societal transformation. But they can easily be misinterpreted as social collapse. We probably should’ve put a question mark at the end of the phrase.”
 
The group’s collaborative songwriting style, signature sound and collective years of experience is what make SONS OF SILVER such a standout phenom in the indie alt scene. In addition to Argyropoulos, original Pearl Jam drummer Dave Krusen (who was recently inducted into the Rock N’ Roll Hall Of Fame) and Candlebox bassist Adam Kury provide the backbeat while former Skillet guitarist Kevin Haaland and keyboardist and esteemed engineer Brina Kabler round out the band’s signature sound. Logging nearly 80 shows per year, the musicians collaborated more than ever back in the studio. On DOOMSDAY NOISES, songs spun off from jam sessions as a unit and the writing process relied on their musical interplay.
 
“We all love hanging out together,” Argyropoulos explains. “We probably spend more time talking politics, sports, food, family or whatever than we do making music. All those interests, all of those conversations, they make their way into the music. The songs are a snapshot in time of whatever happened to be on our minds. There’s some comedy and some tragedy; some dissonance and some harmony; some nostalgia and some abandonment; some punk and some rock. Even more, the fact that we can talk about anything and everything translates into a very comfortable and supportive musical environment. Everyone feels free with any idea and no one feels any idea is sacred. We’re all good enough to lead the band., but none of us is good enough to be the band. We allow space and time for one another to find our way. The EP represents where each of us was at along our journey together.”
 
The DOOMSDAY NOISES track listing is as follows:
“Rude Awakenings”
“Outbreak”
“Deep Division”
“Read ‘Em Their Rights”
“World On Fire”

LA Alt Rock Group SONS OF SILVER Share New Track “Quarantined In California”

 
 
DT: MAY 22, 2020
FM: MARCEE RONDAN/KELLY WALSH
LOS ANGELES ALT ROCK GROUP
SONS OF SILVER
SHARE NEW TRACK
QUARANTINED IN CALIFORNIA
 
SONG WAS WRITTEN AND RECORDED REMOTELY
AMIDST WORLDWIDE CORANIVIRUS PANDEMIC
WATCH HERE
 
 
Los Angeles alternative rock group SONS OF SILVER were in the midst of preparing for the release of their upcoming EP when the global coronavirus pandemic brought everything to a quick halt. The result, a new track and video for “Quarantined in California” which has already garnered 68,700 views on YouTube. The band–Peter Argyropoulos: vocals, guitar, Brina Kabler: keys, vocals, Kevin Haaland: lead guitar, Adam Kury: bass, Dave Krusen: drums– wrote, recorded and filmed all from their homes throughout Southern California. Watch the video HERE.
“It’s one of those classic stories of a song that pops into your head in the middle of the night,” Peter Argyropoulos says. “I made a quick recording on my phone, sent it to the band and, the next thing I know, everyone’s recording their parts at home. Dave tracked his drums and sent them to Adam. Adam tracked his bass and sent everything to Kevin. Kevin did the guitars and sent all the tracks back to Brina and I. We did the vocals and mixed it and that was that. To be honest, I wasn’t sure we’d even release it, but Kevin’s guitars gave what was otherwise a campfire song, some Social Distortion-like edge. The video was frosting on the cake because we had no plan other than ‘have fun with it’ and, because of that, it genuinely captures each of our personalities. Shot on our iPhones, one take for each of us. The edit is raw because it suits the approach and the times. And no, the part where I push Brina away when I sing ‘social distance long at last’ wasn’t planned, but she did a good job of playing along.”
With their forthcoming EP Rude Awakenings (details of which will be announced soon), SONS OF SILVER carries on the rock ‘n’ roll tradition that stirs up dialogue and discourse, with rip-roaring riffs, bluesy rhythms and provocatively poetic lyrics. Under the previous name of Peter RG, the group built a catalog of two EPS–Lightning Strikes [2016] and Reaching for the Moon [2016]–and the 2017 full-length Tender Souls. Recharged as SONS OF SILVER in 2019, they served up the singles “Never Enough” and “Down.”
