Silhouette Era

There is a very specific feeling we get when meeting someone with potential, and Bay Area rockers The Silhouette Era have us covered with “Waste Me”, an energetic jam to set the tone. Subtle distortion quickly condenses to the heart-pumping, nearly gut-wrenching force whose source may just be along for the ride. It’s the attention we crave set to the dancing tempo of punk’s greatest spirit. Following their far too long ago 2015 record Beacons, this one is cut from their forthcoming self-titled EP and is available for pre-order here. Do not, I repeat, do not overlook them on the bill.
