Toronto, ON - Windsor rockers The Silence Factory are excited to announce the release of the video for their latest single 'High' with an Exclusive Premiere today on Live in Limbo. The Silence Factory will also be touring in support of their new music, and have select tour dates in February and March with a full Cross-Canada Tour throughout April and May, to be announced soon. See below for the latest tour listings.
The Silence Factory’s new track ‘High’ was produced by Juno award winning and Grammy nominated producer Gavin Brown (3 Days Grace, Billy Talent) and is the second single from a new EP that will be released later this year. The song is currently going for adds at Canadian Rock Radio and is already getting spins 97.7 Hits FM, FM 96, The Fox 105.3, Rock 106.7, The Wolf 104.9 and more! The first single from their upcoming EP release, a cover of Harvey Danger’s ‘Flagpole Sitta’, gained considerable spins at radio last year, charting at #51 on the Canadian active rock charts.
The video for ‘High’ was directed by Jendo Shabo from Moonjump Productions and in keeping with the lyrics of the song, the video has a dark, moody vibe.
“The story is a bit dark, but basically it’s about a guy who feels guilty about the death of his girlfriend – even though it’s absolutely not his fault," says frontman Nathan McNevin. “The video tries to capture that feeling that people have when bad stuff happens and they think they are to blame. But, in the end, the idea is that the girl comes back and tries to pull the guy into the road to get hit by a car and he realizes it at the last minute and pulls away. So, even though it’s dark it ends on a positive note. The guy finally realizes it’s not his fault so he can just be sad about the loss, but not blame himself.”
The Silence Factory formed in 2015 (as Nathan McNevin and The Silence Factory) and have been playing shows across Canada ever since.The band spent a great deal of time on the road in 2016, playing over 50 shows, all across the country. And they plan to spend 2017 doing the same thing. They recently opened up for USS at St. Andrew’s Hall in Detroit and will be announcing a Cross-Canada Tour soon.
The Silence Factory's debut CD, Collection of Thoughts, was released in February 2016 launching their first commercial radio single 'Land'. In June 2016, the band took first place in 97.7 HTZ FM's Rocksearch competition which has launched the careers of many notable acts including Finger Eleven, The Trews, and The Glorious Sons.
