I have been hearing a buzz about Screaming For Silence for a bit now. Lots of good comments and people raving about this band. Well, we caught up with vocalist Zeb Christensen and found out all about Screaming For Silence. I have to say this band has made quite the impression on me. Really hoping to hear more from these guys as they fight the fight of Rock N’ Roll. Here’s something from their press kit and then we’ll get to the interview.
Since October 2012, Screaming For Silence has been hitting the road hard touring the country non-stop. Hooking up with bands while on tour such as 12 Stones, Prospect Hill, 3 Years Hollow, Landsdowne, SuperBob, Parabelle, Daybreak Embrace, and Eye Empire. In late November *S4S* linked up with Another Lost Year to support their headlining tour. After an amazing run, the band decided to hit the new year strong, together! The Brohemian Rhapsotour kicked off first thing 2013. At the end of February that co-headlining tour ended and right away Screaming For Silence hit the road again. March first started the Screaming For A Memory Tour w/ A Memory Down, and is hitting cities across the south/southeast as well as the great lakes area and northeast now.
Screaming For Silence (*S4S*) was officially formed in the fall of 2005 in Omaha, NE, and has been hitting the midwest music scene hard ever since. *S4S*’s “sound” has allowed them to play with a wide variety of national acts including Smile Empty Soul, Saliva, Drowning Pool, Trapt, Adema, 10 Years, Taproot, Powerman 5000, Hed PE, Hurt, Theory of a Deadman, Saving Abel and many more. In October of 2008, Screaming For Silence played the main stage at the Rock The Ink Festival in Providence, Rhode Island, which included bands Godsmack, Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, Sevendust, Taproot, Saliva, Drowning Pool and more. In late 2009, *S4S* recorded a 5 song EP at Sound Farm Studios in Jamaica, IA with producer/professional engineer, Matt Sepanic (Slipknot, Dirty Little Rabbits, Murderdolls) while continuing to play shows around the midwest. In the spring of 2011, *S4S* entered Infinite Studios in Omaha with Justin McCain (Emphatic) to record their newest single “Separate”. The track was quickly picked up by local radio station 89.7 The River and began getting play in regular rotation. Soon after, fueled by the success of “Separate”, *S4S* performed on the mainstage for Rockfest in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Alongside bands My Darkest Days, Escape The Fate, 10 Years, Hollywood Undead, Seether and Stone Sour, *S4S* gained countless new fans in front of a SOLD OUT crowd. Screaming For Silence intends on finishing the recording of their new album by Fall 2013.
Screaming For Silence’s sound is influenced by a genre combination of Hard Rock and Metal in conjunction with Nu-Metal and Alternative tendencies, resulting in a very unique and distinctive sound related to *S4S* only. Each performance displays an intense and dynamic stage presence while the music itself exhibits intricate instrumentation and powerful lyrics and vocals. The boys of Screaming For Silence continue to evolve as a band, musicians and performers with every show and each opportunity that comes their way.
Screaming For Silence has always been successful behind the merchandise table as well, selling hundreds of their 9 different t-shirt designs and nearly 1000 demo CDs in a matter of months. *S4S* has become one of the most well-known acts in the area, consistently drawing 300-400 people to each and every live Omaha show. Screaming For Silence continues to develop close relationships with many successful bands and Production Companies and has been asked to perform with a number of national acts touring through the area. Screaming For Silence has also been nominated for “Best Hard Rock Act in Omaha” by the Omaha Entertainment Awards (OEA) in 2009 and 2012.
