Silent Lions tour in support of EP (2014)

Conceived in Toledo, OH with a home base in sister city Detroit, Silent Lions are the sinister twosome of heavy-soul. Dean Tartaglia simultaneously plays affected octave bass, sampled synths, and manipulated atmospheric vocals, all while drummer Matt Klein grooves and thrashes beside him, often providing soulful singalong melodies and harmonies. The duo’s live shows sound as thick and creamy as they do on record. Their music has been tagged as “heavy soul,” “chill punk” and “Hall and Oates backed by Rage Against The Machine.”
Silent Lions’ sophomore six-song EP, The Compartments, is a deeper exploration into genre manipulation. From hip-hop to stoner rock, Silent Lions create moments of lo-fi chaos out of hi-fi clarity. With their unofficial third member Zach Shipps (Electric Six) producing, The Compartments takes enough risks to turn your head, but never strays from SiLi’s visceral, trademark, super sub bass and drum sound.
The band will hit the road this spring in support of The Compartments EP, which was released on January 14 on vinyl, digital and CD formats through the band’s own label, Nah Collective.
