The Silos Announce SXSW Shows and New Studio Album

March 10, 2011

NEW YORK, March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The Silos (www.thesilos.net) announce the release of their highly anticipated studio album tilted Florizona, due out April 20th. “This is the best Silos album to date! We really blew this one out! Having taken two years in the making, this album is lovingly crafted with a high dose of sonic inspiration. We are excited to play the new songs at SXSW and see the audience’s reaction,” says Walter Salas-Humara, song writer and front-man of the legendary indie rock/alt-country band.

About The Silos

The Silos buzz with rock energy reminiscent of the proto-punk Lower East Side legends The Velvet Underground, punched up with pop melodies that resuscitates a sound that never went out of style. The songs play out like minimalist short stories framed by the spacious, guitar-heavy arrangements that add depth and transcendence, but can switch to ferocious, hook-laden rock to part the clouds and land back on terra firma. The Silos were named “Best New American Band” by Rolling Stone magazine and made their national television appearance on the David Letterman Show. After numerous critically acclaimed albums and thousands of days on the road, it is heartening to know that the band continues to make brilliance look easy.

    "The band's austere style inflects the astringent twang of The Velvet
     Underground with the drone of R.E.M. and adds countryish echoes that
     recall Gram Parsons."
    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    "Powerful earthy pop that sounds like the result of Nirvana riding on
     R.E.M's tour bus."
    Buzz McClain The Washington Post
