Silent Civilian To Release New Album In October

Silent Civilian, the band fronted by Spineshank vocalist Jonny Santos, will be releasing a brand new studio album this year entitled, "Ghost Stories." To help get fans ready for the release, the band has posted a new song on their official Myspace entitled, "The Last One Standing." You can check it out here.

Speaking on the song and the album, Santos states: "The Last One Standing’ is, to me, the best representation of what is to come from the next record. I feel it has all the elements of what Silent Civilian is, but also shows where the band is going. It has all the elements needed to be a great S.C. song, but also shows a maturity in the songwriting dept. Lyrically it is an anthem for individuality. Basically it’s a song against anyone who is being controlled by anything - a song that promotes free thinking and non-conformity.

"The record as a whole is very diverse in the sense that the whole band contributed to the writing process this time around, instead of it primarily being Chris and I, like on the last record. I feel that we have got through our growing pains, and the fans will hear that on ‘Ghost Stories’. This record has more of a raw, unpolished vibe to it. I feel it has a very ‘dangerous’ vibe to it, for lack of a better term. It seems like this band only does well under stress and pressure, or flying by the seat of our pants in the face of adversity, and I wanted to capture that feeling in the song writing this time around. It is a brutal record, and that's the bottom line. It will kick your face in repeatedly and that's what Silent Civilian is all about. We are looking forward to being back on tour and seeing our fans again this summer, and we can't wait to put this record out!!!"
