Silent Civilian Posts New Song, "Atonement," Online

SILENT CIVILIAN's new album, "Ghost Stories," is set for a May 18th release and the band has teamed up exclusively with Revolver Magazine to present the worldwide debut of the track “Atonement.” Check it out here.

Jonny Santos (vocals) describes the meaning behind the track, “The song ‘Atonement’ is basically about being cast away by someone you respect, love and hold in high regards. Lost loyalty, yet still holding on to what was once true. I was lyrically inspired by someone whom I loved and adored, but whom was too swayed by the next door neighbor’s lawn instead of watering their own. People need to think twice before making decisions they will regret for years to come. We play the song live and it has been met with nothing but praise. It’s a combination of tragedy and violence. It differs from the rest of the album in the sense of being more of melodic, yet shows how the band has grown adhering to no boundaries. This is atonement.”
