THE SILVER TONGUE DEVILS are a 5 piece rock band made up of a diverse group of individuals from Hamilton and surrounding areas.
Formed in 2008 the members are now M. Deangelis (vocals), S. Chayka (drums), S. Gaunt (guitar), S. Hill (guitar) and B. Wade (bass & Back-up Vocals). There is a wide age range in the band which seems to be showcased in their sound. A mish-mash of hard rock, classic rock, modern rock and bits of syncopated grungey funk evolve into a pretty radio
friendly and fresh style of music that has a broad age range of
fans to boot. Even though you could say they are a fairly new band, the members have individually in previous bands shared the stage with some pretty well known acts such as I MOTHER EARTH, HEADSTONES, APRIL WINE, DAVID WILCOX. DREAM THEATRE to name a few. After writing and rehearsing for 2 years the band started playing live and entered the rock radio station Y108 BREAKOUT BAND CHALLENGE which took place in over a dozen clubs all over Ontario. In all over 100 bands competed for the $20,000 in cash and prizes. After winning the Regional qualification, then the quarter finals, the top 10 bands were put up on the Y108 website where the listeners voted for the top 5 to play the finals, THE STD's were in that top 5 and at the finals at The Corktown in Hamilton, Ont. They came out the champions. Their loyal and frenzied fans seemed to be the driving force they needed to kick it up a notch. Come recording time they then
began their Recording sessions at Cherry Beach Sound in Toronto, and finished the rest at Iguana Recording Studios in Toronto. Mastering was done at Wreckhouse Mastering in Toronto also. The result is the bands first 6 song EP named JUST RIDE.
