Fill The Silence / Press

“Fill The Silence is a dirty garage rock band with a raw sound that is to die for. Their sound is a combination of the brilliance of Jack White with the sheer grit of Guns n Roses. The guitar work is chunky and features a lot of tasty riffs ranging from blues rock to folk to punk to grunge, all very well done. The variation of styles provides for some interesting combinations and songs... The bass work is very solid and really drives the band along on songs like The Cure. The drum work is typical rock stuff but it really shines on riff driven songs like Dirty Girl where the drums pulsate and vibrate pushing their way all throughout the music. The vocals are rather soothing, yet with a rough side. The singer obviously has great range and a wonderful voice, yet at the edge there is a ragged side, and that is very rock and roll. In conclusion, Fill The Silence is a cool band that plays rock and roll the way it was meant to be played, loud, powerful, and fun. So go check them out!”

“... The genre of hard rock these days has become all too similar between the bands that call to this type of music, FTS did a decent job of keeping their songs something different and vibrant, rather than washed up copies of Nickelback songs. Throughout their set, FTS showed revealed many different faces of their music. Although hard rock is an easy way to pigeonhole the band, they really pushed the boundaries of the genre, shedding light of bands like Hinder, Foo Fighters, Breaking Benjamin, and even older bands like Aerosmith. FTS seemed to do best when they stuck to their hard rock roots. The band branched out a few times, one time to a more soft rock ballad ... Another ... led FTS to a slow jam love song ... and really allowed vocalist Nate Brown to shine. Overall, the bands' performance would make any hard rocker proud. Truly lacking nothing, FTS is a powerful notch in the world of hard rock ... after touring a year and a half off of a single, “Push”, which not many bands can”

“I first had Fill The Silence play at my venue in May of 2011. We had Bang Tango headlining, and I was told that FTS was opening at the last minute, after the posters had already been printed. I hadn't ever heard of them, and we already had a local opener scheduled, so we just let the existing posters fly without FTS on them. I didn't figure anyone would even notice the first act, between the popular local band, and the always awesome Bang Tango. Boy, was I wrong. They blew our socks off! For the next 3 to 4 weeks, I constantly had people asking me who the "boys" were that opened for Bang Tango, they wanted me to bring them back ASAP, alone if possible! And I have, 5 times now, and am looking forward to the 6th in a couple months. These guys are one of the hottest acts on the west coast. In song quality, raw talent, and professionalism, you really just can't top what they bring to the stage. Never again will FTS fail to make one of my posters.”

“Fill the Silence invaded the Black Hills of South Dakota last year with 300,000 bikers for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Their sound was a perfect sound track to a week full of hot days, hot bikes and hotter biker babes. They played downtown Main Street Deadwood every night of the week while splitting their days promoting throughout the area and playing another set of shows at Desperado Junction. I was impressed not only with their sound but the professionalism with which all of these young men worked with. Shows and sound were far from perfect on several occasions and these guys not only made it work but did it with a smile on their faces. From a hail storm after sound check to jail time on the road these boys persevered and embodied a true essence of Rock n Roll music we haven't seen for a long time. Overall we could not be more pleased with our experience with Fill the Silence and already look forward to working with them again this year!!”

“Dennis Rubenstein, an agent who managed Ike and Tina Turner and booked bands like Fleetwood Mac, The Doors and Aerosmith, stepped out of retirement to become an agent for rock band Fill the Silence....In the next few months, Rubenstein will help the band find a producer and record deal for their upcoming album.... Their single hit, “Push,” (has) gained radio airplay across the nation...”

“One local band is really turning up the volume on Rock and Roll. Fill the Silence is a band made up of five friends from Eastern Washington who are earning fans from around the country with their unique sound.”

"This is the most compassionate, dedicated and talented group I have ever laid eyes on. They put everything they are into their songs... fully engaged. No matter how large or small the venue, they are playing for the people and their love of music. They aren't just performing, they are sleeping, eating, breathing music to share with their fans! Their amazing energy lights up every place they play, and will light up the world more every day that they continue. "

“listened to "push", love your sound...take care and best of luck, Robert”

“Formed in October of 2009 by experienced musicians, Fill the Silence is on a blazing upward path. Amazing original songs and reinterpretations of modern classics have captured the imagination of the local music scene making them the hottest band in the area.”
