“Eddie Shiffler, of Ocean City, is known on the East Coast as a talented rock singer, songwriter and performer. But he has bigger dreams. So Shiffler took part in the nationwide search to find a new lead singer for the San Diego-based, hard-rock band Stone Temple Pilots, which featured the now-decreased lead vocalist Scott Weiland. Chester Bennington filled in as Weiland’s temporary replacement, but now the band is looking for a new singer. Shiffler, 34, said he’s confident that the past 18 years he spent as a musician have prepared him to take over the frontman duties for one of the most commercially successful bands of the 1990s. A 1999 graduate of Ocean City High School in, Shiffler has produced numerous albums of blues, folk and rock as a solo artist. He currently plays with two different bands — Dogz of Zeus, based in New York City, and Green Language, a southern New Jersey band. He also is the general manager of the Cherry Hill School of Rock in Camden County.”

“...Shiffler formed the band after returning to the area from New York City, where he performed for the past several years. The band’s style is inspired by British invasion bands of the 1960s, grunge bands of the 1990s and reggae music. Shiffler’s lyrics allude to the Bible and mythology. In conversation, Shiffler references the myth of Osiris and the true origins of Cinderella. “I’ve found that I’m really inspired by the fusion of ancient mythology and modern society,” he says. “I think there’s a hidden connection between ancient myths and their subconscious influences on modern society. ‘Green Language’ implies the hidden message that’s found within nature and art.” Fans with quick feet can catch the band as they perform at Ocean City’s Doo Dah Parade noon Saturday. Green Language will perform on a float, as it rides down Asbury Avenue and onto the Boardwalk. The band’s mascot, “The Green Man,” will accompany them, passing out Cds and Download cards.”

"Green Language is a band based out of Ocean City, NJ with quite the eclectic sound. Citing influences like The Black Keys, Sublime, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones, their songs contain a little something for everyone. On Saturday, September 20th, they perform the USS New Jersey Battleship in Camden, performing alongside American Hitmen from the show, America’s Got Talent. Rock On Philly got the chance to talk with the band about their upcoming show and what’s next!"
