Silent Season
It’s no secret that the world of rock music has gone through some big changes, and Boston, being one of the greatest hubs of hard rock & metal, was hit as hard as any. SILENT SEASON came together during this time, selecting a name that reflects the end of favorite venues, radio stations and record stores. “We selected a band name which has depth to it, an emotional play.” says drummer Dave Pappalardo. “There is not exactly a wildfire of new music happening right now, and as musicians we have to stay positive. Silent Season is starting a movement – holding the torch for bands which influenced us, with a sound uniquely ours.”

Citing influences ranging from Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace to Metallica and The Beatles, SILENT SEASON incubated for a year with lead singer & lyricist Jeremy Rae and drummer Dave Pappalardo writing and rehearsing to define the band before coalescing with guitarists Brendan Sheehan and Anthony Puliafico Jr.
The band has worked with producers Alex “The Greek” Hatziyannis at Old Folks Studios, Brad Young who has platinum LFO albums to his credit, and former Creed bassist and Dark New Day singer Brett Hestla. Twelve tracks were recorded for SILENT SEASON’s debut album, Breaking Me Down, which came out in the summer of 2012. The album was mastered at M-Works Studios in Cambridge, MA by Grammy-nominated producer Jonathan Wyner, whose credits include Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie and Aerosmith.

After a great national response and quickly making a name for themselves, SILENT SEASON decided it was time to record their new music since their sound has evolved. The band took the end of 2013 to hit the studio and start working on every idea they had. With 2014 as the game changer, they are making a point to play nationally and put out some of the best music this band has ever done.

Introducing SILENT SEASON - a band whose emotional melodic rock, forthright message and unrelenting determination is anything but quiet.
Take Us Alive - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Take Us Alive
Take Us Alive is a high energy, versatile, rock band based out of Boston, MA. Their first, self entitled EP, "Take Us Alive", is a lyrics driven journey of emotions. From the high energy rock and roll of "All Night" to the deep feelings of "Median", this EP is a solid first step for the band and their music career. Each member of the band brings their diversity and cultural background to the group which continues to capture new fans and make lasting impressions on those who hear their music.

Resonate - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Sometimes, things just click. When musicality, intention, and disposition align, the resulting sonic powerhouse can be an entity larger than the sum of its parts. And, sometimes, it happens just that quickly. Click.

That is exactly what happened in the fall of 2016, when Massachusetts’ Resonate first plugged in. Combining an eclectic array of influences, the band quickly discovered a sound that was all its own. Not quite Metal, not quite Hard Rock, it is a compelling mix of incendiary guitars, thunderous drums, and melodies that dig themselves into your subconscious — and set up camp.

Together with producer Charlie Borruso at Woodshop Productions (Myles Kennedy, Godsmack, Gary Hoey), and Nick Dragon from M-Works Studios (Aerosmith, Cave In, Nirvana), Resonate immediately began work on their first single/b-side. Set for release this spring, “Open Your Eyes,” will be supported heavily, as the band finalizes plans to bring their electric and high energy live show on the road. Be on the lookout, as Resonate is sure to quickly be on the rise!
