The Toledo, OH based Christian rockers SILVERSYDE released their brand new new Casting Shadows EP yesterday. SILVERSYDE share a little about the meaning behind release on their website, saying, “This album is dedicated to those who are hurting and broken and to those who have lost a loved one to sickness, tragedy or suicide. The anthem of change, hope and healing resides through every song as you are taken on a musical journey through darkness into light. “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it” John 1:5 NLT is the heartbeat of this EP. Get ready to rock with your windows down to this album.”
The album cover, their 2012 music video for the title track “Circus, Circus” off their debut release (to give you a taste of their music if you’re new to them), the band’s bio and the buy links for Casting Shadows can all be found below.
Silversyde was birthed from turmoil, chaos, and despair. Our lyrics tell a story of release from addiction to many harmful behaviors including drugs, alcohol, and an incessant desire to find acceptance in people and behaviors that sought to destroy us.
SILVERSYDE is a metaphor about finding hope in the worst of circumstances. Surrounded by the storm clouds, we each cried out for HELP and were abto find the silver lining in Hope, Eternity, Love and Purity. This symbolic metaphor for H.E.L.P. is the focus of our band and what our music is all about. We are the underdogs, the people who never quite fit in, and now through our genuine, raw, and emotionally gripping music we want to help other ‘outcasts’ and hurting souls find reconciliation.
Our calling is to show people a way through the stress and troubles of life that plague our everyday existence.
Our life experience and struggles are crucial in helping us relate to our fans/audience. Currently our focus is on suicide prevention and our own suicidal tendencies and near death experiences have given us the ability to relate to people and offer HELP to those who are in similar situations.
Our music, tells a story of a great emptiness inside that we have a longing to fill. No longer shall we be slaves to depression and addiction.
Our lyrics are real, our motives are pure and our hearts are set on reconciliation with the source of all purposeful, abundant Life.
