Head on over to their MySpace page and you can check out the first official taste of The Silent Years' long delayed, but still forthcoming, third full length album "Spider Season". The band has put up the new track "The River" as of today as the first sampling of the new album. The song is yet another new direction for the band, almost acapella with harmonized backing vocals, claps, whistles and a near calypso feel.
Originally scheduled for release this spring, "Spider Season" has been left in limbo as the band worked to get out of their recording deal with SideCho Records. Once that was taken care of, the next hurdle was finding a new label to release the anticipated album. However, Josh Epstein announced onstage last month at the DIY Street Fair in Ferndale, that search appears to be over.
No official word on a release date or the label releasing it just yet, but it appears it will be sometime in early 2011.
