twelve gauge valentine have recorded 3 new songs during a tour stop in nashville! check out the new tracks on the band's my space page.

in other 12gv news, the band is featured on a new dvd relesed by full lock media. it's called "this ain't your mom's hardcore vol. 1." it will feature live footage of twelve gauge valentine, underoath, norma jean, the chariot, haste the day, and a ton more. look for it in the hot topic near you, or buy it from full lock media directly.

thanks goes out to kapil at full lock media - he is filming a music video for twelve gauge valentine tonight in georgia! rad!

in case we forgot to mention it, sound vs silence would like to point out the fact that we have some fine-tuned "industry ears"...our buddy joel pack (featured on our svss 2004 sampler) and his band broke have signed with maverick records. they've had the chance to tour with the used a few times this year, and they started recording the major-label debut yesterday! the record is being recorded at unknown studios owned by branden steinekert of the used. mr. steinekert will be producing it as well...we'd like to wish jp and the boys some luck and plenty of good times...somehow i doubt this record will be packaged in duct tape.


happy thanksgiving!!

we here at sound vs silence are thankful for a number of things this year...here is a brief list:
-yayyy snow!!
-our bands: twelve gauge valentine, her candane, art of kanly , danny vesper (quick and dead), still breaking hearts, the hotness, the hi fi massacre, and anyone else that's part of the family - did we really forget you? nahhh...it's just late and i've had one too many snow plow stouts...
smartpunk has added "exclamationaire" by twelve gauge valentine to their store - go here and start shopping! if you already have this record in your collection, be sure to pick one up for every one of your siblings, cousins, neighbors, and friends. you owe it to them...and we'd love you for it.
while you're on the smartpunk page, be sure to pick up her candane's "could be nothing to some " disc there as well.

twelve gauge valentine will continue to tour until the middle of december - unfortunately, the other bands that were to be on these shows have dropped off. no problem for you though, just go check out one of the best shows you'll see this year! remember, these guys are moving quick - you may not get a chance to see them in such an intimate setting again!

in other news, we have sent a check to our buddy danny vesper, who plans to release a quick and dead cdep early next year. he is finalizing two new tracks that he recorded at home last weekend, and will be sending the ep off for mastering very soon...we're using the same guy that mastered the interpol "antics" cd. the tracks will be taken from various sessions that mr. vesper has been recording throughout 2004 and 2005. as soon as we know the track listing and more info, we'll be happy to let you know. prepare yourself, this disc will be amazing!
