Silent have shared the video for their new single, “Empty Spaces”, off their recent album ‘Modern Hate’ out via Three One G.
The video was directed and edited by Mario Acosta with production by Pentacostal. The video was conceived by Sing and Acosta, and filmed in in Ensenada, Baja California.
Jung Sing shared this about “Empty Spaces”: “This song is a scream for help, and a call to question everything. It points out how fucked the world is, and how the people who are supposed to fix things are worthless. Less church, less government, more action.”. This has been one of the main themes throughout the album. The other ones are “all the racist, supremacist bullshit” that has come to the surface again in a new form, across the world. The band considered all of the mass shootings and killings that have happened across the US over the years. “Most of the lyrics focus on the disturbing flaws of people and religion, love and dreams”.
On this song Alex takes the leaf and the rest of the band keeps on marching to the beat of Rocío’s drumming. This song sound as urgent as the Cure did at the end of the 80’s.
We cannot wait to be able to see SILENT live again. They’re hands down without a doubt one of our favorite bands to see live and quite possibly the best Mexican band playing now.
