The Silence Kit | A Philadelphia-based post-punk band
The Silence Kit is a Philadelphia-based post-punk band that plays dark indie rock. Inspired in equal parts by post punk, shoegaze, neo-psychedelia, and avant-garde, the band was started by singer/guitarist Patrick McCay, who was eventually joined by Darren O'Toole and Justin Dushkewich on drums and bass, James Gross on guitar and Bryan Streitfeld on synth. "Watershed" was released in 2014 on Azteca Records / Break Even Records, which reflected the band's wide palette of songwriting, mood and texture. Between 2015-17 The Silence Kit released a series of singles as well as a few covers recorded for tribute compilations released by The Blog That Celebrates Itself. The band's 5th LP "Fall Protection" was released on October 26, 2018 and blends all the different facets of The Silence Kit sound in still new and ever changing ways.
The album was an exclusive feature at Big Takeover, and has already been garnering great reviews including When The Sun Hits. Songs from the album have been played on WPRB, WZBC, WLFR, Xray.fm, Highwire Daze Radio, Strawberry Tongue Radio, byte.fm, novumfm.de in Germany, and other internet and college radio stations.
