A Silent Film unveil new album, tour

This album just came out and it's already a strong contender for my year-end top 10 list! Read more from the press release below...

A Silent Film have released their new self-titled, full-length studio album. Produced by the band's Robert Stevenson and Spencer Walker, alongside Matthew Wilcox (Foster the People), the 11-track CD was recorded in the band's hometown of Oxford, UK.
The U.S. tour is underway now. A confirmed list of remaining shows is listed below with tickets for all dates on sale and available at:
Fans can listen to the debut single "Lightning Strike" online. 

On the follow up to critically acclaimed LP Sand & Snow, the band aspired to write and record a collection of songs that had their own identity and didn't drift off to follow current trends.
The eponymous album was recorded in the band's hometown over a five-week period following the Secret Rooms tour. The duo invited friends from across the UK and US who had played with them on tour to help with the recording, including Sam Williams (Supergrass, The Go! Team, The Weeks), who recorded A Silent Film's debut album The City That Sleeps. 

Formed in Oxford, UK, the band self-produced their last LP Sand & Snow, inspired by an impulsive tryst with Americana, yielding the hit singles "Harbour Lights", and "Danny, Dakota and the Wishing Well" to build on the success of 2010's anthemic debut single "You Will Leave A Mark".
Earlier this year, the band followed up Sand & Snow with the release of New Year EP and the sold out Secret Rooms tour - a series of unique and intimate 'in-the-round' performances across the US. Over the years, the band has toured with such acts as OneRepublic, Civil Twilight, Smashing Pumpkins and Temper Trap as well as festival performances including Glastonbury and Firefly.
