'Gently weaving intricately constructed tales, this quartet from Oxford produce larger-than-life cinematic soundscapes, rolling from trance-like distortion to superbly focused piano and electric guitar hooks' Rock Sound A Silent Film are a four-piece band from Oxford, England. During the past year they have had a number one download single in Portugal (beating Coldplay, Leona Lewis and The Script to the top spot) with the album following suit. In the US their first single, 'You Will Leave a Mark,' was chosen to be the Itunes 'Discovery Download' and over 100,000 copies were downloaded in the first two weeks of June alone. It is still enjoying substantial radio success having topped the 'most requested chart' at KROQ and at Sirius Alt Nation, with many other stations now A-listing the track. Their debut album, 'The City That Sleeps', is due to be re-released in the UK on October 4th. The band were handpicked by BBC Introducing to play Glastonbury, and they have recently played at Optimus Alive (supporting Mettalica and The Prodigy) and Mares Vivas (supporting Placebo). In September 2010 they will play their first US shows supporting the Smashing Pumpkins in Kansas, Fritz and the Tantrums in Philadelphia and playing a headline show in Boston. 'The band has consistently shone in the live arena, its widescreen musical vision outgrowing the stage' The Fly 'A show of genre-fusing excellence' Tour Times
