From the vaults...
Recorded back in 2009 during one of Silver's earliest recording sessions.
Silver have always been big Bowie fans, and this was their take on a classic track.
It was never intentionally destined for any kind of release, but it felt right that now was the time for it to be heard.
Enjoy, and God bless you David Bowie.
Until next time...
After taking a short break, we're happy to report that Silver are now back and operational.
Writing for the new album is starting to take shape. Simon and Ciaron are both working on ideas and hope to be in a position to start demoing things really soon.
"The writing process is a strange one. Sometimes things come together really quickly, other times it can take a while longer. We're still in the early stages of everything at the moment so things can go a number of different ways.
That said though, I'm really fired up about new material for the next album. Ideally I'd like to retain the essence of the songs from XLVII but also try new some things that we've not tried before.
We'll see how things develop, it's an exciting time right now."
In the meantime though we're happy to be able to bring you a new track from the boys, their take on the theme from Casino Royale.
"We're both huge James Bond fans so, when we were thinking about recording covers for a bit of fun, a Bond theme was a no-brainer! We indulged ourselves with this for sure!"
Until next time...
Silver are pleased to announce their inclusion in this month's Vive Le Rock magazine.

Vive Le Rock is the UK's premiere punk / rock / new wave / alternative music magazine. Do yourselves a favour and check it out, we're certainly happy to be a part of it.
We've been pretty busy with promotion since the album launch last year but that's not stopped us from getting into the studio and having some fun recording some of our favourite tunes, by some of our favourite artists. The results will be appearing on our Soundcloud page soon.
In other news, we're in the early stages of putting a live band together. More details when we get them.

What's been going on in Camp Silver we hear you ask?
In addition to the digital release of the single, Dear Prudence, Silver have been hard at work putting the finishing touches to their debut album. No news on a release date yet but it's slated for "the second part of this year".
After many, many requests, we're very pleased to announce that limited edition CD copies of the single will be available to purchase shortly. Artwork is being finalised as we speak and production will commence soon.
And finally, whilst in the studio Silver took time out to produce a little performance video for your viewing pleasure. Filmed and recorded completely live in the studio, Simon and Ciaron performed a stripped down, not quite acoustic, acoustic version of Dear Prudence.
Until next time, thank you for your support and remember to spread the word to those you hold dear...
Ciaron: Simon and I had been friends for quite a few years but we'd never really done much together in the way of musical collaborations.
Simon: I was writing and recording demos, one of which I sent to Ciaron.
C: I got wind of some songs that he was working on, and, as I was at a loose end at the time, I suggested that I have a go at adding 'me' to the tracks! What I actually ended up doing was ripping the tracks apart, completely de-constructing them, then re-building them from the ground up. I figured either he'd hate what I'd done, which was OK coz I'd enjoyed working on the tracks anyway, or he'd like it. Luckily for him he LOVED it!
S: We've never looked back from there!
S: For me, Marc Bolan, David Bowie, Adam Ant, Marco Pirroni, John Barry & Ennio Morricone.
C: I get influenced by all sorts of things all the time! But formatively speaking, in musical terms at least, I guess the key influences would have been the Pistols, Johnny Thunders / New York Dolls, The Ramones, 50's rock 'n' roll, The Stray Cats, Sinatra, Bow Wow Wow, The Ants, The Cult, Killing Joke... stuff like that. I'm currently grooving on The Jim Jones Revue, I really love their 'Chuck Berry on speed' take on rock 'n' roll.
C: I don't really recall much about how this came about to be honest! What I do recall is thinking 'whatever we do, we've gotta use the McCartney bassline coz it's so great'!
S: I liked the song, especially the Banshees version, but I went back to the original by The Beatles. I love the McCartney bass line. I wanted to capture that with Ciaron's guitar style over the top.
C: The references were obviously The Beatles and The Banshees version, but again, after de-constructing and re-building the song I think we've managed to put our own stamp on the song.
S: To continue what we are doing! I want to get another single out, and to take it all out on the road.
C: It's a really busy period right now. Apart from doing the promo stuff for Dear Prudence, we're writing new tracks and putting the final polish on others for the album which will be out later this year. There'll probably be another single out before that though.
S: All of our demos and song-writing ideas, I'd be lost without those. Oh and a coat, it may be cold outside - I don't do cold!!
C: Assuming that everyone had got out of the building OK, and Si's bagged the demos, then I think it would have to be my Les Paul Junior and my Marshall. But that's two things...
Silver are proud to announce the release of their debut single, Dear Prudence.
Available from iTunes, Amazon, and all good online retailers...
