Hard. Hard feelings. Hard work. Hard rock. SCREAMING FOR SILENCE powers through the lows with unapologetic roars, punishing percussion, sweaty bass lines and euphoric guitar riffs in their debut EP featuring the nu-metal – rock fused anthem “Separate” and the many-layered standout “Helpless.” Beaten but not down, SCREAMING FOR SILENCE commands attention in the studio and especially live on-stage.

Cut from the same vain of acts like Smile Empty Soul, Papa Roach, Drowning Pool, Trapt and Powerman 5000, SCREAMING FOR SILENCE has collaborated with some of the Midwest’s most notorious rock producers, including Justin McCain (Emphatic) and producer/sound engineer Matt Sepanic (Slipknot, Dirty Little Rabbits, Murderdolls). At its core, the SCREAMING FOR SILENCE sound is intricate with ravaged vocals and cutting lyrics. The guys are currently working on their 2014 debut album in Hollywood, CA with producer Erik Ron (We Came As Romans, Motionless In White), incorporating recording/writing in to their grueling tour schedule.

That same dynamic and power fueled energy is only equaled live in concert. In a comparably short time, SCREAMING FOR SILENCE has shared the stage with diverse bands such 12 Stones, Taproot, Prospect Hill, Eye Empire and Another Lost Year. Their resume doesn’t end there – SCREAMING FOR SILENCE has primed the stage for BUSH, Stone Sour, Seether, Candelbox, and played on the 2008 Rock the Ink Festival (Providence, RI) with Godsmack, Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, Sevendust and more.

Bassist, composer, vagabond, CJ Boyd uses low-end loops and voices in order to try and stop time. On perpetual tour since March 2008, movement and stasis are both at the center of his music. Though solo performance takes up the bulk of his time and effort, he also plays in the bands Desert Center, Kurva Choir, Rhonya, and Move. His non-stop travels between North America and Europe have been propelled by vans, cars, trains, buses, planes, and boats, but most of all a commitment to ceaseless discovery and re-invention. His oceanic sounds provide a home for the homeless and journeys to the homebound.
