Track Premiere: Band of Bastards – ‘Division’

Austin is a hotbed for new music and hardcore punks Band of Bastards are in on the action. The band—which features members of …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, Sparta, Markov and a decade’s worth of other bands—delivers a release of built-up frustration caused by the pandemic and the political turmoil of the last year.

“Division,” the band’s new song and video, is cut from a traditional hardcore punk cloth. It’s short and sweet, executed with the precision that one would expect from scene veterans like the ones in Band of Bastards.

“The divide these days is real and everybody feels it,” says singer Andrew Leeper. “Don’t know how it gets better but turning off the TV sure as shit couldn’t hurt.” [continue reading article here]

Brooklyn Vegan (USA): "Swiss-German duo BOY prep first LP in 6 years — listen to “Fit Back In...”  [link]

ANNOUNCEMENT: May 24, 2021

SilverDoor Music has partnered with German-based record label Grönland Records, to distribute and represent new music from the critically acclaimed pop-duo BOY in North America. 

Swiss-German duo BOY return with their first new music since 2015’s We Were Here. ‘FIT BACK IN’ showcases Valeska Steiner’s enviably charming vocals riding Sonja Glass’ delicately arranged composition, the song’s like running into an old friend you’ve not seen for ages and suddenly remembering just how much you’ve missed them.

The ladies of BOY captured the hearts of North American fans in 2013, when they made their stateside live debut with sold-out tour dates, including a successful run at SXSW, where they came out a favorite among festival attendees and landed on numerous “Best Of” lists. Over their time here, they received praise from The New York Times, NPR Music, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Glamour, Nylon and more. They also made huge fans at influential radio stations like Sirius Spectrum, KBCO/Denver, KCMP/Minneapolis, WRLT/Nashville, WXPN/Philadelphia, WXRT/Chicago and KCRW/Los Angeles with their infectiously catchy single “Little Numbers” from debut album Mutual Friends, the video for which boasts more than 21 million YouTube views.

The new single, "Fit Back In", is out May 28 and available on all music platforms.
