Fresh on the heels of their ferocious new EP, “Don’t Hold Your Breath,” Pittsburgh’s rising hardcore/metal band 156/SILENCE have unveiled a new, unreleased single, “A Past Embrace,” from SharpTone Records.

Commenting on the new track, guitarist Jimmy Howell states:
“‘When we wrote the beginning riff to ‘A Past Embrace’ we knew immediately that it was going to be a different type of song for us. It really showcases all of the different aspects of our sound while also being a cohesive, weird track.”
Delving into the song’s lyrical meaning, vocalist Jack Murray adds: 

Everything expires. Things that once brought us feelings of grandeur and strength won’t always hold that power they once did. ‘This isn’t what I always loved. This isn’t fun. This is a past embrace.‘”

With no signs of slowing heading into their summer tour with THE ACACIA STRAINMALEVOLENCE and I AM156/SILENCE are on a warpath of musical devastation and are plotting their biggest year to date.


156/SILENCE’s latest EP, “Don’t Hold Your Breath,” is available now from SharpTone Records. Produced by Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos), mastered by Will Putney (Every Time I Die, The Ghost Inside, Knocked Loose), the record features four powerful tracks, including the single “The Wrong Sense,” with a thematic ode to inescapable chaos and a prime study in calculated foresight.
