Silverstein has been a band since 2000 and signed onto Rise Records in 2014, and since then they’ve released their eighth studio album I Am Alive in Everything I Touch and just finished a co-headlining tour with Senses Fail. But vocalist Shane Told has taken on even more than that with his new solo project, River Oaks.
Shane had this to say about his new project:
“This project has been a long time in the making. For 15 years I have been the singer, a songwriter and occasional guitar player for Silverstein. I have loved every minute as a lead singer, but I wanted to do something on the side all by myself.”
“I wrote and played all the parts on these songs, vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, and even drums. I poured every ounce of my heart and soul into these songs. This 7″ EP is just the start. Where the project grows from here will be a forthcoming journey I am extremely excited about.”
River Oaks has released a self-titled 7″ EP that you can pick up here. If you want to check out the sound, you can watch the music video for “Let You Down” below. I’m jammin’ to it as I write; it’s pretty sweet.
