“”Undercover Scumbag” was one of the first songs we wrote for the album, and the one we’ve been playing the longest live. If you’ve seen us in the past 6 months you’ve heard this song. When the intro riff was played at practice for the first time in the Summer of 2017, the rest of the song just made sense. People seem to not only connect with the raw heaviness of this track, but also the meaning behind the song as well and we’re excited to finally release it. ” – 156/Silence
156/Silence was formed in 2015 by members of various local Pittsburgh bands. What began as a softer brand of post-hardcore has evolved into a hardcore influenced metalcore band. Following the release of a few EPs, 156/Silence is cranking things up with their upcoming album. Undercover Scumbag represents the culmination of everything that is 156/Silence and their heaviest, weirdest and most dynamic album to date.
The goal of 156/Silence is the same now as it was at their inception; to create unique music with other musicians who truly care and want to do it for the rest of their lives. The band is formed by musicians who were the driving forces of their previous bands, and that’s stayed true through every single lineup change. We just want to express ourselves and create something truly memorable and unique. In the current landscape of heavy music, it can be hard to stand out, but that’s precisely what we plan to do.
