Pittsburgh hardcore metal outfit 156/Silence has officially joined the roster of revered independent label Innerstrength Records. With the label behind them, the critically acclaimed band will release an eagerly awaited new album, titled Undercover Scumbag, on September 14th.
“We’re beyond excited to be joining the family over at Innerstrength Records. After playing and meeting bands on the label for years we feel this is a huge step forward for the band. We believe Undercover Scumbag is our most cohesive and experimental work to date and with their help, we can bring the album to as many people as possible.” – 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.
