Red Bull Studios band profile: Breathe In The Silence

By Tom Aylott

Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll be taking a look at some of the bands flying high in the annual Red Bull Studios Download Festival

Breathe In The Silence were #1 in the chart at the end of last night – and we sent a few questions over to Conor Evans from the band to introduce you, dear reader, to the band.

What is the history of Breathe In The Silence in as few words as possible?

We are a group of five friends from the valleys of South Wales, formed back in August 2012. We share the same passion for music and hope the five of us can achieve the same dream of touring the world together!

What made you want to get involved with the Red Bull Studios Download Festival opportunity? How did you find out about it?

It’s been a dream of ours as individuals and as a band for years to get the chance to play at the incredible Download Festival, no matter what stage it’s on and what a great opportunity this is for unsigned bands like ourselves. We found out about the opportunity from our good friends in Falling With Style, who succeeded on winning a spot at the festival.

Why did you pick the song that you picked to enter?

The music video we picked is our recently released single off of our self-titled E.P. The reason we picked this song is because we think it shows how versatile we are as musicians, including clean and screaming vocals, breakdown sections, clean guitar sections and heavy riffs all in one song. We feel this song can reach out to a wide range of audiences.

You’re at #1 right now… what are you going to do to keep people voting and keep you in the top 100?

We are extremely overwhelmed with the support we are receiving from our family, friends and fans, we feel very blessed. We continue to thank everyone who is supporting us and we have a few things to release for everyone as a thank you, but we don’t want to say too much because we want to surprise everyone with what we have to give back as a big thank you.

Playing Download Festival is a fantastic opportunity for any band – if you get there, what would you do to make the most of it and what else have you got coming up as a band that you can tell people about?

If we made it to the festival, I think first of all we would take a couple of seconds to let it all sink in, ha! But on a serious note, we would make sure that we deliver the best performance we possibly can! We won’t just play music, we will play a show! As for the plans for us at Breathe In The Silence, we are planning on touring most of England and Wales during the summer. We have our Debut E.P pre-release show on the 12th of April @ Hobo’s, Bridgend, South Wales. The E.P will be released on the 14th of April, available for purchase on all online music stores, such as iTunes, Amazon, Zune etc!

So look out for Breathe In The Silence this year, we hope to leave a good name for ourselves across the UK.

Check out the band’s video below, and keep voting for them if you like them!
