Nathan Walter, front man for The Space Coast electro rock trio Quiet Science, describes the band’s second full length album as “one long fight song.” The 2011 album titled Dark Words On Dark Wings is a collection of stories about characters facing the darkest hours of their lives and how in these tremendously difficult times, the characters choose to respond. “In a world where hurt is easy to come by and despair is not always addressed, we want to plant a seed of hope and a challenge for all of us to help mend the broken.” For Dark Words on Dark Wings, the band enlisted Jeremy SH Griffith (Underoath, Sunbears, Norma Jean) to produce and engineer, Drew Lavyne (Foo Fighters, White Stripes, Moby) to master the album. The result is a sonic masterpiece that sounds big enough to fill arenas while maintaining the innovation to demand multiple listens. The keys and guitar take turns providing a sonic landscape for its counterpart to charge through the foreground, while intense drumming gives the music its adrenaline.
For two years Quiet Science has toured the country non-stop sharing the road with artists including Switchfoot, Showbread, Abandon Kansas, Sleeping At Last, Cool Hand Luke, Future of Forestry, and Remedy Drive. Quiet Science’s first full length album, [With/Without] gained the band much attention including several features in publications such as Relevant Magazine and received airplay on radio stations across North America. Quiet Science has been in demand at many festivals including Cornerstone, Ichthus, and Summer Side Show. The band moved over 3,000 copies of [With/Without] independently, while playing over 150 shows a year since it’s release in 2010.
Music from the album has been featured on E!’s Married to Rock. With influences ranging from U2, Radiohead, and Depeche Mode the band’s sound lands somewhere between Shiny Toy Guns and The Killers but with a sound that is all their own. With DWODW, Quiet Science hopes to create community, spark conversation and bring inspiration to all who choose to listen. Read more on Last.fm.
