Silence Kit

Alternative Grunge Rock

About

Silence Kit entered the studio with Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung, Pack AD) at Rain City Recorders in East Vancouver in October 2017. Here, the band recorded five tracks over just three days. The result of this work is Kitty Kitty, an explosive, energetic five track EP mastered by Noah Mintz (Broken Social Scene, The Constantines, Hey Rosetta!).

Catchy hooks, screams and noise amidst melodic guitar and raw power champion their ethos. Their sound has been characterized as everything from alt-rock to post punk, a staple made readily apparent by their intimate and explosive live performances that always deliver on energy and passion.

Forming in January of 2016, Silence Kit cemented their sound with an explosive debut performance at The Park Theatre, one of Winnipeg's largest indie venues. The group hasn't slowed down since.

On April 21st, 2017, Silence Kit released their debut EP, Started as a Whisper, to a sold out crowd before leaving for a tour of western Canada. Their EP debuted at number five on CKUW radio charts and sat at number one for over a month. After a successful tour, Silence Kit played the stages of Pride Winnipeg, Summer in the City, Canada Day and the Sherbrook Street Festival before hunkering down in the fall to begin the recording Kitty Kitty EP.

The band then re-emerged with an explosive performance on the Village Idiot’s Live at the Roslyn show at the end of December. Silence Kit kept rolling into a sold-out Festival du Voyageur, performing in the electric Sugar Shack tent in February 2018.

Silence Kit spent the summer of 2018 preparing for their next release and tour in addition to playing Canada Day at the Forks and at the inaugural Toba Rock Fest in August 2018.

On October 5 Silence Kit released Kitty Kitty and celebrate with show at the Good Will Social Club. The band then headed directly out on a tour of Ontario and Quebec, making their first stop in Thunder Bay on the 6th. This tour included stops at Barfly in Montreal on October 13th and the legendary Bovine Sex Club on October 11th.
