CILVER has released their all new music video for their hit single “I’m America” today exclusively via Loudwire.com. Directed by Patrick Kendall (Theory of a Deadman, Sevendust, Megadeth) this is the first official music video taken from their all new LP due out later this month. “‘I’m America’ is the anthem for unification,” says vocalist Uliana Preotu.
“It is an anthem for everyone and about everything that America is with the good and the bad. While the song is inspired from my personal story, it is the story of everyone who lives in and loves this country. It’s a song that sheds light about people’s journey to America, living in America, all the sacrifices everyone makes, and in the end just how great this country is. It’s a beautiful place, you can drink the water!”
The new music video comes on the heels of the band’s announcement of their participation as direct support for rock supergroup Sixx:AM, featuring Motley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx and former Guns N Roses guitarist DJ Ashba in May.

CILVER will release Not The End Of The World on April 29th, 2016 via Entertainment One (eOne), the first since signing with the indie label last year. The band’s own Leon Lyazidi produced the record with help from well known producer Johnny K, who executive produced. The band is eager to release their songs to the world, the band spent a good portion of the spring locked away in Groovemaster Studios in Chicago.
“This is the perfect time to release this record,” says Preotu. “A time where America is angry, frustrated, lost, but hopeful. The songs are honest and biographical to the point that every lyric made me cry as it transported me to important and memorable moments of my life. Moments of loss and hope, moments that every citizen and immigrant can relate to.”
Anchored by songwriting duo Uliana and guitarist Leon Lyazidi, the band has come a long way from their previous projects in New York City. What served as an artistic restart has turned into a runaway train of accomplishment that seems to be going faster as time goes on. The band signed a new deal with eOne Music last year. “eOne is real,” says Leon. “When we set out to launch Cilver, we were looking for people who ate, slept and bled music just like we did. eOne was clearly a cut above everyone else and we couldn’t be more excited to be part an amazing roster, led by a passionate and creative team.”
Uliana was recently featured in the Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock issue of the magazine and calendar. After a series of radio festivals and showcases, CILVER then found themselves on a boat with Motörhead for the Motorboat Cruise this past fall. In similar fashion, the band also participated on the ShipRocked Cruise this January, which sailed from Miami to the Bahamas.
