“Like many of our songs, Hesitate came about during a band writing session. It was the summer of 2020. We’d recently returned to the studio after not seeing each other since the pandemic began. All of us were both relieved and unnerved. Relieved to get back to work and unnerved as in, WTF is going on! Considering the circumstances of the pandemic at that time, we didn’t know how comfortable we’d be working closely in our somewhat small recording studio. But the uneasiness lasted all of 30 seconds. Once we got going, the work was carefree, cathartic and rejuvenating. New ideas poured out immediately and we chased them down throughout the fall of 2020,” says Frontman Peter Argyropoulos.
“Hesitate” hinges on a hulking hard rock groove before leaning into the crunch of a palm-muted riff. Argyropoulos explains, “I was clearly pulling from a lot of the different sentiments that have been floating around in the air since last summer and the fall. It looks at the culture clashes and even cancel culture to a degree.”
In the midst of the Global Pandemic, Sons of Silver unleashed the aptly titled Doomsday Noises to widespread critical acclaim. American Songwriter deemed the band a “Supergroup,” along with praise from Consequence of Sound and Paste Magazine to name a few. The songs from Doomsday Noises have amassed over 5 million views on YouTube and over 200k streams, and three out of the five tracks on the EP garnered spots on Billboard Active Rock Chart.
During the summer of 2020 the band started to write again. Armed with new music, they hit their studio together, as safely as possible. “The moment we got back into the studio after quarantine, we were like, ‘Why did we take so long to get back to this?’ It reconfirmed everything we love to do together.”
