Thank You Scientist

Thank You Scientist is an eclectic seven piece progressive rock band from New Jersey. Founded by guitarist and band leader Tom Monda, the band self-released an EP in 2011, The Perils of Time Travel, before signing with Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez’s newly launched Evil Ink Records. Their 2012 full length debut, Maps of Non-Existent Places (re-released in 2014), was a critical success, making inroads on the Billboard Hard Rock and Heat-seekers charts, and was eventually named “Album of the Week” by Revolver Magazine in 2014. They followed up in 2016 with the ambitious Stranger Heads Prevail, which cracked the Billboard Top 200. In addition to original guitarist/band leader Tom Monda and vocalist Salvatore Marrano, the band’s lineup has gradually changed to include violinist Ben Karas, bassist Cody McCorry, drummer Joe Fadem, trumpeter Joe Gullace, and saxophonist Sam Greenfield. Thank You Scientist has spent the past several years touring internationally, both as headliners and as direct support for acts such as Coheed and Cambria, Periphery, Haken, Protest the Hero, Devin Townsend, Yes, The Aristocrats, and many more. The band is eager to follow up their 2016 release with their gargantuan third full length record, due in early 2019.

Silver Snakes

Following the success their sophomore record, Year of the Snake, Los Angeles’ Silver Snakes forges down a darker path with radical turns on their forthcoming record Saboteur. The band, comprised of Alex Estrada (vocals), Mike Trujillo (bass), Jeremiah Bignell (guitar) and Garrett Harney (drums), continues their evolution of sound by incorporating influences of ‘90’s industrial and elements of doom metal into their post-hardcore sound. The result is cathartic and innovative. Heavy, stabbing riffs crescendo into massive walls of guitars that give way to atmospheric and at times ethereal moments of calm that relay underlying messages of sabotage and deception.

“Saboteur is a record summed up by its title. It’s about sabotage, it’s about using direct action to accomplish a goal,” Estrada explains. “It can be applied to many situations: Personal, Political etc. It’s about having the passion to do absolutely whatever it takes to make a point even if it’s potentially harmful.”

Thematic elements of sabotage are felt throughout the record and relatable to listeners, including on their new song “Raindance,” which speaks to the manipulation in relationships.

”Raindance” was one of the first songs written for the record,” Estrada says. “It’s the follow up track to a song we previously released called “Sundance” which was about being caught up in abusive relationships.“Raindance” is about taking the plunge into new endeavors only to have voices from the past show up to steer you elsewhere. It’s the balance between sides, The person being torn down and the voice of negativity all speaking at once.”

Silver Snakes’ impending release also marks the beginning of their relationship with Coheed and Cambria guitarist/singer Claudio Sanchez’s label Evil Ink Records, who recently signed the band and will distribute Saboteur.

“We are very grateful to be working with Evil Ink Records for the release of Saboteur,” Estrada says. “Being part of a label founded by a musician as hardworking and successful as Claudio Sanchez is very exciting for us. We’ve had full creative control over every aspect of this release and could not be happier with the support they have shown us along the way.”
