A press release is below with further details
Does your heart still beat harder for their soft rock wonder?
THE SILENT LEAGUE
Some Things Go Missing
Something In Construction records
In an intensive six years of music-making, from 2005 to 2011, singer-songwriter Justin Russo (together with revolving elements of Interpol, Mercury Rev, St Vincent and Arcade Fire), put out three and a bit hugely acclaimed Silent League albums, made tunes with Maps and The Leisure Society, opened for TVOTR and Super Furries, got remixed by Neon Indian and played the main stage at Hyde Park.
Afterward, Russo decided to take a much-needed break and moved from Brooklyn to a house in the Catskills Mountains with pine trees and a pond, started a family and reconnected with the place he was born and where his family still lives today. The truth is, The Silent League’s geography was always misleading. While Justin was living in New York City, his heart was always upstate; the music of the Silent League was always the sound of the Catskills.
And so, in a funny way, they’ve come back home.And what a homecoming. Some Things Go Missing, the first single to appear in eight years, is a melancholic ballad full of warm strings, lush guitar, and more mature vocals, which retains the lyrical honesty of the earlier albums.
“It’s a sign of things to come,” Russo says. “The first song of an album I’ve been working on for nearly a decade, really. It’s like we’re picking up again from right where we left off. Looking back from where I am now, I feel like I’m writing a letter to my past self through these new songs.”
Some Things Go Missing is released MARCH 13 on Something in Construction Records, via all digital outlets, with an EP to follow.
