[SOURCE: Ivory Music And Video 2013 APR 17] — Every one of us has had his share of ecstasy and hurt brought about by that desire to be with someone. As they say, to love and to be loved gives the deepest of joys and at the same time, the saddest of pains.
Silent Sanctuary sings about this bittersweet experience, and more. Writing based on their own encounters with love and thoughts of their experiences, their sound became more distinct as they fuse rock and classical instruments. The cello and violin, together with the guitar, and the bass and drums reverberates the stories of ex-lovers, and hopeless romantics, along with other stories we know of love. The guys of Silent Sanctuary never expected that their songs will be the anthem of many.
Early in their musical career back at 2001, they started out with Goo Goo Doll songs as their main repertoire. Eventually, they started writing their own materials. The band went through line-up changes at the same time as finding their way around the scene and constantly improving and perfecting their craft.
Silent Sanctuary landed a record deal 2006 and released two full-length studio albums – Fuschiang Pag-ibig and Mistaken for Granted; both spawned hits, which dominated radio, TV, online and various music charts, “Ikaw Lamang”, “Kundiman”, “Summer Song”, “Hiling”, “Hay Naku”, among others. Unreleased singles “14”, “Kismet”, and “Ingat Ka” received as much following as the released singles and are most requested during live performances and gigs.
Now with their new home label, Ivory Music and Video, the band is set to release an EP album this June 2013. “Bumalik Ka Na Sa ‘Kin” the upcoming EP’s carrier single, gives us a sneak peak of what’s in-store for us. This upbeat pop rock song with a chorus that will leave you subconsciously humming because the melody and words stuck in your head, expresses an earnest desire to get back together with a significant other.
Silent Sanctuary continues to deliver their signature “classical music meets rock music” sound with this brand new single. Check out the preview below:
