"Due to personal reasons," guitarist Dave Delacruz has left SILENT CIVILIAN, the band led by SPINESHANK vocalist Jonny Santos. Dave says in a statement, "As much as it was a difficult decision, it was the right decision. We made some great music and I was very happy to contribute to writing 50% percent of [the latest SILENT CIVILIAN album] 'Ghost Stories'. I will now be putting all of my attention to my Orange County, California-based band UNVEIL THE STRENGTH. UNVEIL THE STRENGTH is a much more 'melodic' band in a sense. It's a bit slower at times but has its fast, dark, and heavy side with blistering guitar work. Every song tells a story in which most can relate to.
"We currently have been recording the debut from our home studio and it has been getting more and more attention since we've started putting out songs.
"We are very excited to see what the future has in store for us.
"You can check out the music and studio video at this location.
"I hope you all enjoy it and I will be sure to see you on the road sooner than later!"
SILENT CIVILIAN's sophomore album, "Ghost Stories", sold around 1,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 21 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
