SPRING UK TOUR WITH HEAVY SALAD
Wonky-funk cartoon freaks SILENT–K have announced details of their third single, DOORSTEP, ahead of their debut album mixed by famed Arctic Monkeys producer Ross Orton later in the year. Following their sold-out tour supporting fellow Liverpool legends Cast, the band have now also announced a Spring UK tour with Manchester head collective HEAVY SALAD which will also feature renaissance rebel Joel Goldberg aka DANCING TO ARCHITECTURE.
DOORSTEP is the latest offering from the SILENT–K rock n rollercoaster repertoire, with claims that it’s their best tune yet. As frontman Chris Taylor explains, “We’ve been eager to release Doorstep since Ross (Orton) finished the mix last year. It’s a funked up, wonky-punk angular beast”. Orton certainly knows how to bring the party and he’s nailed it down tight with this mix.
The DOORSTEP single will be released on 23 March with the official video premiere to follow on 5 April

SILENT–K are a ferocious four piece with unique and infectious melodies and electrifying, rip-roaring hip-hop infused rock n roll that has already seduced and charmed audiences into their fizzy-pop platter of sonic fury and vivacity.
Chris Taylor – aka Pineapple King – has been at the forefront of the line up since the band’s inception, having previously toured on guitar for both Fat White Family and Dave McCabe & The Ramifications. “We’re on a mission to capture the imagination of the UK music scene,” he says. “The songs carry meaning and substance, and we want to unite all the true like-minded heads out there and keep pushing the envelope.”
SILENT–K was originally co-founded by Taylor with Dave McCabe from critically acclaimed Liverpool band The Zutons. Although no longer a permanent live member, McCabe still makes the occasional guest appearance and features strongly on the debut album.
