Imperative PR are honoured to announce the return of My Silent Wake to our roster – this time for a twelve month management and consultancy deal. We were proud to be given the opportunity to promote the band’s last album, the truly magnificent “Damnatio Memoriae” and are excited to extend our working relationship further.
My Silent Wake have just celebrated ten years in existence and during the last decade they have released a dark host of enthralling albums and EPs, becoming one of the most respected figures in British doom.
The band have recently recruited keyboard player Simon Bibby, who played in Seventh Angel, the band from whose ashes My Silent Wake were first formed. This is the first time in their history that My Silent Wake have had a dedicated keyboard player in their ranks and Simon’s arrival opens even more doors for the band, particularly in terms of their live performance. With Imperative PR by their side and their line-up complete, My Silent Wake can begin a whole new chapter in the band’s history…and we confidently predict that wonders await..
This year expect more from My Silent Wake than ever before. Prepare to embrace the heartbreak as darkness descends…
Although sometimes associated with the ‘Christian Metal’ scene, mostly because of the association of Ian Arkley in Seventh Angel; My Silent Wake are expressedly not a Christian band. Some lyrical themes deal with ideas of faith and loss of faith, but in deeply personal ways, and more universally, rather than obivously …
“Eye Of The Needle” has been released last month, the album sees them embracing their dark ambient/experimental side. Our review can be found here.
