New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Reverend & The Makers
Official Website) - 'Silence Is Talking' is the brand new single taken from Reverend and the Makers second album 'A French Kiss In The Chaos'. Released on 13th July 2009 on 7?/CD and digital download through Wall of Sound, 'Silence Is Talking' rides on a blissed out euphoric groove and looks set to become a huge summer anthem, dominating the airways and dance floors from Sheffield to Ibiza, festivals and clubs, rockers and ravers.
'A French Kiss In The Chaos' is released on the 27th July and is the follow up to 2007's Top 5 album 'The State of Things' (which spawned several hit singles including 'Heavyweight Champion of the World' and 'He Said He Loved Me').
Produced by Jagz Kooner (Primal Scream/Kasabian) and mixed by Dave Sardy (The Ting Tings/Oasis/LCD Soundsystem) the album features 10 tracks covering topics such as global warming, Prozac and consumerism - but with an abiding and persistent sense of optimism and positivity.
Musically the new album embraces 60's psychedelia alongside a thoroughly modern and vibrant sound. 'Professor Pickles' weaves a hypnotic carousel of sound with pure pop, 'No Wood Just Trees' features soaring brass around an infectious hook. 'No Soap (In a Dirty War)' is a colossal tune which explodes into a life affirming sing-along chorus whereas the album finale 'Hard Time for Dreamers' is a delicate, brooding number shot through with vulnerability. 'A French Kiss In The Chaos' takes Reverend and the Makers musically leaps and bounds from their debut.
Jon McClure (The Reverend) and the band will head out on tour throughout the summer, playing headline shows, festivals and are special guests to Oasis on several shows.
They will play 5 nights in a row in London (8th - 13th July) at three different venues which will see them appear in front of over an incredible 275,000 people. The band have also just confirmed a UK headlining tour for October/November 2009.
