J Records put out Silvertide’s
EP American Excess in 2002, but the band has yet to release
an album. However, they are pleased with their partners.
Nick says that, “We’ve had a label that was
very good to us… There’s a lot of good bands,
but unfortunately a lot of them aren’t signed and
don’t have the backing.”
Since joining J Records Silvertide has relocated from The
City of Brotherly Love to the Big Apple. They enjoy being
in New York, but Brian quips, “I won’t buy cigarettes
in New York.” The move to New York and their increased
visibility got them a gig opening for Godsmack this past
fall. Walt says that “Godsmack fans were really half
and half with us. Some nights would love us others would
hate us.” The tour was a new experience for them,
playing regularly in medium sized venues with large crowds
in the thousands. Still, even though they are back on their
regular tour schedule, the band plays with explosive energy.
Walt runs through the audience at the Bowery Ballroom and
makes his way to the balcony while Nick climbs down from
the stage and plays in the audience. Silvertide’s
set ends with a fiery end with Walt crooning on a table
high above the audience on the balcony.
