A Blinding Silence is a band and family that has a dream, a philosophy, and a goal: love, beauty, music, and hope. "We're looking to do more than just make great music. We're also looking to help feed the hungry, support local music, and convey messages of inspiration."
Their influences range from rock, to punk, to indie, to metal. Their singles "Miseries and Miracles", "A Walk Alone", "An Orphan of the Storm", and "To Sleep and Dream" are songs that have blasted A Blinding Silence to the forefront of today's unsigned bands. Their songs are currently receiving college radio airplay and are being spun on almost every internet radio station around.
The band has been Buzzplay's "Artist of the Month" twice and has been ranked as high as #2 on Purevolume's "Unsigned Artist Chart" (in the Alternative, Screamo, and Post Hardcore genres).
In 2006 an investor and his movie crew set out to make a film about "the battle a band goes through, the circumstances, and the temptations that are sometimes thrown in our paths to defeat us." They were looking to cast "a band that was truly talented and in the midst of working, sweating, and bleeding for their art." They felt that the boys had the music and the faith to carry the film. The entire band was cast in the lead roles and in February of 2006, A Blinding Silence finished filming their movie debut in the indie film "Silent Cries".
In addition to the film, the band was approached by Hollywood Director Josh Martin and 24 Bros. Production. Shortly after the movie wrapped, they filmed and completed the major motion video to their hit single "Miseries and Miracles".
Because of their wide appeal, A Blinding Silence is gaining fans and supporters on a worldwide level. They simply write songs and lyrics that people fall in love with. They are also in possession of one of the most amazing live shows around.
Though often compared to breakout artists like Story of the Year, Taking Back Sunday, Coheed and Cambria, The Used, and old Finch, there's no band that quite sounds like A Blinding Silence.
