The members of the Long Island based rock band Blameshift have been blazing their independent path across the nation over the better part of 5 years, logging well over 200,000 miles of touring terrain. During that time the band could easily have taught a collegiate level course on band survival. With a high powered list of sponsors, their music as a full time job and a tour bus, (a literal bus), powered by vegetable oil, the band headed from New York to Los Angeles in late Nov 2012 to finish their full length album with producer Erik Ron (VersaEmerge, Good Charlotte, Panic at the Disco). What resulted was the full commercially driven sound that Blameshift has been envisioning since their inception. Expected release date April 2013.
The hype began about a year and a half ago when the band released their EP The Black Rose, a record fully funded by the bands loyal fans through a site called kickstarter.com. To return the favor the band offered a 100% free EP download in exchange for a facebook "like." Over 75 related music media outlets, including Taco Bell and Sullen Clothing, supported the bands release, nearly tripling their facebook likes and spreading the music further than they thought possible.
Soon after that release the band shot a music video with director Jay Sansone for their single "Ghost" off the Black Rose. As timing would have it Hot Topic coined the band Unsigned Band of the Month for August 2011 along with premiering the new music video. Within a very short time the band had over 100,000 hits as channels like BlankTV began pushing it as well. As "Ghost" became ever so popular it began climbing the charts into the top 10 at both alternative addiction radio & Ourstage.com Rock charts. MTV featured two songs from band on the hit seriers "The Real World" soon after their music video started making waves. To top it all, the youtube gaming world began using "Ghost" in montages for the game Call of Duty, reaching over 1.5 million views, making Blameshift an official youtube partner.
Blameshift left for the road December 31, 2011 for a 4 month tour around US and hasn't been home since. After playing numerous showcases at SXSW 2012 the band made is back to NY, only to find out they'd be right out on the road again for the summer with Straight Line Stitch. As their tour concluded in W Hollywood, CA late May, Blameshift got the confirmation that they'd be hitting the road with 12 Stones, Digital Summer and Throwing Gravity, nearly another month and a half of shows! A month later the band decided to repeat many of those same markets on their first ever headlining tour in the midwest with direct support from Dive. As that tour concluded Blameshift got added to the Reverbnation Tour which kicks off Jan 2013.
Screaming For Silence
Hard. Hard feelings. Hard work. Hard rock.

Beaten but not down, SCREAMING FOR SILENCE commands attention in the studio and especially live on-stage.
