Electro-Indie Pop Collective to Play Free Concert on July 26
The South Street Seaport continues its season of free summer fun with a special concert from electro-indie pop sensations THE SILENT SCENE on July 26. The band, whose Continuing momentum after reaching the top of Billboard's Heatseekers Chart, VH1's Make A Band Famous, and's Discovery of the Week, The Silent Scene will take to the FRONT/ROW stage from 1pm-3pm, bringing their upbeat mix of electro-house and indie-dance sounds to Lower Manhattan.

Taking influences from the early 2000's pop-rock movement that infused fresh beats of the underground electronic scene, The Silent Scene is creating the sounds of a revolution for a new genre.  The band has revamped the traditional four-piece format by incorporating elements of electro-house and indie-dance to invent an entirely different sound that creatively molds together a refreshing blend of indie-rock and electro-pop.

Comprised of vocalists, songwriters and guitarists, Richie Arthur and Duran Visek; Ben Spremulli on keys; and Jeff Maurer on drums, The Silent Scene thrives on the beauty of creative freedom and aims to make genuine connections with their listeners. Their upcoming EP, 'Cities' (August 2014), is an audible depiction of the guys behind the band, and as the name Cities might suggest, the EP is a reflection of diversity: of music and of the band members as individuals.

The Silent Scene's special performance at the South Street Seaport is part of the Seaport's SEE/CHANGE 2014 summer lineup of activities, which already includes an array of curated retail pop-ups, culinary offerings, live music, outdoor cinema and family-friendly fare.

24hours/23 bands? The Silent Scene Booted For Age As VH1's Make A Band Famous Begins 

The Silent Scene Disqualified From Top 24 Due To Age Restriction Before VH1's Make A Band Famous Begins

New York, NY -- June 11 --   With over 2K applicants, one band stood out as the top contender in VH1's You Oughta Know Presents Make A Band Famous competition: The Silent Scene. Entering the competition at high velocity with recent media attention on their unique sound, The Silent Scene seemed poised to win VH1's 24-hour competition. The band's unique blend of rock, pop & EDM genres heard on their upcoming EP 'Cities' (July 2014) captivated not only industry tastemakers, including VEVO,, and Reverbnation, but also the Make A Band Famous team. The band's momentum in the competition ended abruptly today as they were notified by VH1 of their disqualification due to age restrictions.
Upon further clarification of the entry rules, The Silent Scene was notified that two of the members were just shy of the age requirement for application. Having extensive backgrounds in television, filming with major TV networks since early adolescence, The Silent Scene hoped exceptional talent would outweigh age limitations. "We really put a lot of work into this competition, but nonetheless we're really just grateful to have made it that far" said TSS keys player/producer, Ben Spremulli, on the news of disqualification, "I think we just wanted a chance to prove ourselves to VH1 and the judges. There was a lot of great talent there, and we would loved to have a chance to stand out on stage."  Though the band's unique compilation of genres captures the listeners attention, their energetic live show is notorious for sealing the deal in creating lifelong fans.

The Silent Scene is still encouraging fans to watch and participate in the competition streaming live tonight (6/11) on at 8 pm ET, wishing the other bands the best of luck. Watch a special message from The Silent Scene regarding the disqualification, along with a special thank you to VH1, Universal Music Group's Republic Records, and TSS fans here:

The Silent Scene was also particularly disappointed about not performing for the all-star panel of judges and mentors, a list which includes some of the band's greatest influences, such as superstars Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Ed Sheeran, Chris Daughtry, musical director guru Adam Blackstone, and host, All-American Rejects frontman Tyson Ritter. Duran Visek (TSS Vocals/Guitar) lightened the mood while describing his disappointment regarding judges, specifically Natasha Bedingfield, saying "We opened for her on New Years Eve 2010 in Miami, where I was lucky enough to kiss her on the cheek. I was about 15, but I'm sure she remembers it. I hoped to have the chance to try to impress with our performance in this competition."

With the Summer release of 'Cities,' their first EP as The Silent Scene, and a US tour in the works, the band's schedule is jam packed beyond the competition. Though highly unfortunate, the Make A Band Famous disqualification has motivated The Silent Scene to kick their upcoming campaign into high gear and impress fans and media without the final participation in MABF.
