The Silence Kit The Stairs EP

The Silence Kit is a Philadelphia-based post-punk band that plays textured, dark, indie rock. Inspired in equal parts by post punk, shoegaze, neo-psychedelia, avant-garde and indie rock, the band was started by singer/guitarist Patrick McCay back in 2002 as a solo recording project, eventually culminating in the first album "In Regulated Measure" (2006). "A Strange Labor," "Dislocations" and their pair of EPs "The Stairs" and "In Parts" followed, each release garnering positive reviews from a variety of press. The band's fourth LP entitled "Watershed" is released on April 8th on Azteca Records / Break Even Records, and it reflects the band's wide palette of songwriting, mood and texture. See the album's press release for release information.

Several lineups have seen the band gradually honing their sound through the years. The present lineup of Patrick McCay, bass player Don Ocava, and drummer Jay Dyer have been playing together since 2007. Benjamin Endling joined on guitar/keys in 2013.
