Silent Civilian are extremely excited to kick off the worldwide touring cycle for their much anticipated new album, Ghost Stories, on May 16th with Fear Factory, Prong and Thy Will Be Done. This North American trek will take the band cross country and fans can expect a lot of songs from the new album, which is set for a May 18th release through Mediaskare Records.

Jonny Santos (vocals, guitars) further comments: “I am very excited to be a part of this tour. Not only has FF been one of my all-time favorite bands, but they have been like family to me over the years, especially Dino. He is like my metal Dad, and had a lot to do with the start of my career back in the early SS days. He gave me my first U.S. and European tours and basically taught me how to survive on the road, as well as proper tour etiquette. This tour couldn’t have come to us at a better time, since our record comes out 5/18 and the tour starts two days before that. It will allow us to sell the record at our merch booth and give the fans an opportunity to meet the band and get a CD signed.
“We have always been a band that tries to stay close to our fans and interact with them as much as possible. I also feel that this tour will open us up to a lot of fans who have never heard of us and push the SC name out there a little more. I have to say I’m just as excited to tour with Prong. I was a huge fan of them as well when I was a kid. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone in Thy Will Be Done and predicting this tour to be an all around success! We are going to play a lot of new material live, and plan on crushing the fans every night. This is gonna be one brutal fucking tour, and I am very honored to be a part of the ‘Fear Campaign.’ I will see all you guys out there on the road.”
Silent Civilian stormed onto the metal scene with their stunning debut offering, Rebirth of The Temple, in 2006 led by Spineshank vocalist Jonny Santos, who used this platform to unleash all of his inner demons. This was an extremely aggressive outing that took the scene by storm and its follow-up looks to take everything to the next level. This is the new wave of melodic thrash metal.
