New Remix Album - We Go Forward
The Silent League returns with "We Go Forward", a collection of classic Silent League tracks remixed by some of our favorite indie and electronic artists.

Happy New Year from the League! If all goes according to plan, it’s going to be an awesome one. Our EP has turned into a full album of remixes (due out April 24th) and we’re psyched to have so many people working on our music. Expect a massive collection of Silent League tunez to also be released later this summer w an accompanying UK tour. Oh, and if you missed the last New York City Show w String Ensemble, stay tuned, more to come!
new album, EP on the horizon...
Ok, so back from the UK. It was great. Special thanks to everyone for making it such a wonderful experience. About ready to get started writing the new album. Not sure where this one will go, but we’ve given ourselves the (crazy?) deadline of having the whole thing done by the end of the year. Also we’ll be working on... a live EP from this summers UK tour and a collab track with Maps. Think we can do it?
Check out the latest Silent League UK our photo’s up on Facebook Facebook. Thanks to everyone for a fun tour especially James from Maps.

Album, tour etc..
You have noticed remix tributes by Memory Tapes, Neon Indian (others on the way). Little murmurs coming from the direction of your best friend's closet.
"But You've Always Been The Caretaker...", The Silent League's 3rd record, is out in North America on Jan 27th. Advance notice from the Village Voice, Death + Taxes Magazine, Filter Magazine, Obscuresound.com, RCRD LBL, NY Press, Time Out NY, and TheLineOfBestFit.com have already hailed it as the League's best. It is not an immediate record. It is a slowly-gestating virus, an ALBUM in the most classic, anachronistic, and interesting sense of the word. There are many ways to buy this record -- a gorgeous physical cd + bonus disc (and eventually double LP) which gives you access to a secure online portal where the band will conintue to post free music (etc) all year long. You can also purchase the single album on iTunes. You can acquire it via download card for cheap, or free with t-shirts etc, purchased at shows. Shows?
The Silent League will make every attempt to visit your home this year. We begin with a short two-ish week jump down south as far as Florida, beginning Jan 28th (with a FREE party at Bruar Falls in Brooklyn). Accompanying us on tour is The Paper Hats, aka the stunningly beautiful solo guitar + electronics work of William Tyler of Lambchop and Silver Jews fame. Dates on this tour, and March-May dates are being added CONSTANTLY. Check back frequently.
