One Minute Silence will perform for the first time in seven years at Sonisphere 2011…
Writing and rehearsing has been the focus for the past six months and a new album is hoped for release later this year. Vocalist Yap comments: “Initially I wasn’t sure if the energy and punch that we had would still be there but when we got in the rehearsal room together there was no denying it – in fact it’s stronger than it ever was. Everything we were talking about politically and economically ten years ago has come true today and it’s appalling that honest working people are now footing the bill for decades of laissez-fair economics, corrupt banking and elite corporatocracy. We’re angrier than we ever were and more experienced this time with it – expect blood.”
Yap, guitarist Masimo Fiocco and bassist Glen Diani are joined by new drummer Martin Davies. He says: “I was recommended by a friend to Glen, who lives close to me in Bradford, to work with him on his solo project and we just jelled creatively straight away. Then last year when the idea of OMS was being discussed Glen put me forward and I met the band for some rehearsals earlier this year. I’m very excited about the raw energy and creativity within the dynamic of the band – it’s very current and subversive which is what I thrive on.”
