Silent Treatment

Silent Treatment


A fresh face in this generation of young bands that serves up guitar-driven rock incorporating influences from Led Zeppelin to Foo Fighters, highlighted by a distinctive vocal sound reminiscent of Chris Cornell and Jim Morrison.


SILENT TREATMENT (ST) independently, released their latest album, New American Dream in 2009, with co-producers Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Shania Twain) and Mark Renk (Daughtry, P.O.D). The album’s first single, “Fear” has been heard on MTV’s Real World/Road Rules Challenge.

“This album places emphasis on our collective musical growth and focus,” explains Rosales. “Our lyrical themes provide a unique positive outlook on many of the economic, environmental and social dilemmas facing young people worldwide.”

SILENT TREATMENT plays a relentless schedule throughout the Western, Midwestern and Southern regions of the United States and has developed a dedicated fan-base in their hometown of Los Angeles, and other cities including: San Jose, San Francisco, Sacramento, Portland, Bakersfield, Reno, Denver, Austin and Orange County. Recently they have shared the stage with some of their heroes: Joe Perry (Aerosmith) and Michael Anthony (Van Halen). Silent Treatment also performed in March at the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX and followed it up with a twenty date Spring US Tour.
