The five piece Amsterdam-based darkwave / postpunk band Silent Runners have released their 11-track debut album The Directory, two years after their initial self-titled Silent Runners EP (2015). The album featuring a classic 80s synth sound is self-recorded and produced by the band in their own studio. Mastering was done at Metropolis Mastering (UK) by Andy ‘Hippy’ Baldwin, who also worked with acts such as Interpol, The Who, Blur, Killing Joke and Arcade Fire.
The album is available for streaming on Bandcamp, SoundCloud, YouTube and Spotify. The eleven tracks revisit 80’s dystopian themes with a modern take, reflecting on the dire state of our society and modern world.
Upcoming shows for Silent Runners include December 8th, 2017 at Melkweg – Amsterdam, and April 7th, 2018 at Wavefest III in Baroeg – Rotterdam.
