FANS may scream and shout at gigs but they certainly don't say nothing!
Scream!Shout!SayNothing! formed by five friends from Hitchin, only started up in 2006 but have high hopes after rave reviews.
The band consist of Ben Davies, 22, on vocals, Dan Magee, 18, guitar and backing vocals, Jamie Dunn, 21, guitar and backing vocals, Ben Street, 22, drums and Chris Hollis, 24, bass and backing vocals.
When asked what they have been up to recently, Chris said: "We've been writing and rehearsing ever since we formed about a year ago, and started gigging properly last summer.
"We signed a deal with Scylla Records after about six shows, which was a bit of a shock for us, and then we put out our first EP this Christmas."
They have already made plans for 2007.
- 1 Car crashes with pedestrian on A602 Stevenage Road
- 2 Five teenagers arrested following 'violent disorder' in Stevenage
- 3 7 of the most beautiful churches in Hertfordshire
- 4 Plans for second multi-storey car park at Stevenage's Lister Hospital to help 'better meet demand'
- 5 Award-winning Hitchin nursery celebrates bumper year for staff
- 6 Hitchin Boys head to National Athletics Final
- 7 Plans approved for former Stevenage bus station site
- 8 Mental health crisis café to open in Stevenage
- 9 A1(M) closed in both directions near Letchworth
- 10 Alice, 10, set to chop long locks for Ukraine aid
Chris said: "We're just getting ourselves ready for a UK tour which kicks off in Beaconsfield on February 3, and then once we've recovered from that we'll probably be heading back into the studio to record an album.
We're also planning to release a download-only single after Easter - we have a producer in New York who really wants to do us a video for it so that'll be an awesome experience."
The bass player said that music lovers can expect: "A passionate, cathartic and emotive show. The shows are honest, we just want to make music that's not contrived in any way and hopefully we'll be able to make a connection with people."
Highlights include supporting Enter Shikari on Christmas Eve at Club 85, playing with respected artists and getting signed.
"It's a good feeling knowing that someone believes in your music enough to want to sign you."
Chris said his hopes for the future are: "To be able to play to more and more people and to keep having as much fun as we are now."
