TV Death
A new name for the 4 piece from the north east of England – after some odd and inconvenient digital cross-pollination with bands of a similar name, TV Death are the former Radio Silence lads.
“On the strength of this flawless debut EP, Radio Silence have the potential to be the best no-holds-barred rock & roll group to come out of Newcastle since The Animals. This is the start of something special.” -  Louder Than War: https://louderthanwar.com/radio-silence-isolation-ep-review/
“Blustery guitars, manic drum hits, and combative Richard Hell vocals. 2021 is the new Orwellian 1984. And Radio Silence [TV Death] don’t like it all.” – Turn Up The Volume: https://turnupthevolume.blog/2021/03/25/combative-noise-frustrations-radio-silence-scores-with-debut-ep-isolation/
“..complete with riotous rhythms, surfs up guitar sounds, fuzzy intensity and brooding The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster-esque vocals. It’s a darkly refreshing and relevant listen..” – NARC magazine: https://narcmagazine.com/interview-radio-silence/
