SILENT CIVILIAN: 'Ghost Stories' First-Week Sales Revealed

"Ghost Stories", the sophomore album from SILENT CIVILIAN — the band led by SPINESHANK vocalist Jonny Santos — sold around 1,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 21 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

The SILENT CIVILIAN song "Let Us Prey" is available for streaming below (courtesy of AOL's Noisecreep).

"When we wrote that song we wanted to show so many different sides to the band in one song," Santos told Noisecreep. "We did blast beats on that song, which is something we've never done. We were really trying to experiment with different things. I just feel it takes you on a ride."

"The Last One Standing", the new video from SILENT CIVILIAN, can be viewed below. The clip was directed by Scott Hansen (A DAY TO REMEMBER, ALESANA, A SKYLIT DRIVE, CARNIFEX), and it turned out "fucking amazing," according to the band.

SILENT CIVILIAN's debut album, "Rebirth of the Temple", was released in May 2006. The CD was recorded at Undercity Recordings with former MACHINE HEAD/SOULFLY guitarist Logan Mader producing and mixing.
