Band on Band: Flight of Silence

Flight of Silence are a four-piece hard rock band with members from all across Connecticut and Massachusetts, centralizing in Manchester, CT. The band consists of Brian Eldridge on vocals and guitar, Louis Nocera on guitar and backing vocals, Tim Leffingwell on bass, and Greg Johnson on drums. After Brian, Tim, and Louis met in an on-campus organization at their alma mater University of Connecticut, they found their drummer in Greg after seeing his YouTube drum covers, and the rest is some sort of history.

What originally started as Eldridge’s musical project quickly became a band once bassist Tim Leffingwell and then-guitarist Kwasi Wrensford joined the group and started playing acoustic shows around the eastern CT area, all while recording their electric debut album. After releasing the album Enigmatic on April 15th, 2016, the band gained traction around Connecticut with the lead single “In the Shade”, garnering airplay on college radio across the state. In May 2016, Greg Johnson joined to make the loud louder and complete the four-piece line-up Flight of Silence was always aiming for. Wrensford parted ways with the band in May 2017 with a move to California and a PhD in his sight, and in entered Louis Nocera, forming the line-up Flight of Silence boasts today.

Now three years old, the band is currently writing their sophomore album, tentatively titled Solstice, named after the first song the band wrote outside of Enigmatic. While no release date is in mind yet, the band has been writing what they call their best material yet, showing off all of their influences, from Eldridge’s love of catchy rock choruses, Johnson’s knack for odd time signatures, Leffingwell’s blues background, and Nocera’s genius of harmonies of both vocals and guitar, adding a whole new dimension to the band’s sound.

The guys are especially excited to make their Massachusetts debut at PA’s Lounge in association with WEMF next month. A full list of dates can be found below:

March 1st – PA’s Lounge, Somerville MA
March 2nd – Barnes & Noble, Storrs CT
March 10th – The Cave, West Haven CT
April 6th – Stella Blues, New Haven CT
