Finnish hard rock/metal band Smackbound have released their new video “Wall Of Silence” from recently released debut album, 20/20.
Smackbound features the multi-talented vocalist and actress Netta Laurenne, who founded the group in 2015.
Guitarist Teemu Mäntysaari (WINTERSUN) was the first to join Netta in the band and they were soon joined by Rolf Pilve (STRATOVARIUS, WINTERSUN) on drums, Vili Itäpelto (TRACEDAWN) on keyboards, and Tuomas Yli-Jaskari (TRACEDAWN) on bass.
Soon after their formation, the band started crafting their own songs while simultaneously forming a cover band, Run for Cover, to begin developing their live chemistry without delay.
Songs came together quickly and the band debuted with a string of videos and singles including “Drive it Like You Stole It”, “Wall of Silence”, and “Run”, which caught the attention of Frontiers A&R team.
Frontiers reached out to the band to begin conversations, which ultimately culminated in a deal being struck.
20/20 was recorded at Sonic Pump Studios, produced by the band, and mixed and mastered by Jesse Vainio (Sunrise Avenue, Apocalyptica, Poets Of The Fall).
