The Silver Chords Head to SXSW

The Silver Chords are an LA based ‘dark-psychedelic super group’ forged in late 2011 from reputable elements of the west coast psych scene. Fronted by Sasha Vallely of renowned ‘spaghetti-psych’ pioneers Spindrift, The Silver Chords performance/studio roster features members who hold or have held tenure in such bands as Warlocks, Psychic TV, The Black Angels, The Black Keys, Cat Power, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Entrance Band, The Meek, Gong, Sky Parade, Black Ryder, Yahowha 13, and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.

With just one epic performance under their belt, The Silver Chords have already generated enough buzz to book another 11 gigs, including 6 promising performances during Austin’s SXSW2012 and slots at 2 other California based festivals, one of which is the inaugural Psych Fest West –the anticipated west coast expansion of the renowned Austin Psych Fest.

Currently tracking for their debut album at Ultra Sound Studios in downtown Los Angeles, The Silver Chords are preparing themselves for a year of substantial benchmarks highlighted by letters of interest from labels, distributors, and international booking agencies.
