The Silent League: File 13 Records presents The Orchestra, Sadly, Has Refused CD Release Party
The Brooklyn-based orchestral pop band The Silent League originated as the solo identity of singer Justin Russo in the late nineties. While a keyboardist with Mercury Rev in support of the critically acclaimed albums Deserter's Songs and All Is Dream, Russo secretly stole each available moment in a busy tour schedule to write and record his own fragile, epic and highly personal statement: The Orchestra, Sadly, Has Refused. Their forthcoming debut record, due out on March 23rd on File 13 Records -- hailed as "a masterful blend of sepia-toned chamber pop and sunny-sinister piano balladry" (Bang Magazine), "mesmerizing" and "majestic" by Time Out NY -- features performances from, among others, Sam Fogarino (Interpol) and Sean "Grasshopper" Mackowiack (Mercury Rev). Live, The Silent League is a large ensemble that skillfully melds a 70's-era piano balladry and sense of childlike vulnerability, with the heavily arranged and darker elements of Russo's former band.
