Welcome to the Machine
On October 1st, 2012, on the 44th anniversary of George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, Asheville space-rock band Silver Machine released Silver Machine: Night of the Living Dead, which consists of a standalone concept album accompanied by a complete remastering of the 1968 film with a new soundtrack composed and performed by the band.

Formed in 2008, Silver Machine spent the first three years developing their unique sound, recording their first studio album, and performing at festivals and clubs throughout the southeast both as a headliner and in support of such acts as Boombox, Pnuma Trio, Conspirator, and the Malah. Their self-titled debut was released in 2010, and their first live album was recorded at the Autumnal Equinox of that year during an epic 4-hour set.
In June 2011, Silver Machine performed a “farewell” show at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC, before retreating into their studio-equipped spaceship to begin work on new material. In May of 2012 they released their sophomore album, Symmetry, after a successful crowdfunding campaign. They went on to record the first ever original soundtrack to George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead", which was released in October 2012 with the highest picture quality ever mastered to DVD. Silver Machine has already begun work on their next album, that can be described as “something completely different”, and is making preparations to score another film for release in 2013. All press and booking inquiries can be directed to Good Flow Productions, firstname.lastname@example.org
All of Silver Machine's music can be streamed for free or downloaded from www.silver-machine.net, and the band's album releases can be found on iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, and most major music retailers.
..."As a band, we're always discussing the idea of elevating ourselves and our listeners or trying to take our music to a strange place where we haven't been before... keeping our music open to re-invention and open interpretation... we try to reach a different level of consciousness through music..."
