The Silent League and Maps collaboration tour later this month.
Brooklyn’s Silent League come to the UK for a few very special shows in support of their acclaimed 3rd album, “But You’ve Always Been The Caretaker” (Something In Construction).
However, these shows will be special collaborative gigs between band leader Justin Russo (guitars and loops), Mute Records artist MAPS (beats and fireworks) and will feature a string quartet. They will play Silent League songs, covers and new jointly written material.
MAPS and The Silent League became friends after playing together in NYC a few years back and have been swapping music over the internet leading to the following shows.
