Silent Theory debuted its new single this week, along with the song’s companion video.
The band debuted its new single ‘Shaking Cages‘ and its video Monday through Metal Insider. The song’s musical arrangement presents a distinct Linkin Park comparison as is evidenced in the guitar, vocals, and drums. An argument can also be made to compare the song’s approach and sound to that of works from Coheed and Cambria.
The lyrical content that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement presents an introspective statement. Front man Dakota Tyler discussed the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.
“Shaking Cages is a song that developed from the feeling of being stranded on an island and doing everything you can to be found,” he said. “It was also a direct statement from the band to showcase our growth from the last record to now. It grew from the wishful idea that if you set enough fires and shake enough cages you might be seen.”
The video for Silent Theory’s new single features the band in a darkly lit studio setting, with just a light and lit-up “X” helping to illuminate the setting. That backdrop is used intentionally to help illustrate the message in the song’s lyrical theme and the emotion presented in the lyrical and musical content.
