The Silent Comedy

Listen to Exploitation

In 2006 a loose collection of musicians began to evolve into a quartet of performers who turn heads for their wild live performance, genre-bending sound, and unique aesthetic. In 2008, the group recorded their eponymous debut studio EP with Brian Karscig (producer, and founding member of Lous XIV – Atlantic Records). In keeping with their DIY tradition, the band self- produced their follow up LP, Common Faults, in 2010. The resulting buzz from sold- out pressings of both records, and sold-out shows around California, have resulted in sharing the bill with such diverse performers as Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Black Keys, Common, MGMT, Cold War Kids, Flogging Molly and more. The band is on tour in support of their newest release, Cruelty & Clemency (mixed by Brian Malouf)
