10 Questions we ask every band...
1). What are the names of your members?
Vocals: Ryan Tailor, Drums: Danny Lodge, Bass: Dan Slipper, Guitar: Alex Roddis, Guitar: Dalbs Judge
2). When did you all get together?
The band was originally formed by drummer Danny Lodge and Guitarist Jai Flannery who had been jamming together since they were kids. They then decided to form a band and uploaded some sample tracks of their music to myspace under the name 'Inspired by Lies' to attrack new members. Between the years of 2006 to 2008 they found Guitarist Alex Roddis and bassist Dan Slipper through the musician website 'join my band'. That was also where they latter found Vocalist Ryan Tailor in 2009 to complete the band line up which led to the name change 'Silent Resistance'.
Then midway through 2011 guitarist jai flannery left the band due to personal reasons which made way for Dalbs Judge to become the new resistance axe slinger, who will be playing his first gig on March the 10th 2012 at The Soundhouse in Leicester.

4). How would you describe your music?
We have a mixture of rock and metal influences and so we are abit of both and prefer to let others make their own minds up of what genre we fit into.
