Biography

Silvertide is an American blues rock band. They come from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.


Silvertide was formed in January 2001 in Northeast Philadelphia. At first, Silvertide (which was originally called Vertigo) had four members: lead singer Walt Lafty, lead guitarist Nick Perri, rhythm guitarist Mark Melchiorre, and drummer Kevin Frank . The lineup was completed with the addition of bassist Brian Weaver. They considered themselves musical outsiders during high school due to the fact that they prefered the Rolling Stones and The Who over more contemporary music. They were playing in Philly rock clubs before they were out of high school. By the end of 2001 Silvertide had been creating a buzz on the Philadelphia Indie rock scene. Their first big break came when they opened for Aerosmith during their world tour. The buzz lead them to be signed by Clive Davis’ J Records. They released their first EP “American Excess” in 2002. The next summer they went to Los Angeles to record their first full album Show and Tell which was released in 2004. The future of the band has been in doubt, but it is currently considered to be on hiatus due to pending legal issues. Until these legal issue are resolved, Nick Perri joined Shinedown and subsequently left after touring with them in 2008. Walt Lafty released an acoustic solo record through You Guys Media LLC. At this point in time both Walt Lafty and Brian Weaver are currently writing, recording and touring with their new band Automatic Fire.

    I agree PhatBasta... I don't see why they didn't just reform Silvertide after Automatic Fire :/

    i was recently going threw old magazines and stuff and came across a page i'd pulled outta hit parader from 2002 about this band. i've never heard any of their music but they're look was a great 90s throw back. i'm surprised to see they're still making music.

    Why don't they just reunite this band instead of doing side projects that aren't as good? :S
