Welcome the Silence has been dormant for the last 10 months, recording and producing their latest album in the same studio in which they practice.

The garage lies outside Justin and Craig Bornemann's parents' house, and was built from scratch by the brothers, according to the specifications of the metal-tinged rock band.

Everyone in the Oklahoma City rock band has their own technical experience, ranging from vocalist Denovan Ratcliffe " who works at Guitar Center " to drummer Justin McCart and the Bornemann brothers, who build everything from their effects pedal board to the studio.

TOURING PLANS

Plans include touring constantly and negotiating with any record labels interested in listening to their new album, "Is Anyone Listening?," whose release will be celebrated with a party Friday night at the Bricktown Ballroom.
