In an era when school bullying has become epidemic and sometimes turns deadly, a teenage New York City band, known as Radio Silence, is doing its part to curtail the madness. The video to their first single, "Renegade” starts out with superimposed text stating the fact that 6 out of 10 American teens witness at least one act of bullying a day. |
That statistic was gathered from a recent nationwide poll. The song's chorus goes on to say, "Get out, get out, hatred is the enemy". This young New York City band wants their fellow teens, from all over the world, to be comfortable being themselves, and to be able to go through their day without experiencing mindless bullying, that all too often rears its ugly head.
This New York City band consists of four high school males who are 16 years of age. Their music is undeniably catchy and their message is garnering the attention of the media. They have recently been featured on CNN as well as in The Huffington Post.
R and B megastar, Usher, recently invited them to participate in his New Look Foundation's, three day annual event, the World Leadership Conference, in Atlanta, Georgia to share their music and their message with several hundred up and coming teen leaders from all around the world.
Radio Silence might just be four kids in a New York City band, but they really believe that they can be a part of the social change that is necessary to help give young people the chance they need to thrive and to grow in a positive direction. In late 2010, The Hollywood Sentinel voted them the hottest rock act of the year, and they have only become hotter in 2011.
