Drummer Pat Johnson and vocalist Rolf-Carlos Klausener formed SILKKEN in the fervour of Ottawa’s underground arts explosion of 2011. Over a few short years, the band became synonymous around town for wild live shows, packed warehouse parties, and rallying community in their music videos. Along the way, they shared the stage with The Juan Maclean, Austra, Bonobo, YACHT, among others.

After a 6-year hiatus, SILKKEN return with their final album, ANCHORS.
