Overview: Splinter hit the scene in 1997 with a musical style so broad that descriptions have ranged from "acoustic dreaminess" with "entrancing lyrics" to "industrialized throttle" and "industrial with a heart." Subsequent years found the band touring the east coast, drawing fans from New York to Florida and captivating audiences with an intense live show.
After self-producing their first two releases, Fragments and Sew It Shut, the band entered the studio in 2001 to begin work on what would become their most elaborate effort to date. Recording in Atlanta Georgia and removed from the distractions of their Philadelphia home, the band turned out the ten songs that would become their latest album, The Emptying.
Smith's haunting melodies and heartfelt lyrics have the ability to wisp the listener away and draw them into his own creation of raw and often somber stories
Released in January 2002, The Emptying is also an appealing collection of modern rock tracks, combi Artist Site
