Silent Planet Premiere “Terminal”/”(liminal);” Video

Silent Planet have premiered a new video for their new songs “Terminal” and “(liminal);.” These tracks are from the band’s new album “Iridescent,” which will be released on November 12.

Garrett Russell commented::

“‘Terminal‘ was another song from this album that was inspired by my stay in a mental hospital. For most of my life I have been a very sober person, and this song is about my experience with mind-altering medications while being in-patient. As I took my meds, I watched the world shift around me, and even my own reflection started to shift.

I was met with strange visions and imagery, some of which was congruent with ancient mythology. It was during all of this that I began to wonder if the hopelessness was buried too deep for medications to solve on their own. Maybe, I wondered, this is simply the human condition.

But above all, I hope the listener understands that our albums are meant to be understood as whole pieces, and while this song is certainly coming from my genuine experience with despair, there’s more to the Iridescent story that’s yet to be revealed. Thanks for reading.”

Silent Planet Premiere New Song “Panopticon”

Silent Planet have premiered a new song titled “Panopticon.” You can check that out below. Garrett Russell commented:

“‘Panopticon’ paints a dystopian view of the future – one where technological advances have pacified the human spirit and made us apathetic in the face of an increasingly malevolent, post-singularity AI that was developed under the premise of security… ultimately becoming a tyrannical overlord. To communicate the story of humanity and its traditions being outmoded, we challenged ourselves to write a song with no guitar. Using only bass, electronic elements, and percussion – we developed this track over the course of the summer.”

Fit For A King and Silent Planet have released new versions of their songs featuring each other’s vocalists. Fit For A King’s Ryan Kirby took on Silent Planet‘s “Trilogy,“ while Silent Planet’s Garrett Russell took on Fit For A King‘s “Stockholm.“ The two groups have also released some collaborative merch with proceeds set to go towards Ryan’s wife Crystal Kirby. The following was said about that:

“…Crystal Kirby (Ryan‘s wife) has been in and out of the hospital over the last few months being treated for bloodclots in her brain. So our bands decided that the money from this sale, up to $5000, will go directly to the Kirby family to help covered what is not being covered by her insurance. We are a family. We are One. Love you all!”

Silent Planet’s Garrett Russell: “I’m Not Allowing Anxiety To Take Over”

As previously reported, Silent Planet’s Garrett Russell recently entered a psychological rehabilitation clinic to get help for mental health issues. Now, the vocalist has offered an update on his condition, saying that he is “not allowing anxiety to take over.”

Russell said the following:

“Merry Christmas from all of us. My bandmates are enjoying the day with family, and I’m so glad that’s the case. They deserve it. We love touring, of course, but it’s caused us to miss so many holidays and ceremonies.

For me this Christmas looks a little different than I could have expected. I suppose no one really plans to spend Christmas in a mental institution. And I’d be lying if I pretended that today hasn’t been difficult so far. After all, being here is the result of the greatest failure of my personal life – one that has shaken me to the core or my being, and put the entire band in a difficult financial position.

But I’m not allowing anxiety to take over. Not anymore. I am praying and fighting. I wish to be resilient – something that many of you have shown me with the stories you’ve shared at shows. Life is a gift and it’s worth fighting for – even if it’s not what you expect. Even if it hurts like hell. So here I am: Thankful to be alive and thankful for the many folks who have encouraged me while I’m in here. Especially my bandmates and our manager Cory – dudes who still haven’t given up on me.

So Merry Christmas. Whether this day finds you mourning, celebrating, or simply dizzy from the eggnog – don’t ever give up. After all, this day is a celebration that marks the beginning of the greatest revolution this earth hasn’t ever seen (in my humble opinion).

Also… Happy Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or
whatever else some of you might call this day!

P.S. We have something very special to show you 30 hours from now. Love you.”
