Silverstein Premiere “Bankrupt” Music Video

Silverstein have premiered a new video for their new song “Bankrupt.“ Guitarist Paul Marc commented:

“I don’t know how to feel anything but rage anymore. The rich are getting richer and poor are getting poorer. Wages are stagnant, tuition costs are rising, jobs are being automated/off-shored, costs of a home are laughable in most major cities. The walls feel like they’re closing in and escape is starting to feel impossible. Two-faced leaders and greedy elected officials line their pockets while stripping funding for the programs that we actually need. What are we supposed to do now? Looking out for one another on a community level is good, but changing a crooked system is better.”

Silverstein Announce February Virtual Concerts

Silverstein have announced a three-show streaming series, which they are calling “Out Of This World.” The performances will include a greatest hits set, a “Discovering The Waterfront” set, and an acoustic/unplugged set.

Here’s the dates:

February 6 – Greatest Hits Set
February 13 – “Discovering The Waterfront” full album performance
February 20 – Acoustic/Unplugged Set

Shane Told commented:

“After our ‘Next Level Livestream‘ we thought about how we could step up our game even more! ‘Out Of This World‘ will offer three different sets featuring our greatest hits, acoustic jams and ‘Discovering The Waterfront‘ in its entirety. But of course, it will be more than just music, more than just bangers… We have enlisted some of the best people in the country to help us pull this off, so expect the finest in production quality, video and sound. Fans will get to hear a variety of tunes spanning our entire career and a few songs we haven’t played live in a long time… or ever. Make sure you swing by our merch ‘table’ and pick something up too!”

Tickets can be found HERE. Some options will include an “Out Of This World” soundtrack from producer Mike Tompa.

Shane Told commented:

“‘Redux: The First Ten Years‘ was such a pleasure to make and so well received we knew we wanted to make another one at some point. Of course, we didn’t foresee the circumstances surrounding 2020, but it gave us some time and an opportunity to put together this super fun album of songs that never really held the spotlight.

Most of these songs I always thought were great–underrated “deep cuts” that unfortunately were hard to fit into the setlist but in many cases deeply revered by our biggest fans. We were excited to give these tunes a fresh coat of paint and in some cases make a few renovations that could maybe give them the attention they deserve.

I will admit a couple of the songs on this album weren’t my favorites when they were originally released. Maybe it was the mix, the performance, or the song itself, but for some reason they never quite spoke to me. We took on the challenge to find out exactly why they fell flat, and what we could do to find that original magic that existed when they were first written.

These songs were reworked, rethought and perfected and now have become some of my favorites we have ever recorded. It’s refreshing and rewarding to be able to bring the knowledge and skills you’ve developed for so many years and go back and breathe new life into something from a different era of the band.

A huge thank you goes out to Sam Guaiana for taking on this Redux project again and allowing us to share this album with you. He took our collective visions and transformed these songs into what they always should have been. I hope you enjoy these even more than the originals–I know I do.”

Silverstein Release Alternate Version Of “Infinite”

Silverstein have released an alternate version of their song “Infinite.“ The original version of the track is featured on the band’s latest album “A Beautiful Place To Drown.”

Guitarist Paul Marc Rousseau commented:

“‘Infinite‘ was born in the black hole of anxiety—unable to remember ‘normal,’ the fear of not knowing when the feeling will end, or if it will end at all. I think everyone has experienced that type of anxiety to some extent, and for me being locked down in the early stages of Covid-19 poured gas on the fire.

Facets of anxiety that once felt difficult to name or truly pin down slowly became concrete, tangible things. The sadness I was experiencing was no longer abstract or personalized, it was something practically everyone on Earth was relating to in real-time. As days became weeks and weeks became months, it was hard, if not impossible, to see any light at the end of the tunnel.

I love the album version of ‘Infinite.’ It screams into the void. It captures the emotional and physical frustration, the anger of being trapped in an anxious loop. But as of late, I feel more sadness than anger, and I thought ‘Infinite‘—which for months now has felt more relevant than I ever could have known—could be rearranged to feel more like I feel.”

Silverstein Release Alternate Version Of “Where Are You”, Announce Rescheduled Dates For 20th Anniversary Tour

Silverstein have released an alternate version of their song “Where Are You.“ The original version of the track is featured on the the band’s latest album “A Beautiful Place To Drown.“

Shane Told commented:

“Despite not being a single ‘Where Are You‘ was one of our favorite tracks on ‘A Beautiful Place To Drown‘. We decided to put a different spin on it and show how its composition can shine both as a heavy, riffy jam, and also as a chill, reflective arrangement.

And after such great feedback from ‘Quaranstein‘, recorded live from our homes, we wanted to plan something special when it was finally safe for the five of us to get together. So here is a ‘Next Level’ livestream, using the best sound and video equipment available to capture the ultimate performance of our classic songs.

And get ready for some surprises, this will be unlike any live stream you’ve seen before.”

The livestream Told mentioned will take place on July 19. Tickets for the virtual event can be found HERE with a portion of the proceeds set to go towards the National Independent Venue Association.

Silverstein Release “Quaranstein” Documentary/Live Performance

Silverstein have shared a new documentary/live performance which they are calling “Quaranstein.” You can check that out below:

Drummer Paul Koehler commented:

“Upon returning home from our postponed North American tour, we knew that we had to find a way to play together. Instead of just hopping on a Zoom call, we actually wanted to record and make this thing sound awesome. Each of us performed and recorded our parts at home, and we passed the whole thing to our producer, Sam Guaiana, to mix it.

From there, we wanted to make what feels like a sitcom, documenting our time in isolation and pulling the curtain back on our daily lives. We enlisted Wyatt Clough, the director behind most of our recent music videos, to help edit and narrate the video. We hope the end result is something that can bring some comfort to our fans who are also isolated during this time, and we can’t wait to step on stage for them again once this is all behind us!”

August Burns Red & Silverstein’s Shane Told Share Quarantine Cover Of NOFX’s “Linoleum”

August Burns Red and Silverstein‘s Shane Told have shared a quarantine cover of NOFX‘s “Linoleum.“ You can check that out below:

August Burns Red’s JB Brubaker commented:

“ABR covered ‘Linoleum‘ by NOFX on a 7″ we did in 2009. We busted it out on tour periodically over the years. This past summer, while touring with Silverstein, we played it semi-regularly with Shane Told handling the vocals. While we were all stuck at home in isolation, we thought it would be fun to put together a quarantine version of ‘Linoleum‘ that featured Shane.

We each recorded our own parts at home and our sound engineer Chris Pollock mixed the audio together. Then, we had our touring photographer, Ray Duker, edit all the videos together. This was a fun project for us to put together, and we hope you enjoy it.”
