This year Silverstein are celebrating their 20th
anniversary, a rare milestone for any band but even more impressive for one
that’s been as consistently active, influential, and crowd-pleasing as the
Ontario-based post-hardcore legends. The band are celebrating all year long
with a packed touring schedule and the release of their ninth studio album, A Beautiful
Place To Drown
, due out March 6th from UNFD. It’s an album
that fittingly encapsulates the best of Silverstein while pushing their
sound into daring new territory. Today the band are sharing the record’s
blistering opener “Bad Habits
which highlights Silverstein‘s signature blend of aggression and melody
along with a mind-melting guitar solo from Intervals’ Aaron Marshall.

“This record largely deals with the feeling of defeat that
can come from trying to overcome your demons, but ‘Bad Habits’ turns that
upside down. It’s resigned rather than aspirational. ‘Bad Habits’ is a banger
that takes place in that sliver of daylight between recognition and regret.
After action, but before reaction. For these three minutes, we’re embracing the
devil on our collective shoulde

Paul Marc Rousseau

Marshall’s contribution to “Bad Habits” is one of
many guest features on A Beautiful Place To DrownSilverstein
may be proud torchbearers of the emo and post-hardcore scenes but appearances
from artists as varied as Underoath’s Aaron Gillespie, Beartooth’s Caleb Shomo,
Simple Plan’s Pierre Bouvier, and perhaps most surprisingly, hip hop fireband
Princess Nokia, are indicative of the band’s wide-reaching impact and their
ability to reach listeners in all worlds of music. A Beautiful Place To
captures this appeal in its dynamic range of sounds and styles,
all made cohesive by the performances of vocalist Shane Told, guitarists Paul Marc
Rousseau and Josh Bradford, bassist Billy Hamilton, and drummer Paul Koehler. Silverstein
pushed themselves lyrically as well, exploring the mental duress that seems to
be inextricable from the personal and societal challenges of modern life, often
focusing on external perspectives and even political elements without losing
the band’s trademark intimacy. A Beautiful Place To Drown
is sure to please old fans and new ones alike, proving exactly why Silverstein
remain a vital and powerful voice in punk rock and beyond. 

“When we finished putting together ‘Bad Habits’ I knew it was going to be a fan favourite.  This song is action packed and just plain fun. It’s a rush of adrenaline and then Aaron from Intervals comes in shredding and just puts it over the top.”Shane Told
