Silverstein

Story

It takes numbers to craft a movement out of sound. It takes numbers, and it takes throat, calloused fingers, worn out joints, and a sea of voices singing along. It takes numbers, and it takes work. It takes playing basements and community centres as much as it takes stages, and festivals. It takes years of dedication, sincerity, and community. And yet, only a few artists are so honoured as to become synonymous with their era. Since 2000, Silverstein has kept its roots firmly planted in the terrain of post- hardcore. Sixteen years later, the genre is impossible to talk about without mentioning this seminal group.

Well over a decade of performances, of writing, and recording has afforded the group time to evolve and push forward, and Silverstein have taken the whole scene on this ride with them. Their latest Acoustic EP, hosts acoustic versions of two tracks from Dead Reflection. The band describes the release as, “We love Dead Reflection so much and didn’t want to do some half baked, phoned in acoustic versions. So we actually got Derek Hoffman back at the helm and spent the time to really honour these songs and make truly special versions of them. It’s not easy to take a screaming-heavy hardcore part and turn it into a reflective emotional part that your Mom would be into, but we love that challenge. It’s cool to see a song that’s only ever been thought of one way in a completely different light.”

As they’ve done so many times in the past, Silverstein are hard at work in the studio and on the road this year. Their shows continue to fill rooms with energy and life, and their records continue to reach eager ears. Their music continues to marry aggression and melody in a way that only Silverstein seems able to. And their dedication to their craft is more evident than ever before. Sixteen years and their outlook hasn’t changed: more days on the road, more songs, more work, more fans, more music, more friends. The numbers grow with everything they touch.
