Silverstein are celebrating their 20th anniversary with the release of their latest full-length, A Beautiful Place To Drown, which was released last month via UNFD and debuted on seven Billboard charts including #122 Top 200, #5 Rock Albums, and #3 Current Alternative. Today the post-hardcore legends have shared their new music video for “Madness” an album standout that features a charged performance from critically acclaimed rapper, Princess Nokia. The video’s technicolored aesthetics compliment the blend of pop sensibility and aggression that fuels “Madness.” It’s a perfect snapshot of Silverstein‘s uncanny ability to evolve while remaining true to their core spirit.
A Beautiful Place To Drown fittingly encapsulates the best of Silverstein while pushing their sound into daring new territory. The band may be proud torchbearers of the emo and post-hardcore scenes but appearances from artists that range from Princess Nokia to Underoath’s Aaron Gillespie, Beartooth’s Caleb Shomo, Simple Plan’s Pierre Bouvier, and more, are indicative of Silverstein‘s wide-reaching impact and their ability to reach listeners in all worlds of music. The album 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 alternative music and beyond.
