Silverstein singer/songwriter Shane Told tells Time Off magazine the band is focused on redeeming emo. “When we first started the band, we set out to start an emo band,” Told said. “Mind you, this was six years ago, before the term emo had been bastardised by Dashboard Confessional, The Ataris and New Found Glory. They have nothing in common with the kinds of emo bands we grew up trying to emulate, like the Get Up Kids and Cross Ring. So now when we say we’re an emo band, and people compare us to Dashboard Confessional, it’s kinda fu**ed up – but at the same time we know who the real evil bands are.”
