Silverstein Helps Fundraise For Invisible Children

Silverstein rock

Silverstein checked in with their Facebook fans on Thursday (September 29), talking about their work with Invisible Children, a movement seeking to end the conflict in Uganda and stop the abduction of children for use as child soldiers. The Canadian post-hardcore band write:

We have paired up with “Invisible Children” to help fundraise for their great cause of bringing radio transmissions to remote war-torn parts of Africa. The idea is to communicate with villages to prevent attacks and educate those who are fighting for the wrong cause. Our team page is at stayclassy.org, where we encourage our fans to get educated and help this positive cause. Thanks!

Silverstein Celebrate 10 Years As A Band

VicTorV recently sat down with Silverstein to talk about what Silverstein means 10 years after it began as well as their brand new live CD/DVD called ‘Decade (Live At The El Macambo)’. “It’s crazy to think we’ve been a band for 10 years,” vocalist Shane Told said. “We’ve played over 1,200 shows and I can remember every show. I haven’t forgotten anything and I still remember us practicing in Josh’s basement when we first started. It’s a really cool milestone, to be like, ‘Yeah, 10 years. It’s totally nuts.” Watch the commentary via YouTube below.

Silverstein Are Loving Their Third Album ‘Arrivals & Departures’

Silverstein vocalist Shane Told was putting the full-on pitch for the Burlington, Ontario emo band’s third album ‘Arrivals & Departures’ in an interview with Beat magazine. “We’re all simply big fans of this new record that we’ve put out,” Told, uh, told Gav Ross. “There are a lot of songs that we feel are destined to be classic songs for us. When a record first comes out it takes a little while for people to learn the lyrics and they don’t know it as well; it always takes a while for people to warm up to it. When it first came out we played maybe two (tracks) from ‘Arrivals & Departures’ and now we play most of them. Kids yell out for them and know all the words and love ’em. I think we’re playing for about an hour each night – so 13 or 14 songs all up.”

With the disc, Told said the band followed the same formula as their first two efforts, their 2003 debut ‘When Broken Is Easily Fixed’ and its 2005 follow-up ‘Discovering the Waterfront’. “We’ve got together and written songs – what’s come out has come out,” he said. “It is put to tape and that’s what it is, you know? We don’t talk to one another and say ‘let’s make a mature record’ or ‘let’s make a super heavy or poppy record’, you know? That is never talked about. We’ve just made them all the same way so the progression has been natural. Maybe for the next one we’ll decide to be more deliberate, I don’t know at this point. We might very well set out to make a certain type of record from the start.”
