Silverstein Releases New Album 'Misery Made Me'

Filled with moments of relentless energy throwing back to their punk and hardcore roots to visionary moments of modern heavy, Silverstein's 10th studio album Misery Made Me fastens their status as torchbearers of the scene on all fronts.

It's both intriguing and inspiring that a band - who could have merely rested on the impressive legacy they've already cemented - would continue to dig deep and find the inspiration to reach people in meaningful new ways.

Few bands in their 22nd year could claim to be in 'just getting started' mode as much as punk stalwarts Silverstein. On Misery Made Me, they find themselves springboarding off the heights they've reached over the past handful of years. "For the first time in our career, we truly put it all out there. We went into this with no rules and no preconceived notions of what Silverstein is or what it could be. We somehow wrote the heaviest, saddest, catchiest, and most emotional songs in 22 years of being a band ... all on the same album," tells vocalist Shane Told.

Ironically, amid all the positivity and connectivity injected into the creation of Misery Made Me, there comes a dark set of themes underpinning the album, as its title might suggest. The album is a depiction of Silverstein - and world at large's - collective turmoil, frustration, and anxiety.

Ultimately, Misery Made Me finds the band trying to navigate the ever-worsening challenges of our modern world - angst, doomscrolling, and disassociation. It's a record that is a product of the moment in time in which it was created yet doesn't feel like it will date itself anytime soon, as many of its topics of loneliness, anxiety and isolation are eternal human struggles.

Misery Made Me is a campaign hinged on Silverstein's reflection and gratitude for their roots, their honoring of their earliest fans, and their staunch desire to explore forward-thinking and adventurous ways to connect with new ones. The album, produced by Sam Guaiana, is out now via UNFD on CD, vinyl and digital formats.

Silverstein have announced a North American Summer co-headlining tour with The Amity Affliction. Highlights include LA's The Wiltern, Chicago's Concord Music Hall, Seattle, Texas, Nashville and more.
