Now that the New York Comic Con has left our fair metropolis, its time to get back into the serious business of music review and tour announcements. To me, there is nothing quite like the celebration of a bands anniversary on tour and with that in mind let’s check out this news from the band Silverstein.

The Press Release:
ONTARIO, CANADA – Silversteinhas announced a massive North American tour in celebration of their 20th anniversary as a band and will be performing three sets: their breakthrough album ‘Discovering the Waterfront’ in full, greatest hits and stripped-down acoustic. Special guests include Four Year Strong and I The Mighty. Tickets and VIP upgrades are now available at

“It feels absolutely incredible to be celebrating 20 years as a band!”, says vocalist Shane Told. “It feels like just yesterday we were starting this thing in Josh’s basement – singing out of Shel Silverstein books and National Geographic magazines – and here we are embarking on our biggest tour ever. Playing three sets is definitely a huge undertaking, but you only turn 20 once. I’m excited to give our fans the longest show of our career – pulling out all the stops.”

Silverstein recently released a new single called “Burn It Down” alongside the announcement that the band have signed to UNFD. The track features guest vocals from Caleb Shomo, the frontman for the Columbus, Ohio hard rock band, Beartooth. While both bands have performed live together a handful of times as ‘Silvertooth’, “Burn It Down” is the first recorded music they have collaborated on. Fans can stream “Burn It Down” at

Longevity is a rare feat for any band, especially one rooted in a foundation of punk and hardcore. Aggressive music is often fueled by youthful fire, and sustaining a career without completely abandoning that urgent sound is almost impossible for most bands.

But what’s possible for “most bands” has never been a concern for post – hardcore pioneers Silverstein. Throughout the course of their almost 20-year career, from Ontario basement shows to touring the world and selling over a million records, Silverstein has always managed to be completely comfortable in their own skin while never being afraid to challenge themselves.

Shane continues, “It’s been an amazing 20 years and this epic show is our way of saying thank you to all of our fans who jam out to us – whether they have been there since the first EP or just discovered us last month. We have the best fans in the world. Their endless support has been the reason we have been able to do this constantly for the last 20 years – to give back with this tour is the least we can do.”

Silverstein are currently in the studio recording their ninth studio album. The band is composed of Shane Told, Paul Koehler, Billy Hamilton, Paul Marc Rousseau and Josh Bradford.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told I’ve never actually witnessed Silverstein in action on the stage nor ever really followed them over the years. I guess it happens every now and again based on how many bands are actually out there. I’m going to do my best to be on point for the bands NYC show to join in on the celebration.
