SILVERSTEIN will release its new album, “Misery Made Me”, on May 6 via UNFD on CD, vinyl and digital formats. It was produced by Sam Guaiana at Jukasa Studios in rural Ontario, Canada and features guests Andrew Neufeld of COMEBACK KID on “Die Alone”, singer/songwriter Trevor Daniel on “Cold Blood”, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA‘s Mike Hranica on “Slow Motion” and nothing,nowhere. on “Live Like This”.
Few bands on their 22nd lap around the scene could claim to be in “just getting started” mode as much as SILVERSTEIN. “Misery Made Me” finds the group spring-boarding off the heights they’ve reached over the past handful of years; their latest album (2020’s “A Beautiful Place To Drown”) adding 80 million streams to a mind-numbing career total of 500 million; it collecting a nomination for “Rock Album Of The Year” at the esteemed JUNO Awards.
Since emerging in 2008 with its debut “Severed Ties”, THE AMITY AFFLICTION has served up two ARIA gold-certified albums, “Youngbloods” (2010) and “Chasing Ghosts” (2012),and earned a platinum certification from ARIA for the seminal “Let The Ocean Take Me” (2014). “This Could Be Heartbreak” (2016) marked the band’s second consecutive Top 30 debut on the Billboard 200 and it went gold in Australia, while “Misery” (2018) elevated them to new critical heights and most recently “Everyone Loves You…One You Leave Them” (2020) showed the band returning to their heavier side and saw the group’s total stream tally surpass 460 million and counting.
THE AMITY AFFLICTION is Joel Birch (vocals),Ahren Stringer (vocals, bass),Dan Brown (lead guitar) and Jon Longobardi (drums).
