Ontario post-hardcore veterans Silverstein are set to offer a refreshed retrospective look at their early material, providing a new take on staples such as ‘Smashed Into Pieces’ and ‘Smile In Your Sleep’.
The band will be releasing collection of re-recordings of songs from their first four records into an album titled ‘Redux: The First Ten Years’, which will be released on April 12th 2019.
Speaking about the project, vocalist Shane Told had this to say.
“The goal was to update the recordings and make them sound the best they can—not change the songs from what has made them resonate with people for so long. You’re going to hear the clarity and dynamics in a new way, but the magic of the original songs is kept intact. It’s going to be fun for fans to crank these up and really hear the songs the way they were meant to be heard.
We chose the songs that we thought needed the most in terms of a sound update, and also which songs have spoken to our fans the most. Re-recording ‘Bleeds No More’, a song I wrote in my bedroom 17 years ago, was a very cool experience as well, as was remembering the entire ‘Discovering The Waterfront’ recording experience.”
