Silverstein @Mr. Smalls on 3/1

After spending the summer sweating it out on Warped Tour and their fall trekking through the UK and Europe, Canadian post-hardcore outfit Silverstein are showing no signs of running out of steam, embarking on The Get Free Tour in the new year, with support from Tonight Alive and Broadside.

Silverstein released their eighth full-length album Dead Reflection in July to critical acclaim. Check out their track “Ghost” here, which premiered on Sirius XM Faction.

“The element of hope has always been in our band; we want to preach positivity, it’s just that sometimes you have to go through darkness to get there. At the core, that’s what Dead Reflection is about,” said vocalist Shane Told, who also hosts the wildly popular Lead Singer Syndrome podcast.

The Get Free Tour stops at Mr. Smalls in Pittsburgh, PA on 3/1.

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 17-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. This perfect balance marks the band’s eighth full-length, Dead Reflection—an album that proves Silverstein still has plenty of fire left.

Silverstein have released an album every odd year since their 2003 debut, When Broken Is Easily Fixed, and that drive is paramount to why the band remains one of post-hardcore’s most relevant and influential acts. This consistency shows an uncommonly clear path of growth from album to album as the band honed the aggressive-to-melodic contrast that became their signature sound. Dead Reflection marks a sharp jump in that evolution: the band pushed themselves harder than ever before, resulting in an album the takes all of Silverstein’s strengths—pummeling riffs, explosive dynamic shifts, and huge, anthemic choruses—and ramps up the intensity. Guitarist Paul Marc Rousseau co-produced Dead Reflection with Derek Hoffman, leading to a level of collaboration with which band had never experimented before. After years of creating and touring, the members of Silverstein have each become accomplished musicians in their own right while still summoning the same unbridled ferocity that marked the band’s early days, and it’s this fusion that makes Dead Reflection feel so vital.

Vocalist Shane Told has always been a master of taking his darkest times and channeling them into compelling songwriting, and Dead Reflection ups the ante as the singer documents his most troubled year. The tumultuous end of a long relationship sent Told into a self-destructive spiral that left him isolated and forced to confront who he truly was with everything stripped away. All of the positivity that had previously come so easily suddenly felt put-on, like a costume that never quite fit, and as the people closest to him were all entering new phases of life with new responsibilities, the singer found himself feeling more alone and nihilistic than ever. In the end it was Silverstein, the one constant in Told’s life, that brought him back from the brink. With the prospect of writing a new album on the horizon, he thew himself into the process, fully exploring the bleak narrative he was living out. Dead Reflection became a sort of “What-if?” version of Told’s life, a cautionary tale urging listeners to find out what really matters and challenge their own masks before it’s too late. Writing proved to be as cathartic as it was harrowing, and slowly Told began to feel the weight of the past year lifting; Silverstein had been there for him just when he needed it most.

Dead Reflection is an album that couldn’t exist without everything that’s come before it, a culmination not just of Silverstein’s sonic growth, but also the personal journeys entangled in the band’s career. Longevity was never the objective, but that drive to deliver their absolute best, no matter what the cost, is exactly why the band remains at the top of their game after almost two decades. For Silverstein there is no settling, no stopping, and they give nothing less than everything.

The Devil Wears Prada Joins Anthrax, Killswitch Engage Tour/ Pittsburgh Date April 9

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA TO JOIN ANTHRAX AND KILLSWITCH ENGAGE
ON SPRING NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
L-R:  Kyle Sipress, Andy Trick, Mike Hranica, Jeremy Depoyster

LOS ANGELES, CA – (Thursday, January 5, 2017) — The Devil Wears Prada will hit the road early in the New Year with a slot on what will be one of the heaviest tours of 2017 – a 27-date North American tour as special support to co-headliners Anthrax and Killswitch Engage.  The trek, presented by SiriusXM, kicks off at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ on March 29 and will zig-zag the continent, culminating in Boston on May 7.  Tickets are on sale now; log onto http://www.tdwpband.com/tour for purchasing info.
This tour won’t be the first time that TDWP – Mike Hranica (vocals), Jeremy DePoyster (rhythm guitar, vocals), Andy Trick (bass), and Kyle Sipress (lead guitar) – have crossed paths with either band.  Prada toured the U.S. with KsE in 2010, and played with Anthrax on the 2012 Mayhem tour.  Additionally, Adam D., KsE’s lead guitarist, produced two of Prada’s albums – Dead Throne (2011) and 8:18 (2013).
“This tour will be a real treat,” said Prada’s Hranica.  “We have an awesome relationship with Adam, he’s one of the craziest, most fun dudes we know, and when it comes to thrash and metal, you don’t get much bigger names than Anthrax and Killswitch.”
The Devil Wears Prada will be putting together a special set for this tour.  “I love the idea of going to a show and seeing bands whose music is in the same ballpark, but still different from each others’,” Hranica added.  “We have our own personal style on the side of metal, so we’ll do some of our dark, heavy, noisey songs, but probably stay away from interludes inbetween.  We’ll have our own footprint on stage each night.”
These dates will be in support of Prada’s new and sixth full-lenth album, the 11-track, critically-acclaimed Transit Blues (Rise Records).  Produced by Dan Korneff (Pierce The Veil, Motionless in White), Transit Blues examines themes of transition, separation and the toll that constant touring can have on one’s personal life.  Click here to check out the album’s first music video for the song “To The Key Of Evergreen,” inspired by Hranica’s all-time favorite love story, Vladimir Nabokov’s “Lolita.”

Mixing raucous comedy with borderline-horrific theatrics, the only thing more petrifying than impending health problems resulting from years of overeating is a MAC SABBATH show. Show attendees should be prepared to partake in the fun – MAC SABBATH puts on a theatrical, multimedia stage show – complete with a smoking grill, laser-eyed clowns, bouncing burgers and many more magical surprises… basically anything and everything an unwary show-goer could ever want in their wildest dreams.
“… one of the most interesting bands to come around in a long, long time. They have Dead Kennedys’ outrageous sense of humor mixed with total irreverence and ornate style on top of a solid, engaging performance (even if the crowd is reluctant to respond). So while this whole thing was probably thought up after eating too many pot brownies, it is one of the most brilliant ideas in a long time.”­
Troy Farah, Phoenix New Times
 
“This is not a drill. Be it exchanging Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid” for a “Pair-a-buns” or “Iron Man” for a “Frying Pan,” these food-focused musical dweebs are cooking up something hot ‘n’ ready just for you.”Alicia Lutes, MTV.com
 
“The most impressive-and terrifying-thing about Mac Sabbath is that they’re actually really good. Ronald channels his inner Ozzy onstage, from the manic jumping to the frantic hand waving…” Bryan Rolli, Paste Magazine
 
“Even if the songs are dripping with onions and extra cheese, Mac Sabbath put on one righteous stage show, complete with smoke machines, gritty power chords, and endless head-banging.”Chris Coplan, ConsequenceofSound.net
 
Named by Buzzfeed as one of the “13 Metal Bands You Didn’t Know How to React To”

THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN Announce US Tour Dates

From DEP Facebook:

The end is near party peoplllllllllllle. But not yet… not yet. So we had all of the fun getting up close and personal with some of you in the tiny saunas… I mean venues… that we played over the last couple of weeks. There was no better way we could’ve chosen to start the beginning of the end than by getting back in the van and getting down to the slimy nitty gritty with some of y’all in some of our favorite cities. Thanks to everyone who came out and screamed and sweat and bled with us and checked their fucks at the door. So invigorating to play such feral explosive small shows after being dormant for a while. Sad to know they will be our last shows in venues that small and intimate but very meaningful to say the least. Full body chills/goosebumps every night to see you all go into a frenzy and scream along to the end of Limerent Death so soon after we released it. So, because we’re kinda hooked on this whole intimate show thing now, we’re doing another in the UK this week at Old Blue Last. This place holds 150 people….tickets go on sale today at 3pm.

GHOUL: Creepsylvanian Hooligans Stream Dungeon Bastards At MetalSucks; Record To Infect The Masses This Friday Via Tankcrimes

This Friday, Tankcrimes will infect the masses with the sonic mutations of Dungeon Bastards, the new full-length from the masked madmen in GHOUL. Captured and mixed by Scott Evans (Kowloon Walled City) at Antisleep Studios in Oakland, and mastered by Dan Randall (Impaled, Annihilation Time, Fucked Up, Necrot) at Mammoth Sound in San Francisco, Dungeon Bastards wields eleven hemorrhage-inducing tracks of the band’s now-patented Creepsylvanian splatterthrash.
In advance of its release, today the ghouligans at MetalSucks are streaming the record in full noting, “Dungeon Bastards isn’t just GHOUL‘s finest album to date – it’s one of 2016’s strongest albums to date, a pipe bomb hybrid of thrash, death metal, and hardcore that is effortlessly aggro andfun. Dungeon Bastards is the kind of record that will have you looking cockeyed at anyone who claims not to like it.”
Hear Dungeon Bastards, courtesy of MetalSucks, at THIS LOCATION.

Utters Mass Movement of GHOUL’s latest masterwork, “Infused with the savage technicality of thrash behemoths and legendary crossover beasts such as Blind Illusion and Attitude, the energy and power of early Death and Sodom and the morbid humours of GWAR, GHOUL‘s lifelong mission has taken another crucial step toward world domination. Thrashing time is here…” In a 5/5 score Skulls ‘N’ Bones points out, “Yes, GHOUL has a humorous appearance and slant on their music, but don’t let that fool you. These guys write some seriously good metal and can back everything up with solid musicianship to boot.” Metal Reviews concurs in an 85/100 rating, “With so many gimmicks, it would seem surprising at first glance that GHOUL has continued for this long, but those gimmicks, and the not-so-secret identities of the band members, are just window dressing that covers music that can stand on its own merits. Dungeon Bastards continues GHOUL‘s policy of high quality with a blast of noise that will leave fans wishing for more than ten tracks.” Ave Noctum crowns Dungeon Bastards, “the best thing GHOUL has put out to date.” In Decibel’s For Those About To Squawk column, Waldo awards the record, “7 Fucking Pecks,” noting, “The production here is crisp and choppy and adds to the fun of this release… add in the sing-a-long choruses and you have a pretty beaking cool release.” Concludes Riot Nerd, “GHOUL‘s live antics and theatrical presentation may get kids through the door and asses in the seats (hell, it certainly got my attention), but on Dungeon Bastards they prove themselves the best of the best of the red food coloring and corn syrup set, with the deft musicianship and songwriting chops to take on anyone, masked, facepainted, or otherwise. Stalwart Creepsylvanians take heed, there’s about to be a population boom. Haters, doubters, trolls, and lurkers won’t be able to deny the ‘naked, merciless force’ of Dungeon Bastards, and GHOUL have earned every single new blood soaked fist in the air.”
