This year Silverstein are celebrating their 20th anniversary, a rare milestone for any band but even more impressive for one that's been as consistently active, influential, and crowd-pleasing as the Ontario-based post-hardcore legends. The band are celebrating all year long with a packed touring schedule and the release of their ninth studio album, 'A Beautiful Place To Drown,' due out March 6th from UNFD. It's an album that fittingly encapsulates the best of Silverstein while pushing their sound into daring new territory. The band have now shared the record's blistering opener "Bad Habits" which highlights Silverstein's signature blend of aggression and melody along with a mind-melting guitar solo from Intervals' Aaron Marshall.
Silverstein guitarist Paul Marc Rousseau explained the song's themes saying, "This record largely deals with the feeling of defeat that can come from trying to overcome your demons, but 'Bad Habits' turns that upside down. It’s resigned rather than aspirational. 'Bad Habits' is a banger that takes place in that sliver of daylight between recognition and regret. After action, but before reaction. For these three minutes, we’re embracing the devil on our collective shoulder."
Vocalist Shane Told adds, "When we finished putting together 'Bad Habits' I knew it was going to be a fan favorite. This song is action packed and just plain fun. It’s a rush of adrenaline and then Aaron from Intervals comes in shredding and just puts it over the top."
