SILVERSTEIN AUSTRALIAN TOUR ANNOUNCEDThere will be no time to rest for Silverstein as they return to Australia this April to unveil their seventh studio album This Is How The Wind Shifts (Roadrunner Records).Formed in 2000 in Burlington, ON Canada, Silverstein has become as close to a household name as you can get in the post-hardcore scene.
Having played more than 1500 shows in 34 countries Silverstein have been a staple on many festivals and tours. Which have included the likes of Vans Warped Tour, Take Action!, Taste of Chaos, Rock Am Ring (Germany), Soundwave, Give it a Name (UK), and also co-founded the Scream It Like You Mean It tour in 2010. Coming off their successful Rescue tour in Australia last June Silverstein played to three out of five sold out ticketed shows, presenting to the fans tracks from both the critically acclaimed long player Rescue and ‘mini album’ Short Songs.
The new full-length This Is How The Wind Shifts will take the fans on a journey on how a person’s life can change forever with just one event. “The idea of this album is how a persons life can change forever with just one event. It is the “what if” that everyone thinks about from time to time. This album is different from a typical start to finish story concept album, or an album where all the songs have a common theme.”
Says vocalist Shane Told. After 5 full-length albums, 3 EP’s, a live album, mini album, and numerous 7” singles and collections, Silverstein have sold more than 1 million albums worldwide and have no intentions of slowing down.Just a few short weeks after the announcement of the Silverstein headline tour, main support Issues have pulled out of their support slot.The band were added to A Day To Remember’s forthcoming tour of the United States, which spans across Silverstein’s Australian dates.
Issues posted the following statement on their Facebook page, “We sincerely apologize to all our Australian fans. So sorry we had to pull out the tour there. We know you’re bummed and want to be mad at us…but we want to get over these soon, play shows, hang with all of you and hug koalas. We will find a way to make it up to you guys.”Replacing issues will be Sydney six-piece experimental/post-hardcore act, Sienna Skies.
Having recently released their new album The Constant Climb, Sienna Skies have played with the likes of Asking Alexandria, Pierce The Veil, The Amity Affliction, Underoath and Haste The Day to name but a few. The result is a band that has perfected their live show through relentless touring and secured a dedicated fan base in the process.
