The original track appears on the band's latest album 'A Beautiful Place To Drown'.



Silverstein have released a reimagining of one of their new songs. 

'Where Are You' appears on the band's latest album 'A Beautiful Place To Drown' with the original version hitting like a ton of bricks. In comparison, this new version is coated in a haunting and emotional atmosphere that completely changes the song's context. 

Check it out below:



And here's that aformentioned original:



The band have been keeping busy whilst in quarantine, as this incredible concert and documentary shows:



We also spoke to frontman Shane Told around the release of 'A Beautiful Place To Drown'. You can check out the full thing HERE, but here's a little snippet for you..

What does ‘A Beautiful Place To Drown’ as a title mean to you at this point in your career?
“A title of a record is always difficult. It’s not something that we take lightly. The title came from Paul Marc [Rousseau, guitarist] randomly finding this sign that I think was in Virginia. It’s by a beach and says ‘A Beautiful Place…To Drown’ and there’s a picture of the grim reaper on it and then the names of a bunch of people who have died there. We thought that it was fucking dark and intense but felt like the name worked with our shtick and the other titles we have had over the years. You then start thinking about what that title means more and more, and if you want to take it to a different level you can. It can mean things like climate change or mental health. Then you could think about all the strides we have made in terms of social programs such as gay marriage being legal but then now having our freedoms being taken in away in the form of something like Brexit. I think the duality between how the world can be a very beautiful place from the outside but inside you can feel like you’re drowning is pretty amazing.

“Also, if you look through our career, our titles define where we are as a band. ‘Discovering The Waterfront’ was literally about us leaving the centre of the continent and seeing the oceans. ‘Arrivals and Departures’ was about coming and going and missing out on things in our lives. Then ‘Rescue’ was about our mental health and ‘Dead Reflection’ was about how I viewed myself at that time. I think any time you put out a record, it should be a snapshot of your band’s current place that you’re in. I think that we’ve done that with most of our records over the years and it’s been an important part of us. This record is absolutely in line with that.”
