Silverstein have released their first new music of 2021, and it's quite the statement piece.
'Bankrupt' is the song and was penned during some furious lockdown sessions, fueled by the fire of the world shutting down and watching the powerful become even more powerful, and the result is an arena-ready post-hardcore anthem of the highest calibre.
Harsh, heavy and hostile in all the right ways, it shows off the band at their most brutal and bold and demonstrates how despite being 20 years into their journey they are far from slowing down.
Guitarist Paul Marc had this to say about the track's themes:
“I don’t know how to feel anything but rage anymore. The rich are getting richer and poor are getting poorer. Wages are stagnant, tuition costs are rising, jobs are being automated/off-shored, costs of a home are laughable in most major cities. The walls feel like they’re closing in and escape is starting to feel impossible. Two-faced leaders and greedy elected officials line their pockets while stripping funding for the programs that we actually need. What are we supposed to do now? Looking out for one another on a community level is good, but changing a crooked system is better.”

It follows on the release of their full-length 'A Beautiful Place To Drown' last year.
