Post-hardcore trailblazers Silverstein release their heaviest song ever “Die Alone” featuring guest vocals from Comeback Kid’s Andrew Neufeld. “Our roots are in fast hardcore and punk, it’s a style we have touched on over the years, but with the frustration and anger I felt at the time, I wanted to take this one all the way” vocalist Shane Told reveals. “I knew the song could benefit from a second voice and thought of Andrew immediately. His signature snarl and delivery put this thing over the top.”

“Lyrically, ‘Die Alone’ discusses the power imbalance that often happens in one-sided friendships – where a toxic person controls another. It’s a classic theme, but one we have seen a lot more over the past few years with misinformation leading to tremendous pressure from people to act a certain way, or vote a certain way, or become a puppet for a negative cause.
Few bands on their 22nd lap around the scene could claim to be in ‘just getting started’ mode as much as punk stalwarts Silverstein. On Misery Made Me, they find themselves springboarding off the heights they’ve reached over the past handful of years. “For the first time in our career, we truly put it all out there. We went into this with no rules and no preconceived notions of what Silverstein is or what it could be. We somehow wrote the heaviest, saddest, catchiest, and most emotional songs in 22 years of being a band … all on the same album,” tells vocalist Shane Told.
