Listen to Silverstein’s new single ‘Lost Positives’

With a month left until the release of their ninth studio album and a couple of days before the 2017 Vans Warped tour will begin, Silverstein has unleashed a brand new song. On Thursday (June 15), the Canadian band headed over to Alternative Press to debut their second single off Dead Reflection, “Lost Positive.” During the song’s premiere, frontman Shane Told and guitarist Paul Marc Rousseau talked to the publication about the new song which Told admitted was one of his favorites of all time and while Rousseau said was the first song he wrote for the album.

“It’s also my favorite song on the record for a number of reasons. I like that it’s a bit different from what we’ve done in the past; it’s not something we’ve done much of before, and melodically it’s different,” Told begins. “Rhythmically, the beat in the chorus is one we’ve not used so much, but it still has a hard-hitting riff, and some interesting verses.”

“It was the first song I wrote for the album, and I wrote it with Steve Brodsky of Cave In and Mutoid Man,” reveals Rousseau. “In its original form, it was wild and very different — it was startling to everybody. If you write a really different song late in the process, it’s less jarring, but for it to be the first one, it was like, ‘Oh my God — what record are we about to make?'”

But if you’re expecting the Dead Reflection to be a straight up hardcore record, then this might not be for you. According to Told, this album is all about diverse sounds with some tunes leaning on the pop-punk side of the spectrum while others may be on the heavy side of things.

“So with this record, yes, there’s a lot of diversity, but all our records have that, just maybe this one has it even more so. [You mention] ‘The Afterglow’ being super-poppy, and it’s basically a pop-punk song! And there are songs like ‘Last Looks’ which are very heavy; so there’s a lot of diversity.” To read the full interview with Told and Rousseau, head on over to Alternative Presshere while “Lost Positive” can be streamed above.

In support of Dead Reflection, Silverstein will be heading out on Warped Tour for the complete trek. After a month or so off, they will once again hit the road, but this time in Europe. Silverstein’s complete itinerary for the summer and fall can be seen below.
