On Wednesday (Jan. 8), Silverstein revealed plans to unleash their tenth studio album later this year. Titled A Beautiful Place to Drown, the new set of tunes is due out on March 6 through independent record label UNFD. Pre-orders for the record are currently available for purchase here.
Taking to social media (like everyone does nowadays), the Canadian group made the official announcement.
“We are proud to announce our new album, ‘A Beautiful Place to Drown’ available on March 6 via UNFD (you can pre-order now),” the band posted.
The post continues: “We poured every ounce of energy and emotion into this body of work and truly believe it’s our best yet.”
To coincide with the new album announcement, the quintet also debuted the album’s lead single, “Infinite.” The barely three-minute track features Underoath/the Almost’s Aaron Gillespie.

Silverstein’s last studio album was 2017’s Dead Reflection. Last February, the five-piece released a retrospective album titled Redux: The First Ten Years. The compilation featured newly-recorded versions of select songs from their first four studio albums (When Broken is Easily Fixed, Discovering the Waterfront, Arrivals & Departures, and A Shipwreck in the Sand).
Silverstein also surprised fans by releasing a single titled “Burn it Down” last summer featuring Beartooth’s Caleb Shomo.
Later this year, the group will embark on their massive 20th-anniversary tour. The 33-stop outing begins on Feb. 28 at the London Music Hall in London, Ontario, and concludes a month and a half later on April 11 at the Danforth in Toronto.
