Silverstein Week: The Sand Will Turn To Glass & Vanity and Greed
"'The Sand Will Turn To Glass': This was another one that took almost no time to write. It's a simple 5 chord song, but I love the energy it has. It's also the shortest song we've ever written. I wasn't sure what to put in the little break part and Neil came up with that solo. I think it really adds to the song. I also used all these weird old fender guitars and amps for the intro. It has such a cool vibe. * 'Vanity and Greed': I wasn't around when the band wrote the music for this one, and when they played it for me I was really nervous about writing vocals over top of it. It was in a time signature I could barely figure out, and the chord structure was a little odd too. I even had a demo of it and I showed my friend and he was like, 'haha dude, good luck writing over that!' However, I'm pretty stoked on how it came out. The chorus is huge and the verses and super catchy. I also love how heavy some of the parts of the song are. Not to mention the key change at the end!"
