Silverstein are thrilled to announce Misery Made Me Deluxe, an extended release of their critically acclaimed 2022 album. Misery Made Me Deluxe features new versions of songs from the original record as well as new music, including the newly released "Poison Pill".
"Almost a year later, it's super exciting to celebrate my favorite album we've ever made with some extra songs and alternate versions," shares front man Shane Told. "'Poison Pill' was one of my favorite songs from the Misery Made Me sessions, but I wasn't sure it completely fit in with the rest of the album. But, it was so catchy, and had so many cool tones and textures we wanted to save it for this moment and really show a different emotion and feel from the rest of the album. The song inspired us to throwback to some of the music videos we grew up with, and it's one of the most fun videos we've ever done. I think it captures the feel of the music perfectly." (continue)

The show sent over some highlights from the interview. Symbolism in his artistry to honor his father [02:25]: "It's very important. He's the reason why I do what I do.

Up-and-coming grunge-punk duo Raue recently released their two song EP KARMA and to celebrate we asked Paige Kalenian to tell us about the title track. Here is the story:
Karma began with a 2 AM creative dump. I didn't intend to write a song that night; I was more exploring my guitar, trying to find new tunings to mess around with. I was testing different capo placements when I played the verse lick of Karma. I wasn't entirely convinced it was "a part" yet. It did, however, get my attention enough to record it in voice memos. My dad was actually the one who encouraged me to explore the idea further after I shared that snippet of it with him. (continue)
