Silver Cave just released a brand new single called "I Did My Best", the final track from their "Ill-Equipped" EP, and to celebrate we asked Trent Rowland to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

I have wrestled with the idea since I was a boy. It was a cruel lesson that I had to learn, but sometimes you do your very best and it isn't enough. I feel as though my generation was raised with the idea that if you do your best, everything will always work out. However, I was bitterly disappointed that that was not always the case.

That is what I wrote I Did My Best about. In it, I try to reconcile that feeling and bring about hope in some form. For me, I find that while we may not always be successful, we can take solace in the attempt. The desires in our hearts and our willingness to try to make them a reality define who we are more than our successes. That really is all that we are.

I Did My Best is a highly emotional song for me and the emotional peak of the Ill-Equipped EP. The collection as a whole has been filled with some hopeless or dark material, but, as always, I hope that those of you listening can glean some hope from it. Thank you for listening! While this release may be complete, Silver Cave will return sooner than you think!

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen and watch for yourself below
