Silent Planet have released a new single/video, “Share the Body”, which you can stream below. “This song is a tribute to the many people I’ve met who struggle with opioid addiction,” frontman and lyricist Garret Russell explains. “I hope it can speak into the past trauma or present reality of addicted persons, and push them to get help before their need takes everything.” “Share the Body” is the latest single, following “Vanity of Sleep” and “Northern Fires”, from Silent Planet’s upcoming album When the End Began, due out 11/2/18 via Solid State Records.
Silent Planet’s new single “Northern Fires (Guernica)” is already one of the most praised songs in the metalcore band’s repertoire to date, racking up almost 200,000 Spotify streams in just under a month. While that’s not a cut and dry indication of a band’s overall success, it does signify the band’s ascension as a vital cog in honest and forward-thinking heavy music.
While on tour with My Epic and Comrades, Erra vocalist JT Cavey joined the band to perform their new single. Perhaps we can get an Erra/Silent Planet co-headlining tour in the near future? Here’s hoping – they’re two of the best in the game right now.
This past Friday, Silent Planet brought an incredibly cathartic musical experience to a packed audience at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, California. With direct support from Strawberry Girls and Night Verses, the diverse lineup put on a show spanning from metalcore to post-rock to progressive, with the consistent through-line being maximum emotional impact. TNF’s own Deniz Davenport was at the show capturing every moment, and we’re thrilled to share her excellent photos.

Thousand Below opened up the show. Originating from San Diego, CA this is only the band’s second tour. Playing songs such as “Never Here” and “Tradition” off of their recently released album The Love You Let Too Close. The band warmed up the crowd for the acts to follow.
