Recently our photojournalist Savannah Rowley attended The Get Free Tour in Orlando, FL featuring bands Silverstein, Tonight Alive, Broadside and Picturesque. Each band brought amazing energy to the stage that kept the crowd rowdy and full of energy.
First up was the band Picturesque originating from Lexington, KY. Led by vocalist Kyle Hollis, the band started off the night with some post-hardcore jams such as “Waiting” and “Speak Softly.” Their most recent record, Back To Beautiful, was released on Equal Vision Records in 2017.
Fifteen plus years into the band’s career, post-hardcore veterans Silverstein just aren’t letting up at all, both in relative heaviness as well as general quality. While bands they’ve toured with are either not as relevant or just aren’t around anymore, the quality of even Silverstein’s recent discography is something to truly behold. Their new album Dead Reflection carries on that tradition, being both punchy and pensive, usually simultaneously.
We talked to Silverstein vocalist Shane Told about the band’s new album, their anniversary tour for Discovering The Waterfront, and even his podcast, Lead Singer Syndrome (a recent episode with Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed, you can find below). Check it out.
With the Vans Warped Tour just barely halfway over, the summer tour has already seen its share of hilarity, controversy, and excitement (Knocked Loose commanding some massive crowds? Yes). SIlverstein and Beartooth in particular have been doing some pretty crazy things this summer, including a…Silvertooth sighting! No, it’s not a mythical beast from the Dark Ages – it’s the famed Beartooth and Silverstein combination that seriously exists. Check out the whole video below, it’s pretty awesome.
Silverstein are nothing if not consistent. Going on their 8th full-length (Dead Reflection, out next Friday), the band has never released a record that was offensively bad. In fact, they seem to have gotten better with age. Averaging an album every two years, Silverstein never seem to go away.
The band, who are on Warped Tour all summer (for the millionth time), have released another single in the form of “Whiplash”, and it’s (great) business as usual for the band. Stream the song below!
