SILVERSTEIN are from Burlington, Ontario-Canada & formed in 2000.
Their band name is a reference to the famous children’s author: Shel Silverstein, whom the band had admired and read the stories of as children.
According to a press release, the band says of the track:
“I don’t know how to feel anything but rage anymore. The rich are getting richer and poor are getting poorer. Wages are stagnant, tuition costs are rising, jobs are being automated [or] off-shored [and] costs of a home are laughable in most major cities. The walls feel like they’re closing in, and escape is starting to feel impossible. Two-faced leaders and greedy elected officials line their pockets while stripping funding for the programs that we actually need. What are we supposed to do now? Looking out for one another on a community level is good, but changing a crooked system is better.”
Silverstein also plan to finish their 20th Anniversary Tour later this year & have a back-to-back shows on Friday, November 19th at the Belasco Theater in Hollywood & Saturday, November 20th at House of Blues in Anaheim.
