Silverstein Share New Single "Bankrupt," Plot North American Tour
Watch a fiery video for the band's latest
Published Apr 15, 2021Silverstein have returned with a new single. You can hear the Ontario outfit take aim at the rich and powerful on "Bankrupt" below.
On "Bankrupt," Silverstein put pandemic profiteers on blast, best summing up the feelings of the capitalist class with the line, "Nobody's life is worth as much as the check."
"Bankrupt" arrives alongside an explosive video helmed by Wyatt Clough, which you'll find ahead of some 20th anniversary tour dates below. At present, Silverstein's lone Canadian stop on their North American run will bring them to Toronto's Danforth Music Hall on December 12, coronavirus restrictions permitting.
"I don't know how to feel anything but rage anymore," vocalist Paul Marc shared of the single. "The rich are getting richer and poor are getting poorer. Wages are stagnant, tuition costs are rising, jobs are being automated/off-shored, 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."
Ticketing details for Silverstein's 2021 tour dates can be found here. Last year, the band shared A Beautiful Place to Drown and a second volume of their Redux release series.
