Silverstein Head Out On Tour With The Amity Affliction

Canadia post-hardcore favourites are gearing up to embark on a co-headlining tour with popular Aussie heavy hitters. 

Kicking off August 25th in Phoenix, AZ, Silverstein will be visiting over 25 cities across North America. This includes stops in Los Angeles, CA, Chicago, IL, Atlanta, GA, Philadelphia, PA, Huntington, NY and more. The tour will wrap up with a hometown show in Toronto on Sunday, October 2nd.

The band released their latest studio album, Misery Made Me, this past May via UNFD. Inspired by the past two years, Misery Made Me depicts Silverstein – and the world at large’s – collective turmoil, frustration, and anxiety. This record is a product of the moment in time in which it was created yet doesn’t feel like it will date itself anytime soon. Many of its topics of loneliness, anxiety and isolation are eternal human struggles.

Silverstein has continued to build on their already-wide reaching impact. During the albums formation, they were immersing themselves in new technologies like TikTok, Discord, the metaverse and Twitch (even holding public writing sessions with fans over the latter). This confirms their unique ability to adapt and connect in all cycles of their career. 

It’s both intriguing and inspiring that a band – who could have merely rested on the impressive legacy they’ve already cemented – would continue to dig deep and find the inspiration to reach people in meaningful new ways. Misery Made Me is a campaign hinged on Silverstein’s reflection and gratitude for their roots, their honouring of their earliest fans, and their relentless desire to explore forward-thinking and adventurous ways to connect with new ones.
