With their new album A Beautiful Place To Drown due to drop in a month, Silverstein are lifting the lid on the record’s blistering opener ‘Bad Habits’alongside a stunning music video today.
Guitarist Paul Marc Rousseau explains the song’s themes saying: “This record largely deals with the feeling of defeat that can come from trying to overcome your demons, but ‘Bad Habits’ turns that upside down. It’s resigned rather than aspirational. ‘Bad Habits’ is a banger that takes place in that sliver of daylight between recognition and regret. After action, but before reaction. For these three minutes, we’re embracing the devil on our collective shoulder.”
Vocalist Shane Told adds, “When we finished putting together ‘Bad Habits’ I knew it was going to be a fan favourite. This song is action packed and just plain fun. It’s a rush of adrenaline and then Aaron (Intervals) comes in shredding and just puts it over the top.”
‘Bad Habits’ highlights Silverstein’s signature blend of aggression and melody, and includes a mind-melting guitar solo from Intervals’ Aaron Marshall. The contribution on ‘Bad Habits‘ is one of the many stellar guest spots on the album, with appearances from Underoath’s Aaron Gillespie, Beartooth’s Caleb Shomo, Simple Plan’s Pierre Bouvier, and perhaps most surprisingly, hip hop fireband Princess Nokia all indicating the band’s wide-reaching impact and their ability to reach listeners in all worlds of music.
