“Ultraviolet being invisible felt like the right way to describe it – to get lost in this unseeable thing. Ultraviolet light also causes physical damage to our skin, so it serves as a sort of ‘proof’ that something invisible like anxiety can hurt us.”

As for the album itself, the band’s frontman Shane Told stated:

“For the first time in our career, we truly put it all out there. We went into this with no rules and no preconceived notions of what Silverstein is or what it could be. The results are bold. We somehow wrote the heaviest, saddest, catchiest, and most emotional songs in 22 years of being a band … all on the same album.”

He continued:

“I wanted to explore the meaning of ‘Misery’ as a main theme throughout the album. Despite the mountains climbed and boulders pushed during recent years, we were confronted by the weight and misery of staying relatively in the same place for a long period of time. Finding peace in the reality of this misery became important. The record is about the acceptance of a new reality and adapting to it.”

Recorded at Jukasa Studios in Ohsweken, Ontario with producer Sam Guaiana (Obey The Brave, LIMBS) once again behind the boards, the effort will find Silverstein joined by several guests. Among them are Comeback Kid vocalist Andrew Neufeld on “Die Alone“, while The Devil Wears Prada frontman Mike Hranica appears on “Slow Motion“.
