It’s been a hot minute since we last heard new material from Silverstein (they dropped ‘Bankrupt‘ back in April) but now they’re here again to remind us why they’re still at the top of their game!
‘It’s Over‘ sees the band hone in on their melodic side with frontman Shane Told‘s soothing vocal performance taking centre stage as the boys hit the stage again following two years of this pandemic which shut down the entire world. The live footage in the music video (of the band in the US) reminds us of their set at UNIFY 2020 when we thought all was lost with the rain and postponements of sets, until they got the all clear to hit the stage and everything was right in the world again… oh man, remember shows?
According to guitarist Paul Marc Rousseau:
“This song is the spiral that leads to giving up. Those anxiety packed hours when you can’t feel anything but the low, steady crescendo of panic that eventually gets so intense your fingertips lose sensation. It’s hopeless to feel but pointless to endure. I didn’t learn anything from feeling that way. I just wanted it to stop.”
The moral of the story, no matter what, don’t dwell on your mistakes and give in because you never know what’s around the corner waiting for you.
