In the band’s latest effort When the End Began, frontman and lyricist Garrett Russell explores the obscure and mystical Nietzschean concept of ‘Eternal Return’ as it relates to the human experience. Haunted by recurring dreams of war, famine, and dead planets and further exacerbated by health complications and surgery, Russell was drawn to explore the concept of apocalypse in this latest batch of stories. When the End Began delves into instances of global and personal crisis – watershed moments between and within humanity – and aims to draw connection between the two.

Since their inception in 2009, Silent Planet have never looked for handouts. The band first gained prominence due to their vast array of intellectual influences, anchored by Russell’s masters degree in psychology and field experience as a mental health therapist. However, it is their remarkably intimate connection with their listeners (who they often refer to as ‘Lovers’ rather than ‘fans’) that has become their trademark in the music scene. Perhaps no single event better speaks to their grassroots base than their surprise, underdog victory in the Underground Band of the Year category at the 2017 APMA awards.

With this third full-length release, the band will establish themselves not as a mainstay in the genre, but as sonic trend-setters. Primary song architect and guitarist Mitchell Stark pushes the band into increasingly aggressive territory in this new release, accented by the distinguishably refined and progressive drumming of Alexrene Camarena. Furthermore, the album showcases a wide vocal array, thanks to the dynamic singing range of bassist Thomas Freckleton, who vacillates between anthemic choruses and contemplative verses throughout the record. In a genre fraught with cliche, Silent Planet have produced their most deliberate and cohesive effort to date.
