Canada’s post-hardcore heavyweights,Silversteinhave released acoustic renditions of their songs“The Afterglow“and“Aquamarine”. A physical 7″ version of the stripped down and beautifully stark songs is available for purchasehere. The original versions of both of these tracks appear on the band’s latest album“Dead Reflection”, out onRise Records.
“We loveDead Reflectionso much and didn’t want to do some half-baked, phoned-in acoustic versions,”said singerShane Told.“So we actually gotDerek Hoffman back at the helm and spent the time to really honor these songs and make truly special versions of them.”
He continued,“It’s not easy to take a screaming heavy hardcore part and turn it into a reflective emotional part that your Mom would be into — but we love that challenge. It’s cool to see a song that’s only ever been thought of one way in a completely different light.”
