The album arrives exactly one year to the day the band survived a horrific tour van accident in Wyoming.
Following a succession of effective, emotive singles in “Antimatter” and “Signal”, metalcore amalgam Silent Planet have announced plans to release their next full length, Superbloom, later this fall. The album arrives November 3rd via Solid State Records and marks a pivotal anniversary for the band.
A year prior, Silent Planet was trekking through a Wyoming snowstorm and endured a horrific accident that saw their tour van flipped over. While all the members of the band survived, frontman Garrett Russell was hospitalized with a fractured back and significant head wounds.
“The majority of us were awake when we felt the van start to slide,” Russell recalled. “We had some time to come to grips with the fact we were about to go down and have a close brush with death. Afterwards, we talked about what to do with the band. We went back into the record with an increased willingness to take risks. It bolstered our confidence to try new things. When the accident happened, it did something to my head, and it fed into the album.”
The confirmation marks the follow-up to the band’s lauded 2021 effort Iridescent, anchored by the success of the track, “Trilogy” – a single that has gone on to become a instant classic and amass more than 5 million streams since it’s debut.
Coupled with the news of the next album, Silent Planet has continued their winning streak with a third preview of the album in “Collider”. Paired with a compelling, cinematic visual, the track finds the band pushing their creative boundaries and expanding their horizons as veteran songwriters.
Silent Planet architect Garrett Russell said of the new single, “It’s about what comes out of our lives when the people we trust and hold closest are the ones who can hurt or betray us the worst. We don’t have to run from the pain or be afraid. The dark gives us the energy to make something beautiful. The song is about alchemizing the darkness and transforming its negative properties.”
Superbloom arrives November 3rd via Solid State Records. The album is available for pre-order – HERE
Ahead of the arrival of Superbloom, Silent Planet will return to the road – asserting their dedication to their craft. The band will join Dayseeker for September tour that will also include a handful of headlining plays. A full list of dates and cities can be found below.
