The American Dream
Silverstein formed in 2000 in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. Their name is a reference to Shel Silverstein who the members all admired growing up. They self-produced the two EPs before getting signed in 2002. Silverstein's first full-length album When Broken Is Easily Fixed was released the following year. Half of the tracks were songs from their previous EPs. 2005's Discovering the Waterfront marked a couple of milestones for Silverstein. It was their first album to chart on the Billboard 200 having peaked at No. 34 as well as their first radio single "Smile In Your Sleep." Silverstein released their next album Arrivals & Departures in 2007. The album peaked higher at No. 25 and produced two singles but wasn't as well-received as previous albums. 2009's A Shipwreck in The Sand, which peaked at No. 33, was received much more positively. It produced the single "Vices," which was a collaboration with Liam Cormier of Cancer Bats. Next came Rescue, which peaked at No. 38, and 2012 brought Short Songs, which included 22 tracks around 90 seconds or less. This Is How the Wind Shifts came out in 2013 and peaked at No. 59. "Stand Amid the Roar" and "Massachusettes" were the two singles produced from the album. Before releasing another album, Silverstein toured in celebration of Discovering the Waterfront's 10th anniversary. A few months later, the band released I Am Alive In Everything I Touch. Videos were released for "A Midwestern State Of Emergency" and "Milestone." Dead Reflection, released in 2017, features the singles "The Afterglow," "Retrograde" and "Ghost." Most recently, Silverstein released Redux: The First Ten Years. It contains new versions of 12 songs released on the band's first four albums.
