While the rest of the industry settles down for the holiday, Toronto-based post-hardcore veterans SILVERSTEIN are not only preparing for the release of SHORT SONGS on February 7, 2012, they’re also getting their tour shoes laced up and ready to run. Preparing for a national tour supporting August Burns Red (additional support from Texas In July with Letlive and I The Breather on assorted dates), the eight week US and Canadian trek kicks off on January 13th at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ and circles around North America, wrapping up in Philadelphia at the TLA on March 3rd.

Short Songs is the follow-up to their critically acclaimed fifth studio album Rescue, which debuted at #37 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart. Produced by John Valeriote, who produced both Rescue and the Transitions EP, the two-sided release consists of 22 tracks comprised of brand new originals and seminal punk covers – all of which are under 90 seconds. Some of the covers include “Coffee Mug” (originally by Descendents), “Destination: Blood!” (Orchid), “Scenes From Parisian Life” (The Promise Ring), and “The Ballad of Wilhelm Fink” (Green Day). Responding to a thread on, the band had some fun and re-recorded NOFX’sIt’s My Job To Keep Punk Rock Elite” and changing the lyrics to reflect their reply to some of the comments on the post. The result was a tongue-in-cheek non-album track exclusively streamed at titled “It’s Your Job To Keep Punk News Elite.”

Silverstein is Shane Told (Vocals / Guitar), Neil Boshart (Guitar), Josh Bradford (Guitar), Billy Hamilton (Bass), and Paul Koehler (Drums). Silverstein will be releasing Short Songs via Hopeless Records on February 7, 2012 and touring extensively throughout North America and Europe in 2012.
