No questions, just a "thank you" for releasing so many quality albums. See you in NYC. If you'd play your Lifetime cover, I'd be grateful. :)
Thank YOU! We love playing NYC and are stoked for the show!

Is there a specific reason why you chose to name a title track on the new record "Arrivals and departures"? what was the story behind the the album title getting new life basically?
We felt that the words "Arrivals" & "Departures" fit the themes of the songs, as one is about the start of a relationship and the other about the end. We also felt it was cool to reference our previous album title as a way to tie in the concept that the tracks on Side A line up with the tracks on Side B.

Really like the idea of having a concept album with parallel tracks. What is everyone's personal favorite song from the record? By the way, really love the album!
I really like "In Silent Seas We Drown" personally.
It's really heavy and fun to play, yet I think the bridge is super catchy and I got it stuck in my head a lot when we first finished the record.

What are your plans after your current tour?

Also, TIHTWS is probably my favorite Silverstein release. Great job!
More touring! We are currently set to head to Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Australia in the spring!

The show you guys played in Minnesota was so kickass! I went with my best friend for a pre-birthday celebration and he purchased the new album on vinyl for me. Seriously the best show of my life.

I'm wondering about what exactly comes in the vinyl boxset. I know you guys have said there's one record that tells a story, with "This is How" one side and "The Wind Shifts" on the other, but all the other details are so vague! Can you give any more specific information?
it comes with 8 7"s!
6 of them will have the corresponding song from each side and the others will have "This Is How" and "The Wind Shifts" and a blank...we will let you figure out what to do with those. Anyone have a DJ turntable setup?!

Billy, I just wanna ask if you're every gonna grow that sweet mustache again?
I have it right now!....just with a bunch of hair on the rest of my face making an epic beard.
Josh has been holding down the 'stache for the last few months though and I think it suits him much better!

How Is Hopeless different from Other Labels? and will there Be any tours lined up with hopless bands? The Wonder years...Or THE STORY SO FAR (NOT a hopeless band but still would be sick)
We love The Wonder Years and have been trying to tour with them for a while!
I actually saw The Story So Far play with TWY in Toronto and was blown away! We'd love to tour with them too!

RECORD STORES OR ITUNES STORE?
RECORD STORES!
I grew up going to a handful of record stores to buy all of my music and was turned on to some of my favourite bands on suggestions from the clerks working the store. I hope that is something that will never die

why not release a straight foward punk record!?!?!
Short Songs was kind of our attempt to do that, but we have so many influences that we always try to cover, it's hard to just stick to one genre
