Silent Planet announce new album, premiere video
Official press release: Progressive metalcore unit, Silent Planet, have unveiled a brand new song and video. "Panic Room" is an epic, emotional and dark sonic journey through the mind of a soldier returning home with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The video reflects this struggle and is a intense interpretation of the outer life and inner life of this veteran. As vocalist Garrett Russell says, "'Panic Room' examines the inner reality of the soldier after suffering instances of violence, hierarchy, and resulting cognitive dissonance. The song was inspired by a close friend of the band who shared his story with me while we were in studio working on this record. The song attempts to examine with a greater culture of war, held aloft by politicians who patronize soldiers as talking points while cutting bills that could provide soldiers with mental health services and entering into needless, preventable armed conflict. Panic Room tells the story of one veteran who attempts to retain his sense of humanity while being suspicious of his role as a cog in the history's strongest war machine." Watch the official video for "Panic Room" here:
With the release of this video also comes news of a July 1 release date for Silent Planet's new album Everything Was Sound via Solid State Records. Recorded by Will Putney (Northlane, Miss May I) the album promises to be even headier and diverse than 2014's heralded The Night God Slept album.
