Silent Planet Unleash New Track ‘Antimatter’

California metal outfit Silent Planet have released new track ‘Antimatter’, which reflects on a harrowing incident the band experienced last year.

Today’s release is the first new Silent Planet material since the band shared ‘:Signal:’ almost a year ago to the day.

Have a listen to ‘Antimatter’ below.

The genesis of the new track is best described by singer Garrett Russell, who’s explained:

“At approximately 5am on November 03, we were westbound on the I-80 through Wyoming when our driver hit a patch of black ice, causing him to lose control of our vehicle. 

“Asleep in our bunks, we woke to the sound of our friend screaming as we felt the van start to tilt. 

“We braced together as we spun off the road, van falling on its side, then sliding down a nearby embankment until we eventually flipped onto the roof. 

“I was thrown across the vehicle and briefly knocked out, and remember waking to find my bandmates all miraculously safe inside their bunks.”

The result is a life-affirming tune derived from the experience and the subsequent struggles with hearing loss experienced by Russell, which in turn saw him question his relationship with music and find a newfound love for the Silent Planet project.

And he’ll be able to do just that on the road, with Silent Planet set to support Dayseeker along their U.S. headline tour in September.
