Silent Planet announce new LP ‘SUPERBLOOM,’ share “Collider” (pre-order exclusive aqua vinyl)

California metalcore band Silent Planet have announced a new album, SUPERBLOOM, due out November 3 via Solid State Records. The date was deliberately chosen, marking the anniversary of their 2022 van accident. Vocalist Garrett Russell says, “The majority of us were awake when we felt the van start to slide. We had some time to come to grips with the fact we were about to go down and have a close brush with death. Afterwards, we talked about what to do with the band. We went back into the record with an increased willingness to take risks. It bolstered our confidence to try new things. When the accident happened, it did something to my head, and it fed into the album.”

“A SUPERBLOOM is this strange moment where brilliant fauna spring forth unexpectedly and bring forth such an array of colors, it almost feels alien in origin,” Garrett adds. “It only lasts for a couple of weeks before it’s gone. While we were recording, the SUPERBLOOM was happening. For me, the record is getting in touch with the other side and watching the strange and paranormal emerge from the mundane and profane, hence the title.”

We have an exclusive variant of Superbloom, pressed to aqua blue vinyl and limited to 300 copies. Pick up yours HERE while they last. Here’s a mockup of the vinyl:

Silent Planet have also shared a new single, “Collider,” and you can watch the accompanying video below. “Take all the darkness. All the vitriol, the greed and the vanity; lay it again as dust,” Garrett says. “Everything can be alchemized. This song is called ‘Collider.’ It’s about what comes out of our lives when the people we trust and hold closest are the ones who can hurt or betray us the worst. We don’t have to run from the pain or be afraid. The dark gives us the energy to make something beautiful. The song is about alchemizing the darkness and transforming its negative properties.”

Silent Planet will be on tour through late September, including headlining shows and dates supporting Dayseeker with Moxy The Band. The run with Dayseeker includes an Asbury Park show on September 9 at Asbury Lanes. See all dates below.
