Silverstein – Whiplash // Video

Silverstein legen mit „Whiplash“ eine weitere Single samt Musikvideo aus ihrem aktuellen Studioalbum „Dead Reflection“ (zur Review) vor.  Die kanadische Post-Hardcore-Truppe zeigt sich dabei musikalisch von ihrer besten Seite. Ein treibender Trommelbeat paart sich mit harten Gitarrenriffs und dem melodiösen Gesang von Frontmann Shane Told. Fantastisch!

Whiplash // Text:

„Late night. I try to focus on the blurred lights, neon signs and my hands are freezing. Snow blind with my head down with the wind in my eyes. This icy road stares back. Thereʼs only so much hope when every place I go reminds me Iʼll never get back home. But thereʼs no time. I look up into headlights. The screeching tires seem to call my name. I deserve this. Itʼs all true. Iʼm burning up. Everything you said hit me like a car wreck. Face down on the cold ground, slipping away as the past comes back. Iʼm face down on the cold ground, slipping away as it fades to black. Whiplash. A thousand thoughts converge on impact, a cry for help. But thereʼs no one left and the silence wins again. Iʼm barely breathing as they call my name. In the pouring rain I never felt like that. You said you felt the same. Canʼt spend another day here. I keep looking back as youʼre looking away. Iʼm no better than bad luck, walk away while you can. Turn the page then nail the book shut. Just walk away while you can.“
