Acclaimed Canadian rock band SILVERSTEIN are thrilled to release “Misery Made Me Deluxe”, an extended release of their critically acclaimed 2022 album. “Misery Made Me Deluxe” features new versions of songs from the original record as well as new music, including recent single “Poison Pill”.
The band shares: “It’s very exciting we get to celebrate our favorite album again nearly a year later with this deluxe release. ‘Poison Pill’ and ‘Stitches’ are very special songs, and we wanted to highlight them separately from the rest of the album. They have a different texture to them that brings us back to our even deeper roots, our influence of the 90’s bands that paved the way for so many bands in our scene.
In addition, the alternate versions of ‘Don’t Wait Up’, ‘Poison Pill’ and ‘Mary’ evoke a different tone of the record as well. While recording this album we were in the middle of the pandemic, with so many uncertainties and so many conflicting emotions. This deluxe version truly embodies what this album meant to us, including the excitement of being able to perform on stage again, which is why we also included some live material as well”.
Canadian rock band Silverstein has teamed up with lifestyle brand The Pretty Cult for an exclusive collaboration. In addition to the standard vinyl and merchandise options, the collaboration includes a custom and authentic Silverstein tarot card deck, special tarot-themed merch, a custom candle, and altar cloth. The Pretty Cult owner and founder Arielle Salsa expressed her excitement about the collaboration, saying that her brand revolves around tarot, the occult, and the practice of witchcraft, making it a perfect fit for expanding on the concept of tarot-inspired art for Silverstein’s merch.
The idea for the collaboration came about when Arielle met Silverstein at their Misery Made Me album pop-up last May and noticed that they had tarot-inspired art for some of their merch. After connecting with them, Arielle saw an opportunity to expand on the concept and create a collection complete with a tarot deck, guidebook, altar cloth, and two unique Silverstein x The Pretty Cult tarot items.
To ensure authenticity, Arielle wanted to create a tarot deck that was as inclusive to the avid tarot user as it was to a beginner. As a practicing witch herself, she wanted to make sure the deck was as authentic as possible. She worked hard to create a deck and guidebook that were true to the practice of tarot, which is less about a higher power and more about being your own master and creating your own path.
Silverstein, as a band that is self-managed and unafraid to constantly push boundaries and grow over their 20+ year career, was a natural fit with the practice of tarot. Both share the common theme of being your own master and creating your own path. The collaboration also shows Silverstein’s willingness to push boundaries beyond their standard merchandise options, highlighting their commitment to creativity and innovation.
