Silent Planet have announced their new album SUPERBLOOM out November 3rd via Solid State Records. As a preview, they have also shared the video for their new single “Collider.”
The upcoming album holds a lot of meaning for the group as it arrives exactly one year after they were involved in a terrible van accident that all four members luckily walked away from. The horrific event had an impact on the recording sessions for SUPERBLOOM.
The album was even recorded during an actual superbloom, an experience that frontman Garrett Russell describes as a “strange moment where brilliant fauna spring forth unexpectedly and bring forth such an array of colors, it almost feels alien in origin.”
He goes on to explain the story of the record:
“I grew up in Northern California. There’s a strip of the state known as Humboldt County, but it’s called the ‘Lost Cove’. It’s a hotbed for strange and paranormal events like UFO and Big Foot sightings.
“There’s so much we haven’t uncovered. It’s possible our reality as we know it is not complete. We started telling the tale of a 17-year-old who went missing. It’s based on a true story with many details changed. Art dictates reality, and reality dictates art. Making this record was a very strange and mystical process. It’s the most magical and inspired moment of our career so far.”
