Silverstein have released their contribution to the upcoming Punk Goes Pop 2 compilation. The Burlington-based band - who most likely have a better record collection than you - covered OneRepublic's "Apologize" for the comp. which is due out February 17, 2009. The band commented on the song:
The interesting thing is that even though we've been a band for 9 years, we've never really done any covers. The only one we did was a cover of Lifetime's "Rodeo Clown" for a tribute album that never came out. Most bands start out doing some covers before they write their own songs, but we jumped right into originals.
When we had to choose a song, there was a million we talked about doing, but we all agreed that "Apologize" would be rad. It was a song we all secretly rocked out to, a total guilty pleasure. It's super catchy, it's the kind of song you hear once and it's instantly stuck in your head.
We had so much fun recording this that we decided to do some other covers as well. We're almost done recording our new album and we're going to have some B-Side cover songs as well. Check that out on March 31st!
Bands on the disc include Alesana, Attack Attack, August Burns Red, Bayside, Breathe Carolina, The Cab, A Day To Remember, Escape The Fate, Four Year Strong, Mayday Parade, Silverstein, A Static Lullaby and There For Tomorrow.
