Canada’s Silverstein have joined Hopeless Records. The post-hardcore outfit left Victory Records in October after four studio albums, a rarities compilation and a live album. The band will make their debut with a new EP, appropriately titled Transitions. It will street on December 7, 2010 and feature three songs, an acoustic version of “Replace You” and a cover of Nine Inch Nail’s “Wish” from their Broken EP.
They commented on the signing:
We have signed to Hopeless Records! We have been huge fans of the label since their inception and they have become great friends of ours over the years. It is great to work with people who not only get what we do and still embrace the scene, but also actually helped create it. After talking to many labels, we felt we would be the most at home here with Louis, and the entire Hopeless Records staff.
They last released Shipwreck in the Sand.

Last week, Fat Wreck Chords reissued Screeching Weasel‘s 1998 full-length Television City Dream with remixed and remastered tracks, bonus material and new artwork; we first told you about it here. Curious to hear how it sounds? Head here to download “Speed of Mutation” and judge the difference for yourself.
Frontman Ben Weasel had this to say about the reissue back in September:
“Bark Like A Dog had done really well for us in 1996 and I loved that record but I wanted to go in the opposite direction rather than do another mid/slow-tempo pop-based album. The album title was taken from a line in D.O.A.’s classic “The Prisoner” and I tried to incorporate that same attitude into the songwriting and tempos: it was meant to be a fast, aggressive, “fuck you” kind of record. Which it was, but the mix and mastering just didn’t deliver the goods. It’s bugged me ever since it was released because I knew it was a great record and it was underrated right out of the gate; hearing it done up right it’s obvious that it’s easily the band’s best post-’94 album.”
A direct download link for the track can be found here.
