Silent Planet Release "Collider" + Announce SUPERBLOOM

Updated: Mar 6

On August 24th Silent Planet announced their upcoming album SUPERBLOOM, which is set for release on November 3rd via Solid State Records. This release date is very significant for the band as it falls on the anniversary of their horrific van accident. To celebrate the announcement of the album, they have shared the new single "Collider" with a music video to go along with it.



"Take all the darkness. All the vitriol, the greed and the vanity; lay it again as dust. Everything can be alchemized. This song is called 'Collider", it's about what comes out of our lives when the people we trust and hold closest are the ones who can hurt or betray us the worst. We don't have to run from the pain or be afraid. The dark gives us the energy to make something beautiful. The song is about alchemizing the darkness and transforming its negative properties."

- Garrett Russel (vocals)


"Silent Planet's new single begins with throbbing electronic pulsations and robotic clean croons, making you think that you're in for a clubby pop song. Nope. The djent instrumentation comes crashing through, and eventually the whole song builds up to a screamed chant that blends poledance-worthy synths with rigid, toe-stubbing breakdowns. Fuck yes."

- Revolver on previous single "Antimatter"


"A SUPERBLOOM is this strange moment where brilliant fauna spring forth unexpectedly and bring forth such an array of colors, it almost feels alien in origin," Garrett notes. "It only lasts for a couple of weeks before it’s gone. While we were recording, the SUPERBLOOM was happening. For me, the record is getting in touch with the other side and watching the strange and paranormal emerge from the mundane and profane, hence the title."

- Russel


Silent Planet's members are Garrett Russel (vocals), Mitchell Stark (guitar), Nick Pocock (guitar), Alex Carmarena (drums). The fourpiece have always had a diehard fanbase. The group has released a string of phenomenal albums including The Night God Slept (2014), Everything Was Sound (2016), When The End Began (2018), and Iridescent (2021). The album standout "Trilogy" has 5.3 million streams on Spotify alone and the genre-bending triumph "Panic Room" from Everything Was Sound has 5 million streams. The band notably took home "Best Underground Band" at the 2017 Alternative Press Music Awards. They have also had the honor of touring with the likes of Motionless In White, August Burns Red, Beartooth and The Contortionist.


Over the course of two years they recorded what would become SUPERBLOOM in Woodland Hills, CA alongside producer and a frequent collaborator of theirs, Daniel Braunstien. Due to a jarring turn of events, this process was split into two seasons. In November of 2022 they were going through a snowstorm in Wyoming, where they survived a terrible accident. Their van had flipped over, leaving the group laying in the wreckage of a bitter Wyoming snowstorm. Garrett was hospitalized with a fractured back and a head injury that required stitches.


"The majority of us were awake when we felt the van start to slide. We had some time to come to grips with the fact we were about to go down and have a close brush with death. Afterwards, we talked about what to do with the band. We went back into the record with an increased willingness to take risks. It bolstered our confidence to try new things. When the accident happened, it did something to my head, and it fed into the album."


"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."
