Calling all vinyl junkies—this one’s for you!

Whether they’re promoting animal adoption, talking about their vegetarian diets, or hanging out with peta2’s other besties Rise Against, Silverstein RULES!

If there’s anything peta2 loves more than awesome, compassionate bands, it’s musicfrom awesome, compassionate bands! And that’s why we’re giving away two copies of Silverstein’s latest album, Short Songs, on vinyl. Silverstein used their 2011 album, Rescue, to draw attention to the companion animal overpopulation crisis, and Short Songs is no follow-up flop.

Each of the 22 tracks packed on this album are under 90 seconds–so punk rock! Side A features 11 original Silverstein tracks, and the band delivers again on Side B with 11 classic punk covers. The title track, a cover of Dead Kennedys’ “Short Songs,” features a ton of guest vocals, including peta2 homies Tim McIlrath (Rise Against), Chris #2 (Anti-Flag), Chris Hannah (Propagandhi), and Nick Diener (The Swellers).

    I honestly love all of Silverstein’s songs. They are such an amazing band I can’t choose just one. I’ve been listening to them since their first song came out:)

    my favorite song by silverstein is “you’re all i have”. the lyrics, “without you here i’m left for dead”. it really just speaks to me that animals don’t have a voice, they don’t. they have noises but nothing we can understand. they can feel just as much as we can. and without us defending them, and fighting for animal rights, there will be no hope, in which case they will die..

    Out of so many amazing and inspiring lyrics from my absolute favourite band, my favourite lyrics from Silverstein is definitely from the album “A Shipwreck in the Sand” from the album title song “A Shipwreck in the Sand”! The lyrics are as followed:
    “This union, a battle fought and lost // This union was not about the cause // This union was never about love”.

    I used to make the light shine for you. The sun has left my sky. Velvet walls surround my sorrows. I’ve sacrificed my pride. Giving up on me. You’re giving up on me. Giving up on me. You’re giving up on me. I’ve laid myself to sleep tonight. I know you’ve played out everything in your mind. And now you throw it all away. A shattered memory that you would stay. Through thick and thin with me. You’re giving up on. Giving up on me. You’re giving up on me. Giving up on me. You’re giving up on me. I’ve laid myself to sleep tonight. I know you’ve played out everything in your mind. Your mind. And now you throw it all away. A shattered memory that you would stay. Through thick and thin with me. And when you feel the pain. I’m wishing I could stay. How can I say I love you back. You never made me happy. You’ve laid yourself to sleep. I never said this wouldn’t hurt.You gave up everything. I never said I’d give it back. I know. You’ll never change. I won’t be good enough for you. I know.You’ll make it through. I’ll never be around to see. And now you throw it. All away. A shattered memory that you would stay. Through thick and thin with me.

    First time listening to them but “Smile in your Sleep” isn’t bad. I’m interested in hearing more of their songs that are anchored towards animal rights. :)

    The sleepless nights have no compassion
    And the dreams that come aren’t true.
    A charade of lies unconscious
    And so much left to be proved.
    But the sun will rise and fall again
    And the nights will start to shorten.
    The memories will fade into darkness.
    You can’t let it go.
