Emo superstars Silverstein will party and play in Manila on October 31

As Filipino fans have proven time and again, watching a concert simply isn’t just about the music, but it’s an experience: joining friends and like-minded souls, jumping up and down in the pit and singing loudly along each and every live anthem – it’s all of this and more that makes each show memorable and unique.


Which is why fans of millennium post-hardcore will be thrilled and smiling in their sleep as they count the days, as PULP LIVE WORLD has just made the official announcement that acclaimed emo icons SILVERSTEIN will be making a long-awaited comeback to the country this fourth quarter of 2023.

That’s right – vocalist Shane Told, guitarists Josh Bradford and Paul Marc Pousseau, bassist Billy Hamilton and drummer Paul Koehler – are bringing their A-game as they always have and have their decade-spanning hits in tow for their loyal Filipino fanbase to go-crazy-to this October 31st, 2023 at the Skydome at SM North Edsa. The show promises to be the loudest and most happening event on Halloween and will once again prove that the country has earned the right to call itself the “emo capital of southeast Asia.”

Formed in the year 2000 in Burlington, Ontario, Silverstein is arguably one of the most successful and both sonically and technically consistent bands to ever champion the genre, which is riddled with stadium-sized choruses, chugging riffs and trademark screamo dynamics that audiences just can’t get enough-of. Having sold over a million albums, and having released a whopping 11 studio albums, their most notable singles include “Smashed Into Pieces,” “Hear Me Out,” “Discovering The Waterfront,” “My Heroine” and the anthemic “Smile In Your Sleep.”

The band has always had a deep connection with their Filipino fan base, and their performance this year in the country is a full-circle moment of sorts, as they had previously celebrated their 20th year anniversary back in January 2020 at the very same venue. Incidentally, the show was also produced by PULP Live World, so die-hards will definitely be eager to treat this as a special reunion of sorts. Needless to say, the singing will definitely be louder and the party even wilder!

Tickets to Silverstein Live in Manila will go on sale this May 28th, 2023 at noon, and will be made available via SM Tickets and smtickets.com. For more information and updates, be sure to check out pulp.ph and follow PULP Live World’s social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
