Hello Rocksmith fans!
This week @silverstein makes their Rocksmith debut and with it comes FOUR songs never before seen in a music game!
We discovered over the weekend that both My Heroine and Smile in Your Sleep off Discovering the Waterfront (2005), would be featured in the song pack. Today we can confirm (via Xbox AU) that both Smashed into Pieces and Bleeds No More off When Broken Is Easily Fixed (2003) will be included as well!
Originally formed in 2000 as a side project, Silverstein were launched by vocalist Shane Told, guitarist Josh Bradford, drummer Paul Koehler, guitarist Richard McWalter, and bassist Bill Hamilton in Ontario, Canada. After diving into Ontario’s hardcore/emo scene — which also included bands like Moneen and Grade — Silverstein found an audience for their particular brand of shimmering emo and hot-blooded post-hardcore. Silverstein‘s self-released EP, Summer’s Stellar Gaze, was quite well received upon its release in 2000, and the band soon became the full-time project of its members. After a lineup change that saw McWalter being replaced by ex-Maharahj guitar player Neil Boshart, the group began to tour the eastern provinces of Canada in earnest. (AllMusicGuide)
In September 2012, the band had announced that Neil Boshart had been fired and would be replaced by Paul Marc Rousseau, who also joined Billy Hamilton on backing vocals. The band achieved moderate success with their second studio album, Discovering the Waterfront, which was nominated for a Juno Award and reached No. 34 on the Billboard 200 charts, with the following two albums charting at similar positions. Silverstein has sold over 1,000,000 albums worldwide. (Wikipedia)

Only one string to tune this week!
Alt. Arrangements for the Silverstein Song Pack:
The Representative Rhythm arrangement is chord-based, but doubles the Lead path occasionally.
The Alt. Rhythm path has a melodic octave section that harmonizes with the lead during the bridge.
From the Note Tracker: “Rather than only include one of the octave melodies, we decided to also include the harmony part, to be more inclusive to all parts played in the song.”
There you have it FOUR songs from post-hardcore Canadian’s @silverstein! Does this type of music interest you, or are you hoping to see what @UbisoftStudioSF meant by “we’ll go to the cinema”? Let us know!
