We recently announced that Silverstein will be releasing their new album, This Is How The Wind Shifts. We just got word that the album will officially be available on February 5, 2013 via Hopeless Records. It has now been released that the album will be a concept album.

What makes this even cooler is that this album is getting a very special vinyl treatment to go along with the concept. There will be a regular release on CD, a 12″ version, and finally a special edition vinyl box set that will  consist of eight 7″ records that tell six stories, along with two other 7″ records called This is How and The Wind Shifts. This box set can be pre-ordered here.

The band has also released a statement about the album, along with a new lyric video for the new track “Stand Amid The Roar,” both of which can be seen after the jump as well as the track listing and tour dates.

“The idea of this album is how a persons life can change forever with just one event. It is the “what if” that everyone thinks about from time to time. This album is different from a typical start to finish story concept album, or an album where all the songs have a common theme. Each track has a parallel track that tells the story in a different light, what would have happened if things were different due to a single event. The song titles of each parallel track go together, forming a sentence or in some cases two words that relate to each other and to the story. Overall, the point of this album is not to prove the existence of fate, or to disprove it. It’s a discussion of life, of loss, of trial and error, of success within failure, of failure within success, of the struggle between your actions and your feelings, and how those don’t always go together. This Is How The Wind Shifts is a journey that jumps around but stays cohesive, with underlying meaning and stories that have a real human meaning and cater to the soul. ”

– Vocalist Shane Told
