Silverstein & Bayside to take action in Boston

, Staff

Silverstein and Bayside are teaming up to co-headline the “Take Action” tour this spring. The tour will kick off next month at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club on Friday, April 22. Tickets for the all-ages show are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $18.  Polar Bear Club, The Swellers and Texas In July will round out the bill

This year marks the 10th Anniversary of Sub City’s (Hopeless Records’ registered 501c3 non-profit organization) Take Action tour. Proceeds from this year’s outing will benefit Sex, Etc. for teen sexuality education. As the teen-focused program of Answer, the award-winning national organization based at New Jersey’s Rutgers University, Sex, Etc.’s mission is to improve teen sexual health information and resources across the country.

“Growing up, every local show we played was a charity show,” recalled Silverstein vocalist Shane Told in a press release. “It was an important part of the scene that we were doing what we loved and more importantly helping others. To step back into that and work with our label to give back, it feels really great. We were a part of Take Action Tour in 2006, and when we had the opportunity to co-headline the tour this year, we jumped at the chance. We couldn’t be more proud to be leading the charge this year with our best friends, Bayside.”

Bayside bassist Nicholas Ghanbarian added, “We’re really excited to be part of Take Action Tour because we’ve never been on a tour where part of the proceeds is going to charity which is great. We’re also super excited to be heading out on the road with some friends that we haven’t played with in years!”

Silverstein are gearing up for the release of their forthcoming release, Rescue. The new album, the Canadian rockers’ fifth studio effort, will hit stores on April 26.

Bayside are also touring in support of a new album, having released Killing Time last month. The album, their fifth studio effort, was produced by Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World).
