Silverstein will be throwing down at this years Dirt Fest, if you're not familiar with their music you can check out their new music video for 'Burning Hearts'. The song is taken from their current album 'Rescue' and features some good old fashioned police brutality.

Silverstein formed in Burlington, Ontario, on the outskirts of Toronto in 2000. Emerging from the thriving hardcore scene in their hometown, the band began honing their sound, and recording whenever possible. Two EPs followed and a former member of Grade began talking the band up to his friends at Victory Records. The band signed with Victory shortly afterward. They released ‘When Broken Is Easily Fixed’ which went on to sell over 200,000 copies worldwide, earning the band a spot in Alternative Press’s “100 Bands You Need To Know” in the spring of 2005. They followed the national attention with their sophomore LP; 2005′s ‘Discovering the Waterfront’ and non-stop touring. Silverstein became one of the most talked about bands on the hardcore/emo scene. Many fans responded with tattoos of their distinctive robot artwork–a permanent display of their devotion.

The band has since release three albums; 2007′s ‘Arrivals and Departures’, 2009′s ‘A Shipwreck in the Sand’ and their current release ‘Rescue’.
