Metalcore band Silent Planet release single/video, ready album

LOS ANGELES-based metalcore band Silent Planet have unveiled a new song with video, "Panic Room". The track explores the mind of a soldier returning home with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Vocalist Garrett Russell spoke about the song which emanates from the band's album 'Everything Was Sound', to be released by Solid State Records on 1st July. "'Panic Room' examines the inner reality of the soldier after suffering instances of violence. . . and resulting cognitive dissonance. The song was inspired by a close friend of the band who shared his story with me while we were in the studio working on this record. The song attempts to examine within a greater culture of war [ideas] held aloft by politicians who patronise soldiers as talking points while cutting bills that could provide soldiers with mental health services while entering into needless, preventable armed conflict. 'Panic Room' tells the story of one veteran who attempts to retain his sense of humanity while being suspicious of his role as a cog in history's strongest war machine."
