Shane Told has been writing songs and singing since he first heard Michael Jackson's Thriller through his parents stereo as a toddler. As soon as he was old enough to wrap his hand around the neck of a guitar, he formed his first band at the age of 10, just before the start of junior high.
At 19, after slugging it out for years as a guitarist/lead singer in a punk band, Shane formed Silverstein, which lead him to the forefront of the post-hardcore scene. Playing in front of thousands at major festivals, sold out headline shows, and supporting multi-platinum selling artists in arenas and stadiums, Shane further honed his craft becoming one of the few vocalists proficient in both singing and screaming technique, while further progressing as a songwriter.
To date, Silverstein has put out 7 full length albums, dozens of 7", EP and single releases and has sold over 1,000,000 albums worldwide.
