Transitions is the third EP by Canadian rock band Silverstein. It is the band's first release with Hopeless since they left their longtime label, Victory Records. Transitions was released digitally through online media outlets on December 7, 2010.[1] It's also the band's first EP since When the Shadows Beam in 2002, prior to signing with Victory.[2]

Writing and recording

Transitions is the band's first release with their new label, Hopeless. Vocalist Shane Told has always been a long-time fan of the label and the albums they release.[1] Prior to the announcement of the EP, Told had stated in interviews that the band had already written 16 songs for a new album, much more than the average Silverstein album.[3] The Transitions EP has two songs that will appear on the band's 2011 full-length album, as well as three B-sides.[4]

Transitions was mixed by Cameron Webb.[5][nb 1]
