Recording

The notes are confirmed by Janick Thibault.

In 2016, Eric Tobin of Hopeless Records got in touch with Paul Marc Rousseau of Silverstein and Janick Thibault of Story Untold so that way Thibault's songwriting could be improved. Since the contact, Rousseau ended up co-producing the album. According to Thibault, Rousseau sent Thibault demos of songs Rousseau was working on and In Or Out caught Thibault's attention and was the first song that was confirmed by the band that was going to be on the album. The 3ND is a song Thibault wrote in 2015 about an ex-girlfriend and his relationship and how Thibault was unhappy with relationship he was in while the ex thought it was okay. Thibault wanted The 3ND to sound like if Bullet for My Valentine and Sum 41 wrote a song together. Drown In My Mind is a song Thibault wrote about based on his alcoholism, low self-esteem, and tending to over think things. Delete is a song that was supposed to have been for 5 Seconds of Summer. Dreams That We Don't Share is a song about people not agreeing with certain situations as confirmed by Thibault.

Hopeless Records is an American independent record label in Van Nuys, California.

Personnel

Story Untold

The lead vocalist in popular music is typically the member of a group or band whose voice is the most prominent in a performance where multiple voices may be heard. The lead singer either leads the vocal ensemble, or sets against the ensemble as the dominant sound. In vocal group performances, notably in soul and gospel music, and early rock and roll, the lead singer takes the main vocal part, with a chorus provided by other band members as backing vocalists.

Drum kit collection of drums and other percussion instruments

A drum kit — also called a drum set, trap set, or simply drums — is a collection of drums and other percussion instruments, typically cymbals, which are set up on stands to be played by a single player, with drumsticks held in both hands, and the feet operating pedals that control the hi-hat cymbal and the beater for the bass drum. A drum kit consists of a mix of drums and idiophones – most significantly cymbals, but can also include the woodblock and cowbell. In the 2000s, some kits also include electronic instruments. Also, both hybrid and entirely electronic kits are used.

Story Untold is the self-titled EP by pop punk band Story Untold. This is the first release by the band since being signed to a label, and the only album to feature Mehdi Zidani on drums since the band's signing.

"History" is the first single from Canadian band Story Untold. The members of Story Untold are from Quebec, Canada, which is also home to Simple Plan. Simple Plan has known the five-piece for a while, and the French Canadians teamed up to write Story Untold's newest single "History". The song is about how the band is going to make it big, even if it seems like a crazy idea: "You can call me crazy/But when I close my eyes/I can see it clearly/I can see the shining lights." The song was co-penned with Simple Plan's vocalist Pierre Bouvier and drummer Chuck Comeau. The song is just one of seven songs on the band's self-titled EP. History also has a music video where the band is a part of an underground fight club. It features each boy taking on a different fighter, and it subtly introduces each band member for those who have never heard of Story Untold before. An acoustic version of the song does appear on YouTube but is not featured on the Story Untold EP.

Redux: The First 10 Years is a studio album by Canadian post-hardcore band Silverstein, released in 2019 independently by the band themselves. The album consists of 12 re-recorded songs from their first four albums which were released in their first ten years as a band.
