Spiritbox Release Acoustic Version Of “Constance”

Spiritbox have released an acoustic version of their song “Constance.” This take on the track was recorded in a church with a string trio as part of the Grammy Museum’s “Spotlight Saturdays” series.

Mike Stringer commented:

“This live version of ‘Constance’ was a very ambitious project for us. Before we left to start recording ‘Eternal Blue,’ I had a rough demo of an acoustic version of Constance written. While we were tracking the album, the Grammy Museum asked us if we’d want to contribute to their “Collection:Live” series with a live acoustic/stringed composition of the song. Of course this was a huge honor for us and something we couldn’t turn down, but it posed a challenge as we were recording in the middle of the desert, and I had never written a string composition before. After learning how to turn midi into notation, and some back and forth with our producer Dan Braunstein, and violinist Haruka Horii, we had a version we were confident in. This was the first time we had ever performed this song live, and the addition of the strings by Haruka Horii, Bonnie Brooksbank, and Mark Bassett really brought this whole thing to life. Putting this together was a great experience, and I hope to explore more acoustic compositions in the future with Spiritbox.”

With this news, the band have also launched pre-orders for a limited edition “Constance” 7″ butterfly picture disc. You can get that HERE. As previously reported, Spiritbox’s new album “Eternal Blue” will be released on September 17.

Spiritbox Premiere “Secret Garden” Video

Spiritbox have premiered a new video for their recently released song “Secret Garden.” That track is from the band’s new album “Eternal Blue,” which will be released on September 17. Courtney LaPlante commented:

“I think this is the most scared I’ve been to put out a song, because I realize as we continue to release music in single format, listeners can start to assume what kind of band we are, and are alarmed when we do not meet those assumptions. I want to continue to showcase the fluidity that is inherent in heavy music, and even though this is just one part of a full body of work that may not sound exactly like this song, it is a song that we love and are obsessed with. I celebrate variation. ‘Secret Garden‘ is exciting to me, for this reason. I’m scared but excited, like I’m about to hit the big drop on a roller coaster, and I’m fully embracing that.”

Courtney LaPlante said the following about the new song:

She also added the following about the new album:

“We are very anxious to release our album, it is a body of work we have been accumulating for over two years. Having the recording process put on hold for so long due to the pandemic has made me see that I can never take the experience of tracking an album for granted ever again.

I must say that although we never intended to wait so long to do this record, I think it did help the songs become stronger. I am so happy with every single song, I wish I could release each one as a single with a music video. They all reflect different moments and influences in our lives.

We have had enough time to release the exact music we would like to put out into the world, with no need to compromise. Every single note and every single syllable is the music that we have always dreamed of making and we are very proud of it.”

Spiritbox Premiere “Circle With Me” Video

Spiritbox have premiered a new video for their new song “Circle With Me.” This track will appear on the band’s upcoming album. Courtney LaPlante commented:

“This song was written in the studio as a last minute addition, one of the many reasons we are so grateful to no longer be exclusively working remotely. It captures the spectrum of emotions I’ve been feeling lately about my music. From the anxiety I feel about messing up, to a confidence meant to protect me from self doubt. Visually, we wanted to present the viewer with the image of us that we miss the most: us performing on stage, with nothing to hide behind: instruments, some lights, and beautiful camera movement.”
