ERRA Premiere Video For New Version Of “Vanish Canvas” Featuring Spiritbox’s Courtney LaPlante

Spiritbox frontwoman Courtney LaPlante is featured on a new version of ERRA’s song “Vanish Canvas.” You can find a video for the updated take on the track below:

ERRA frontman J.T. Cavey commented:

“We’ve never had a guest feature before, even before my time in the band. ‘Vanish Canvas‘ is a very special song to Jesse and the rest of the band; it felt right if it were to be any song, it was this one. Courtney has been a longtime friend and extremely supportive of me, as well as ERRA; we are honored to have her be our first feature.”

Guitarist/vocalist Jesse Cash continued:

“‘Vanish Canvas‘ is my favorite song that ERRA has written, and Courtney’s presence on it makes it that much more impactful.”

LaPlante added:

“JT asked me to sing on this song, and I would have been honoured and excited no matter what song they had chosen for me. He sent me an unassuming mp3 to listen to titled ‘Karlsruhe’ and I was so excited when I pushed play that it turned out to be my favorite ERRA song, ‘Vanish Canvas‘, and the part they asked me to sing happened to be my favorite moment on the record.”

Spiritbox’s Courtney LaPlante Says The Recording Process For “Eternal Blue” Was “Physically And Mentally Exhausting”

During a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Spritbox’s Courtney LaPlante opened up about the making of the band’s debut album “Eternal Blue.” The singer says the recording process was “physically and mentally exhausting” and that she even suffered a “mental breakdown.”

LaPlante said the following:

“Every day I would wake up and be more and more tired. It’s like acting. Someone has to hear your emotion in their ears, so you have to get into the mentality of whoever the narrator is singing the song. The narrator is usually myself, but at different points in my life. It was a safe environment though; I was with [producer] Dan [Braunstein], [bassist] Bill [Crook] and [guitarist] Michael [Stringer], and they are people who love me, and were there to protect me if things got too weird.”

She went on to say that it was especially challenging to record “Circle With Me”:

“I went to record it and I had no confidence. I sounded so bad, and the guys had to pause my recording session. I had a frickin’ mental breakdown. The guys were like, ‘It’s OK Courtney, we can do this again tomorrow’, and I went into a closet in my room and cried and cried. The next day, magic happened. If I hadn’t had that breakdown the night before I wouldn’t have been able to perform the song like I did the next day.”

LaPlante also added the following about the band’s quick rise to fame:

“I feel like people are going to have expectations of perfection from us, and I want to live up to those expectations. I’m not scared of them. They just make me even more inspired.”

Spiritbox Premiere “Hurt You” Music Video

Spiritbox have premiered a new video for their new song “Hurt You.” This track is from the band’s new album “Eternal Blue,” which will be released on September 17. Guitarist Mike Stringer commented:

“‘Hurt You’ is a song that was written before the pandemic, in early 2020 during a snowstorm. We were stuck inside, and couldn’t go anywhere, so this song flowed out of myself, Courtney and our producer, Dan, pretty quick. The subject matter of the song explores toxic codependency, and the feeling of knowing that something is doomed to fail, but making the choice to go down with the ship. The video, directed by Dylan Hryciuk, is horror-inspired, and depicts love in four different acts. It’s the first video we’ve made where we do not make an appearance, and allow the story to be the main focus.”
