Spiritbox have quickly become hotly tipped as one of the most exciting, creative and unique new forces to erupt from the world of heavy music. The husband-and-wife duo of Courtney LaPlante and guitarist Mike Stringer began self-releasing music as Spiritbox in 2017. Joined by bassist Bill Crook in 2018 and partnering with independent label Pale Chord , the band continued to grow a cult-like following across a series of single releases and an EP. Each release has seen them consistently push boundaries both sonically and visually with their beautifully haunting music videos and the unique musical juxtaposition of gloriously ethereal and brutally heavy that has become the Spiritbox calling card. Drawing their name from a device that some believe is capable of communing with the dead, the band have a paranormal undertone that runs through everything they do, using EVP electronic voice phenomena) recordings both at their live shows and within their tracks. Since their debut release in 2017, the band have garnered a cult-like online following which has led to over 66.6 million streams across all platforms and sell-outs on every physical release they've sold to date. Spiritbox signed to globally renowned label, Rise Records in the fall of 2020 and are set to release their debut full-length album later this year. The band are also scheduled to perform on major festival line-ups across Europe including Reading & Leeds, Download, Rock am Ring and Rock im Park.
