Drop Music Video For Title Track

2021’s hottest heavy band, SPIRITBOX, announced the release of their first new music since their incendiary, chart topping debut album, ‘Eternal Blue‘. The new release comes in the form of a 3-track single titled ‘Rotoscope‘ and sees the band bringing their unique spin to a more industrial, 90s alt-rock-tinged sound. The new drop is accompanied by an official music video directed by Max Moore which can be watched now below. The full 3 songs can be streamed HERE.

SPIRITBOX | ROTOSCOPE

Track List:

  1. Rotoscope
  2. Sew Me Up
  3. Hysteria

Fresh off of a run of incredible US festival performances and their first full US tour with Underoath, SPIRITBOX are currently conquering the rest of the world one jaw-dropping performance at a time. The band recently played what is already being referred to as a legendary set at Download Festival, UK and followed it with two completely sold-out shows at London’s Islington Academy. The second of which saw the band joined by current America’s Got Talent viral superstar, 10 year old Harper, who performed the band’s break out hit, “Holy Roller” both as her audition for the TV show (watch here) and live with the band in London (watch here). Here’s what the UK press have been saying:

“Spiritbox are coming to claim the thrones of all the old Kings who have become complacent in the post-Covid world.” – Daily Express

“One of the most anticipated acts of the [Download] festival, they packed out the Avalanche tent long before they arrived on stage, totally in their element as they ripped through a dynamic set that demonstrated exactly why they’re racking up so many millions of views.” – The Forty Five

“Whether you were there or not, Spiritbox have staked a claim on being the metal band every fan needs to know after Download Festival 2022, on a rocket ride that seemingly has no end in sight.” – Metal Hammer

“Flawlessly tight, spine-tinglingly heavy and wholly powerful, it’s hard not to feel a little bit choked up. That choked-up feeling lingers as colossal moment after colossal moment follows….One of the most brutal, beautiful, and breathless shows this room has ever seen.” – Rock Sound

“This must surely be the start of what deserves to be a lifelong love affair with Download, and the UK live scene at large. There’s plenty of Download sets that become the stuff of legend, the “I was there,” moments that are talked about for years afterwards. Trivium ’05. Slipknot ’09. Spiritbox ’22 deserves to be the new addition to that illustrious hall of fame.” – Kerrang

“Their 30-minute set “is a good first date”, according to vocalist Courtney LaPlante, but it feels far too short to fully show off the brilliance of their progressive, energised metal.” – NME

SPIRITBOX will remain in Europe playing major festivals and selection of one-off headline shows until June 30th. They will then play US festivals – Rock Fest and Inkcarceration with a sold-out headline show in Grand Rapids in between. They then play another one-off, sold-out headline show with Dayseeker and Brand of Sacrifice before heading out to lay waste to arenas across the US with Ghost and Mastodon.

LIVE REVIEW: UNDEROATH VOYEURIST NORTH AMERICA TOUR 2022

SUPPORTED BY SPIRITBOX, BAD OMENS AND STRAY FROM THE PATH

American metalcore band Underoath is currently wrapping up their Voyeurist North American tour, where they are supported by Spiritbox, Bad Omens and Stray From The Path. On March 20th they stopped in Starland Ballroom which is in South New Jersey town Sayreville.

Written by Andris Jansons

Voyeurist tour is about to come to the end with few shows left. And while the bands have been touring already since February 18th, they did not show any signs of fatigue. Actually, on contrary, all bands were performing with extreme energy.

First one on this night were Long Island natives Stray From The Path. While bands musical style can be interpreted in many ways, I really got that hardcore punk feeling listening to their songs, their onstage persona and lyrics. While they opened set with The House Always Wins, it was the second song Outbreak that made me think “Well, this is punk rock!”. You know, whenever you hear “Fuck The System” said repeatedly, you make no mistake.

What can I say? The band was simply amazing, and full of energy. Vocalist Andrew Dijorio was all over the stage, delivering powerful social messages with poise and passion. The band performed variety music from their ten studio albums, and also played their latest single Guillotine.

Next came American metalcore band Bad Omens. Band just released their new album The Death Of Piece Of Mind. You can read about it here. All first songs from their set were from the new record – The Death Of Peace Of Mind, Artificial Suicide (bands vocalist Noah Sebastian wore a mask while performing it), Like A Villain and What Do You Want From Me?. Rest of the songs were taken from their second studio album Finding God Before God Finds Me.

It was not my first time seeing Bad Omens live. They never disappoint. High energy performance is what you can expect from them every time. Bad Omens are poised for a success as their newest album has reached 11th position on Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums. After finishing tour with Underoath, Bad Omens will continue to tour with In This Moment.

Bad Omens were followed by a Canadian sensation Spiritbox. Band released their debut album Eternal Blue in September of 2021, and instantly gained good reviews. Band is widely considered as metalcore. They opened the set with Rule Of Nines, standalone single not included in their debut album or any preceded EP’s. There was one more single like that called Blessed Be, while other songs from set were from Eternal Blue.

Bands vocalist Courtney LaPlante was beautifully transitioning her voice from melodic singing to a growl, while her husband Mike Stringer was shredding on the guitar. On the song Holy Roller she was joined by none other than Will Ramos from Lorna Shore. Needless to say, that this collaboration received very loud and positive reaction from the fans. Band wrapped up their set with title song Eternal Blue.

Underoath performance was preceded by a masked man delivering a message to the audience. With his mask being illuminated as electronic human face, he asked audience to raise hands and fell the atmosphere and this specific time and place. As soon as the man delivered his message and disappeared into the darkness, Underoath stormed the stage under the pulsating lights and exploded with Damn Excuses, the song from their latest album Voyeurist. They followed with Breathing in a New Mentality and On My Teeth. Their set consisted with representation of the most of their albums while leaving out their earliest ones.

With Underoath hard hitting style is hard to imagine that they did not use a single profanity in any of their songs, until that happy day when we first heard On My Teeth. While it was understood concept for a band that has been strongly labeled as a Christian band, though band themselves are distancing themselves from that label.

Vocalist Spencer Chamberlain delivered in your face aggressive performance, while bands guitarists played so close to the edge of the stage that any fan could easily reach out to them. Christopher Dudley was trying not to get lost between all the instruments that he is in charge of playing, and he did not miss a beat while doing all that with an extreme level of energy. And that was exactly the feeling you got, no matter where you stood, right by the stage or further away, full onslaught of in-your-face aggressiveness and energy. Absolutely astonishing performance!
