iwrestledabearonce Members Unite In Spiritbox, Debut “The Beauty Of Suffering”


Former(?) iwrestledabearonce vocalist Courtney LaPlante and her husband, guitarist Mike Stringer (also of iwrestledabearonce fame) have launched a new band by the name of Spiritbox. Courtney said of the project and the group’s forthcoming self-titled debut EP:

“Personally this record is really important for me because I finally was able to sing a lot. For Michael and me, it is our first collaborative effort since getting married and we wanted every song to reflect our commitment to structure and lyrical emotion, yet still maintain a distinct vibrancy and sound. The first four songs are one long piece meant to be listened to together. They are called ‘The Mara Effect.'”

Stringer added:

“We just wanted to focus on the material, and show our talents as seasoned professionals, but at the same time reflect what lies ahead, within a young and fresh vibe, not something from grizzly old jaded musicians.”

Their EP will arrive in stores on October 27th, here’s a track from it:
