Make Them Suffer Debut “Contraband” Music Video, Spiritbox’s Courtney LaPlante Guests


Make Them Suffer‘s new single “Contraband” has debuted online with an accompanying music video. The song finds Spiritbox frontwoman Courtney LaPlante guesting and marks the first new material from Make Them Suffer to emerge since last year’s “How To Survive A Funeral“.

Make Them Suffer vocalist Sean Harmanis commented:

“‘Contraband‘ came together centered around one of the riffs in the song that we’d aptly named the ‘floppy fingers’ riff. We’d actually had this [riff] in the bank since way back in 2016. As the song came together, we decided that it was a great opportunity to include Make Them Suffer‘s first-ever guest feature, and we couldn’t have picked anyone better than Courtney! She was a joy to work with and showed such a great enthusiasm toward the song and her parts.”

“Lyrically, the song is about everything and nothing at the same time. It’s about relationships with friends and family. But it’s also a low-key political song, as well as an expression of the frustrations surrounding COVID and its impact on our lives, particularly as members of the music community.

Contraband‘ is a build up — the result of two years without musical catharsis.”
