Spiritbox Release Acoustic Live Performance Of “Constance”


Spiritbox have released a live acoustic performance of their track “Constance“. A string trio joined them for this performance of the track. This performance of the track was recorded in a church earlier this year in conjunction with The Grammy Museum.

The band’s guitarist Mike Stringer commented:

“This live version of ‘Constance‘ was a very ambitious project for us. Before we left to start recording ‘Eternal Blue‘, I had a rough demo of an acoustic version of ‘Constance‘ written.

While we were tracking the album, the Grammy Museum asked us if we’d want to contribute to their ‘Collection:Live‘ series with a live acoustic/stringed composition of the song. Of course this was a huge honor for us and something we couldn’t turn down, but it posed a challenge as we were recording in the middle of the desert, and I had never written a string composition before.

After learning how to turn midi into notation, and some back and forth with our producer Dan Braunstein, and violinist Haruka Horii, we had a version we were confident in. This was the first time we had ever performed this song live, and the addition of the strings by Haruka Horii, Bonnie Brooksbank, and Mark Bassett really brought this whole thing to life.

Putting this together was a great experience, and I hope to explore more acoustic compositions in the future with Spiritbox.”

Additionally, a 7″ for the track has been released here. It features this version of the track as well as the original studio version.
