Things have been a bit quiet in the iwrestledabearonce camp over the past year or so. However, it seems that vocalist Courtney LaPlante and guitarist Mike Stringer, who are also married to one another, have been working on a new project that has finally been revealed: Spiritbox.
The duo have announced that they’ll be releasing their debut self-titled EP later this month on October 27th 2017.
“Personally, this record is really important for me because I finally was able to sing a lot”, shares LaPlante. “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 also 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.”
