What the Press Are Saying About Eternal Blue
"Eternal Blue will be remembered as a game changer, the kind of total reset of the rulebook we saw in Slipknot's debut, Pantera's Cowboys From Hell or (whisper it) Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory. One thing is certain. The metal scene may never be the same after this" - Metal Injection 10/10 "This is the thing with Spiritbox: they spin you around. Eternal Blue is dizzying, cleansing and frightening. You need to delve deep to find your place within it, but that journey is the very thing that makes this album so interesting. It’s an entrance that brings darkness and beauty in shades of heavy that you haven’t quite encountered before." - Kerrang! 5/5 "it’s difficult to remember a debut record in recent years that’s landed with as much hype and anticipation as Eternal Blue....Eternal Blue is a staggeringly brilliant record that resoundingly delivers on the hype." - Metal Hammer 9/10 "Modern metal masterpiece" - Outburn 10/10 “Spiritbox’s debut is likely to convert even the most intractable of the band’s (few) doubters. The songwriting talent on display here is simply undeniable, fearlessly pushing them lightyears ahead of their peers as much as it continually strives to set them apart. Eternal Blue is a vital, self-assured effort from the Vancouver trio, as stylistically versatile as it is pleasurably idiosyncratic.” - New Noise Magazine 4/5 " Spiritbox have crafted this incredible album that connects with the listener on an emotional level and takes them on a journey of self-discovery, empathy and overcoming.This isn’t just a debut album, it’s going to become a staple listening experience for anyone who needs a momentary release from the struggles of reality and their lives." - Wall Of Sound 8.5/10 "the selection of multi-million stream singles that have preceded the release of this record is a bit of an indicator that this album is going to be gargantuan and, unsurprisingly, Spiritbox doesn’t disappoint." - V13

Named after a device some believe is capable of communicating with the dead, there’s a sense of the paranormal running through all that Spiritbox do, but this is a group of artists who are very much brimming with life and creating something remarkable with their music.
Characterized by fierce intensity, unwavering emotion and technical splendor, their debut full length album ‘Eternal Blue’ is destined to latch onto the hearts and minds of those who hear it. It is that connection between fan and artist that drives Courtney, Mike and Bill in all that they do as the Spiritbox phenomenon continues to grow bigger and bigger.
Having toured the world many times over with their previous bands - metal outfit iwrestledabearonce (Courtney and Mike) and pop punk band Living With Lions (Bill) - Spiritbox absorbed the highs and lows of living as working musicians and decided to try a different and more sustainable approach when it came to releasing their music. In doing so they quickly garnered a cult-like online following which has led to over 90 million streams across all platforms and sell outs on every physical release and most merch items they've released to date. Towards the end of 2020 they announced that they had signed with world renowned label, Rise Records in partnership with Pale Chord.
