Spiritbox, the Courtney LaPlante-fronted Canadian Metal act quickly picking up steam, have announced they have signed with Rise Records in association with their own label Pale Chord Music.
In celebration, the band have announced a special 7″ vinyl of their hit single, “Holy Roller”, and will also feature a previously unreleased remix featuring guest vocals by Crystal Lake frontman, Ryo Kinoshita. The remix is set to hit digital services on October 2nd. Pre-orders for the 7″ can be found here.
Speaking on the new partnership, frontwoman Courtney LaPlante said-
“We have always dreamed of partnering with a label that embraces our DIY mentality and respects our independence, a label that understands immediately what we want to accomplish and how we want to get there.
It has been surreal getting to know the team at Rise Records, never feeling like we have to be anything other than our authentic selves. They are not some monolithic corporation, but individuals with a passion for music. They understand us and allow us to just be Spiritbox, now with the resources and guidance that we have always wanted. I keep thinking I am going to wake up from some fever dream and it was all in my head.
To our fans. We are so excited to celebrate this milestone with you. We know how hard you have worked to spread the word about our band and we are so grateful for the time, energy and belief you have invested in us. We understand that with more resources comes higher expectations. We will not let you down, I promise!”
Sean Heydorn, head of Rise Records, also adds-
“We’re very excited to welcome Spiritbox to the Rise Records family and kick off this partnership with Pale Chord. The band caught our attention some time ago, and watching their exponential growth throughout an otherwise tough year for artists has been really inspiring. Despite all the band have already accomplished and done with Pale Chord, we feel it’s just the beginning.”
