Spiritbox sign with Rise Records
Canadian metal band Spiritbox have officially inked a deal with Rise Records. Launched in 2017 by two members of Iwrestledabearonce, Spiritbox have released two EPs and several singles. The band's debut full-length is expected to arrive in 2021. Spiritbox vocalist Courtney LaPlante comments: "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!"
