Hah, Spiritbox is obviously just Courtney and her untalented husband. Anyone else can and will easily be replaced.

There's no way this was planned…no way!


anonymous 85 days ago

Oh no!. Not the……..bass player

Seriously could give less than a shit about this band. So tired of reading about them and all of the collaborations she is involved in. The only artist more overhyped than this is Phoebe Bridgers.

Ex-Band with the Vocalist Who Hired a Hitman to Kill His Wife - good look Courtney.

anonymous 85 days ago

you can tell by their unhinged Instagram comments they are probably terrible to work with


anonymous 85 days ago

Bill rules! -not bill.

Only reason this band is even booked, let alone talked about is because there is a female in the band.


anonymous 85 days ago

let's not sit here and still pretend that Tim actually committed a crime. metal and hardcore is also suppose to be dangerous


anonymous 85 days ago

Paramore did it first


anonymous 85 days ago

have fun playing a tier lower venues hack. nothing after ocean between us was relevant during your stay.


anonymous 85 days ago

Oh ya good work guys. Hire Tim Lambesis' best friend. What a great look. Smart business move.


anonymous 85 days ago

1 who gives a shit 2 what a coincidence


anonymous 85 days ago

Goodbye to the only likeable member


anonymous 85 days ago

Bill brought the good vibes, sad to see him go. Must have felt claustrophobic from the big egos coming from the rest of this band.


anonymous 85 days ago

let me sit here and still pretend that Tim actually committed no crime because I wish I had his dick and balls in my mouth. metal and hardcore is also suppose (I can't spell) to be dangerous >>> Fixed that for you


anonymous 85 days ago

^^ this guy projecting his gay fantasies about Tim Lambesis onto others. You are a sick pervert.


anonymous 85 days ago

Not surprised. It would be my nightmare to tour with an unhinged married couple. Good for that guy for getting out.


anonymous 85 days ago

only pussies are still butthurt about Tim Lambesis. wish he murdered you instead 🤷🏻‍♂️


anonymous 85 days ago

(i can't *pretend to be straight) fixed it for you


anonymous 85 days ago

look at these soft nerds still scrambling since 18-19 haha. Tim did his time and still has a successful metalcore band that is moving new merch off the shelves, getting his masters, owning a gym in SD, helping countless people and close grip incline benching 315. finessed


anonymous 85 days ago

Well hopefully when Mike from Spiritbox tries to have his wife killed, we can all forgive him because he close grip inclines 315.


anonymous 85 days ago

i was going to look this band up and give them a listen but i don't want to end up on the FBIs groomer list cause this shit is for groomers


anonymous 84 days ago

Wish she'd play naked!


anonymous 84 days ago

Lmao the whole "groomers" joke is f*cking CLASSIC alt right projection. Y'all do know that your search histories are well documented, right? Keep googling "how to clean my AR15" and surfing motherless in incognito mode while you point fingers in every other direction.

Is the Canadian government even going to let Josh into Canada?


anonymous 84 days ago

Must have been stealing their money...

anonymous 84 days ago

Also in the park of Tim did his time. Dosen't make what he did okay but it looks like he is making the best and trying to pay it forward. Also what does the bassist have to do with tim?


anonymous 84 days ago

Vocalist got gang banged by Atreyu in 2008 nobody cares good for you Bill go join Sumac with Uncle Nicky


anonymous 84 days ago

Jose Mangin is pissed.


anonymous 84 days ago

Joe Manchin is pissed.


anonymous 84 days ago

Brian Cook of SUMAC has nothing to do with this band.


anonymous 83 days ago

Mackey move to Savannah


anonymous 83 days ago

Leave sumac alone. They're actually good unlike any of the bands on this thread.


anonymous 82 days ago

Hah, Spiritbox is obviously just Courtney and her untalented husband. Anyone else can and will easily be replaced. ^^^^^^ Courtney is not going to sleep with you. Dude, go play with your chode.

I worked with Bill in Vancouver. A genuinely solid funny positive dude. I bet they weren't treating him right.
