Spiritbox’s New Song Sounds Like Heavy Music’s Future


Canadian alt-metal trio Spiritbox managed to have a breakout year amid a global pandemic that shut down live music and the wait for the successor to “Holy Roller” and “Constance” has now arrived through the music video for “Circle With Me.”

Emotion and contrast best sums up the group’s sonic explorations and “Circle With Me” finds Spiritbox, fronted by the dynamic Courtney LaPlante, flipping the switch from ethereal beauty to jarring devastation all while melody, through guitar and electronic instrumentation as well as breathy vocals, remains a constant. Well, less so during the breakdown, but, come on, it’s a breakdown!

“This song was written in the studio as a last-minute addition, one of the many reasons we are so grateful to no longer be exclusively working remotely. It captures the spectrum of emotions I’ve been feeling lately about my music. From the anxiety I feel about messing up, to a confidence meant to protect me from self doubt,” commented LaPlante.

She continued, “Visually, we wanted to present the viewer with the image of us that we miss the most: us performing on stage, with nothing to hide behind: instruments, some lights, and beautiful camera movement.”

Watch the video for “Circle With Me,” directed by Orie McGinness, below and read the lyrics (via Genius) as well.

Spiritbox have finished working on their debut album, though no details have been announced yet. The record is expected to arrive later this year on Rise Records.

Spiritbox, “Circle With Me” Lyrics

[Intro]
Feel the weight of a martyr
It could all be yours
Cut down the altar

[Verse 1]
Visionaire and deepest fake
Dirty gold, the colours change
Hands are frozen, feel no pain
I just want to hold the flame

[Pre-Chorus]
Negative feedback loop
I’m spinning out of control
The sickly sweetness is crushing me
But I want to know
If there’s no heat when I escalate the fire is cold
They echo: This could all be yours

[Chorus]
Feel the weight of a martyr
It could all be yours if you echo birds of prey
Traitor cut down the altar
It could all be yours
Vultures circling the flame

[Verse 2]
Nothing sacred, nothing lost
When birds of prey invade my thoughts
They promise I will feel the pain
Not strong enough to hold the flame

[Pre-Chorus]
Negative feedback loop
I’m spinning out of control
The sickly sweetness is crushing me
But I want to know
If there’s no heat when I escalate the fire is cold
They echo: This could all be yours

[Chorus]
Feel the weight of a martyr
It could all be yours if you echo birds of prey
Traitor cut down the altar
It could all be yours
Vultures circling the flame

[Bridge]
I held the power of a dying sun
I climb the altar and I claim my place as God
Circle with me
Circle with me
This could all be yours

[Chorus]
Feel the weight of a martyr
It could all be yours if you echo birds of prey
Traitor cut down the altar
It could all be yours
Vultures circling the flame

[Post-Chorus]
Feel the weight of a martyr
A traitor watching me as birds of prey never falter
This could all be yours
This could all be yours

[Outro]
Circle with me
