SPIRITBOX add additional headline show, Download Fest stage upgraded

Due to overwhelming demand, SPIRITBOX are thrilled to confirm they’ve been able to add a second night in London after their Download Festival performance.

Announcing their debut headline UK performance on Monday 13th June last week, the show promptly sold out in under a minute.

The band will now perform at the O2 Academy, Islington, on Tuesday 14th June as well. Age restrictions for both shows are 8+, though under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

There will be no pre-sales for the second night and fans will be restricted to purchasing 2 tickets each only. Tickets go on sale at 10am GMT this Friday 4th March at: https://www.livenation.co.uk/artist-spiritbox-1362380.
Download Festival also recently announced that SPIRITBOX have been moved up a stage, and will now perform on the Avalanche stage on Sunday 12th June, instead of the Dogtooth stage.
Last night, it was revealed the band have been nominated for 2 awards at the prestigious Juno Awards in Canada – Break Through Group Of The Year and Metal/Hard Rock Album Of The Year. The Juno Awards will be held on 15th May in Toronto.
The band previously announced a special collaboration with Z2, to present “Eternal Blue: A Spiritbox Graphic Novel” by veteran comic writer Jim Krueger, artist Amilcar Pinna, and colourist Treonna Farrell. The graphic novel unspools the eerie tale of Eva, a brilliant painter on the verge of unbelievable acclaim and success. But her inability to reconcile her public perception with her true self allows a Spiritbox — a device used to communicate with the dead — to transport her to an ethereal world. Here, she finds herself trapped in a realm where false shadows become real and dangerous. The novel is offered in both softcover and hardcover formats, with covers courtesy Justin Cherry available in select comic shops, as well as deluxe, super deluxe and platinum editions packaged with a limited-edition, functional Spiritbox device, gallery-ready prints by Jason Levesque, and more available exclusively through Z2’s webstore.
SPIRITBOX’s ‘Eternal Blue’, one of the mostly hotly anticipated debut albums in recent years, was released on September 17th, 2021. The band went on to smash week 1 charts across the world. In the USA, it landed at #13 on the Billboard Top 200 and topped both Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and Hard Rock Album charts, as well as debuting in the Top 20 of the official album charts in Australia (#8), Canada (#17), Germany (#17), and the UK (#19). To date, SPIRITBOX has received more than 163 million digital music streams and has had the #1 song on SiriusXM Liquid Metal for two consecutive years – the first artist in the history of the programme to achieve this. Find ‘Eternal Blue’ on all streaming platforms here and stream the video playlist on YouTube here.
The release rolled in on a global tsunami of critical acclaim, from perfect score reviews and features everywhere including Spin, Forbes, and Alternative Press, to multiple front covers including Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Rock Sound, Distorted Sound, Pollstar, and Revolver.

What The Press Are Saying

“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

“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!

“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

“Worthy of the accolades that have been flooding the internet… Spiritbox are indeed a troupe de force for contemporary metal, and may very well transcend the genre altogether.”
– Fistful of Metal

“A perfect scene of brutality and majesty all harmonising to create the next big thing: Spiritbox.”
– Upset

“The hottest heavy band on the planet.”
– Rock Sound

What Spiritbox have achieved is remarkable; ‘Eternal Blue’ flows beautifully and feels like a truly cohesive whole that delivers on its promises and then some.”
– Hardbeat

“This is the sound of the genre’s future.”
– Classic Rock

“‘Eternal Blue’ is a masterpiece of modern heavy music; a record that twists and turns and sits long in your memory and warrants listen after listen. Not only does live up to the immense hype but it exceeds it entirely.”
– Distorted Sound

“Their eclectic, cathartic debut album ‘Eternal Blue’ utterly slaps.”
– Guitar

“One of the breakout bands of 2021.”
– Total Guitar
