Video: Father & Daughter Create Adorable Remake of Spiritbox’s “Holy Roller”
Spiritbox don’t even have a full-length album out yet, but that eventual effort is already one of the most anticipated metal releases of 2021. The band, started by husband and wife duo Courtney LaPlante and Mike Stringer (both formerly of Iwrestledabearonce), found massive success with “Holy Roller” last year, hitting #1 on SiriusXM and racking up over 2 million views on YouTube, making them easily (and with good reason) one of the most hyped metal bands of the moment.
The band’s reach has now extended to the youngest generation of metalheads: Twitter user @RiseUpRyanKC and his daughter, whose age isn’t mentioned but looks to be perhaps seven or eight, have recreated the video for “Holy Roller” complete with trippy visual effects and corpse-paint on the little one. It’s tremendously well done, and even LaPlante, who is herself a parent, took notice, retweeting the effort with a positive affirmation.
Have a watch along with the original below, and rest assured knowing there is at least some hope for the next generation of metalheads.
