Enlarge The band's latest is a banger, and emotionally heavy as well.

Spiritbox Will “Hurt You” with Their Newest Song


Everyone’s favorite rising metal stars, Spiritbox, have unveiled “Hurt You,” the latest single from their forthcoming album Eternal Blue.

Surprising absolutely no one that’s been paying attention to this band’s rise over the past year-plus, the song is super catchy in every way possible (riffs, grooves, vocal hooks) and hits plenty hard. It’s no wonder Spiritbox have been the great unifiers of metal fans… they’ve got a little something for everyone other than the grouchiest and most elitist of doom and stoner stalwarts.

The song’s lyrics are likely to strike a chord with pretty much everyone, too, tackling “toxic codependency” and the inability to escape a doomed relationship. Woof… been there, I feel you, Courtney.

Guitarist Mike Stringer says of the new track:

“‘Hurt You’ is a song that was written before the pandemic, in early 2020 during a snowstorm. We were stuck inside, and couldn’t go anywhere, so this song flowed out of myself, Courtney, and our producer Dan pretty quick. The subject matter of the song explores toxic codependency, and the feeling of knowing that something is doomed to fail, but making the choice to go down with the ship. The video, directed by Dylan Hryciuk, is horror inspired, and depicts love in four different acts. It’s the first video we’ve made where we do not make an appearance, and allow the story to be the main focus.”

Eternal Blue comes out on September 17 via Rise Records; pre-order here. Check out the previous single, “Secret Garden,” as well.
