Oh Man, Spiritbox’s Courtney LaPlante Really Messed Up Her Ankle


Right now, Spiritbox are one of the (if not the) fastest-rising metal bands out there. But as anyone knows, heavy metalling is a full-contact sport, and at some point you’re liable to get hurt. Case in point, vocalist Courtney LaPlante just posted a picture of her ankle after what she assures followers is just a sprain — and man, we didn’t know sprains could get that bad!

That’s something Courtney actually confronts in her comments — after posting her initial pictures, which include one shot of Courtney going through airport security in a wheelchair with her ankle all wrapped up, and then one of her ankle looking swollen to hell, a fan asked if it was broken. To which Courtney responded:

“No it isn’t broken! Sometimes it would be easier to just say it is because people don’t understand how bad a sprain can be…this one is a doozy. I got X-rays to be safe, no fracture!”

Man, she sprained the hell out of that ankle!

For the record, we’re not making light of Courtney’s injury. Everyone here at MetalSucks sends her all our best, and wishes her a speedy and relatively painless recovery. I’d suggest a bag of frozen corn on that bad boy, but damn, I’ve never had a sprain that serious.
