VIDEO NEWS: Spiritbox Release Video For New Single ‘Constance’

Canadian progressive metal outfit Spiritbox have released a video for their new single Constance. The track is a tribute to both frontwoman Courtney La Plante’s grandmother Phyllis and video director Dylan Hryciuk’s grandmother Constance, whom the song is named after. 

“When Holy Roller took off, we knew that we wanted to use the follow up single as a statement to show that we are not just going to put out the same thing over and over. We wrote the music for this song at the same time as Blessed Be and Rule Of Nines, but I hadn’t ever committed to lyrics,” says LaPlante.
“I came to our director Dylan with a proposition: Let’s create the music video and the lyrical content of the song at the same time. We both felt compelled for the song and story to reflect the sorrow we both feel about our grandmothers passing away recently.”
“Due to border shut downs, I was not able to say goodbye to my grandmother Phyllis, to whom the song is in tribute, or attend her funeral,” she adds. “I always promised her that I would sing at her memorial service, because she always requested a “pretty song with none of that scary screaming”. I hoped writing this song with no “scary screaming” in it would help me find a sense of closure.
“Dylan wrote his video concept to honour his grandmother, Constance to whom the video is in tribute. Our music videos usually have a horror element to them, and we wanted to explore a different side of horror: the horror of feeling like your mind is betraying you, due to a long battle with dementia. With Dylan’s permission, we named the song ‘Constance’ to immortalise her story.”
