Speaking on her new podcast, Courtney tells us: “This is a place for us to let our guard down and relate to one another.

Courtney’s band, Spiritbox, had a break out year in 2020 with the release of brutally heavy single ‘Holy Roller’ which debuted at #25 on Billboard’s Hot Hard Rock Songs, spent 7 weeks at #1 on SiriusXM Liquid Metal’s ‘Devil’s Dozen’ and has clocked up an enormous 12.6 million global streams with the recently released remix of the song feat. Ryo Kinoshita of Crystal Lake spending 5 weeks at #2.
The band also signed to world renowned label, Rise Records and followed the success of ‘Holy Roller’ with the release of ‘Constance’ in December of 2020. A stark contrast to the previous release blending Courtney’s sublime vocals with a majestically progressive musical landscape, exhibiting yet another facet of the band’s impressively varied song book and a further showcase as to why Spiritbox have become one of the hottest, fast-rising bands in heavy music. The track elicited an outpouring of emotionally charged Youtube reacts videos (covered by Loudwire here) and has already clocked up 3.2 million global streams.
