SPIRITBOX’s ‘Eternal Blue’, one of the mostly hotly anticipated debut albums in recent years, was released on September 17th to mass acclaim from both fans and media alike (for our review go here). Recently, the band was thrilled to share that the album has more than exceeded the overwhelming hype by smashing the week 1 charts, landing at #13 on the Billboard Top 200 and hitting the #1 spot across the Rock, Hard Rock and Vinyl charts, #2 on the Internet Albums and Independent charts and #3 on Digital Albums and Album Sales. ‘Eternal Blue‘ also debuted in the Top 20 of the official charts in Australia (#8), Canada (#17) Germany (#17) and UK (#19). In the US alone, the album sold 22,638 copies in its first week and has clocked up an incredible 60 million streams.

Speaking on the phenomenal success of their debut album, Courtney LaPlante and Mike Stringer share:

“To say we are overwhelmed by the reception to Eternal Blue is an understatement. We’ve literally spent the last 10 days trying to process it all. If you had told us when we started Spiritbox, back in 2017, or indeed, when we first started our musical careers years before, that our debut album would chart even in the Top 50 of the Billboard Top 200, we definitely would not have believed you. That it debuted at #13 is a total dream come true. The deepest, heart felt thank you to our incredible fans. We don’t have words for how much your support means to us. This band would not be here if it wasn’t for you. Eternal Blue is yours now. We hope we did you proud.”

The release rolled in on a tsunami of critical acclaim and perfect score reviews. Metal Injection stated “Eternal Blue will be remembered as a game changer, the kind of total reset of the rulebook we saw in Slipknot‘s debut” in their 10/10 review, Kerrang! Magazine called it the ‘debut of the year’ in their 5/5 review, Outburn Magazine called it “a modern metal masterpiece” in their 10/10 review and Metal Hammer hailed ‘Eternal Blue’ as a “staggeringly brilliant record that resoundingly delivers on the hype” in their 9/10 review.

Characterized by fierce intensity, unwavering emotion and technical splendor, their debut full length album ‘Eternal Blue’ is destined to latch onto the hearts and minds of those who hear it. It is that connection between fan and artist that drives Courtney, Mike and Bill in all that they do as the Spiritbox phenomenon continues to grow bigger and bigger.
