Looks like keyboardist Jordan Fish is doing just fine after the his recent split with Bring Me The Horizon.
According to Spiritbox guitarist Mike Stringer, the band is currently in the studio with Fish. No word on if Fish is just producing and recording the new material or playing a more active role in sessions, but still – the combination of Spiritbox and a former Bring Me The Horizon could bear some seriously catchy songs.
"I don't really know [what the new stuff will sound like]," said LaPlante. "But I do think that whatever it is will feel very flexible. We wanted to prove that we could edit our songs down to letting the songs speak for themselves, and not have the band overplaying and stumbling all over the songs. It's just hard for a bunch of really good, talented musicians to show restraint sometimes. But I like a little bit of restraint so the whole song feels like a full song, not just listening to someone showing off for five minutes."
"But what I'm missing from us that I really want to explore a little bit, I think, is… I feel very comfy in 'progressive' music. I like the freedom of you not having to rein back the song — you just kind of let it take you where it takes you. So I think now we have kind of figured out how to do both. We can have a little bit of expression within the instruments that's maybe a little less subtle… Either way, it's always: 'Write better songs.' That's our mantra."
