Rising post-metalcore stars Spiritbox have released a video for new single Hurt You. Powered by a turbulent, churning riff, Hurt You comes from the band's eagerly-anticipated debut album Eternal Blue, which is released on September 17.     

"Hurt You is a song that was written before the pandemic, in early 2020 during a snowstorm," says guitarist Mike Stringer. "We were stuck inside, and couldn’t go anywhere, so this song flowed out of myself, Courtney [LaPlante, singer], and our producer Dan [Braunstein] pretty quick. The subject matter of the song explores toxic co-dependency, and the feeling of knowing that something is doomed to fail, but making the choice to go down with the ship. 

"The video, directed by Dylan Hryciuk, is horror-inspired, and depicts love in four different acts. It’s the first video we’ve made where we do not make an appearance, and allow the story to be the main focus." 

Spiritbox have a number of festival dates scheduled before the end of the year, and hook up with Underoath and Every Time I Die in February to embark on the Voyeurist North American Tour. Full dates below. 

Eternal Blue is available to pre-order now
