Here’s what the UK press said after the band slayed Download Festival last June & 2 instantly sold-out nights in London…
“Spiritbox are coming to claim the thrones of all the old Kings who have become complacent in the post-Covid world.” – Daily Express
“One of the most anticipated acts of the [Download] festival, they packed out the Avalanche tent long before they arrived on stage, totally in their element as they ripped through a dynamic set that demonstrated exactly why they’re racking up so many millions of views.” – The Forty Five
“Whether you were there or not, Spiritbox have staked a claim on being the metal band every fan needs to know after Download Festival 2022, on a rocket ride that seemingly has no end in sight.” – Metal Hammer
“Flawlessly tight, spine-tinglingly heavy and wholly powerful, it’s hard not to feel a little bit choked up. That choked-up feeling lingers as colossal moment after colossal moment follows….One of the most brutal, beautiful, and breathless shows this room has ever seen.” – Rock Sound
“This must surely be the start of what deserves to be a lifelong love affair with Download, and the UK live scene at large. There’s plenty of Download sets that become the stuff of legend, the “I was there,” moments that are talked about for years afterwards. Trivium ’05. Slipknot ’09. Spiritbox ’22 deserves to be the new addition to that illustrious hall of fame.” – Kerrang!
“Their 30-minute set “is a good first date”, according to vocalist Courtney LaPlante, but it feels far too short to fully show off the brilliance of their progressive, energised metal.” – NME
