Last week, the band announced a special collaboration with Z2, to present “Eternal Blue: A Spiritbox Graphic Novel” by veteran comic writer Jim Krueger, artist Amilcar Pinna, and colourist Treonna Farrell. The graphic novel unspools the eerie tale of Eva, a brilliant painter on the verge of unbelievable acclaim and success. But her inability to reconcile her public perception with her true self allows a Spiritbox — a device used to communicate with the dead — to transport her to an ethereal world. Here, she finds herself trapped in a realm where false shadows become real and dangerous. The novel is offered in both softcover and hardcover formats, with covers courtesy Justin Cherry available in select comic shops, as well as deluxe, super deluxe and platinum editions packaged with a limited-edition, functional Spiritbox device, gallery-ready prints by Jason Levesque, and more available exclusively through Z2’s webstore.
Spiritbox’s “Eternal Blue”, one of the mostly hotly anticipated debut albums in recent years, was released on September 17th, 2021. The band went on to smash week 1 charts across the world. In the USA, it landed at #13 on the Billboard Top 200 and topped both Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and Hard Rock Album charts, as well as debuting in the Top 20 of the official album charts in Australia (#8), Canada (#17), Germany (#17), and the UK (#19). To date, Spiritbox has received more than 163 million digital music streams and has had the #1 song on SiriusXM Liquid Metal for two consecutive years – the first artist in the history of the programme to achieve this. Find “Eternal Blue” on all streaming platforms here and stream the video playlist on YouTube here.
The release rolled in on a global tsunami of critical acclaim, from perfect score reviews and features everywhere including Spin, Forbes, and Alternative Press, to multiple front covers including Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Rock Sound, Distorted Sound, Pollstar, and Revolver.
