Spiritbox Honor Late Grandmothers With Touching ‘Constance’ Video

We wrote the music for this song at the same time as ‘Blessed Be’ and ‘Rule of Nines,' but I hadn’t ever committed to lyrics," commented LaPlante.She continued, "I came to our director Dylan with a proposition: Let’s create the music video and the lyrical content of the song at the same time. We both felt compelled for the song and story to reflect the sorrow we both feel about our grandmothers passing away recently."Sadly, travel restrictions that were enacted as the coronavirus pandemic worsened worldwide prohibited LaPlante from getting one last opportunity to spend time with her grandmother."Due to border shutdowns, I was not able to say goodbye to my grandmother Phyllis, to whom the song is in tribute, or attend her funeral," lamented the frontwoman. Our music videos usually have a horror element to them, and we wanted to explore a different side of horror: the horror of feeling like your mind is betraying you, due to a long battle with dementia. With Dylan’s permission, we named the song ‘Constance’ to immortalize her story."Read the lyrics to "Constance" directly below and watch the music video further down the page.Dying sun burns in the nightI watch it glow and it’s so hard for meSpeaking darkness out of spiteCoercion and then caving inWrap me in my bitternessGive it up I’m complacentJust enough to escape thisHeretics wouldn’t phase meLucid trust I don’t want itPalms are rough when you promiseFire lies when you’re honestIt’s hard to lose and wonder whyYou pressure in incrementsLike a slow moving coupMemories dissidentWhen I am holding youIf my sun won’t set tonightI’ll look around but it’s so hard for meLike a shadow passing byCrashing into shapes and thenFading with my innocenceGive it up I’m complacentJust enough to escape itHeretics wouldn’t phase meLucid trust I don’t want itPalms are rough when you promiseFire lies when you’re honestIt’s hard to lose and wonder whyI have been waiting my whole lifeFor pressure in incrementsLike a slow moving coupMemories dissidentWhen I am holding youEarlier this year, Spiritbox signed a record deal with Rise Records, who will release the band's debut record.Spiritbox, "Constance" Music Video55 Scene Albums That Went Platinum

I hoped writing this song with no 'scary screaming' in it would help me find a sense of closure."LaPlante further elaborated, "Dylan wrote his video concept to honor his grandmother, Constance, to whom the video is in tribute.
