Flash forward five years, and Spiritbox is the hottest name in heavy metal, courtesy of a No. 13 debut on the Billboard 200 last week, for the band’s blistering first LP Eternal Blue. The album, released Sept. 17 on Rise Records, marks the genre’s highest-charting release this year — from a band not named Metallica or Iron Maiden — and also bowed atop Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and Hard Rock Albums listings, an eye-opening showing for any band on their debut album.

“This just completely exceeded expectations beyond belief,” Stringer tells Billboard. “It’s just so wild. We’re still buzzing about it. It still doesn’t make sense.”
