Our Lady Peace, who are celebrating their 20th year as a band this year, have announced plans for their next album. The band, who have seen a slight fall from grace compared to their glory years of the early-mid 90s, will release their 7th studio album, Curve, on the 3rd of April.
Raine Maida, vocalist of the band, spoke out about the upcoming album saying that “This is the record we’ve been trying to make for the past 10 years. There’s something to be said about being beaten up and being able to dust yourself off and get back in the ring,”
“Jason and I had a very frank discussion about the early recordings of ‘Curve’ before he came in,” continues Maida. “He asked why we weren’t making a record that we’d like to listen to ourselves. That was our impetus for abandoning what we started, bringing in Jason and truly challenging ourselves to come up with something more authentic and inspired. He helped us operate without the filter predicated by walking the major label tightrope.”
The first single off the album, Heavyweight is available below.
