Our Lady Peace

When Our Lady Peace released Spiritual Machines in 2000, they had become one of Canada’s most successful alt-rock bands. They were about to get even bigger with their next album, the Bob Rock-produced, megahit-spawning Gravity that would make OLP a global force.

Caught in-between those two eras, Spiritual Machines was the surreal left-turn. A concept record named after a book by Futurist Ray Kurzweil (whose voice appears throughout the album), Spiritual Machines found OLP subverting the working rock formula that worked so well for them, writing anthemic guitar hooks next to literal predictive modelings addressing a future dependent on AI and the legal rights of computers. Not your typical mainstream rock record. It sold modestly, but it quickly became a critic and fan favorite, and is now considered one of Canada’s most influential alt-rock records.

Spiritual Machines 2 is both a return to form and the marker of a new era for a band that’s been on the main stage for over 25 years. Our Lady Peace is Raine Maida (lead vocals), Duncan Coutts (bass), Jason Pierce (percussion), and Steve Mazur (lead guitar). They have sold over five million albums, won four JUNO Awards and 10 Much Music Videos Awards (one of the MMVA’s most awarded artists), and have toured the world with The Rolling Stones, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Van Halen, Goo Goo Dolls, Alanis Morissette, and more, in addition to launching their music festival, Summersault, and playing at legendary festivals such as Woodstock ’99 and Live 8. The band’s 1995 debut LP Naveed rode the wave of post-grunge in North America and has been followed by nine other albums, many of which going double platinum. The band’s No. 1 radio hits in Canada include “Clumsy,” “In Repair,” “Somewhere Out There,” and “Angels Losing Sleep.”
