It's been a busy ol' week for Courtney LaPlante. After Spiritbox announced a support slot with none other than Limp Bizkit, now the vocalist has teamed up with Aussie metallers Make Them Suffer on killer new single Contraband.

The band's Sean Harmanis says of the track: "Contraband came together centred around one of the riffs in the song that we'd aptly named the 'floppy fingers' riff. We'd actually had this [riff] in the bank since way back in 2016. As the song came together, we decided that it was a great opportunity to include Make Them Suffer's first-ever guest feature, and we couldn't have picked anyone better than Courtney! She was a joy to work with and showed such a great enthusiasm toward the song and her parts."

Sean adds, "Lyrically, the song is about everything and nothing at the same time. It's about relationships with friends and family. But it's also a low-key political song, as well as an expression of the frustrations surrounding COVID and its impact on our lives, particularly as members of the music community.

"Contraband is a build-up – the result of two years without musical catharsis."
