Recently, Our Lady Peace announced their long awaited sequel to their critically acclaimed 2000’s album ‘Spiritual Machines’, a record which has become a pillar of late 90s alt rock and a prime example of their band’s creative brilliance. ‘Spiritual Machines II’ will drop this Fall via Shelter Records and will serve as the answer to their 2000 LP which was influenced by inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil’s book “The Age Of The Spiritual Machines.” ‘ Spiritual Machines II’ is the anti-rock record Our Lady Peace fans have been waiting for.
Last summer, Our Lady Peace released the first track off the forthcoming album, “Stop Making Stupid People Famous” featuring Pussy Riot with a video to pair. The track is a reflection on celebrity influencer culture and how it has weakened the fibers of society. The choreography-ladened video uniquely contrasts the tongue-in-cheek nature of the song with carefree and colorful visuals, highlighting young activists and leaders that society should actually be making famous.
They also introduced their Future Famous program, which recognizes a wide range of exceptional people in different fields (science, environmentalism, music, art, etc) who are making a real difference in the world. Learn more at www.futurefamous.org.
