Our Lady Peace - Curve (2012)

Coalition Music recording artists Our Lady Peace have proven to be fighters in the nearly two decades since they first burst onto the scene with the Modern Rock anthem, 'Starseed'. Fittingly, the new single - the chart-topping Rock Radio hit 'Heavyweight' - and the album cover art (featuring a youthful former Canadian Heavyweight champ in one George Chuvalo) for the band's eighth studio recording, curve, are themed accordingly. "There's something about being beaten up and being able to get up, dust yourself off and feel like you can take on the world again," says vocalist/lyricist and founding member Raine Maida about the new album, which was once again recorded in Toronto and his own L.A. home recording studio with co-producer Jason Lader. Lader's impressive resume includes production work on Jay-Z's '99 Problems', along with Mars Volta, Julian Casablancas, Rilo Kiley, & Elvis Costello. "This feels the most like it did in the early days," says drummer Jeremy Taggart, who has been with the band from the start, since he was 17.
