Our Lady Peace at Viper Room! (tags)
About Our Lady Peace: While studying at the University of Toronto in 1992, vocalist Raine Maida met guitarist Mike Turner (a British expatriate) and the two formed the post-grunge band Our Lady Peace. They later recruited bassist Chris Eacrett and jazz drummer Jeremy Taggart, playing around the area. Signed to Relativity, Our Lady Peace released Naveed, which sparked the modern rock hit "Starseed," in 1995. They toured with fellow Canadian Alanis Morissette later that summer, and earned a cult following. After replacing Eacrett with bassist Duncan Coutts, Clumsy followed in 1997, and two years later Our Lady Peace returned with Happiness Is Not a Fish That You Can Catch. The new millennium brought another OLP release, 2001's Spiritual Machines, and a sold out promo tour that spring. Shortly thereafter, guitarist Mike Turner left the band due to creative differences and Steve Mazur was brought in to replace him. He and the rest of Our Lady Peace restructed the band's heavy rock sound for the simplistic Gravity, which appeared in June 2002. The band toured throughout Canada and the US in support of the album, and documented the jaunt the following June with Live from Calgary and Edmonton. In addition to the CD, OLP also issued a DVD of the tour. That same month, the band took part in the historic "Concert for Toronto," held at the city's Sky Dome as a way for the city, its citizens, and the nation of Canada to show Toronto's vitality and to quell fears in the wake of the city's bout with the SARS epidemic. In addition to Our Lady Peace, the concert also featured such Canadian superstars as The Tragically Hip and Avril Lavigne. Their new album, “Healthy in Paranoid Times,” the much anticipated follow up to “Gravity” hits stores August 30, 2005 and includes the single “Where are you?”
