Album artwork for Spiritual Machines II by Our Lady Peace

Our Lady Peace release the 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 via Shelter Records serves as the answer to their 2000 LP which was influenced by inventor 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.

The first Spiritual Machines wasn’t a typical mainstream rock record, it had anthemic guitar hooks next to literal predictive modelings addressing a future dependent on AI and the legal rights of computers. Raine Maida, the singer and co-founder of Our Lady Peace, stated: “Twenty years later, ‘Spiritual Machines' predictions have mostly come true, 86% to be exact. Now, new predictions must be made for the future - and with groundbreaking advances in technology, there’s reason to celebrate.”

Produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek (with additional production by Jason Lader on three tracks), the album features the return of Kurzweil with new predictions such as near-future with UBI (Universal Basic Income), AI that will pass the Turing Test by 2029, and sustainable solutions to ending global hunger and poverty. Spiritual Machine II marks an uplifting new chapter for OLP as it carves out a new genre that is best described as future rock with each song crafted to represent the new predictions for our future as a society.
