Respire is a screamo/post-black metal band from Toronto, Canada. Since their inception in 2013, Respire has been crafting cinematic, genre-defying soundscapes, perfectly blending heart-wrenching, expansive orchestration with the fervor and aggression of hardcore punk.
After releasing their debut LP Gravity and Grace to critical acclaim in 2016 and embarking on a European tour in 2017, Respire has returned to the studio in 2018 to craft their follow up LP, Dénouement. Dénouement takes the groundwork laid in Gravity and Grace and elevates both the thematic and sonic to new, brutal heights. A stark and relentless confession from the bottom of addiction’s barrel, a coming to terms with trauma, guilt, loss and a pining for catharsis, for self-forgiveness and self-acceptance.
