Respire is a band from Toronto, Canada. Since its inception in 2013, Respire has been crafting cinematic, genre-defying soundscapes, perfectly blending lush, expansive orchestration with the fervor and aggression of heart-wrenching emotional hardcore.
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 for self-acceptance.
