Consisting of Raine Maida, Duncan Coutts, Steve Mazur and Jason Pierce. Our Lady Peace is one of the most successful bands in Canada today. The band has sold over 5 million albums worldwide, won four JUNO Awards and ten Much Music Video Awards – one of the most MMVA’s ever awarded to any artist or group.
In the past few years OLP has slowly and meticulously been planning their latest Album Somethingness released on February 23rd 2018. “Drop Me In The Water”, the first release off Somethingness, signified a return to form both musically and lyrically as OLP embrace their early guitar driven, rhythmic roots and cryptic lyrics. OLP just wrapped up their Canadian Tour with Matthew Good this past spring.
