Spiritbox’s “Circle With Me” is without a doubt a metalcore highlight of 2021. But if a listener needs further proof of that, look no further than the video below of a 2 year old. years playing quite precisely one of the drum parts of April Eternal blue single from the group.
After all, it’s never too early to start playing an instrument, right? And this kid looks pretty awesome on the kit. Maybe that’s because they seem to be related to drummer Alex Camarena from metalcore band Silent Planet, if not to Camarena’s own child. Camarena is the one who shared the clip, tagging Spiritbox singer Courtney LaPlante in the accompanying post.

“Yo @corklezlaplante,” Camarena tweeted with video Tuesday (December 28). “This 2 year old walked into the room, yelled ‘Alexa, play in a circle with me’ and called out JAMMIN. My God. I wasn’t ready. This kid is going to be circling around me in a few years. . I love to see it! “
LaPlante responded in a comment, “@ZevRoseDrums YOUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED OLD MAN. ”(Zev Rosenberg is the current Spiritbox drummer who performed on the album.)
