Our Lady Peace

Our Lady Peace was one of the most successful Canadian bands of the post-grunge era, issuing platinum-selling album after platinum-selling album while also enjoying modest acclaim in America. The group formed at the University of Toronto in 1992, where vocalist Raine Maida and guitarist Mike Turner (a British expatriate) first banded together under the name "As If". They later recruited bassist Chris Eacrett and jazz drummer Jeremy Taggart, and the quartet changed its name to Our Lady Peace in tribute to a Mark Van Doren poem. After partnering with the Canadian branch of Sony Records, Our Lady Peace released 1995's Naveed, a strong debut album that sparked the modern rock hit "Starseed." A smaller label, Relativity, released the album in America, and Our Lady Peace built their North American audience by touring with fellow Canadian Alanis Morissette that summer.

After the band replaced Eacrett with bassist Duncan Coutts, the sophomore effort Clumsy arrived in 1997. Fueled by Raine Maida's unique vocals, which relied heavily on the singer's falsetto range, Clumsy proved to be enormously successful, going platinum in the U.S. and earning a rare diamond certification in Canada. Our Lady Peace returned two years later with Happiness Is Not a Fish That You Can Catch, a lighter album that featured the new addition of synthesizers, and Spiritual Machines followed in 2001. Shortly thereafter, founding guitarist Mike Turner left the band due to creative differences, and Michigan native Steve Mazur stepped in to replace him.

With Mazur on board, Our Lady Peace worked alongside producer Bob Rock to carve out a commercial, mainstream-minded sound for 2002's Gravity. Maida's falsetto range was absent from the album, a change that shocked some longtime fans of the band. Nevertheless, Gravity's polished track list spawned several international singles, most notably "Somewhere Out There" and "Innocent." The band toured throughout Canada and the U.S. in support of such hits, and the jaunt was documented by a concert album (Live from Calgary and Edmonton) and a live DVD. Our Lady Peace then returned to the studio with Bob Rock, intending to reprise their fruitful partnership with another album. Recording sessions proved to be difficult this time around, however, and the group nearly disbanded in the process. Healthy in Paranoid Times was eventually released in late August 2005 and climbed to platinum status, although it failed to match the success of any previous OLP album. Raine Maida would later distance himself from the record, claiming that the band spent too much time filling the album with potential singles for American radio.

A Decade, a greatest-hits album celebrating the first ten years of Our Lady Peace's career, returned the band to the upper reaches of the charts in 2006. The compilation went platinum in America and, like 1997's Clumsy, earned a diamond certification in Canada. Two years later, Our Lady Peace received another surge in popularity, this one coming from an unlikely source: the American television show American Idol. Contestant David Cook was evidently a loyal fan of the band, and he enthusiastically promoted OLP's music during the competition. Cook eventually won the show, and Maida briefly decamped to America to collaborate with the burgeoning musician on his platinum-selling debut. Maida returned his focus to Our Lady Peace shortly thereafter, however, and the band issued Burn Burn, in 2009. The band's eighth studio album found the alt-rockers broadening their horizons, offering up a nine-song set that Maida described as "more experimental and ambitious" than any of their previous outings. The resulting Curve, which was preceded by the first single, "Heavyweights," arrived in spring 2012. ~ John Bush & Andrew Leahey, Rovi

They put on the best live shows ever! They are the best band Ever! Pandora!!! Get with the program!!!!. . . how about Naveed and Spiritual Machines!?!? ! Especially Naveed... just too great an album to leave out in the cold!
I saw them Live in Detroit! Awesome!!
I was suppose to go see them last year in Detroit. Take the train from Texas. I had the ticket bought and everything but my dad wouldnt let me off. We had sso much to do. I had the ticket stub but I lost it two weeks ago when my house burned down. I know i missed out on a hella good show.
I love the emotion that comes through in their singers voice! I personally love nearly everything I've heard from them. OLP to A Decade, they're all great lol

Bob Rock sucks...The first 4 OLP CD's Rock!
I still play OLP Naveed regularly. Different than most everything else. Never heard they're later albums but this song sounds like they've changed. Not as original anymore.
shaft2001
This band has put out SIX original albums and had a lot of hit singles over many many years and all they get is one half-asses paragraph bio. They deserve much better. OLP Rocks!
Naveed is not listed?
Arcade Fire should be on the list as well...defin i t e l y top 5

#5,000,000 3 DAYS GRACE

RANKING THE BEST BANDS FROM CANADA:
Jeff: Well, Rush and Neil Young also hail from Canada. So does actors Kiefer Sutherland and William Shatner.
I remember I discovered this band as a kid watching some canadian music video show, and I caught the last 20 seconds or so of a song off Happiness... That day I had to go to the mall and buy the cd, I was hooked. This really is a band that gets under your skin, in a good way.
Not to be off topic, but there is a man in the WWE that has an entrance theme that Our Lady Peace put together. Look up Whatever. It doesn't sound like most of their stuff, but you can tell it's Raine.
Very underrated but great band! They rock and always sound good!
OLP and Molson XXX, the only good things from Canada...

Great band....when and where are they playing live again?
enforcerpsu
Great band. I love that they still play small venues.
The best thing to come out of Canada since Gretzky!
delivertoale x
Naveed should really be here... it's one of their best albums:
http://en.wi k i p e d i a . o r g / w i k i / N a v e e d _ ( a l b u m )
One of my all time favorite bands. Raine is an incredible songwriter - even his solo stuff (which sounds NOTHING like OLP) is great.
Why isn't naveed a selected disc again?
byuboston
They do great concerts and are tons of fun! I love the music!
melldp
this is one of my fav bands. I feel in love with them when they first came out I I have in away grown up with there music
cooldurg says: I'd never heard this band before a retreat I went on used their song "We Are All Innocent" for a theme. I love it!

Didya get stinky pinky?
olp is one of the best bands out there now. There lyrics actually make sense, good musicianship , great dynamics, and a pretty good singer. If you ever get the chance to see them live take it. They give a great performance.
christopher. h o r n e
I used lyrics from Superman's Dead for my senior quote (class of 1999)...The album Clumsy kick's some serious butt! Our Lady Peace will always have a place in my heart...
These guys will forever be my favorite band :)
This group grows on me every time I hear it. I will want to listen to it more in the future.
