“Spiritualized: In Space, Nobody Can Hear You Scream”

As the leader of Spiritualized for a quarter-century, Jason Pierce is one of rock’s most dedicated bandleaders, unequal parts perfectionist and zealous performer. In this new Relix profile, he explores both sides of his personality, from his commitment to live shows that pull out all of the stops to albums that leave no detail undecided. “He’s a dedicated servant to the art of the live performance, but not a perfectionist,” Relix writes. “He welcomes a hiccup here and there because it’s part of the challenge, part of the process, part of the way you figure things out in real-time—because in today’s data-obsessed, algorithm-predicted world, a live show with an orchestra and choir you’re meeting for the first time hours before going onstage is the exact approach to life Pierce needs. Perhaps it’s what we all need.”
