If Beyoncé asks you to do something, you either do it, or you’re the ordinary fool who did not listen to Beyoncé. This mantra – WWBD? – transcends genre, which is why Spiritbox’s Courtney LaPlante takes it so seriously.

Beyoncé, who also transcends the genre, sings about the dangers of working nine to five on her new single, “BREAK MY SOUL”.

Consensus? Hard work is, well, hard work: “I just quit my job, I have to find a new drive / Damn, they work me so damn hard / Work at nine, then over five / And they work on my nerves, that That’s why I can not sleep at night. ” (She may have lied in the first piece, but she’s trying to be related, okay?)

Like any other member of Beyhive, the Spiritbox bandleader and metalhead took to Twitter yesterday (June 21) to respond to the release, tweeting: “NEW BEYONCÉ AHHHHHHHH.”

LaPlante added: “I hereby quit my job as she says to me in this song, thank you for all the support but I quit.”

Given the circumstances, we understand; giving your two weeks notice has never sounded better than the irresistible house jam – our first taste of Beyoncé Renaissance – make it to be. Queens in front, doms in the back!

Fortunately, there is no world without LaPlante in our future, as the Victoria metalcore unit will be touring with Ghost and Mastodon this fall. With Beyoncé fan Kevin Gates has also recently gone to great lengths to promise how seriously he takes his fandom.
