“I Miss the Band”: Alanis Morissette pays tribute to her road family in new song

Alanis Morissette is missing the road in her new song, “I Miss the Band.” 

The Grammy winner offers fans a behind-the-scenes look at life on the road touring with her band, before the COVID-19 pandemic led to mass shutdowns of live events. 

The video features fast-paced clips from the stage, with the camera panning cheering fans while the band smiles as they pose in front of an arena-sized crowd.  Bus rides, rehearsal shots and Alanis and her crew pulling together for a loving photo backstage all convey the passion they have for the road. 

“I miss the band/And there’s not a day that goes by where I don’t hear our music in my head,” Alanis sings in the musical homage. 

“Deeply yearning to play live music again…the sweat, the rapture, the movement, the love…i miss seeing your faces & being with my bandmates,” she shares on Twitter. “Soon…we’ll be back together.” 

Alanis’ defining 1995 album, Jagged Little Pill, is the subject of a musical of the same name. It was the most nominated production at the 2020 Tony Awards and was named Best Musical Theatre Album at the 2021 Grammys.
