While She Sleeps Sign To UNFD; Announce New Album + Aussie Tour Dates

While She Sleeps

Three years after their scene-stirring debut (This Is The Six) dropped in 2012, Metalcore maestros While She Sleeps absolutely blew us away with last year’s Brainwashed. If the age-old adage “third time’s the charm” is true, then, it should go without saying that the British quintet’s third album is going to destroy the world as we know it.

You Are We was announced today as While She Sleeps’ first release as part of Australia’s definitive metalcore crew, UNFD – the new record is set to hit shelves on April 21st, and to get the hype train moving at full speed, they’ve coupled the announcement with an eruptive new banger in “Hurricane”.

To record You Are We, the band flipped an empty warehouse in their native Sheffield into their own multi-purpose studio.

“There’s always been a very DIY aspect to this band,” says vocalist Lawrence Taylor, “so going it alone a bit more now just reiterates that to everyone. The idea with this new space is that it gives us a lot more creative space. There’s a studio and live room, and we have space now to achieve what we want to achieve as a band. This place is going to house us for a good few years.”

A short while before the album drops, though, the boys will make their way Down Under for a short span of dates, half in support of Bring Me The Horizon (who are set to roll through Melbourne and Adelaide to make up for their cancelled September shows) and the other half in the headliner slot.

Dates for the Sydney and Brisbane headliners – going down on February 9th and 10th, respectively – are on sale Wednesday, with the BMTH shows already trucking along.

Tickets on sale Wednesday, November 23rd @ 12pm via the links below!
