UK band While She Sleeps will be releasing their forthcoming third album ‘You Are We‘ on April 21, 2017 in Australia via their new home UNFD. While She Sleeps have also announced they will be returning to Australia in February with Bring Me The Horizon on their rescheduled Australian tour dates as well as a mini headline tour in Sydney and Brisbane.
The band converted an empty warehouse in the heart of their native Sheffield into their own multi-purpose studio to create their upcoming album. It’s also a place where the band aim to break down the barrier even more between themselves and their fan base. The music video for the latest track from the forthcoming record ‘Hurricane’ was filmed at The Barn with many of the bands fans coming to take part in the video. “Now more than ever,” adds Sean Long (guitar), “our fans know that it’s them making all of this possible for us. The divide between artist and fan is ridiculous, because there are no fans without the artist and there’s no artist without the fans. They go hand in hand together as one absolute thing, and I really like that we can see that in play with what we’ve been doing. It’s very reassuring to see that support right in front of us.”
Made with Carl Bown, who also produced their previous 2015 album Brainwashed, the songs that comprise You Are We are full of as much force, focus and determination as ever. The likes of ‘Hurricane’ and first single ‘Civil Isolation’ continue the band’s trajectory as one of the most inspiring, riotous and important voices in British music today, demonstrating both their continued musical evolution and their incisive social conscience. Yet while these are brutal anthems that paint a vivid picture of a post-Brexit Britain, they stand as both the most universal and most personal songs of the band’s career.
