Formed in 2006, While She Sleeps is an English metalcore band from Sheffield, England. As of today, their third studio album, You Are We, is available for purchase. Vocalist Lawrence Taylor, guitarists Sean Long and Mat Welsh, bassist Aaran McKenzie and drummer Adam Savage have been working hard for the release of this album. The majority of them had been “best mates since school”, and had been in several bands before While She Sleeps. While She Sleeps is currently signed to three separate record companies: Search and Destroy Records in the UK, SharpTone Records in the USA, and UNFD in Australia. They have two other albums out, This Is The Six and Brainwashed, in addition to one mini-album, The North Stands For Nothing. They also received the Best British Newcomer award at the Kerrang! Awards in 2012.


In early 2016, While She Sleeps announced that they were starting their new studio album. On July 29th, they said that they had begun recording in their brand new studio. They released a single, ‘Civil Isolation’, on September 4th. The next single, ‘Hurricane’, was released on November 20th, as well at a statement revealing the album’s name. More recently, on February 23rd, they released the single ‘Silence Speaks’, featuring Bring Me The Horizon frontman, Oliver Sykes.


The album was released early this morning, along with a statement. “This move was one of the most exciting things we’ve ever done as a band, proving that everything usually described as the ‘right’ way of doing things, isn’t always the right way for you. We are so proud of this album, and we are so proud of you. All of you have just brought this album to life and set it in stone as the most beautiful album name that has been proven by its own meaning. You – Are -We”.
