While She Sleeps unveil new details for ‘You Are We’

WHILE SHE SLEEPS have unveiled new details surrounding their upcoming third studio record!

The upcoming album, titled You Are We, is the third full-length record from the Sheffield outfit and is scheduled to be released in April next year. The big news surrounding the upcoming record is that the band have gone independent for the release, looking to crowd-funding to help fund the record’s creation, a goal they easily met. You Are We was recorded at the band’s new home studio, There’s always been a very DIY aspect to this band,” explains vocalist Lawrence ‘Loz’ Taylor, “so going it alone a bit more now just reiterates that to everyone. The Barn was a very important place for us – it’s where we grew as friends and it was where we hung out and could be creative – so 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.”

Alongside the announcement of the record’s title, the band have also released a new single and music video titled Hurricane which was filmed at the band’s DIY studio involving patrons of the PledgeMusic campaign. Speaking about the video, Loz Taylor says, “That was absolutely crazy,” beams Taylor. “I’m still aching from that! But the special thing is that every kid who came down for the video shoot actually helped make the album happen. And to that extent they made this warehouse capable of living.”
