While She Sleeps Announce New Album “Sleeps Society”, Premiere Video For The Title Track

While She Sleeps have announced that they will be releasing their new album “Sleeps Society“ on April 16, 2021. You can find a video for the title track below:

With this news, the band have also launched a “Sleeps Society” fan community via Patreon. The group said the following about that:

“After 14 years as a band & in the ever-changing climate that is the music industry, we are embarking on a new chapter of our life as While She Sleeps.

Our goal is to create a sustainable model for artists & creatives, to break from the traditional industry mold by building and developing a true interdependence between the band & fans.

With the future of live performances uncertain, the Sleeps Society will enable a secure existence for WSS and gives us the opportunity to stay connected with our fanbase, developing new ways to provide for our supporters and fill the void left without live music.

In these uncertain times, this is the difference between life & death for the future of WSS. We aren’t prepared to be another band forced to give up simply be-cause the system isn’t designed to support the artist.

The idea behind the society was created after over a decade’s experience of this rollercoaster ride that is the music industry. Having overcome mountains of hardship & financial debt, it feels important to share what we’ve learned along the way with those who are drawn to a similar path as ours.

This model will provide a new route for upcoming artists and bands similar to us, using our knowledge and guidance to help achieve a realistic career in the creative industries.

The society will ask a membership fee, ranging in different tiers of support. These contributions directly fund the creation and survival of WSS. The cost will be repaid to the fans with a plethora of informative, exciting & engaging videos, as well as special events to get involved with and many exclusives to members.

We’ll be sharing full album guitar & drum play-throughs, a tutorial series for songwriting, studio production, vocal techniques, art & branding, self-management, videography & much more. There’ll be an in-depth look into making the forthcoming album & live streamed studio sessions where members can help make decisions in the writing stages of songs.

Members will get early access to tour tickets, exclusive merchandise, warehouse meet-ups, events & secret ‘members only’ shows. And that’s just scratching the surface of what we’ll be offering members through the Society.

Our aim is to deliver a ‘too good to be true’ level of rewards for the prices we are asking our supporters to pay, using our individual skills to develop and create entertaining and informative videos, tutorials, ideas and more for our members. This is us sharing our knowledge and experience in the hope that other artists can take this model and use it for their own.

With the monthly support of our fans, the band will be able to break free from the traditional music industry method of ‘cash advances’, where artists are essentially borrowing large sums of money and giving up the rights to their songs, only to spend the years that follow in debt which oftentimes becomes insurmountable and crippling.

The Sleeps Society ensures a solid future for WSS & creates a new model of survival for artists and bands alike. We will be delivering the highest level of fan involvement and fostering a symbiotic relationship as the Sleeps Society becomes an integral part of Sleeps’ existence. – While She Sleeps“

While She Sleeps have premiered a hologram video for their new song “Fakers Plague.“ With this news, the group have also announced some special “Fakers Plague Experience” events, which are being held at Sleeps Brothers Warehouse in Sheffield, UK. The band commented:

“This song is a celebration of the end of an extremely difficult personal time within While She Sleeps. We all had a lot of anger building up within us and it was amazing for us to come together and express it through music. Everyone in life has a beautiful side and an ugly side, its how we all react and deal with these polarities of life that makes us human. No one is perfect and we certainly aren’t. Let’s embrace it together.”

While She Sleeps Premiere “I’ve Seen It All” Music Video

While She Sleeps have premiered a new video for their song “I’ve Seen It All.” This track is from the band’s latest album “So What?.“

The group commented:

“We’ve spent our entire lives traveling the world and absorbing experiences at a rate we really could never have dreamed of or imagined. Unbeknownst to us there has been an underlying truth to this unconventional fast track of experiencing life. That is simply we can enjoy so many of life’s pleasures and drink them all in at an incredibly fast and loud rate, traveling the world at 1000 miles an hour watching life go by in an exhilarating way.

Or we can take it in slow, staying close to home with family and friends in a calm and collective way, breathing in each day as it comes with a steady step. Your life candle can burn out in a big bright flash or it can be a slow calm burner. There really is no right way. From how we move through life we’ve learnt that there is nothing “out there” for you to attain that’s going to make you any more of an amazing person than you already are.

Whilst of course fulfilling your dreams is very important, how you are right now in this moment is absolutely perfect, and you don’t need to look out into the future to be who you really are.”
