While She Sleeps To Release New Album “So What?” In March, Premiere “Anti-Social” Video

While She Sleeps have announced that their new album “So What?” will be released on March 1. You can check out a video for the first single “Anti-Social” below:

Sean Long said the following about the album:

“We’ve let our hair down and we’ve got our bollocks out. I’m not fucking about. I’m not cutting corners. I’ve been writing like this will be my last album. ‘You Are We‘ got us to this special position and it’s given us a platform. For us, it’s like, ‘What can we do to really stick this in people’s faces? What can we put out there that we’re buzzing off?’ I don’t want to be following everyone else – I want people to follow us.”

Mat Welsh added:

“We got approached immediately by a bunch of labels, but we turned around to all of them and said, ‘The only way we’re going to do anything is if you let us release it on Sleeps Brothers, but you house that on your train, and we make the decisions behind everything.’

I fucking loved releasing ‘You Are We‘ ourselves, but at the same time, I played more on my laptop than I did on my guitar for the whole campaign.

This release is a partnership between Sleeps Brothers and Spinefarm, but no one is breathing down our necks about the record we’re making or the singles we’re putting out.”
