While She Sleeps announce new album “SELF HELL” & release title track
The new While She Sleep era is here, ahead of their biggest headline show at Alexandra Palace later this month, the band have now announced the release date of their next album “SELF HELL” on the 15th March 2024 and released the video for the title track. The song is an in your face anthem with massive ear worm melodic hooks, big riffs, sweeping leads and that huge guitar and synth sound that they have honed in on from the last record. It’s a triumphant return that pushes the boundaries of what to expect from the band while still keeping that familiar While She Sleeps grit.
In a press release the upcoming album is said to draw upon “a far wider palette of influences to create a sonic collage of each member’s musical passions, SELF HELL feels like a second debut album from a band who have become such a vital force over the past decade. This incarnation of While She Sleeps is uncompromisingly unpredictable, the riffs are still granite heavy, but this album sees them drawing upon more diverse influences such as Aphex Twin, Gorillaz, Bicep, The Prodigy and Kendrick Lamar.”
Guitarist Sean Long says, “The name of the album is the foundation of how we view ourselves and the world. Everyone has a subjective experience like no other. Yet the constant that binds us IS the differences between us and the fact that we are all suffering in our own way. Don’t be too quick to judge and demonise, your time will come for redemption or damnification.
“We’ve been drawing inspiration from an array of misfit artists far from where you would usually pigeonhole While She Sleeps. Each member has brought in a different perspective of inspiration so far apart in genre that it has left us with a very odd and satisfying sonic. While She Sleeps will continue to keep the world guessing on what we will do next. Not only for the fans but this is a spiritual venture that we have to keep alive, moving, and constantly in flux. We do this by scaring ourselves with things we are not supposed to do. Every. Single. Day.”
