I’m super excited to catch While She Sleeps when they make a stop at Amsterdam Bar & Hall in Saint Paul on Tuesday, March 3rd.
While She Sleeps are an English metalcore band from Sheffield. Formed in 2006, the group consists of vocalist Lawrence Taylor, guitarists Sean Long and Mat Welsh, bassist Aaran McKenzie and drummer Adam Savage. They are currently signed to their own label Sleeps Brothers in the UK and in collaboration with Spinefarm Records in the US and UNFD in Australia. They have released three EPs, And This Is Just the Start, Split and The North Stands for Nothing, and four studio albums, This Is the Six, Brainwashed, You Are We and So What?. They received the Best British Newcomer award at the Kerrang! Awards 2012. The group has maintained the same line-up since its formation, with vocalist Taylor being the only bandmate who is not an original member. Despite this, he has still appeared on every release apart from the group’s first two EPs.
He Is Legend is a personal favorite of mine and they will be joining While She Sleeps. With their almost southern-metal sound and always exciting and energetic live show, this is a band that you can’t afford to miss.
Savage Hands will kick the night off.
Tickets are still available HERE!
