UK, Sheffield-based metal powerhouse WHILE SHE SLEEPS release their third studio album titled »You Are We«, today through Arising Empire.
WHILE SHE SLEEPS converted an empty warehouse in the heart of their native Sheffield into their own multipurpose studio to create their new album “You Are We”. It’s not the first time they’ve had their own space – 2010’s debut EP “The North Stands For Nothing” was recorded at a home studio called The Barn – but with this new space, which was built with the band’s own money, they’ve taken things to the next level.
“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.”
