WHILE SHE SLEEPS announce Sheffield Christmas show
They will also support Architects at London’s Alexandra Palace in Feb
New video ‘Steal The Sun’:
Having already played shows in countries as far flung as Australia and China this year, as well as selling out a plethora of shows on home soil and absolutely shredding their headline slot on The Pit stage at Reading & Leeds Festivals this weekend, While She Sleeps have announced a special one-off hometown gig on 8th December at The o2 Academy in Sheffield. They’ve also been announced as main support to Architects at London’s Alexandra Palace on 3rd Feb. While She Sleeps’ worldwide touring schedule rides on in the meantime as they’re set to head out to the USA as support to Trivium on their Oct-Dec tour.
The latest single from Sleeps is the incendiary ‘Steal The Sun’, the music video for which has already racked up hundreds of thousands of views since its release last week. The track is taken from the band’s Top Ten, self-released album ‘You Are We’.
2017 has seen While She Sleeps make it their mission to bring the truly heartfelt and socially conscious music of ‘You Are We’ to far flung corners of the world, as well as across their home country. Shows have included the recent Asian dates and tours in Australia, Europe and the UK with a tour supporting Trivium and Arch Enemy in North America still to come. While She Sleeps are one of the most dedicated and inspirational bands in the UK and the physical connection between band and fans in person at the gigs they play is paramount.
