While She Sleeps – ‘Sleeps Society’ Album Review


Who knew this pandemic would produce such great rock and metal music? With Chart topping albums from Biff Clyro, Bring Me The Horizon, You Me At Six, Architects and YUNGBLUD, the UK rock and metal scene has a surprisingly strong pulse that’s putting the world to rights throughout this pandemic. One such UK band that’s doing their bit for the alternative community is Sheffield’s own While She Sleeps. Unsatisfied with how the music industry operates, the band launched Sleeps Society, a Patreon bases subscription service, which seeks to connect the band with their fans more directly in anticipation of their new album of the same name.

Overall, Sleeps Society finds While She Sleeps at their most experimental for better and for worse. While She Sleeps underused Simon Neil on ‘Nervous’ and made several lacklustre and/or confusing decisions in the albums second half, on the other hand, they did put Deryck Whibley to good use on ‘No Defeat For The Brave’ and experimented beautifully on such tracks as ‘Systematic’ and ‘Sleeps Society’. Although this album doesn’t reach the heights of While She Sleep’s best album, ‘You Are We’, however, boasting such songs as ‘You Are All You Need’, Sleeps Society looks to be the beginning of a new era for metal music and I can’t wait to see where it leads.

Sleeps Society is OUT TOMORROW to buy and stream and tickets for their UK Tour are available NOW
