While She Sleeps Discuss New Music In New Interview


Metalcore band While She Sleeps have had some massive success since the release of their latest record “You Are We”. While their touring schedule continues with shows planned with Architects early next year, the band has had some time to work on some new material already. Guitarist Mat Welsh shared this in a new interview for Rock Sound’s podcast. Here’s what he shared:

“I’m sorting the warehouse out now and Sean [Long, guitarist]’s literally just about to turn up. We’ve actually gutted the studio and we’re giving it a fresh lick. It’s the first break we’ve got since we got the warehouse and it’s the first time that we’ve not got a specific task to do, so we’re like, ‘Let’s go. If we’re feeling creative, let’s be able to use the space.’

“We drove to London on Monday to do our visas and, during the journey, the idea for something that I cannot tell you about to do with what might be the next record sort of came to life. We all just got incredibly excited by this absolutely fucking bonkers idea that we’ve come up with.

“And yeah hold me to that! But yeah we all got super excited at this thing. For me it was one of the first moments since ‘You Are We’ was released where I was like, ‘What next?’. Once the record comes out, I like to just ride it for a bit, I don’t want to push myself into feeling creative, I’ll feel creative when it comes and it sort of came the other day and it was a very exciting feeling!

“It’s mental. If and when it happens, I hope you remember this conversation and you’ll be like, ‘The fucking madmen!'”
