While She Sleeps Announce North American Tour With Bullet For My Valentine

UK metal band While She Sleeps has announced they will be joining Bullet For My Valentine and Asking Alexandria on the British Invasion tour. The band will be opening for both bands on the North American tour starting February 2nd through March 7th. Watch the band’s announcement video below:

While She Sleeps recently released the music video for their title track “Brainwashed”. Watch the video below:

The band will be on tour supporting their sophomore album Brainwashed, which was recorded by Carl Bown (Trivium), mixed by Colin Richardson (Bullet For My Valentine, As I Lay Dying) and mastered by Grammy Award winner Ted Jensen. The album is available on iTunes and Google Play. Buy Brainwashed this week digitally for $7.99, normally $9.99.

Sheffield, England’s While She Sleeps have been turning heads ever since their EP release The North Stands For Nothing (2010), and their presence in the rock and metal scene has grown ever stronger since the release of their debut studio album This Is The Six (2012).  Their debut album charted at #2 in the UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart and in support the band stormed the live scene, performing at festivals such as Reading and Leeds, Bestival, Rock Am Ring, Rock Im Park, Greenfield, Graspop, Summerbreeze, Soundwave Australia and the US Vans Warped Tour.  In 2014 the band played the main stage at Download Festival and toured the rest of the year with Crossfaith and In Flames.  While She Sleeps have battled back to peak fighting form after work on their sophomore album (Brainwashed) was halted when lead vocalist Lawrence "Loz" Taylor was forced to seek career-saving surgery on his vocal chords in 2014.

Brainwashed’s fifteen songs are a terrifying force to be reckoned with, a barrage of belligerent sound that straddles and combines a variety of genres the band would prefer you to just call “alternative rock”. Musically, it’s a sophisticated step up from their debut full-length, one that’s catchy and confrontational in equal measure. More involved and intricate than anything they’ve done before, each song is a master craft in complex yet accessible writing, layer after layer of sound pummelling both your synapses and your heartstrings.
