To celebrate the release of the new album 'Self Hell', While She Sleeps return to Kingston to play a stripped back set at St John's Church.

In a strange way, this feels like a second debut, we have the same excitement and nervousness around releasing it, like it’s the first step of the band's career. Our youthful inspirations have taken the forefront on this record. We find the scene that we’re associated with overcrowded, diluted, and for the most part uninspiring. This isn’t an admission of some cocky attitude towards our ‘superior’ music, more so that we’ve been drawing inspiration from an array of misfit artists far from where you would usually pigeonhole While She Sleeps rather than the typical metalcore movement that surrounds heavy music. Each member has brought in a different perspective of inspiration so far apart in genre that it has left us with a very odd and satisfying sonic. To name a few, Kendrick Lamar, Aphex Twin, Prodigy, Fat Boy Slim, Limp Bizkit, Radiohead, Gorillaz, Bicep, Rammstein, AFI, Janes Addiction, Placebo, Deafheaven, Alice In Chains.

On past Sleeps records the weight of the writing process rested with only a few members. Self Hell is a reimagined version of the band where the combination of all of our childhood inspirations has resurfaced and animated this whole album. We have found an incredibly powerful and creative way to make everyone’s essence and vision find a path in each song. This has turned the music into a free-spirited collage of each member's desires and ideas thus creating a real-life musical fusion that has kept this entire process alive from start to finish.
