Following the launch of the band’s new era along with the announcement of their fifth studio album ‘Sleeps Society’, metalcore powerhouses While She Sleeps have made their 2021 debut with their incredibly powerful new single “You Are All You Need” along with an insane brand new music video to go with it.
The five piece Sheffield natives manage to stay true to their distinctive sound with this track, with intricate synth effects and overall production quality on the single along with frontman Lawrence Taylor’s absolutely beautiful vocals; it makes it a perfect set up for the upcoming 11-track release (which includes features with Deryck Whibley of Sum 41 and Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro). The meaning behind the track is one of acceptance; with a totally badass concept that lets us all feel like we don’t need approval or validation from anyone or anything as long as we’re doing what we need to do.
The release of the music video is nothing short of phenomenal- as it’s an explosion of color and almost psychedelic aesthetic pairs perfectly with the meaning of the single itself along with being a brilliant contrast to the current state of the world today.
Considering the release of the singles that we’ve gotten so far, it is without a doubt that While She Sleeps is going to deliver a stellar new era and we can’t wait to see what they have up their sleeve for us.
Commenting on the new track, guitarist Sean Long said-
“We somehow managed to inject enough personal inspiration from each member for it to completely embody ‘the Sleeps sound’ with ease. We are always trying to express a certain kind of emotion or internal insight and sometimes you really hit the nail on the head, expressing it how you imagined, and other times you miss it completely. Well, this time we hit it dead on, with no room for speculation. The song says it how it is and reminds us to stop looking outwards for approval and validation. The video is a color explosion from start to finish and, with the current state of this dull, bleak world, we think it’s going to be the color everyone needs to illuminate their spirits, even if it’s only for three minutes.”
“You Are All You Need” is available on all streaming platforms and ‘Sleeps Society’ is set for release on April 16th, 2021.
