While She Sleeps: Raise The Flag
From a potentially game-changing new album to becoming leaders of their scene, it looks set to be a huge year for While She Sleeps.
After the most frustrating year of their career, it’d be easy for While She Sleeps to feel uncertain about getting back in the saddle. Following singer Loz Taylor’s throat surgery in December 2013, a six-month break in the midst of a prolific run of action could have finished off the momentum of a lesser band. A lesser band, however, they are most definitely not.
With a new album, Brainwashed, some new tours and endless possibilities ahead of them, this is a band very much still looking to the future. And, as Hammer discovered when we caught up with guitarist Sean Long for a chat, it’s a future that could yet prove vital to our scene.
IS IT FAIR TO SAY THAT 2014 WAS A MIXED YEAR FOR WHILE SHE SLEEPS?
“It was an insane ride of writing and, ‘What the fuck is going on?!’ We were trying to write in between getting all this shit sorted with Loz [his second surgery] and practising for the In Flames tour at the end of the year. It’s been insane.”
