"My voice sounds phenomenal": While She Sleeps join us from the studio
While She Sleeps have been holed up in their own studio in Sheffield working on a new album. We found out how it’s coming along
What can you tell us about the new record?
Mat Welsh (guitar): “We’re still in the early stages of recording. It’ll be out in February but there’ll be more new music before then. The last couple of years for us have been about trying to move into as much of an independent place as possible, and we’re crowdfunding this record because we’ve had up and down experiences with labels in the past. Without our fans we’d still be just five dudes playing music in a bedroom, so we wanted to make them feel part of it. It’s theirs as much as it is ours.”
And you’ve got your own studio now?
Mat: “Yeah, about a year and half ago we got a warehouse in Sheffield and built it into a huge creative space. We thought it would be a cool idea to not only make the record ourselves, but also make the rooms that we make the record in ourselves!”
