While She Sleeps have revealed their new single “Silence Speaks,” which is the latest killer cut to be taken from their forthcoming third album, You Are We, set for release on April 21st via SharpTone Records. Modern metal at its finest and most explosive, the track, which got its first play on UK’s national radio as Mistajam’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1, features Oli Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon on guest vocals. It’s another reminder that While She Sleeps are one of the UK’s most exciting heavy bands and serves as a tantalising taster of what’s to come as they gear up to release the new album independent of a record label. Fans can pre-order the record now at smarturl.it/YouAreWe.

While She Sleeps were putting the finishing touches to You Are We throughout recent months, during which they were also touring with Bring Me The Horizon in no less than three different continents. This creative collaboration followed with Oli recording additional vocals for “Silence Speaks,” adding a further fervent facet to the composition.
With the help of their loyal fanbase, the band has funded the album project through Pledge Music and are currently at over 160% of their initial goal. While She Sleeps have already revealed three cuts from You Are We, in the form of the anthemic“Hurricane”, the album’s title track and the visceral social commentary of “Civil Isolation.”
Made with Carl Bown, who also produced Brainwashed, the songs that comprise You Are We are full of as much force, focus and determination as ever. This new and vital body of work will continue the band’s trajectory as one of the most inspiring, riotous and important voices in British music today, demonstrating both their continued musical evolution and their incisive social conscience. Yet while these are brutal anthems that paint a vivid picture of a post-Brexit Britain, they stand as both the most universal and most personal songs of the band’s career.
