WHILE SHE SLEEPS are from Sheffield, England & formed together in 2006.
This is the title-track to their forthcoming album: “Sleep Society” which is due out on April 16, 2021. With the announcement of the album also comes a new concept of an entire fan-based platform surrounding it dubbed: The Sleep Society!
A statement issued by the band explains their effort:
“Our goal is to create a sustainable model for artists & creatives, to break from the traditional industry mold by building and developing a true interdependence between the band & fans.
With the future of live performances uncertain, the Sleeps Society will enable a secure existence for WSS and gives us the opportunity to stay connected with our fanbase. Developing new ways to provide for our supporters and fill the void left without live music. In these uncertain times this is the difference between life & death for the future of WSS. We aren’t prepared to be another band forced to give up simply because the system isn’t designed to support the artist.”
“The idea behind the society was created after our 14 year rollercoaster of industry experience. Overcoming mountains of hardship & financial debt it feels important to share the knowledge and help advise others who are drawn to a similar path as ours. This model will provide a new route for upcoming artists and bands similar to us, using our knowledge and guidance to help achieve a realistic career in the creative industries.”
