Sleeping With Sirens are renowned as a post-hardcore band that hailis from Orlando, Florida. Members who were formerly associated with other bands such as For All We Know, Broadway and We Are Defiance formed to make the Sleeping With Sirens that we all know and love in 2009. Ever since then, they have been busy producing top quality music for their fans.
The group is known for its collective creativity but especially because of their leader Kellin Quinn, whose versatile vocal range is something that defines the sole and prime identity of the band. The band are presently signed under the label Rise Records, and have two complete albums and an acoustic EP in their growing discography.
The band is known for experimenting with the different genres such as screamo and emo, and combining them with post-hardcore elements. In addition to leading man Kellin Quinn, the other members of the group include Justin Hills, Gabe Barham, Jesse Lawson, Jack Fowler, but just like most bands, a couple of founding members dropped out along the way.
The band boasts a huge following who have been a consistent support for the band and are easy to spot as the most loyal fans fly the flag of their favourite bands with their band merchandise.
Their debut album, With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear,was released on March 23, 2010 and debuted at number 7 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers chart, and at number 36 of Top Independent Albums. It was on April 7, 2011 that the band released the first single off their new album “Do It Now Remember It Later”. However, later in that same month they released their next single “Fire”. It was a year later that the band was ready to release their second album “Let’s Cheer To This” on May 10.
On June 26, 2012 the band released their first Acoustic EP, “If You Were a Movie, This Would Be Your Soundtrack” which gave them the chance to give their fans something different. On October 21, 2012, Sleeping With Sirens released a new single called “Dead Walker Texas Ranger” as a Halloween special track.
In January 2013, the band made an entry to the studio to record their follow up “Let’s Cheer To This” with a predicted release date of mid-2013. On April 23, 2013, the band released a new single called “Low” and revealed the new album’s title was “Feel” with a release date of June 4, 2013. In support of the new album, the band will be performing on main stage at the Vans Warped Tour 2013. On May 21, 2013, the band released the second single from Feel, “Alone” Featuring Machine Gun Kelly.
Sleeping With Sirens new album, Feel, is the post-hardcore band’s first release since their thriving acoustic EP “If You Were A Movie, This Would Be Your Soundtrack” just last year. The album rebounds back to their original and general band’s pop-hardcore style, while certain tracks do bend off to various creative dimensions, especially the tracks containing collaborations. Up to their standard, Sleeping With Sirens’ Feel is unbelievably captivating and musically pleasing to the ear.
There are the same powerful, penetrating belts and the positive riffs found in the band’s previous songs; if anything, the sound appears to be more honed than before. If compared to their previous work, Feel has apparently showed an improvement and a bold attempt as a distinct matter to differentiate themselves as the most prominent of post-hardcore bands.
