Sleeping with Sirens are coming back down under in 2018, touring their latest album Gossip. Last time the band were here, back in 2015, they sold out their entire Australia tour – showing just how loved they are down here.
Sleeping with Sirens are an alternative rock/metalcore band from Florida USA and have been making tunes together since 2009, rising to fame with the success of their song ‘If I’m James Dean, You’re Audrey Hepburn’ from their 2010 debut album, With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear.
Over the years they have created a diverse range of music, from ballad style songs to more traditional punk. Recently the bands song Legends served as the theme song for Team U.S.A.’s at the Winter Olympics.
Sleeping with Sirens are known for front man Kellin Quinn’s high vocal range, with soul striking vocals alongside catchy riffing. Sleeping with Sirens are also a band that connects people through their music, using Quinn’s vocals to create an intimate environment for fans in all their music; from the slower ballads to more up-tempo beats.
Their latest album, Gossip, contains many of the elements they are known for, and it has been called their boldest, brightest and best album yet. Of Gossip Kellin Quinn says, “It has an authentic sound that we’ve been working towards all this time.”. The album is the result of ten years of making music, heading towards a unique sound that belongs solely to Sleeping with Sirens, and it shows in the music.
Ultimately, the risks yield Sleeping With Sirens’ boldest, brightest, and best work to date.
“No matter what anyone says, I want to encourage listeners to take risks of their own,” Kellin leaves off. “Our band took a chance. We’re going to back it. That’s all you can do as an artist. This is my diary. It’s who I am.”
The Gossip World tour will see Sleeping with Sirens head to Australia and New Zealand at the end of April for this leg, before heading over to Europe to finish the tour.
You can catch Sleeping with Sirens at Melbourne’s Festival Hall on Sunday April 22nd. Tickets via mjrpresents.com
