While She Sleeps

While She Sleeps
Played at Graspop Metal Meeting
2011 / 2012 / 2017 / 2019






Bullet for My Valentine, Bring Me the Horizon, Architects… the UK has always been a leading exporter of metalcore. While She Sleeps are on their way to ranking in the same category as the above-mentioned bands. Formed in 2006 in Sheffield, they burst upon the scene with ‘This Is the Six’ (2009), a collection of heavy-hitting tracks which, apart from an isolated chant-along chorus, makes no concessions to the seductive call of the mainstream. They bagged Kerrang’s best newcomer award in 2012 and deservedly so: their second outing ‘Brainwashed’ (2015) was a step up, in terms of reach as well as in quality. They were last here in 2017 shortly after the release of ‘You Are We’ when they ruled the Jupiler Stage. Two years on they’re ready for bigger and better things. (#GMM19)
