British Metal Powerhouse While She Sleeps Unveils “SELF HELL” Album and Intense Short Film for Latest Single “TO THE FLOWERS”

While She Sleeps, already a force to be reckoned with in the British metal scene, is gearing up to unleash their highly anticipated album, “SELF HELL,” on March 29th, promising a sonic experience like never before. The band’s approach to their latest work is evident in recent singles, the title track, and ‘DOWN’ (featuring Alex Taylor of Malevolence), showcasing a commitment to making everything bigger and more unpredictable.

The band’s latest single, ‘TO THE FLOWERS,’ embraces a maximalist ethos, seamlessly blending spoken words from philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti with a chaotic mix of screaming vocals, melodic textures, punk energy, synths, and metallic breakdowns. Guitarist Sean Long expressed the emotional depth of the track, stating, “This song means a lot to us. As much as we love a good breakdown and heavy riff, a lot of our passion lies within emotive musical pieces.”

Accompanying ‘TO THE FLOWERS’ is a captivating short film created and shot by the band themselves, matching the intensity of the song with kitchen sink realism and the cinematic atmospherics of an indie film.

Vocalist Loz Taylor added, “‘To the Flowers’ is emotional, tragic and real life. We intended to make a short film that encompasses the real emotions of relationships, grief, love, death, and pain. This will hit home.”

The band’s DIY ethos continues with “SELF HELL,” recorded at their Six Audio in Sheffield, Metropolis Studios in London, and Treehouse Studio in Chesterfield. The album explores a diverse range of genres, including symphonic music, hardcore, synth-rock, and metal, all while maintaining While She Sleeps’ ability to create confident, stadium-prepared anthems.

“SELF HELL” is available for pre-order, offering physical formats such as neo orange vinyl and black/white swirl vinyl, with vinyl copies and bundles purchased from their official store including a signed photo.

To celebrate the album release, While She Sleeps has confirmed Record Store signings and stripped back shows in April across the UK, with further touring plans for 2024, including Download Festival and additional festivals in Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, a North American tour as special guests to Architects, and select headline shows in France and Poland.
