While She Sleeps’ 2017 has been nothing short of spectacular and 2018 is already shaping up to be another monumental year for the band as they announce a clutch of UK headline shows in February of 2018 with tickets on sale this Friday. The dates – in Bristol, Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester – will follow a sure-to-be epic gig at London’s Alexandra Palace where the band are main support to Architects on 3rd February.
Sleeps will also be supporting Architects across Europe in Jan/Feb and they’re set to round off this year with a mammoth tour supporting Trivium in the USA, followed by a special hometown headline show at the o2 Academy in Sheffield on 8th December.
2017 has seen While She Sleeps play shows in countries as far flung as Australia and China, as well as a large score of sellout shows on home soil. Plus they’ve been bringing some serious fire to some big festival sets, headlining The Pit at Reading & Leeds and slaying the likes of Hellfest in France and Graspop in Belgium. Recently, they even played a special stripped down “Sleeps Brothers” set in a church of all places.
The band’s latest album ‘You Are We’ was released direct from the band to their loyal fans in April, as While She Sleeps truly took control of their own destiny. It was a move that paid off as the record charted in the Top Ten of the UK album charts and has received a plethora of accolades to date.
