While She Sleeps are a metal-core band from Sheffield, signed to Search and Destroy Records. After touring the world in 2015, the guys return to the UK and came back to their home town to review their year.
They wanted to discuss on camera how far they'd come in the past 12 months, in contrast to a few years ago - from performing in front of a couple of hundred people, to now multiplying that figure to thousands through a headline tour in the UK and Europe. They've had a great year – they performed at Reading and Leeds festival in August, released their second 'proper' record, Brainwashed, and toured all over the world. We went to film the boys to get their perspective on it all.
Following their sell-out Sheffield homecoming gig, Mat Welsh, Lawrence Taylor, Sean Long, Aaran McKenzie and Adam Savage got together to reflect on a hectic 2015. We recorded them in an informal environment, relaxing on sofas and enjoying a casual drink together, with close up shots of each individual, talking candidly about the year they've all had.
The video starts up with footage from a While She Sleeps gig, showing the band in action, along with clips of their passionate fans immersed in the music. The band's music plays in the background of the film, as the group chat. These are our 65 second highlights, coupled with footage from their sell-out Christmas gig at the Leadmill, Sheffield. We're looking forward to seeing your success continue in the future, lads!
