While She Sleeps have released their fourth studio album SO WHAT? via UNFD. Today also marks the final date of a headline tour which has taken them to Asia, Europe & the UK, plus an exclusive performance at UNIFY Gathering 2019 in Australia, and has seen the band play to legions of fans across the globe. They’ll be wrapping up this first chapter of the SO WHAT? era at a sold out Roundhouse in London, complete with live choir.

“SO WHAT? is about how easily we all judge everything before we actually know anything about it,” says guitarist Mat Welsh of the album’s intent. “If we put a really elaborate title on a record with a really elaborate cover, that could give you the option of deciding what you think of it before you’ve listened to anything on it. The one thing we’re putting every bit of our creative juice into is the music.”


Recorded with producer Carl Bown, SO WHAT? is another defiant step forwards for the Sheffield band of brothers. It’s the sound of While She Sleeps reborn. “You get a taste of this new area that we’re flowing into,” explains guitarist Sean Long. “Even though it’s still really heavy, you get this twinge of what’s to come.”

While She Sleeps – SO WHAT? is out now via UNFD.
