Ahead of their biggest headline show to date at Alexandra Palace next month, While She Sleeps have revealed that their debut album ‘This Is The Six’ will receive its first ever vinyl release.
With the Sheffield metalcore heroes set to take to the stage in front of a crowd of 10,000 people on September 23, While She Sleeps will give their debut album ‘This Is The Six’ its first vinyl release the day before they headline London’s Alexandra Palace.
Released via Music For Nations on September 22, the album will be pressed on 180 gram white vinyl and packaged in a gatefold sleeve.
The vinyl is now available to pre-order, and you can see it in all its glory below:
The album that saw While She Sleeps begin to fulfil the immense potential that they had demonstrated with their previous EP ‘The North Stands For Nothing’, 'This Is The Six’ is home to many tracks that remain fan favourites to this day, including 'Seven Hills’, the title track, 'Our Courage, Our Cancer’ and ‘False Freedom’.
Reflecting on his memories of making the album over a decade on from its release, guitarist Mat Welsh has said:
“Stepping into a ‘real’ studio to record your first full-length album is a feeling I’ll never forget. The writing process was a blur, a mix of excitement and anxiety on how to follow ‘The North Stands For Nothing’ EP, with the first full-length album, released on a major label and on a level we’d never experienced before. We met with Carl Bown (who we are still working with 12 years later) and Colin Richardson to make the record, they had a history of amazing albums.
We threw everything we had into it, with no boundaries. Writing like our lives depended on it. We’ve always been searching to create music that fills our own personal void, the music we’re searching for but can’t find. I feel like we achieved that, it sounded like the five of us and this collection of music has made us who we are. It doesn’t sound like anyone else and it’s an essential part of why we’re still here today. After twelve years it’s really special for us to finally welcome it to the vinyl collection, as an integral part of our history.”
While She Sleeps will play a very special show at London’s Alexandra Palace on September 23 – limited tickets remain.
