While She Sleeps Release New Single ‘To The Flowers’ Alongside Breathtaking Video

While She Sleeps have shared the latest cut from their forthcoming ‘SELF HELL’ album, with new track ‘To The Flowers’ arriving with a sensational video.

‘SELF HELL’ is set to land March 15 and has already been prefaced by the exceptionally punchy title track and the Malevolence-featuring ‘DOWN’.

‘TO THE FLOWERS’ continues to take things to a higher plane, opening with spoken words from the philosopher and spiritual leader Jiddu Krishnamurti. 

What’s more, it arrives with one of the most sensational music video releases so far this year, which embodies some of the track’s heightened atmospherics in a way that’s cut like an indie film – have a watch and a listen below.

Speaking of the track and the understandable impact it’s had on the band, guitarist Sean Long has said:

“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. 

“This song has nearly brought us all to tears multiple times simply because it touches something in us that we hold very dear. A pain we all know and have felt down to our deepest core. 

“The essence of our personal pain expressed in music is what the band is all about. Talking about the things we know are difficult but necessary. The working title was called “radiohead” and that should help understand the feeling it gave us when writing it. 

“This contains the “double whammy” that I stumbled across just before the song was finished. It went insanely viral when I posted it online so I just had to get it in the song. People have been saying it’s one of the greatest lead guitar parts of all time, I’ll take it.”

On the album as a whole and its title selection, Sean has added: 

“The name of the album is the foundation of how we view ourselves and the world. Everyone has a subjective experience like no other. 

“Yet the constant that binds us IS the differences between us and the fact that we are all suffering in our own way. 

“Don’t be too quick to judge and demonise, your time will come for redemption or damnification.”

While She Sleeps have also confirmed Record Store signings and stripped back shows in April.
