Sleeping With Sirens Announce New Album

Sleeping With Sirens have released some details regarding their upcoming fifth studio album; Gossip. Due out on the 22nd September via Warner Bros. Records and produced by David Bendeth, the 11 track album is available to pre-order now, digital at usual sites and physicals at this link. Check out their newest single Legends below, which is also the official song of Team USA for Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018.

“We finally captured the live experience with Bendeth, we have the production, but there’s a rawness that comes through. Musically, I feel like it’s the first Sirens record that sounds specifically like us. We took chances, experimented, and continued to do what we do best: create art. It’s something new. It has an authentic sound that we’ve been working towards all this time.” – Kellin Quinn, vocals

Fort Fest 2017 Cancellation

Bedfordshire’s Fort Fest has been cancelled due to low ticket sales, the festival, due to be held at the start of August, was about to celebrate it’s second year running. With a mixture of sounds plus small and more well known bands being part of the experience, it’s a real shame this has been the outcome.

“We are deeply saddened that we have had to cancel Fort Fest. After a very promising start last year, ticket sales have been extremely disappointing and there was no prospect of us being able to deliver the festival that we had planned or that everyone involved deserves. We would like to apologise to everyone who has bought tickets and to the bands and traders that supported Fort Fest.  Full refunds will, of course, be forthcoming this week.” – Jon Hewitt, on behalf of The Fort Records
