MUSIC NEWS: While She Sleeps Announce First Ever Vinyl Release Of Debut Album ‘This Is The Six’
While She Sleeps will release their debut album, This Is The Six, on vinyl for the first time in September. The release coincides with the band’s biggest headline show of their career, at London’s Alexandra Palace.
“Stepping into a ‘real’ studio to record your first full-length album is a feeling I’ll never forget,” says guitarist Mat Welsh. “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.”
This Is The Six will be pressed on 180 gram white vinyl and packaged in a gatefold sleeve, due for release on 22nd September 2023 via Music For Nations. Pre-order your copy HERE.
