Limited White Vinyl
The Sheffield metalcore heroes now go back to where it all began with the release of their debut album This Is The Six on vinyl for the first time via Music For Nations. Originally released in 2012, This Is The Six saw While She Sleeps begin to fulfil the immense potential that they had demonstrated with their previous EP ‘The North Stands For Nothing’. Infusing their visceral, ferocious metal and hardcore roots with an innate ability to appeal to a broader audience, the record set the band on the path to where they are today. They subsequently toured with the likes of Architects, Parkway Drive and Asking Alexandria, and won the prestigious Kerrang! Award for Best British Newcomer. Numerous tracks from the album remain fan favourites to this day, including ‘Seven Hills’, the title track, ’Our Courage, Our Cancer’ and ‘False Freedom’.
The line-up that recorded This Is The Six remains the same as it is today: Lawrence Taylor (vocals), Sean Long (guitar), Mat Welsh (guitar), Aaran McKenzie (bass) and Adam Savage (drums). To mark its 10th anniversary, While She Sleeps announce a special vinyl release of their much-celebrated album, This Is The Six. A critically acclaimed record in the band’s discography, the album also marks a significant milestone in their career. Originally releasing what is their second record in 2012, the album served as a defining moment for the band’s progress, with its 12 tracks propelling them to the forefront of the UK metalcore scene and garnering them widespread recognition at home and abroad for their raw energy and uncompromising sound. An album with a legacy and sonic integrity still firmly intact, it remains the white whale in fan’s vinyl collections, and this release marks the first time it's pressed and available on vinyl to fill those gaps. An early album that points to both their early successes and their enduring impact as a band continually at the top table of the global metal scene, the band are still actively ploughing their own furrow and reaching new heights.
