While She Sleeps' third album, You Are We, has definitely had us talking and speculating since the band announced that it would be released throughout the help of an album back in September.

"After 10 years of dealing with the ups and downs of the music industry we have decided to continue our journey independently and self release our third full length album, available now for pre-order on PledgeMusic," the band says on their PledgeMusic page. "All money raised goes directly towards funding the the new album, artwork, music videos, touring and everything that keeps our band alive."

Fans embraced this change wholeheartedly and at the time of writing, fans have funded 166% of the goal. Over 2,500 people have pledged money towards the release of this new album along with supporting While She Sleeps.

Even the band's studio where they're recording the album was converted by the band from a warehouse in the middle of Sheffield, England.

“[We] spent like a year building it,” says Mat Welsh, who helped finish the studio’s electrical, sound proofing and interior structural work last January. “Now we have a fully working studio, and it’s kind of a nice feeling to be recording an album where we’re not just making the music, we actually built the rooms that we’re making the music in. It casts a very positive shadow on everything that we’re doing.” The band even added a kitchen and bedrooms so they could live in the warehouse throughout recording sessions.

Check out "Silence Speaks" here at 30:45, along with hearing how the band recorded the track with Sykes.

Sykes has talked highly of the band since the song was released through a series of tweets. Check those out below.
