Back in late February, Armor For Sleep surprised fans with news of a 15-year anniversary tour for their beloved 2005 album, What To Do When You Are Dead. Featuring favorites such as “Car Underwater” and “The Truth About Heaven,” the AFS tour would mark their first since 2015.
Though there won’t be live shows anytime soon, lovers of the 2005 staple can find some relief, however. The band announced a special anniversary edition of What To Do When You Are Dead via Equal Vision Records featuring unreleased B-sides and demos.
Get ready for the arrival of the anniversary vinyl and the promise of future shows by seeing if you can remember all the lyrics to “Car Underwater.”

As mentioned above, the 15th anniversary edition of What To Do When You Are Dead is packed with even more music for fans to enjoy. The band added demos of previously released album tracks, including “Car Underwater,” “The Truth About Heaven” and “Stay On The Ground.”
They also included demos off their 2003 debut full-length, Dream To Make Believe (“Dream to Make Believe,” “All Warm,” “Slip Like Space”). Going beyond rough cuts from past albums, Armor For Sleep also unearthed additional B-sides in “Who’s Gonna Lie To You,” “Always A Wish,” “Curse Into A Blessing,” “Standing Alone” and “Never Had The Chance.”
