The band released their first EP the following year, which debuted at No. 17 on the Billboard Top 200 charts and sold over 17,000 copies the first week. It included three new songs, as well as acoustic versions of two songs from their debut album. A music video for “Roger Rabbit” was released, which seemed to soften up the young band, but a few weeks later they dropped a heavy single called “Dead Walker Texas Ranger” as a Halloween special.

The band were picking up commercial success as they entered the studio to record their third full-length album, which was completed in a rather speedy manner. This was their last album with Rise Records, and it was produced by Cameron Mizell, who produced their debut. The album debuted at No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and sold around 60,000 copies the first week. “Low” was their first single off the album, and their second, “Alone,” had a guest appearance from Machine Gun Kelly.

In fact, Feel featured many guest vocals, including Fronz (Attila), Shayley Bourget (ex-Of Mice & Men) and Matty Mullins (Memphis May Fire), who appeared in the music video for “Congratulations.”

Later that year, the band announced the departure of guitarist Jesse Lawson, who had a desire to spend more time with his family while beginning a new musical journey.

Nick Martin (Underminded, formerly of Cinematic Sunrise and D.R.U.G.S.) filled in on the European leg of the headlining tour and eventually became an official member of the band.

Sleeping With Sirens performed at the 2014 Alternative Press Music Awards.
