Sleeping With Sirens are back with a new song, “Cheers,” taken from their forthcoming album, Gossip, and it’s as amazing as you’d expect it’d be.
Give “Cheers” a listen below!
The band released a teaser clip last month for the “gossip,” and fans knew that it had to mean new music is on the way. They debuted their lead single “Legends,” last month, and even shared an incredible performance of the song at the 2017 APMAs!
Following the release of their last epic new song, “Empire To Ashes,” “Cheers” is proving that Gossip is shaping up to be a seriously incredible record.

The band’s forthcoming album, Gossip, is due out September 22, and is available for preorder here.
Alt Press caught up with Vocalist Kellin Quinn and guitarist Jack Fowler to talk more about the new album, describing it as both dark in both sound and lyrical content. But like all things, darkness has its natural opposite, and that’s an element that SWS never forget to include in their songwriting.
“I think [it’s about] being lost and then finding hope,” Quinn says. “It’s a dark record. It sounds dark, but there’s a hopefulness in everything. That’s always something I’ve tried to do as a vocalist. When I write about a sad topic, I always want there to be a light at the end of the tunnel.”
They explain that creating their fifth album has both lifted them up and grounded them, explaining that what fans will hear of them on this album is a more true representation of Sleeping With Sirens.
“I think we’re a completely different band as opposed to the last time you saw us,” Fowler revealed. “If you see us on this record [cycle], you’re gonna have the best night of your life and the best show [from] our band. It’s gonna make you dance, it’s gonna make you cry.”
