Sleeping With Sirens have been selected as the next featured artist for WWE’s NXT: LOUD. The band’s new song, “We Like it Loud,” will serve as the official theme song for NXT: TakeOver: Brooklyn. The track is taken from the band’s new album, Madness, which was released earlier this year on Epitaph Records.
“We Like It Loud” will be heard across NXT’s weekly programming (Wednesdays at 8/7 CT on WWE Network) for the next several weeks leading up to, and within, the NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn Special.
The program originally launched in May 2015, selecting Motionless In White and their single “Unstoppable.”
NXT: LOUD is a music content program uniting WWE NXT with bands and artists who are the future generation of music. The program integrates featured acts across the NXT brand and programming in an array of content including theme music for NXT specials, artist profile pieces, and additional collaborations throughout the year.
NXT Announcer Corey Graves will lend the initiative his voice and music passion as host and curator.
“NXT is more than a brand, it's a movement within our industry,” says Graves. “It's about redefining traditions, and doing it our way. It's an attitude. NXT: LOUD is our way of crossing cultures, taking kids with the same attitude and showing them something new. Building a revolution together. Sleeping With Sirens is a perfect soundtrack for this movement.”
WWE Executive VP Paul “Triple H” Levesque says, “Theme music is more than just a WWE tradition—it creates an emotion that resonates with our passionate fan base, the WWE Universe. It is core to our programming, fan experience, creation and evolution of our larger-than-life characters, and is a crucial component to NXT as we develop the next generation of WWE Superstars and Divas. NXT is LOUD, the WWE Universe is LOUD, and Sleeping with Sirens is just as LOUD. We look forward to partnering with them to make 'We Like It Loud' the official theme song of NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn.”
NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn takes place August 22 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Tickets are available via Ticketmaster.
