While She Sleeps have made their long-awaited return.

Earlier today, the band announced that they will be releasing their fourth studio album SO WHAT? early next year. To celebrate the forthcoming album, the band shared a heavy new song, “Anti-Social.”

SO WHAT? is set for release on March 1, 2019, and it was revealed in a press statement that the Sheffield quintet will be dropping the album through their own label, Sleeps Brothers.

The new album is set to be a follow-up to 2017’s You Are We, and it doesn’t sound like the band will be forgiving with this forthcoming release. Guitarist Sean Long said in a statement:

“We’ve let our hair down and we’ve got our bollocks out,” Long says. “I’m not fucking about. I’m not cutting corners. I’ve been writing like this will be my last album.”

Long then added:

“You Are We got us to this special position, and it’s given us a platform. For us, it’s like, ‘What can we do to really stick this in people’s faces? What can we put out there that we’re buzzing off?’ I don’t want to be following everyone else; I want people to follow us.”

Listen to “Anti-Social” below!

“Anti-Social” is taken from the band’s fourth studio album, SO WHAT? and you can preorder your copy of it here.

While She Sleeps are set to do a huge UK headlining tour, which is scheduled early next year, in order to support their new album. Joining the group is Stray From The Path and LANDMVRKS.
