Sleeping With Sirens was one of this year’s jaw-dropping discoveries for me. For those of you that follow this blog or know me personally, I have a love for high-pitched male vocalists that sing over alt-punk rock music. Coheed & Cambria is one of my favorite bands ever; I adore everything that Circa Survive does; the list continues to build.
Sleeping With Sirens could be called a Circa Survive copycat band, but I would argue that they are a little bit different. For starters, SWS offers bits of screaming – CS does not. Outside of that, my only other argument is that CS tends to be more progressive and eclectic with their musicianship while SWS is a lot more simplistic.
Here is a video for a single off this record. Although it’s not even close to being the best song on the album, it shows you just how good these collection of songs are:
