Sleeping With Sirens


Conventional wisdom says Post-Hardcore bands don't land in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200. Their efforts show up on the Indie, Hard Rock or Heatseekers charts. But in '13, Sleeping With Sirens defied expectations when their third studio effort "Feel" sold 59,000 copies in its first week to nail the #3 spot on the Billboard survey (behind Queens Of The Stone Age and Daft Punk).





Sleeping With Sirens' debut "With Ears To See And Eyes To Hear" went to #7 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart, and to #36 on Top Independent Albums. The '10 set was also notable for introducing Kellin Quinn's tenor leggiero vocal range - a lightweight, flexible tenor type of voice.

The group's sophomore set "Let's Cheer To This," with the track "Do It Now Remember It Later," was followed by the acoustic EP "If You Were A Movie, This Would Be Your Soundtrack."

Two singles, "Low" and "Alone," preceded the release of "Feel."

Late in the year ('13), guitarist Jesse Lawson announced his departure, citing his desire to spend more time with his family and start a new musical venture. The group tapped Nick Martin as his replacement for a European tour and beyond.

Another change occurred when Sleeping With Sirens announced they'd left Rise Records for the Epitaph imprint. "Madness," a '15 release, was their first for the label and was notable for the tracks "Kick Me" and "We Like It Loud."

Another label move occurred when the group released their fifth full-length album, "Gossip." On the Warner Bros. imprint the '17 set was the group's major label debut.
