Florida as of late, has churned out dozens of young bands trying to gain recognition, but none have broken out quite as well as Orlando's Sleeping with Sirens. Influenced by metal bands like Drop Dead Gorgeous and rock bands like Dance Gavin Dance, Sleeping with Sirens finds a harmonious balance between melody and aggressive breakdowns. Having sold 5,000 records on their debut album and touring with bands like From First to Last and Sky Eats Airplane, Sleeping with Sirens prove that it's entirely possible for newcomers to kick down doors and burst onto the scene. With a live energy that matches the intensity of the recording, SWS are going to be turning heads for anyone within earshot of a pair of speakers.
The band is currently residing in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The band is signed to Rise Records and has released one full-length album, With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear. The album debuted at number 7 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart, and at number 36 on Top Independent Albums. The band often includes Christian themes in their music.
