Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
While She Sleeps have announced their biggest ever headline shows, coming to London and Manchester in January 2020.
The band will be joined by stateside hardcore punk outfit Every Time I Die and and equally acclaimed Boston hardcore outfit Vein.
The live dates follow the release of While She Sleeps’ fourth studio album SO WHAT?, released earlier this year.
“We don’t know how to do anything else,” says guitarist Sean Long of the announcement. “This is what we were born to do. These shows are going to be the embodiment of our entire life’s work and we are going to give it all back to the fans. It’s going to be biblical. We aren’t slowing down anytime soon. The North Still Stands For Nothing and it always will.”
The two UK dates form part of a wider European tour which also sees the trio of bands take to France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.
Their last UK tour saw While She Sleeps sell out London’s Roundhouse, a show which saw the five-piece team up with a live choir. Most recently, both While She Sleeps and Every Time I Die appeared at 2000trees Festival in Cheltenham.
While She Sleeps have released four studio albums to date, unveiling their This Is The Six debut in 2012 following the release of their The North Stands For Nothing EP.
Finding similar success with Brainwashed in 2015 and 2017’s You Are We, the band continue to make serious waves across the British alternative scene.
Here are those newly announced UK dates:
24 January 2020 – O2 Academy Brixton, London
26 January 2020 – Manchester Academy, Manchester
