Hardcore Sheffield band, ‘While She Sleeps’ will be live and loud in Scunthorpe town centre and believe me there is no sleeping to their music. It’s loud and it’s heavy. These boys have risen to the big-time fresh from touring Japan. When I say big-time I can’t go to a town or city without seeing one person wearing a WSS logo t-shirt, ever seen the teens of today with the WSS across their front? Now you know what it means.
Now even if you aren’t into this type of heavy hitting music it’s still hard not to get excited that they chose our town to help support the scene.It goes to show that Cafe INDIEpendent is going down in bands good books as being the place to play.
The band is made up of 5 members
Lawrence Taylor- Vocals
Sean Long- Guitar
Mat Welsh -Guitar / Vocals
Aaran Mckenzie- Bass
Adam Savage- Drums
They are looking set to achieve their goal of world domination.Already hitting 241k likes on Facebook and 47.7k on twitter and with gigs booked around the world.
I could go into what they sound like and what genre they fit into but for the people who are fans and follow this music scene WSS needs no introduction really.What can be said is this is music to mosh to or at least some serious head banging.
It is quite heavy to me as I’m usually into my Alternative Rock, which is a little lighter but I have respect for the band on how far they have come and still wanting to support the small towns to push their music close and personal to the fans. Just because it’s a bit heavy for me I would still go watch them just for the pure energy, jumping, enthusiasm and the crowd hype. I expect the atmosphere is going to be electric.
You may have to wait in a line for a while on the night of the gig as there are ONLY TICKETS ON THE DOOR. There will be no pre sale of tickets so once the 200 capacity is full, it’s full and Cafe INDIEpendent. This means it will be a pretty close and personal gig down in the BASEMENT of the venue. It is quality down there, peering into Cafe Independent from outside looks like a light and open cafe space where you would sit in the day and take a break but as soon as you step down the stairs into the Basement it feels like gig time.
