While She Sleeps: taking some time off

Loz Taylor believes that While She Sleeps can make the step-up to greatness with their next album.

The screamer is currently recovering from throat surgery that has delayed the final touches and release of the follow-up to 2012′s storming debut, This Is The Six, but when we caught up with him for our current issue, he was feeling super positive about the band’s imminent and long-term future.

“It’s hard to get noticed and get a following in the first place, but once you’ve got it the pressure flips 180 and you have to keep writing songs that people like,” says the singer of the issues surrounding being a ‘bright young hope’ for British music. “I want the fans of our band to appreciate the effort we put in and like our songs and the records we produce. It’s a tough one. I always want us to be heavier, I don’t want us to be looked at as a ‘mainstream band’. Saying that, we are up for the challenge of seeing how far we can push it and how far we can progress. It might take a while but I think we’ve got it in us to do some pretty amazing things.

“You can’t look too far ahead before [the album]‘s finished,” he adds. “But, if we release an album that people like, and I think we will, get on some support slots with bands we admire, tour the world, get to see more countries and pick up some new fans on the way, then I’ll be happy. That’s living the dream, isn’t it?”

Expect Sleeps to make an almighty splash later this year. The Sheffield crew play Download in June.
