Created in 2009, Sleeping with Sirens is a post-heavy metal band from Orlando, Florida. Known for their ranging boyish vocals, the group found success mixing punk melodies with metal guitar riffs. Their sound is similar to modern popular bands Memphis May Fire, Falling in Reverse, All Time Low, and Pierce the Veil. Associated acts include For All We Know, We Are Defiance, and Broadway.
In the later part of the 2000-2009 decade, Sleeping with Sirens began work on their debut album. In 2010, they released With Ears to See and Eyes to hear. The record became a modest success for the young band and gained them attention from other rock artist. After touring, the group returned to the studio to begin work on their next record. In 2011, they began releasing singles from their new album, including their song “Fire.” Before spring could end, Sleeping with Sirens dropped their follow-up album, Let’s Cheers to This. Again, the record became a modest success, which led to their next acoustic project. In June, their EP “If You Were a Movie, This Would be Your Soundtrack hit the shelves and featured a softer side of the band.
In 2013, they hooked their electrics up and began recording their third album. The record, Feel, released in early summer and did well for the group. One hit single featured popular artist, Machine Gun Kelly, which gained commercial success. They followed by joining the Vans Warped Tour and performing throughout the US. Afterwards, Sleeping with Sirens headlined their own US tour to promote their album. While on the road, Breath Carolina, Issues, and several other bands joined to support the up-and-coming act. Before the year could end, guitarist Jesse Lawson departed from the band and was replaced by Nick Martin. Lawson stated he wanted to spend more time with family and start a new music project.
In 2014, the band announced it had returned to the studio to begin working on their latest project. The album was delayed after the group split from their former label, Rise Records. Sleeping with Sirens departed and started their own music company, Rise Records. They are currently on a US tour making notable stops in Nashville, Tennessee and Detroit, Michigan.
