Sounds | Sleeping With Sirens, Crosses (ft. Spencer Chamberlain)
Het is intussen al meer dan een jaar geleden dat we Bloody Knuckles van Sleeping With Sirens te horen kregen. Het was dus hoog tijd dat er nieuwe muziek uitkwam. Recentelijk was dat dan ook eindelijk het geval. Crosses is een collab met Spencer Chamberlain van Underoath. Maar er is nog meer goed nieuws! Op 14 oktober komt hun nieuwe album Complete Collapse namelijk ook uit. Hoewel Bloody Knuckles me nog niet volledig kon overtuigen, klinkt Crosses echt enorm goed en ben ik razend benieuwd naar de volgende liedjes!
Zanger Kellin Quinn zegt het voglende over de nieuwe song:
"I think "Crosses" is a great opening single for our new album! The song to me is about not putting yourself above anyone. I think we’re all just trying our best and we can lift each other up! In a world where everyone pretends to be perfect, I think this song is letting everyone know that we all struggle and we can all rise above it!
Spencer Chamberlain really elevated this song! Underoath is a huge influence for me when it comes to making music. It was an honor working with somebody I really look up to!
The video for "Crosses" was something I really wanted to feel light-hearted to counteract the heavy subject matter. Not everything has to be so serious all the time! The video was a blast to shoot, Brian Cox took my concept and really made an amazing video!
If you love with ears to see and eyes to hear, let’s cheers, and madness! You’re going to LOVE this new album! "
Since emerging in 2010, Sleeping With Sirensope between pop, punk “Strays,” generated global album sales in excess of 1.5 million, ignited over half-a-billion streams, and achieved a trio of gold-selling singles: “If I’m James Dean, You’re Audrey Hepburn,” “If You Can’t Hang,” and “Scene Two-Roger Rabbit.” They launched two albums—Feel and Madness—into the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200. Additionally, they collaborated with MGK on “Alone” and Pierce the Veil on the gold-certified “King For A Day.” Beyond selling out shows worldwide and receiving acclaim from The New York Times, Alternative Press crowned them “Artist of the Year” at the Alternative Press Music Awards, proclaimed “Kick Me” the 2015 “Song of the Year”, and featured them as cover stars a whopping seven times.
