It is August 12th 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
The song being featured this week is courtesy of an exceptionally talented band from Orlando, Florida. Many people have at least heard of the band Sleeping With Sirens by now. And, with [already] over six hundred thousand fans on Facebook, it is clear a lot more will soon hear the name too.
I actually discovered this post hardcore band only a couple of months ago. Although I had known their name for quite a while, it was not until I popped in my Punk Goes Pop; Volume 4 CD, where Sleeping With Sirens can be heard covering a Cee Lo Green hit, when I had to search the band more.
The fact that I did not discover this band until now definitely annoys me. Sleeping With Sirens is one heck of an incredible band. And, lead vocalist, Kellin Quinn's, absolutely astonishing vocal skills definitely adds to that. Furthermore, Kellin has proven, time and time again, that he can literally sing any style of music out there. Sleeping With Sirens is truly impressive which is why their song, titled Stomach Tied In Knots, is this week's 'Song of the Week'.
Stomach Tied In Knots is the third track on this band's newest EP, titled If You Were A Movie, This Would Be Your Soundtrack. Officially released on June 26th 2012, it is comprised of five song that will, well, quite honestly leave you speechless.
Sleeping With Sirens released their first full length record, titled With Ears to See And Eyes to Hear, on March 23rd 2010. Then, fourteen months later, they put out their next record, titled Let's Cheers to This, on May 10th 2011. Let's Cheers To This, much like their first record as well, is incredible. Each song has its own unique elements and together the record will blow you away.
With that being said their latest release is something that people, everywhere, need to hear. If You Were A Movie, This Would Be Your Soundtrack, released on June 26th 2012, is something that I cannot even find words for. The EP has been on repeat for weeks now and everytime I listen to it I get the chills. And, of course, that is why Stomach Tied In Knots, is this week's 'Song of the Week'.
Sleeping With Sirens definitely needs to be a band you check out next, if you have not already. Their latest EP will blow your mind, as it did mine, and I am beyond excited to keep up with this band.
Although it was posted prior to the release of their official EP, you can check out an acoustic version of this week's 'Song of the Week', Stomach Tied In Knots, on their Youtube Channel, found here:
