Okay Sleeping with Sirens, we get the message. Fans have something big heading their way later this week, and you don’t want to share. At least not yet.
On Monday (June 17), the Florida-founded band started the week by dropping a cryptic video on social media sending fans into a frenzy of speculations.
The 18-second clip begins with frontman Kellin Quinn, sporting platinum locks, walking in the lobby of a building. He looks like a man on a mission as he heads to an unknown area. Along the way, the viewer watches as he looks from side to side as if he were waiting for something to attack him.
He enters an elevator that takes him to a level where all the other members of the band, instruments in hand, are waiting for his arrival. Just as it seems like the group is about to start playing a song, the clip cuts to a screen with the text “June 19” on it.
Quinn’s mission to get to his bandmates is soundtracked by an electronic-styled song which is cut off just as drummer Gabe Barham is about to hit his drum kit. Is this the lead single off the band’s forthcoming studio effort?
If we’re going to take bets, we’re going to go with yes. Watch the clip below.
The video comes hot on the heels of the band wiping their Instagram accounts clean. All five members seem to be on the same page as all images on their personal accounts were also erased.
Is this the beginning of their new era? If what Quinn said in a tweet last month holds true, we’re definitely putting our money on it.
The timing of all these cryptic hints couldn’t be any better for the quintet. Later this week, they will embark on the inaugural Disrupt Festival. Sleeping with Sirens joins The Used, Sum 41, Thrice, Circa Survive, and more on the upcoming tour. The full list of dates can be found here.
Sleeping with Sirens’ last studio album was 2017’s Gossip.
