Last week, Sleeping with Sirens posted on Twitter that fans should not “believe the gossip.” Of course, when you post something like that, die-hard fans will instantly try to figure out what the cryptic message really means. As it turns out, it was the band preparing their legion of followers for some major news. On Friday (July 14), the Florida-founded band announced the release of their fifth studio album. The record, which will be titled Gossip, is set to be released in the fall. To accompany the new album news, Sleeping with Sirens also released Gossip’s lead single, “Legends.” Listen to the new song above.
Gossip is set to be released on Sept. 22 through Warner Bros. Records. Pre-orders for the new album are currently available on the band’s website as well as a slew of music streaming sites. Those who pre-order the album ahead of time will receive an instant download “Legends.”
As if the new song and upcoming album wasn’t enough, Sleeping with Sirens and their fans were given cool news when the US Olympic team announced that the new track will be the team’s official song for their road to the 2018 Winter Olympics. “#TeamUSA is proud to announce LEGENDS by Sleeping with Sirens [@SWStheband] as the OFFICIAL song on the road to the 2018 #WinterOlympics” reads the post on the team’s official Twitter page.
Quickly responding to the honor was frontman Kellin Quinn who replied by saying: “This is the biggest honor!! Thank you so much #TeamUSA #Legends.”
Gossip is the follow-up to Sleeping with Sirens’ 2015 release, Madness.
In support of the new album, the band has announced plans to hit the road during the later months of the year. The “Gossip Tour” will kick off on Aug. 31 at Slim’s in San Francisco and wrap up a little over a month later on Oct. 1 with an appearance at WJJO’s Sonic Boom Festival in Madison, Wisconsin. Tickets for the upcoming tour will go on sale beginning this Friday, July 21. For now, the complete list of tour stops can be seen below.
