As many of you are aware, AbsolutePunk and its AbsoluteVoices sites are sponsoring this October's South By So What?! festival in Grand Prairie, TX on October 25th and 26th. Today we created a Rdio playlist featuring songs from some of the festival's main attractions - Sleeping With Sirens, Finch, Gwar, and more. So check out the festival playlist in the replies and don't forget to pick up your tickets!
Leading up to the October 8th release of Before It Caves, A Loss For Words will be releasing a new video every day featuring someone talking about it. Each video will also feature a short clip from the record. You can watch the first few videos featuring Joe Boynton (Transit), Kellen Quinn (Sleeping With Sirens), Lynn Gunnulfsen (PVRIS), Davey Muise (Vanna) and Jay Maas (Defeater; also mixed the record), respectively, in the replies.
Kellin Quinn has revealed that the $80 Polaroid Meet and Greet VIP option included as part of Sleeping With Sirens fall U.S. headliner ticket options will benefit cancer patient Anthony. Fans have raised over $10,000 for Anthony by purchasing this package.
keep in mind Polaroid film is super expensive, your getting the ticket to the show, you get front row over anyone else.. If you only want to pay general admission then just do that. However, if you do like the idea of doing all these things included.. It's ONLY 80 dollars.. I would never charge someone money for just a picture with me.. I try and do anything and everything for my fans.. I do in fact have a family, and that family needs to be fed.. So thanks for supporting us and helping me continue to tour.. Without you there is no us! Love you Kellin
You can check out our interview with Sleeping With Sirenshere. The band is currently on the Kia Forte Main Stage on this summer's Vans Warped Tour. The band's brand new album, Feel, is available in stores and online.
This appears to be pretty old, but it's Friday, so why not? Hit the replies to hear a demo version of Dance Gavin Dance's "Uneasy Hearts Weigh The Most" featuring Sleeping With Siren's Kellin Quinn on vocals. The video apparently comes from their singer search between Downtown Battle Mountain and Dance Gavin Dance.
Updating our previous post projecting sales numbers of Sleeping With Sirens' new album, Feel, the final numbers have come in and the album sold 59,000 units in its debut week. That was good enough to place it at No. 3 on the Billboard charts, behind Queens of the Stone Age's debut week and Daft Punk's strong second week of Random Access Memories. The debut marks the band's best sales week and Rise Records' highest debut total ever. Congrats to the band and their entire team!
Coming in at No. 3 is a new arrival from rock act “Sleeping With Sirens,” which scores its best sales week and highest-charting album ever with “Feel.” The album debuts with 59,000 sold. Twenty-seven percent of the...
Billboard is reporting that Sleeping With Sirens will sell around 60,000 units of Feel in its first week on the charts, which will be second to Queens of the Stone Age (projected 80K) for debut albums in the week ending June 9. That number should be good enough to land Sleeping With Sirens in the top three on the Billboard 200 (competing with Daft Punk for the No. 2 slot). This would be the highest sales week of the band's career and, impressively, Rise Records' highest-selling debut.
At last Sunday's Warped Tour stop in Portland, OR at the Rose Quarter Riverfront, Sleeping With Sirens guitarist Jesse Lawson proposed to his girlfriend in front of a massive crowd at the Kia Rio Mainstage. Congratulations to them both! Video can be found in the replies.
