While She Sleeps

While She Sleeps

Saturday, May 18 @ 2:25pm | Echo Stage


While She Sleeps have chosen a fitting way to celebrate their tenth anniversary as a band – by becoming totally independent. It's a bold, impressive and powerful move that both reflects the decade gone by and hints at what the future has to offer. More than that, it demonstrates that age-old cliché is still true today – if you want something done right, do it yourself. Not only did they self fund their new album 'You Are We' with the help of their fans through a PledgeMusic campaign, but the band converted an empty warehouse in the heart of their native Sheffield into their own multi-purpose studio. It's not the first time the band have had their own space – 2010's debut EP 'The North Stands For Nothing' was recorded at a home studio called The Barn – but with this new space, which was built with the band's own money, they've taken things to the next level.

Alternative rock outfit Don Broco formed in Bedford, England in 2008. The members of the four-piece met during their time at Bedford Modern School, and after playing in different bands, vocalist Rob Damiani began writing music with Simon Delaney (guitar), Matt Donnelly (drums/vocals), and Luke Rayner (bass). They made a tenuous start and managed to play a few shows before each member left for university. At this turning point, they made a pact to return after they graduated and concentrate on the band. Once they had finished university in 2009, they booked more shows across the country and played in Leeds, Birmingham, and Manchester. This exposure led them to prestigious appearances at Camden Crawl and the Download Festival before the end of the year, as well as a coveted support slot with post-hardcore outfit Enter Shikari. In 2010 they released the self-recorded single "Dreamboy" and continued their relentless touring schedule.

If you think that you've already heard it all when it comes to heavy music, you just haven't heard Wage War. The group -- which is composed of vocalist Briton Bond, guitarist/vocalist Cody Quistad, guitarist Seth Blake, bassist Chris Gaylord and drummer Stephen Kluesener -- formed in Ocala, Florida, in 2013 and instantly started playing all over the area, quickly getting signed to Fearless Records the old fashioned way: By sending a song to the label. From there the group linked up with the production team of Andrew Wade (Neck Deep, Motionless In White) and A Day To Remember vocalist Jeremy McKinnon who produced their 2015 debut Blueprints together and returned to produce the sophomore full-length Deadweight, which the band started writing immediately after they finished their debut.

Detroit's the Black Dahlia Murder, named for the infamous 1947 slaying of 22-year-old Elizabeth Short, aka the Black Dahlia, actually sounds like they should live in Scandinavia, where much of the frenetic brand of death and black metal that inspires them originated. Formed in January 2001, the Black Dahlia Murder followed their six-song What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse demo with the four-track A Cold-Blooded Epitaph EP, which was released on their own Lovelost Records.
