In Pictures: While She Sleeps Slay Their Biggest Ever Headline Show
Last Friday (January 24) Sheffield wrecking crew While She Sleeps stormed London’s Brixton O2 Academy, playing a sold-out show to 5000 die-hard fans.
But it really was While She Sleeps’ moment for the taking. They’ve been on quite the journey since their sensational 2012 debut This Is The Six – at one point not knowing if they could even continue – but their constant upward trajectory has led them here, to the iconic Brixton Academy, with swarms of dedicated followers who have been there since the beginning, urging and wishing the Yorkshire metallers onwards.
It was a set that leant heavily on latter-day material, with just one song from the debut, but the air thick with the voices of thousands bellowing ANTI-SOCIAL, THE GUILTY PARTY and an electrifying Hurricane.
Check out our exclusive gallery of their headline set below. Can you spot yourself in the crowd?
