Following the release of the title-track and DOWN with Alex Taylor, While She Sleeps are giving fans another taste of their upcoming album SELF HELL.

With the record arriving on March 29, today the band unveil the incredibly emotional TO THE FLOWERS, along with an accompanying short film that was created and shot by the members.

“This song means a lot to us,” begins guitarist Sean Long. “As much as we love a good breakdown and heavy riff, a lot of our passion lies within emotive musical pieces. This song has nearly brought us all to tears multiple times simply because it touches something in us that we hold very dear. A pain we all know and have felt down to our deepest core. The essence of our personal pain expressed in music is what the band is all about. Talking about the things we know are difficult but necessary. The working title was called ‘radiohead’ and that should help understand the feeling it gave us when writing it. This contains the ‘double-whammy’ that I stumbled across just before the song was finished. It went insanely viral when I posted it online so I just had to get it in the song. People have been saying it’s one of the greatest lead guitar parts of all time, I’ll take it.”

Meanwhile, of the video frontman Loz Taylor shares: “TO THE FLOWERS is emotional, tragic and real life. We intended to make a short film that encompasses the real emotions of relationships, grief, love, death and pain. Shot by the members of While She Sleeps, TO THE FLOWERS ebbs and flows through an entendre of tragedy. This was a huge project to undertake, and we have poured our creative energy into directing this piece. We had a wicked time working on the film. This will hit home.”

It sure will. Check it out below:
