He may have been visibly absent from the band’s recent run alongside Architects and Polaris, but While She Sleeps frontman Lawrence ‘Loz’ Taylor is coming back to the band after addressing some personal issues in a statement released from the band.
The Social Media post read:
To all While She Sleeps supporters.
A quick word from me on the current situation –
As you’ll have noticed I’ve had to take some time out this summer. I’m sorry to anyone that bought tickets and travelled to watch Sleeps but it was important for me to take some time off address a few personal issues.
Thanks so much to our brothers Scot Kennedy, Griff Dickinson & everyone else who filled in over the past month & kept our shows alive.
Same goes to anyone at the gigs & for all the well wishes and support you have shown towards me and the band. Once again it proves WSS has one of the best fan bases in the world.
I’m excited to announce that I will be back on stage soon, starting with the shows in Russia at the end of August.
Thanks for your love, support & patience.
Fantastic news for fans who have been hoping he wasn’t going to have to leave the band. The good news for us in Australia is that we FINALLY got to see SHVPES frontman Griffin Dickinson live in concert (who was filling in for Loz), which in turn, hopefully put new fans onto his band so we can see him head back down under again for a tour with them (seriously, make sure you check out SHVPES ASAP!) Revisit all of the action from the Holy Hell Tour in Brisbane with our coverage right here.
On top of that exciting news, the band have also released the music video for the song ‘I’VE SEEN IT ALL‘ which comes from their absolutely bonkers release SO WHAT?, an album that has taken fans by surprise and established WSS as one of the best upcoming UK bands getting around right now.
On the video, the band said:
We’ve spent our entire lives traveling the world and absorbing experiences at a rate we really could never have dreamed of or imagined. Unbeknownst to us there has been an underlying truth to this unconventional fast track of experiencing life. That is simply we can enjoy so many of life’s pleasures and drink them all in at an incredibly fast and loud rate, traveling the world at 1000 miles an hour watching life go by in an exhilarating way. Or we can take it in slow, staying close to home with family and friends in a calm and collective way, breathing in each day as it comes with a steady step. Your life candle can burn out in a big bright flash or it can be a slow calm burner. There really is no right way. From how we move through life we’ve learnt that there is nothing “out there” for you to attain that’s going to make you any more of an amazing person than you already are. Whilst of course fulfilling your dreams is very important, how you are right now in this moment is absolutely perfect, and you don’t need to look out into the future to be who you really are.
Food for thought for you, are you enjoying life and looking after yourself?
