Ever feel so stressed and anxious that the very thought of relaxing aggravates you? I know I did.

“This album is as much yours as it is ours,” says While She Sleeps’ Mat Welsh, hashing out a sentiment that explores how bands cannot exist in today’s industry without significant support through record sales, streams and successful attendance at live shows. But when the vocalist/guitarist articulates this over the phone, he means it in a far more heartfelt, substantial way than moving hundreds—even thousands—of copies in an album’s opening week. Welsh and his fellow bandmates simply couldn’t have made their upcoming album without fan support and input before the record’s creation. Rather than bank on the backing of a label, the U.K.-based metalcore group opted to take a risk and crowdfund the capital to self-release their upcoming 2017 full-length, You Are We. With four months left until the album is released, While She Sleeps fans alone have already helped the band achieve 133 percent of the pledge goal.
