Brooklyn shapeshifters Candiria - who are known for fusing metal, jazz, hip-hop, and more in a truly unique hybrid style - have premiered the title track from their new album, While They Were Sleeping, out October 7th via Metal Blade Records.
While They Were Sleeping is a concept album conceived by the band's lead vocalist Carley Coma. It tells the tale of a failed musician who rises up against a monarchy in New York City. Pre-ordered in various formats: metalblade.com/candiria
While They Were Sleeping will be available in CD and limited edition colored vinyl. The vinyl will be available in two marble color options, with only 250 copies printed in the U.S. for each option. Option #1, "The Wounded Heart," will be available along with the album preorder. Option #2, "The Veil," will be available at select retail outlets. Limited supplies of both options will also be available at select upcoming Candiria shows.
To celebrate the release of this much-anticipated album, Candiria will embark on the NYC Five-Borough "World Tour," playing shows in intimate venues in each of the city's five boroughs during the week of release. Limited edition posters will be made for all of NYC Five-Borough "World Tour" shows. Each poster will be available only at the corresponding show.
