Florida metalcore stalwarts Sleeping With Sirens have resurfaced in a big way, pulling back the curtain on their October 14th full length release, Complete Collapse, arriving via Sumerian Records.

Marking the latest chapter in the band’s career, the album’s introductory single, “Crosses” kicks off the campaign with the help of Underoath vocalist Spencer Chamberlain.

Kellin Quinn of the band discussed the joint effort with one of their contemporaries and why the song bears with it an added significance during an era marred with adversity. “I think ‘Crosses’ is a great opening single for our new album! The song to me is about not putting yourself above anyone. I think we’re all just trying our best and we can lift each other up! In a world where everyone pretends to be perfect, I think this song is letting everyone know that we all struggle and we can all rise above it!”

Quinn added, “Spencer Chamberlain really elevated this song! Underoath is a huge influence for me when it comes to making music. It was an honor working with somebody I really look up to!”

The track which touts a heavy bounce and an infectious catchiness lands with a Brian Cox-directed visual that features the band having some fun at their own expense. Depicting a less than glamorous gig, the band deliver an energized showing despite the rather dreary circumstances.

Quinn explained how levity was important for the visual. The video for ‘Crosses’ was something I really wanted to feel light-hearted to counteract the heavy subject matter. Not everything has to be so serious all the time! The video was a blast to shoot, Brian Cox took my concept and really made an amazing video!”

Sleeping With Sirens recently announced their CTRL + ALT + DEL Tour with Don Broco, Point North and Garzi. The summer tour is set to kick off next month and stretch into August, leading up to the fall release of the highly-anticipated follow-up to the band’s 2019 full length, How It Feels To Be Lost.
