Ever thought to your­self, Hey, I’d quite like to pop to Loz Tay­lor’s house one day for a spot of din­ner – he’s prob­a­bly a great cook and would make a nice slap-up meal’? Yeah, us too. That is, un­til we saw While She Sleeps’ video for Anti-so­cial, and re­alised he dines with… um… a big old swine on his ta­ble. As you do.

Okay, that’s not ex­actly ac­cu­rate, but the pow­er­ful new clip – which was di­rected by Tay­lor Fawcett and gui­tarist Mat Welsh’s brother, Tom – is a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into what goes on be­hind the scenes in camp While She Sleeps. More specif­i­cally, what’s go­ing on in their brains, and how they feel about the cur­rent state of the world in 2018. And if you couldn’t al­ready guess from the cho­rus of, ‘ I’m not anti-so­cial; I’m anti-bull­shit,’ the Sh­effield met­allers’ lat­est sin­gle sug­gests that they are pretty fed up – and the video im­plies a lot of that is down to the world’s ob­ses­sion with smart­phones. As for the track’s fi­nal line, ‘ Thank fuck for head­phones’? Well, that’s a line that leaves lit­tle to sec­ond-guess. And we couldn’t agree more with it, ob­vi­ously. K!

WHILE SHE SLEEPS WILL RE­LEASE THEIR NEW AL­BUM SO WHAT? ON MARCH 1,2019 VIA SLEEPS BROTH­ERS/ spine­farm. THE BAND TOUR THE UK NEXT YEAR – SEE THE GIG GUIDE
