CANDIRIA To Release 'While They Were Sleeping' Album In October

Brooklyn's musical alchemists CANDIRIA, long known for fusing metal, hardcore, jazz, and hip-hop in a unique, inimitable blend, will release their new album, "While They Were Sleeping", on October 7 via Metal Blade. It was recorded at Spaceman Sound in Brooklyn by Tom Tierney and Alex Mead-Fox, and produced by CANDIRIA. It's the band's first album since 2009's "Kiss The Lie".

"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.

The album is now available for preorder, with the first track "Mereya" available as an instant grat track.

Also, "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 the much-anticipated album, CANDIRIA will embark on the New York City 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 New York City five-borough "world tour" shows. Each poster will be available only at the corresponding show. A full U.S. tour will follow, with dates to be revealed soon.

Since their inception, CANDIRIA have been lauded for their ability to mesh decidedly different styles in a seamless way. They were named one of the 10 Most Important Bands In Metal by Rolling Stone back in 1999 and the band has consistently released music that challenges listeners, thrills critics, and most importantly, that has attracted a legion of dedicated, diehard fans.
