Sleeping With Sirens’ Kellin Quinn Says He’s Open to Doing 10-Year Tour for Debut Album
In a new interview, Sleeping With Sirens frontman Kellin Quinn has revealed he'd be open to the idea of a 10-year-anniversary tour for the band's debut album, With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear, which is a decade old this March.
Speaking to Kerrang!, he said: "Would I do a 10-year anniversary tour? You know what, I wouldn’t be opposed to it, but I would definitely want to take it into the rehearsal space and make it a little bit more modern — and not so old-metalcore! I’d heavy it up to how we are now."
In the same interview, Quinn also shed some light on his negative feelings toward Sleeping With Sirens' much-maligned 2017 album, Gossip. Describing it as his least-favorite of the band's records, he outlined how, on reflection, Gossip "felt really forced."
"You know when something is not working, but you just try to make it work anyway? That’s what it [Gossip] felt like to me. I felt like we were really trying to make that one work," he continued.
Sleeping With Sirens returned to form with last year's sixth album, How It Feels to Be Lost, which had a sound more akin to the band's earlier material than the pop-heavy sheen of Gossip.
Quinn and his bandmates are currently on a U.S. tour with Set It Off, Belmont and Point North, whilst Sleeping With Sirens will also play a run of shows with the Amity Affliction throughout April and May.
