Gold-certified recording artist Sleeping With Sirens has today released their newest single, “Bloody Knuckles” via Sumerian Records. Listen below.
“Bloody Knuckles” was premiered exclusively on SiriusXM‘s Octane and is the band’s first original track since the release of their 2019 smash-hit album, “How It Feels to Be Lost”. The band also recently released two covers for the hit TV series Paradise City of Blind Melon’s classic “No Rain” and Zella Day‘s haunting “Shadow Preachers” (streaming now on Amazon Prime).
“How It Feels To Be Lost” was heralded as a major return to the band’s earlier, heavier form. Since its release in September 2019, “How It Feels To Be Lost” has been featured on flagship streaming playlists including Spotify‘s “Rock This” and “New Core”, Amazon Music‘s “Rock Scene” as well as being included on Apple Music‘s “Breaking Hard Rock”, Spotify‘s “New Music Friday” and “Kickass Metal” and Deezer‘s “Heavy New Rock”.
At the time of “How It Feels To Be Lost”‘s release, Quinn told HMV about the lyrical subjects covered on the album: “There’s definitely a theme. This is the most personal record I’ve ever done. I didn’t try to sugarcoat anything. I wrote down how I was feeling. This has been very therapeutic. The theme is me overcoming the darkness and finding a light through my struggle. That’s why it’s named ‘How It Feels To Be Lost’.
“Depression and anxiety make you feel lost,” he explained. “The goal of this record was to help people understand that just because you feel like you’re by yourself, you don’t have to be. Lots of people feel the same way. I wanted this record to help people and to give words to people who can’t say how they’re feeling.”
