Sleeping With Sirens Biography
Arguably one of the biggest acts in the post-hardcore genre is Sleeping With Sirens, who have risen to considerable prominence since their inception in 2009. Fronted by lead singer Kellin Quinn, the quartet has released three studio albums since 2010 and has seen relative commercial success for a music genre that has seen its popularity waver in recent years. The band is currently on tour with Pierce The Veil and prices for Sleeping With Sirens tickets for shows across North America continue to rise on the secondary market.
Tthe average secondary price for Sleeping With Sirens tickets is $104.94 on their current tour with Pierce The Veil. Alongside their co-headlining partner, Sleeping With Sirens will also tour with Beartooth and This Wild Life. In late September, both headlining acts announced a second leg of shows scheduled from the end of January through March, spanning 30 dates across the U.S. They will then head to Europe and the U.K. for the remainder of the year, beginning in late-March and concluding in November.
The tour’s current leg is scheduled to wrap at The Joint in Las Vegas on December 6, but Sleeping With Sirens tickets have already seen prices for their second leg of tour beginning in January reach higher prices on the secondary market. The majority of dates have already seen presales sell out, eliciting a high demand to see the group as they make their way back out on the road in January.
The group’s first album, With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear, was released in 2010 and debuted at number 7 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and eventually climbed to number 36 on that year’s Top Independent albums. Sleeping With Sirens is notoriously known for Kellin Quinn’s high-range vocals, which register in the tenor leggiero range. Due to his distinct voice, the band has pioneered a hybrid of heavy music alongside shrill vocals, which has become a commercially successful formula for bands in the post-hardcore scene.
The band’s lineup has rotated frequently over the years but currently enlists Justin Hills on bass, Gabe Barham on drums and Jack Fowler on lead guitar. Their sophomore album, titled Let’s Cheers to This, was released in 2011 and climbed to number 5 on Billboard’s U.S. Hard Rock chart that year. That album spawned the singles “Do It Now Remember it Later”, “Fire” and “If You Can’t Hang”, which have since garnered more than 50 million views on YouTube for their corresponding music videos. The group’s most recent album, Feel, is the highest-charting post-hardcore album to date, where it ranked at No. 3 on the Billboard U.S. Top 200 in 2013.
Sleeping With Sirens tickets continue to hit the secondary market as the band tours through the U.S. and they will undoubtedly reach even higher prices when they travel to Europe in the spring. It is likely that Sleeping With Sirens tickets will sell out at each of the tour’s remaining stops over its first leg as they play smaller venues like The Joint in Las Vegas and the Paramount in New York, but ticket demand will likely be higher to see the band when they make their way across the pond in March.
Guests haven’t been announced for the tour’s forthcoming U.S. and European legs, but prices for Sleeping With Sirens tickets on the secondary market won’t waver much depending on the tour’s opening acts. Pierce the Veil and Sleeping With Sirens are two of the genre’s biggest acts and have become a staple in the post-hardcore community. With success piling up, both bands will continue to garner big tour averages on the secondary market as they make their way across the U.S. and Europe over the next 12 months.
