Brooklyn's CANDIRIA are a band that more people should know about - something I've been saying for many years, going back to when I first heard their album 300 Percent Density while working for the late Sam Goody back in 2001. Fusing metal, hardcore, jazz, and hip-hop, Candiria is back with a new album, While They Were Sleeping, set for release by Metal Blade Records on October 7th. It was recorded at Spaceman Sound in Brooklyn by Tom Tierney and Alex Mead-Fox, and produced by Candiria. Check out the new single, "Mereya," and all of the new album details below...

From the Official Announcement: 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. 

While They Were Sleeping is 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 USA for each option. Option #1, "The Wounded Heart," will be available along with the album pre-order. 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. Pre-order bundles are up at Metal Blade.

To celebrate the release of the much-anticipated album, Candiria will embark on the NYC 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 NYC Five-Borough "World Tour" shows. Each poster will be available only at the corresponding show. Tickets to the Five-Borough shows can be purchased here.
