Candiria’s “While They Were Sleeping” Out Now, Band Subject of New Metal Injection Documentary



Brooklyn shapeshifters Candiria, who fuse metal, jazz, hip-hop, and more in a unique hybrid style, have released their new album While They Were Sleeping, today through Metal Blade Records.

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.

Metal Injection‘s Frank Godla filmed a documentary about the album. Watch it here.

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 5 Borough shows can be purchased here.

The band has also confirmed a fall tour, which will take place in November. Dalek will serve as direct support. Those dates are also below.
