A couple of weeks ago, Sleeping with Sirens kick-started rumors when they posted a cryptic message on Twitter that stated “don’t believe the gossip.” Of course, whenever a band posts such a message online, die-hard fans are the first to become detectives and figure out what the true meaning of the message is. As it turns out, the message was the band’s way of preparing fans for some major news.
On Friday (July 14), the Florida-founded band announced the release of their fifth studio album. The record, which will be titled Gossip, is set to hit store in the fall. To accompany the new album announcement, Sleeping with Sirens also unveiled the first single off Gossip, a track titled “Legends.” Listen to the new song above.
Gossip is set to be released on Sept. 22 through Warner Bros. Records. Pre-orders for the new album are currently available on the band’s website as well as a slew of music streaming sites. Those who pre-order the album ahead of time will receive an instant download “Legends.”
As if the new song and upcoming album wasn’t enough, Sleeping with Sirens and their fans were given cool news when the US Olympic team announced that the new track will be the team’s official song for their road to the 2018 Winter Olympics. “#TeamUSA is proud to announce LEGENDS by Sleeping with Sirens [@SWStheband] as the OFFICIAL song on the road to the 2018 #WinterOlympics” reads the post on the team’s official Twitter page.
Quickly responding to the honor was frontman Kellin Quinn who replied by saying: “This is the biggest honor!! Thank you so much #TeamUSA #Legends.”
Gossip will be the follow-up to Sleeping with Sirens’ 2015 release, Madness.
In support of the new album, the band has announced plans to hit the road during the later months of the year. The "Gossip Tour" will kick off on Aug. 31 at Slim’s in San Francisco and wrap up a little over a month later on Oct. 1 with an appearance at WJJO's Sonic Boom Festival in Madison, Wisconsin.
