Brooklyn's musical alchemists Candiria – long-known for fusing metal, hardcore, jazz, and hip-hop in a unique, inimitable blend – will release their new album, While They Were Sleeping, via Metal Blade Records in October 2016. It was recorded at Spaceman Sound in Brooklyn by Tom Tierney and Alex Mead-Fox, and produced by Candiria. It's the band's first album since 2009′s Kiss the Lie. 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.

It was of primary importance to Candira that they retain a distance from the compartmentalized, disinfected, and essentially whitewashed production qualities heard throughout much of contemporary music. As a band that has always operated from a working class perspective, capturing an organic aesthetic was essential. The proof of this can be heard on tracks as dissimilar as "The Cause," an experiment in electro-discordancy that lures the listener in with a seemingly innocuous riff whose rhythm coils in on itself until stuttering to an end, and "Opaque," a track of transcendent significance for both this album and the band.

The band's emphatic ambition, coupled with an unwavering confidence in one another, has allowed them to create a concept album that is completely off the musical grid, will defy expectations, and establish a new standard in Candira's willfully driven evolution.
