CANDIRIA's WHILE THEY WERE SLEEPING is one of my most-anticipated albums of the fall, and today comes a full-band "play-through" video for the title track. Available on October 7 through the folks at 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. Check out the new video below...

"We are very excited to release a play through video for the title track off of our new album," comments guitarist John LaMacchia. "It is the first time we have ever done a play-through video that features the full band. Video director Steve Perlmutter did a fantastic job capturing the right mood and energy that matches the overall tone of the song."
