Official press release:

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 on October 7. 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.

The album is now available for preorder, with the first track "Mereya" available as an instant grat track. Listen to "Mereya" here:

Also, While They Were Sleeping will be 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 U.S. for each option. Option #1, "The Wounded Heart," will be available along with the album preorder. 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.

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.
