For All Those Sleeping probably aren’t a band that you’d like. They’re one of these new generation groups that focus too much on their image at the detriment of their originality music wise. 2010′s debut, ‘Cross Your Fingers’, had record listeners in the fringed population of the world, but with ‘Outspoken’, you can’t help but feel that their popularity might be dwindling.
Date: September 12th, 2012
Venue: Sound Control, Manchester
Support: For All Those Sleeping / Vanna / Oceano
For all those who didn’t know by their name alone, iwrestledabearonce are easily one of the most eccentric metal bands around today. Even if you haven’t listened to them yet, simply take a look at some of their song titles and this will easily confirm it early enough for you. Now, heading onto their first headline UK tour, and their first time on British shores since the temporary/permament (yet to be confirmed) change of frontwoman from Krysta Cameron to Courtney LaPlante, let’s see if they can maintain their reputation.
iwrestledabearonce have confirmed they’ll be heading over to the UK in September for a full headline tour run, with support throughout coming from Oceano, Vanna and For All Those Sleeping. Full UK dates can be found below:

The problem with reviewing music you just can’t see any value in is that often you overcompensate your judgements one way or the other citing bands as good examples of bad genres in order to be proportional, fair and balanced to those that may be interested in such brain-melting recycled pulp. Such behaviour has become a personal vice when dealing with the sonic STI to the ears that is the criminally named brand of bland the masses call ‘post-hardcore’. However, this write-up for ‘Cross Your Fingers’ by For All Those Sleeping will not be so misleadingly generous and forgiving.
They aren’t any worse than what’s slumped and floundered before us in the past, it’s just that the values of what is worth listening to and what could be a thinly veiled PR campaign for ‘emotional’ hair products, tweenager sex symbols and sub standard Drop Dead fashion rip-offs need to be addressed. The sentence for previous crimes committed? Community service, rehabilitation to civilised society and an exorcism all rolled into one album review. Here goes.
