Falling on the more melodic side of the post-hardcore world, Florida's Sleeping with Sirens create a whirlwind of emotion with their yearning and aggressive blend of metal and emo influences. Formed in 2009, Sleeping with Sirens - featuring vocalist Kellin Quinn, guitarists Jack Fowler and Jesse Lawson, bassist Justin Hills, and drummer Gabe Barham -- quickly caught the attention of metalcore label Rise Records, which signed them and released their debut record, With Ears to See, And Eyes to Hear, in 2010. The album launched the band onto the Billboard Heatseekers chart, debuting at number seven and selling over 25,000 copies.

Their sophomore effort, Let's Cheers to This, arrived in May of the following year. At the beginning of 2013, the bandmembers announced they had entered the studio to record their third album, and Feel was released just six months later. The album debuted at number three on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. Madness, the band's fourth studio long-player and first outing for Epitaph Records, arrived in early 2015. Live and Unplugged followed the next year, an acoustic set that also included covers of Sublime's "Santeria" and Goo Goo Dolls' "Iris." The band's fifth set, Gossip, arrived in 2017 on Warner Bros. Produced by David Bendeth, the album featured the lead single "Legends."

Over the next two years the band did major tours of North America and Europe in support of the album and in early 2019 announced a new record deal with the Sumerian label. Along with the announcement of their forthcoming sixth album, How It Feels to Be Lost, they issued the single, "Leave It All Behind," which featured a sound harkening back to their early days.
