After releasing their album ‘How It Feels to Be Lost’ in September of last year, Sleeping with Sirens set out to go on yet another tour starting very early in 2020. This tour would be called the Medicine tour and would have support from Chicago based band, Belmont, LA based band, Point North, and Florida based band Set It Off. What a way to start this year off right for SWS fans. This would be following their Threesome tour with Bring Me The Horizon and Poppy which started on October 10th in Phoenix and wrapped in Miami on October 29th.
Sleeping with Sirens didn’t fail to impress from the very beginning of the show. Frontman Kellin Quinn started this tour off with a bang by hitting the stage with fellow buddies in Point North. Quinn collaborated with Point North on a song called “Into the Dark” where he came out and had a very vibrant and energetic performance belting it out with lead singer Jon Lundin. The crowd went wild, no surprise there. The energy from the start of this show was absolutely incredible. You could feel the ground shake, the air get hot, and every person in the room just become overwhelmed with pure nostalgia as Kellin performed another ground breaking collab. What a way to start it off boys. Who can’t forget the hit “King For A Day” by Pierce the Veil ft. Mr. Kellin Quinn himself from back in 2009 where it all started. This song was featured on Pierce the Veil’s third album, ‘Collide With The Sky’. This match made in music heaven went Platinum this year. Congrats on the collaboration of a lifetime gentlemen. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
Sleeping with Sirens announced the 21 date, headlining tour, “The Medicine Tour“, that ran across North America, 2020. This new journey for SWS started in Lincoln, Nebraska on January 8, 2020 and wrapped up in Grand Rapids, Michigan on February 8th. Grand Rapids, former home of lead singer Kellin Quinn, before moving back to Oregon would produce an entirely new level of excitement for the fans. Mother of Kellin, Lisa, got a different view of her son performing when she crowd surfed to the stage receiving a blown kiss from the frontman. This, winning her Mom of the Year for sure.
“Baptized by the hands of Kellin’s fans…thanks to all of you that held me up and didn’t drop me! It was SO cool! I highly recommend it.”

These relentlessly touring boys deserve a much needed break, but won’t stop as they are on a roll with their fans falling more in love with SWS and their music now more than ever. The Sleeping with Sirens family is growing by the day and cannot wait to see what the boys bring to the table next. Quinn has released a collaboration with Oregon based band, Roseburg last year. Be sure to check it out. Quinn released a live acoustic video for this song late last this year. Roseburg is set to release their debut album “Righteous Punk” on February 18th. Look forward to the soon to be released song “Time Bomb” by Halflives featuring Kellin Quinn himself. Their EP ‘Resilience’ is set to be released on March 13th. The newest release is “Upside Down” by Hollywood Undead ft. Kellin Quinn. Kellin and the boys are on an uphill ride and I don’t see them stopping any time soon. Sleeping with Sirens released two live videos from the Electric Ballroom in London on their previous tour, here’s to crossing our fingers and hoping the United States gets one this tour. Sleeping with Sirens sure know how to not make their fans feel lost. A great year is ahead, let’s cheers to this because this makes us all feel warm inisde. See you on the road SWS fans!
