Sleep Token – the mysterious masked metal quartet shrouded in anonymity – have dropped a surprise new single and accompanying animated video. Titled “Chokehold,” this is the band’s first release since their powerful sophomore album, This Place Will Become Your Tomb and it packs a punch!

Epic riffs, pulsating grooves, Vessel’s unmistakable vocal delivery…it all creates a heavy emotional atmosphere for fans to get lost within.

Accompanying the new single is an equally spooky animation video with an armoured beastie wielding an axe – could they be launching a mascot!?

Sleep Token has pulled off one of the most unconventional ascensions in metal history, making waves with two studio albums and plenty of live shows without ever revealing who they are. They will be touring the UK later this month, dates and tickets are below.

Sleep Token “Chokehold” Lyrics

When we were made
It was no accident
We were tangled up like branches in a flood
I come as a blade
A sacred guardian
So you keep me sharp and test my worth in blood

You got me in a chokehold
You got me in a chokehold
You’ve got me in a…

Beneath the stormy seas
Above the mountain peaks
It’s all the same to me
It makes no difference
I’ve seen my days unfold
And the impossible
I’ll turn my walls to gold to bring you home again
So show me that which I can not see
Even if it hurts me
Even if I can’t sleep
Oh, and though we act out of our holy duty to be constantly awake

You’ve got me in a chokehold
You’ve got me in a chokehold
You’ve got me in a chokehold
You’ve got me in a chokehold

Even if it hurts me
Even if I can’t sleep
Show me the way
