They've released a brand new on the road documentary, and it gets pretty wild.

While She Sleeps have released a new tour documentary, The West.

It charts their journey across the United States and Canada, supporting 'You Are We' - and was directed and edited by bassist Aaran McKenzie.

Three things we learned from it?

First, it's important to take time for the occasional bus mosh...



Also, Canada looks really, really really, really nice (and cold).



Aaaaaaaand WSS throw the best (weirdest? Maybe that too) surprise birthday parties.



Watch the whole thing here:



And check out some more of Sleeps at their finest:



Plus, here's frontman Loz Taylor on the huge success of their independent 'You Are We' era so far:

YOU'VE PUT A LOT OF WORK IN ACROSS THE BOARD IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS. HAVE THINGS WORKED HOW YOU WANTED THEM TO? ARE YOU PLEASED THAT YOU DID PUT IN THE WORK TO GET WHERE YOU ARE AND BE STANDING TALL AS AN INDEPENDENT BAND WITH SO MUCH SUCCESS?
"It still shocks me whenever we walk out on to a stage in general that people would want to hear me shout my head off. It’s always a nice feeling when that happens. We’re very humbled by it and we don’t take it for granted at all."

"In our career, going through things like throat surgery and working through that as a band. Some of the guys have known each other since year 8 at school, so when you look back and try and explain stuff and say that we’ve had a 13 or 14-year apprenticeship to get to where we are. So it’s nice and not everybody gets that opportunity.

"We are grateful that people like us and listen to our band and want to come and sing along with us at shows and enjoy watching our band play. We are always humbled by it and never take it for granted. Not to make our heads big but it’s always a really nice feeling when we sit around on tours and watch videos we have put up from past tours and go ‘bloody hell this was 7 years ago’.  Like where does the time go, but also none of us would have it any other way. We’ve put the work in but the fact we have the fan base there that still wants to see us play and people keep finding out about us is unbelievable."
