Since the start of their career, the members of the British alternative metal band Sleep Token have kept their identities under wraps. When they perform live, the band wears cloaks and masks, making it impossible to see what they actually look like.

While this mystique makes for an awesome component of Sleep Token’s artistry, scammers have taken advantage of the band’s secrecy and have attempted to con some of the band’s fanbase.

In a new statement that was released via Sleep Token’s Instagram Stories, the band warns their fans of scammers pretending to be part of “the Sleep Token collective.” Regarding this warning, Sleep Token shares the following (as transcribed and shared by Metal Hammer):

“Followers, it has been brought to our attention that a number of unscrupulous individuals have been masquerading as members of the Sleep Token collective, in order to exploit members of our extended community.

“Let it be known that any unsolicited contact from ANY person claiming to be a member of the collective should be disregarded, and their profile reported to the relevant administration. We thank you for your understanding.”

Many bands have had to put out statements like this in order to protect their fans. Earlier this year, Metallica‘s James Hetfield warned his fans of scammers pretending to be him on social media.

Below you can find a screenshot of Sleep Token’s statement.

In other Sleep Token-related news, Lorna Shore singer Will Ramos has expressed interest in collaborating with the band. Corey Taylor is also a fan of Sleep Token and has even compared them to Slipknot.
