Watch: A fan let off an almighty fart during a Sleep Token gig and totally killed the vibe

Sometimes, you just gotta let it out. A Sleep Token fan has become an unwitting internet celebrity after accidentally, er, letting rip during one of the quieter, more emotionally intense moments of a recent show in Sydney, Australia. 

The show took place at the Metro Theatre over the weekend (Saturday, April 29), with the much-hyped masked metallers just over midway through a typically intense and emotionally powerful set as they played through their song Atlantic, taken from critically acclaimed 2021 sophomore album This Place Will Become Your Tomb. During one of the track's quieter, more delicate moments, however, one fan decided to risk it all - and it didn't pay off.

As heard on a now inevitably viral video posted online, a huge, blaring fart can be heard ringing out across the venue right in front of the band, with sections of the crowd immediately breaking out in laughter. 

Ever the pros, Sleep Token didn't bat an eyelid (at least we assume they didn't - they're under masks, after all), and continued to play through a scintillating, 13-track set that ended with The Offering, taken from 2019 debut album Sundowning

Watch the hilarious moment below, and pray for the souls of the poor concertgoers that were caught in the crossfire.

Sleep Token are set to have a busy second half to the year, with new album Take Me Back To Eden coming on May 19 via Spinefarm, and a host of European summer dates following their current Australia run. After that, they'll be heading out to the US for their very first Stateside headline tour.
