ARMOR FOR SLEEP have announced that they will be reuniting for a one-off appearance at this year’s Bamboozle Festival, which takes place in May in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
The festival’s Facebook page issued the following statement:
To me, the need to bring back Armor for Sleep for some kind of reunion or farewell shows was never really something I was dying to do. Walking away from it was hard enough so entering that whole world again seemed easier just not to think about. But then I got to talking to Tone about Bamboozle. Bamboozle was in many ways our birthplace. It was the first time promoters gave us a chance to showcase who we were. We started building our fan-base there and we owe a lot of the success we had to Bamboozle (and Skate and Surf) for giving us a chance at the beginning.
When Tone mentioned that Bamboozle was back at Asbury Park this year I kind of froze. We kicked around the idea of doing something just to have a book-end on a huge part of our lives that never had an ending. For the first time since we disbanded I felt like playing Bamboozle this year would be the perfect way to officially end what was so special to us and to so many of you as well. So Bamboozle reached out. And we accepted.
