Australian post rockers SLEEPMAKESWAVES premiere new track “To Light And Then Return”

1 min read

The spareness and sense of space, as well as breathtaking cinematic experience in SLEEPMAKESWAVES‘ work has always been remarkable, and it’s only getting better on their just-annoucned new record. We have teamed up with Pelagic Records to give you the first exclusive listen of their new track “To Light And Then Return”, a varied, electronic tinged, riff-driven track that moves naturally, where imagination runs free. Listen below and scroll down to check out the previously released track “Toundra”!

SLEEPMAKESWAVES‘ third album Made of Breath comes out on March 31, 2017 through Pelagic Records! The record was tracked and produced by Nick DiDia (RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, PEARL JAM, KARNIVOOL). Pre-orders are up now at this location.

During a recent reddit AMA, bassist/keyboard player Alex Wilson described the third sleepmakeswaves opus as having the “up-tempo pace and intensity” of their previous album “but there are more straight-up riffs and overall, it’s angrier, sadder, and heavier.”

In late 2016, the band put out a call to fans to help raise funds for their third album and a world tour through pre-orders via Australian crowdfunding site Pozible. They raised over $40,000 to cover the remaining costs of producing the record, which follows 2014’s ARIA-nominated & J Award- nominated Love of Cartography.

In February, the band will kick off their touring as main support for reunited post-hardcore veterans UNDEROATH at a series of sold out theatre shows around Australia. In March, they will begin their headlining run in China with a 10-date tour playing their biggest clubs and theatres to date. Afterwards, they will return home to launch the new album with a headlining Australian tour, followed by New Zealand dates and another Australian tour, as direct support for progressive rock icon DEVIN TOWNSEND at theatres across the continents. Tours in the US and Europe are in the making for later in the year.
