So awesome news in my inbox today – northern California’s Sleepy Sun is set to release a new EP on October 15, featuring a couple tracks – “11:32” (which you can stream below); and “The Lane”. 11:32 is a hard-driving punch to the thorax, with all their fuzz pedals turned past the max.
I absolutely love these guys, I have both of their last two albums – “Fever” and “Spine Hits” on my iPhone (and I interviewed Bret in the spring of 2012). Which is saying something, because I just recently had to get a new (well, refurbished) iPhone, and peeled back a lot of the music that was syncing over. And both Sleepy Sun albums remain.
The band just signed an international record deal with Dine Alone Records, and details of their fourth full-length will be announced soon. In the meantime, they’re touring the US with City And Colour this fall – dates below. Expect some Canadian dates for later this year, and into next. Will they travel to Edmonton again? Too soon to say.
