I’m kind of surprised Sleep scheduled more shows, as there didn’t really seem to be any love lost between Al Cisneros and Matt Pike on stage when they played Brooklyn last year — it ruled, was certainly better than whatever else I might have been doing that night, but it was almost like watching two separate gigs happening at the same time where the two bands happened to be simultaneously playing different parts of the same songs — but hey, a Sleep show is a Sleep show, and I’ll be there. Inevitably this leads to the “new album?” question, but no word on that yet. Not sure how I feel about it, to be honest with you.
The PR wire has the short and sweet details:
Legendary stoner rock band Sleep has just announced a string of summer North American tour dates. On the heels of its sold out US tour run last September, the California trio will return to the stage this summer by popular demand. Live dates in NYC (June 22) and Los Angeles (June 26) will bookend an appearance at the Sled Island Music and Arts Festival in Calgary, AB on June 24, where the group will share the stage with The Dandy Warhols, Blonde Redhead, The Buzzcocks and more.
Sleep tour dates:
06/22 New York, NY Terminal 5
06/24 Calgary, AB Sled Island Festival
06/26 Los Angeles, CA The Wiltern
