sleepmakes​waves to tour with Karnivool & Dead Letter Circus in January

Australia’s two biggest progressive rock exports KARNIVOOL and DEAD LETTER CIRCUS have teamed up with post-rock trailblazers SLEEPMAKESWAVES for a massive Australian tour this summer.
The Polymorphism tour will kick off Jan 8th at the Palace Theatre in Melbourne, before visiting Brisbane, Coolangatta, Coffs Harbour, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong and wrapping up at a massive show at Red Hill Auditorium in Karnivool’s hometown of Perth on Jan 23rd.
Both Karnivool & Dead Letter Circus are touring heavily with new albums: Karnivool’s third album Asymmetry debuted at #1 in July, while Dead Letter Circus’ The Catalyst Fire was their second #2 ARIA chart placing. Having played a string of major European festivals earlier this year, Karnivool are currently touring Europe including sold-out shows in London, Brussels, Munich and Paris. Dead Letter Circus are now in the US, following headline dates and festivals in South Africa and Europe.
Sydney instrumental post-rock/prog quartet sleepmakeswaves have had an amazing run since the release of their debut album “…and so we destroyed everything.”  Over the past two years, their busy schedule has included 7 Australian tours, 2 European tours, touring the USA and playing SXSW, supports for 65daysofstatic, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Karnivool – and an unprecedented nomination for an ARIA Award in 2012. Currently in the middle of a mammoth 38-date tour of the UK and Europe, sleepmakeswaves will release their much-anticipated second album in 2014.
 
“We can think of no better way to kick off 2014 than to accompany our amazing friends Karnivool and Dead Letter Circus on a January Australian tour! Honoured to be joining such a lineup. Looking forward to seeing you again, Australia <3″

sleepmakeswaves announce Australian tour for June/July

Sydney ambient/melodic post-rockers SLEEPMAKESWAVES have announced a massive national tour for June & July. Taking in 6 states (and 1 territory) the ‘…and so we played everything’ tour will take the band’s epic and climactic live show around the country, in their only headline tour for 2013.
 
The shows follow a massive 2012, which saw them tour Australia, the US and Europe; and even an ARIA nomination for their debut album, “…and so we destroyed everything.”
Their jam-packed international touring schedule follows the success of their debut album which has been featured on national and international radio including triple j, the BBC and spending 7 weeks on CMJ’s Top 200. It was also named in year-end lists including Drum Media and Sputnik.
Most recently, the band have released a collection of remixes, featuring contributions from 65daysofstatic, Rosetta, Kyson, Tangled Thoughts of Leaving, Serious Beak, Atlantis, Glasfrosch and Klue. The album is cheekily titled “…and then they remixed everything”
with the remixes from Kyson & 65daysosfstatic featuring on Triple J, FBi, RTR, 4zzz, PBS and community radio nationwide.
 
The latest remix to hit radio is True Vibe Nation member Klue’s funky breakdown of ‘to you they are birds, to me they are voices in the forest’ which features the epic track converted into a danceable jam.

The aptly titled ‘…and so we played everything’ tour will also see sleepmakeswaves premiering a host of fresh new material, following intense writing sessions over the past few months. With alternating sets each night and a brand new light show, this will be the band’s only Australian headline tour of 2013 and comes ahead of further international touring announcements – and then finally, the recording of their much-anticipated second album.

sleepmakeswaves re-release ‘in today already walks tomorrow’

Sydney’s sleepmakeswaves have recently returned from their first US and European tours, which included Austin’s SXSW festival and a co-headlining appearance at Belgium’s Dunk Festival alongside 65daysofstatic.
Following the success of their album “…and so we destroyed everything” the band have announced they are re-releasing their debut EP ‘In Today Already Walks Tomorrow’.
Upon its release in 2008, ITAWT was touted as one of the most promising “post-rock” debuts of the year, anchored by fan favourite ’one day you will teach me to let go of my fears.’ Acclaimed online music community The Silent Ballet listed the track in their top 30 songs from 2008 alongside releases from Sigur Ros, Mogwai, Earth and The Samuel Jackson Five
The re-release comes with the news that yet more dates have sold out on the band’s Australian tour with Karnivool in July.
